What Is The Biblical Approach To Music
In The Church And In The Life Of The
Throughout the New Testament as well as
the Old, biblical music and singing is
vocal, joyful and respectful to God and
finds its origin with 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 purpose.
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 kind
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 and methodology of your church is very
revealing about the intent and motive
that drives that ministry. The fact is:
what motivates us, conforms us, thus,
methodology is conceived. For
many Churches, the devil has a
manipulating strong hold in the area of
music. Churches across all
denominational lines have been seduced
to a false obligation to provide a
non-convicting environment through the
use of musical enhancement and

preacher, declared with conviction:
The devil has
seldom done a cleverer thing than
hinting to the Church that part of their
mission is to provide entertainment for
the people, with a view to winning
them... providing amusement for the
people is nowhere spoken of in the
Scriptures as a function of the
Church...The need is biblical doctrine,
so understood and felt that it sets men
The character of Biblically based music
is distinctly different in its origin
and purpose. It is not
intended to draw the world... it is
separate from the world.
Unlike biblical music, worldly
music with religion sprinkled on it, is
at its core a predator for the emotion
of the vulnerable and
while biblical based methodology in music compels
devotion to the one and only true God...
