a reluctant atheist

I'm an atheist who wishes she wasn't. Life would be so much easier!

An Atheist who loves gospel music?

This article spoke to me on an elemental level. I’ve said before in my posts that I miss the church, but not the religion. I think A Borderline Atheist captures this very well. I also love the music. In fact, church music is some of the most beautiful music in the world, capturing a swelling, joyful sense of belief and glory.

Borderline Atheist

maxresdefault   Yes, You read the title correctly I am an atheist who loves gospel music. Ok, love might be a strong word, but I do enjoy gospel music, both the traditional gospel music and also R&B and Hip-hop/rap infused with gospel. Example Chance the Rapper’s latest mixtape “Coloring Book”, I’ve been listing to that nonstop, even though the theme of most the songs are about god. There’s even a line where Chance says …”I don’t believe in science, I believe in signs.” I don’t like this line, but I love this song, the song also starts off with the gospel song “How Great is Our God”, but I still love the song. That song and other rap/gospel, R&B/gospel, and gospel songs are full of energy,positivity  and soul. That’s why I like gospel music so much. When I listen to gospel I don’t really pay attention to all the praise…
