Rhythm and blues (also known as R&B, R'n'B or RnB) is the name given to a wide-ranging genre of popular music first created by African Americans in the late 1940s and early 1950s. The term was originally used by record companies to refer to recordings bought predominantly by African Americans, at a time when "urbane, rocking, jazz based music with a heavy, insistent beat" was becoming more popular.
The term has subsequently had a number of shifts in meaning. Starting in the 1960s, after this style of music contributed to the development of rock and roll, the term R&B became used - particularly by white groups — to refer to music styles that developed from and incorporated electric blues, as well as gospel and soul music. By the 1970s, the term rhythm and blues was being used as a blanket term to describe soul and funk. Since the 1990s, the term Contemporary R&B is now mainly used to refer to a modern version of soul and funk-influenced pop music.Source(s): http://www.christianforums.com

Any kind of music is accepted by the Christian churches as long as the message follows Christian teachings.

There is no such thing as a "true" Christian. A faith in Jesus is the ONLY requirement.
Churches are social constructions anyway. If the members like R&B then it is accepted.Source(s): Non-Abrahamic Theist

I guess, it depends on what the lyrics are. Al Green is a preacher now. Go figure.
