Is Relient K a "Christian" Band?

ADVERTISEMENT

i recently read a blog by a guy named Ethan Luck. Ethan just so happens to be in this small Christian band named Relient K...maybe you've heard of them? if not, ask one of the youth in your church. they'll fill you in. anyways, so Relient K is playing a show in NYC with a band called The Gay Blades. it happens to be an old movie reference tied to the masked man, Zorro.

that's not how a vocal minority of the commenters on Relient K's facebook page see it though. many of these Christians feel disapointed, let down, mad or even disgusted that Relient K would associate themselves with a band called The Gay Blades, let alone share the stage with them, just because the word gay is mentioned.

so here's my thing, we hear people often quote Paul in his words to the Christian church about refraining from eating meat, if eating that meat would cause a weaker Christian brother to, in layman's terms, "freak out". we also see Jesus continuously hang out with prostitutes, diseased people, the homeless and dirty old tax collectors (back in the day they were the "lawyers" and "politicians" of their time), but with the purpose of loving them and sharing the hope found in his grace (aka, evangelizing).

so which is it here? love the bands they play with that may or may not be Christians as well as play in a venue that may or may not be a "Christian" venue? OR...play only "Christian" venues and minister only to Christians so as not to offend Christians who are weak in their faith? what do you think?
