To emulate or not to emulate musicians

Last year, when I told a certain person that Michael Jackson had died, they scoffed: “Oh. That pedophile’s dead?”

Even now, it is extremely difficult for me to listen to the song PYT (“Pretty Young Thing” and from his 1982 album Thriller) without laughing.

Jackson was talented, yes, but for many they cannot get past his alleged activities.

It’s a little funny when you consider that many classical composers, such as Mozart and Beethoven, lived less-than-pristine personal lives.

Then there’s David: psalmist, musician, adulterer and murderer. Of course, as we learn in Psalm 51, David was very sorrowful over his sin. Of course, it’s possible Jackson was very sorrowful over his alleged indiscretions (he reportedly settled out of court with a few accusers and was acquitted in one public trial). Eternity will tell.
