“I think it’s cool that we believe in a Bible, life manual, that covers everything from relationships & sex to spirituality & prophecy,” Moore wrote. “It shows us that though life is multi-dimensional, it should still be centered around Christ.

“On a mission to produce & create more music from that perspective. Music that the world can sing along to, and while they’re singing it, God uses it to sneak into the heart of the listener to do what He wants. Music that I can sing about my love for my wife, the same love that glorifies God. I want music about life and love that has a perspective that is safe for my kids who love God to listen to,” he continued.

“IT’S A NEW ERA FOR CHRISTIAN MUSIC‼️” Moore concluded. “Some have already caught the wave, and I’m about to make a big splash. What y’all think?”

As it turns out, his fans had quite a lot to say.

“I don’t think it’s needed and I don’t think God needs to ‘sneak’ a message anywhere,” one user wrote. “Thats what the devil does. My personal opinion is it’s a slippery slope… [at this point] and the time we’re living in I’m just like when will we al believers stop trying to pander to the world.”

“Music that speaks to more than you relationship with God? Naw man, when I listen to your music it puts me in a place of worship. Don’t start flirting with anything outside of that,” another user wrote.

One fan warned it “sounds like secular music trying to slip in” and cautioned Moore to not “get distracted with those Grammys.”

We need to realize that God does not need our help to save souls,” another user wrote. “His word says, if I be glorified, I will draw ALL men to myself. We were created to glorify and honor God, He alone does the conversion. Alot of sinners have repented through a gospel song. You don’t need to devise strategies to help God. He is God enough.

“If you chose to stop singing today, he will still remain God,” she continued. “We were called to be the light. Shine the light of God, that’s all. God will do the heart work. Your love song cannot change any man if God is not involve. My advise, stick to God’s calling on your life. And if you choose to go this route, please be absolutely sure this is where HE is leading you. We were not called to conform.”

Not all fans were against Moore’s idea, though. Some were genuinely excited at his new potential career path. One user even compared Moore’s desire to speak into culture to the apostle Paul in the New Testament.

In the New Testament, Paul applied the truth of Christ to tons of social situations that were highly relevant in culture to both edify the body and reach the lost,” the user wrote. “He even used gentile cultural frameworks (The Unknown god) to communicate the truth of Christ. The Great Commission (Evangelism) is a HUGE part of our faith and it can be done through music too!”
