Music Does Matter In The Church?
What Is The Biblical Approach To Music
In The Church And The Life Of The
Throughout the New Testament as well as
the Old, biblical music and singing is
vocal, joyful and respectful to God (Exodus
Rev. 5:9). The use of a concordance
to find verses that contain the words:
"song," "singers" and "singing," will
confirm that God has purpose in music.
Notice particularly the special
assignments given to singers and the
special provision for singers in 2
Chronicles and Nehemiah. God also uses
trumpets, harps, and other musical
instruments for His purposes.
Satan also instigates the use of music
amongst God's people to enhance his
deceitful influence. Obviously, he has
accomplished his agenda amongst many
well intended Christians. Particularly,
we see a weak endeavor to know what
music comes from the heart of God and
what derives from the mind of Satan and
little desire to discern the difference.
The music pattern of your church is very
revealing about the intent and motive
that drives that ministry.
Biblically based music is not
intended to draw the world... it is
separate from the world.
Unlike biblical music, worldly/contempary
music with religion sprinkled on it, is
at its core a predator for the emotion
of the vulnerable and carnal believer...
while Biblical based music compels
devotion to the one and only true God...
