Fans and followers of the Christian music duo Shane & Shane are expressing concern about the musical group's association with Bethel Music.
In a Facebook post on July 5, Shane & Shane announced they are performing at the October 23 Worship Now event at Red Rocks Amphitheater outside of Denver, Colorado. Other Christian artists performing at the event are Phil Wickham, Brandon Lake, Brian Johnson, Jenn Johnson and Jon Reddick.
Is it possible to not endorse or agree with Bethel church but still listen to their worship in a corporate setting? I'm not endorsing and promoting Bethel. I have concerns too. I understand that playing a church's music (in a sense) is viewed as promoting them. I get that, but there is a huge difference between direct promotion and indirect promotion because we have to legally acknowledge the source of the songs for licensing reasons.
