This is a fascinating look at how this subject is NOT settled within the Churches of Christ:
I suppose to Johnny, Norm and James, the churches that have decided to experiment with musical instruments in worship are apostate.
But, what about the point made in the article with reference to Calvin? James, Norm and Johnny, where is your biblical authority for singing songs that aren’t scriptural songs, like the Psalms? And for singing non-unison songs?
PS – let me just say this – I am not arguing against churches being “acappella-only”. If your church worships this way, then I think it’s great! My point is that people shouldn’t be using money given for the spread of the Gospel to purchase airtime where they are going to spend a great deal of time and energy telling others in the Body of Christ that they are going to hell for using musical instruments in their worship of the Lord.
