Music in Worship (part 5)

In this video, the discussion is focused on music in worship. Scripture should govern us in how we worship God.

    Excellent video series and topic. It is very timely for sure. I do have an issue with a few statements made. I heard the word “vain repetition,” “tacky,” describing some of our modern praise songs. Psalm 136 uses the statement “His mercy endureth for ever” over and over and over gain. Just look at the first 4 verses and it continues on this way the entire 26 verses.

    1 O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

    2 O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth for ever.

    3 O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth for ever.

    4 To him who alone doeth great wonders: for his mercy endureth for ever.

    Would we dare say this is “tacky” or “shallow” even if it only touches the surface of the great doctrines of the Word of God? Of course not, it is the inspired Word.

    I think the issue is sound and needs to be discussed, but when the argument uses such terms as “tacky” and “shallow” well… i find it even more divisive and to be honest, insulting. I say this in love and for the most part in agreement with the “heart” of the discussion.

    Don, It’s always good to hear from you. I appreciate your comments. I learned a lot from these guys and the care they give to the planning of a corporate worship service. Psalm 136 is indeed repetitive. I think that warning from Scripture on vain repetition is the concern of saying something just to say that it’s been said or because it generates an emotion that doesn’t have its origination from the Spirit.

    Thanks for your observation. It helps give a rounded observation to this serious issue for the church.
