Brother, you can't use an excuse like that. It's like saying "show me where in the Bible it says I shouldn't beat my wife". It doesn't! But their are principles there that tell me I shouldn't. It says to "Love your wife". A loving man will not beat his wife. However, someone, who beat their wife, might defend themselves by saying "It's not in the Bible".
And to further illustrate, another thing which people often defend, because it is not in the Bible, is "loving" themselves. I won't mention what I actually mean, and love has nothing to do with it. Anyway, the Bible doesn't say "Don't do that!" directly, but it tells us to flee youthful lusts etc. I am sure most young men (and young women too, and probably older men and women) struggle with this, but there are many who DEFEND this position, claiming the Bible is silent on it, so it must be okay.
Now Chris, I am NOT comparing beating up wives and the other thing, to Rock Music (although a link would probably appear if you took a huge survey of wifebeaters and the music they liked).
