If she is a christian why she calling it lame that people look at them as a Christian band she's in directly denying God and a true believer will never ever do that.
Amy Keep It real dont run away from who you are!!!
Event though someone might be Christian their music might not be directed to spreading the word of Christianity or any sort of religious aptituted. If Evanescence was a Christian band than a lot of their lyrics would create some sort of controversy with many Christians.
Besides, not all of the members in Evanescence are Christians.

They would be good at christian they need to save their hearts God would love more of is children in his kingdom. I think they should just try one song in christian music. They'd be like another flyleaf but better!!!

Well listening to October by Amy, I found it religiously based, but it's still a beautiful song, and when I get my voice, believe I will belt it out whereever I am. I couldn't care lass if they were aethiest or what ever, statanists are a bit much because they speak of the darkness within life, that makes the music that much more powerful because they speak on subjects like abuse, betrayl, sucidice and the like. I personally love the band and really can't see life without them

Well, dude, Christians aren't the only people with any sort of spirituality. There's tons of other religions out there, and asking oneself the big questions is a fundamentally human thing all humans do, Christian or otherwise. They're gothic-ish, of course they're gonna have spiritual or fantasy related song lyrics.

Well, they just aren't. They never were, so why say something else? It was all a misunderstanding. You're not walking up to random musicians and telling them to do Christian music, aren't you`?
Religion might be an important part of some people's lives, but there's other things that move ppl/drive them to do art.
Not all music can be suited to your personal likings, sorry.

first of all Evanescence started off as a Christian band. And I think Ben Moody is on the right path. You may love her voice but she's just trapped in darkness......we all need to be set free.....Jesus is the Way the Truth and the Life
Well, Amy said they NEVER WERE anything like that... go listen to their early material, like Origin or the EPs. What's remotely "Christian" about them?

i know how it feels when somebody judge you, i think that amy is a great singer,, if she sings gospel songs or not , thats no metter,(is my opinion)cuz if she know like she said on tourniquete ""my God return to me salvation" but if she is playing to be christian in one site and in other not is her desicion i i dont think that she can made this. if she have knowlwdge about the bible says.
That song's lyrics say "My God!" like ppl say it when they are shocked. Just listen to it. It's about someone KILLING THEMSELVES in a situation of war, about being, to quote the lyrics "Too lost to be saved". How does that fit "christian values"?

I am just confused on this whole thing. I honestly don't care what their "label" is, but I'm confused as to why Amy says she's a Christian and proud of it, but she curses... maybe that's just because she wants to, but she still follows God? idk... I just hope she's solid in Him...

Ummm... And who are you, anyway? Amy Lee and the rest of the band are CHRISTAN!!! Amy just doesn't wanna turn into a stupid religious band!!! And I don't blame her!! No offence but I think religious bands are lame, too. Plus, Ben Moody (the worst person on earth, no offence WATF fans,) wanted a religious band, and Amy hates Ben. Der... Sorry, I may be making a point already made but, NO ONE disses Amy, kay?

Amy and the band members are Christian and they have spiritual lyrics they have said things about God and Jesus and they have biblical references in their songs but also, their music talks about stuff like betrayal, death, fear etc. and have you ever heard Chris Tomlin or any other Christian groups or singers talk about that? Nope. If they were a full on Christian group don't you think there song would be like actual Christian bands? Now they do have positive messages in there songs if you think about it, but that doesn't mean they're Christian.

Also they have never ever said one word about satan. Not one so I think it's ridiculous for people to say that they are 100% satanic when they've never said anything about it.
Amy said that she is a Christian and she's proud to be a Christian. So yeah. But once again they are not a 100% Christian band.
