# 00078 :  christian devotional songs in movies
Dear brethren

Yesterday it is happened to listen to our old favorite devtional song " INNU PAKAL MUZHUVAN...." in RADIO ASIA after the morning news. It was really refreshing to hear that song. The the thing made me upset was the announcement after the song " this song is from the movie FANTOM PAILY sung by .....(i could't hear the name due to some disturbance in the radio) even they did not mention the name of the lyricist. I do not know the circustances in this movie to include this song. But many a times our famous devotinal songs like "Enthathisayame Daivathin Sneham" have been mis used as singing by drunkards in movie.
My question is: Can we in any way stop the mis use of our devotional songs written by God's men and are sung by God's people to worship God for years ?
OR Should we ignore this?

Comments from believers are welocome
with Christian Greetings

Dear 'jojialackal,'

When Satan quoted the word of God, may not be exactly, it was not prohibited by our Lord Jesus Christ. Let them sing. We don't know how God will use it for His glory.

Remember, we must be careful in singing their songs.

Shalom malekim!!!

The only way to stop such attrocities against Spiritual songs is for the writers/composers to take copyright for the songs. Then the misuse will stop.

Another sad development we find is that because the Christian music cassette/cd is a billion dollar/rupee business, a lot of 'Hindu' composers are now engaged in writing "Christian" songs and mint a lot of money. Such songs are also written by composers from the nominal Christian background, like an IPS officer in Kerala, and many more.

Best is to go back to singing from our hearts and from our hymn books and buying cassettes/cd recorded by believers (composer, musicians, instrumentalists, sound engineers etc).

The World is now coming into these areas to make Spiritual worship a big show. These are elements of such encroachments. Let us beware.

Dear Bro Philip

You said "Such songs are also written by composers from the nominal Christian background, like an IPS officer in Kerala, and many more."

Personally I enjoy songs for the lyrics and music. Usually I don't bother to check out the writers.

But is it possible for non believers to write songs such as "thirunamakeerthanam" & "Sagarnagala Shanthmakeeyon"

Philippians 1:15-18 (NIV)

It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. The latter do so in love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains. But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice.
