Musical Instruments in Modern Music of the Church
Posted: Tue Aug 25, 2009 8:39 am
If we have been commanded to use only vocal style music in modern church worship, which is what I am gathering from what I have been reading throughout your study, then why does God consitently show up and show Himself strong in thousands of worship services around the world today despite the fact that we are using musical instruments? I don't think that The One True Living God who is perfect in all His ways, who is without sin, be in our midst if we were practicing something that is, in your mind, so clearly wrong. As a matter of fact, in our worhsip services, sometimes the presence of God is so powerful that words cannot describe our emotions, and "instrumental music" becomes true worship. It is a common occurance for our "instrumental music" to become prophetic, out of it comes lyrical content that glorifies God and admonishes people. Who are you to try and say that God is going to reject my/our worship towards Him based only on the fact that we are using "instrumental music" to worship Him. By the way, Worship is a lifestyle, we live worship, we breathe worship. Do you think that the fact that I use "instrumental music" in my cooperate worship services negates my lifestyle of worhsip towards God? Maybe you should pray about what worship truley is and you will find the truth that you "truthseekers" are looking for, true worship isn't about music, vocally or instrumentally, its about your lifestyle, and your motivation for holiness. The Bible tells us that if we seek him with all our hearts we will find Him, The Bible also tells us that He is the Truth, Maybe instead of seeking answers to unnecessary debatable questions, you should seek Him. Maybe you should try fueling the fires of unity among the body of Christ instead of encouraging debate that you obviously don't understand yourself. Let us be a people who are "Godseekers" that is the only way to fully understand the revelation of His truths.
