Why Do I Post Praise and Worship Music on This Blog?

Given my concern about Christian music, expressed here and here, someone might ask, “Why are you willing to post Christian music on this site?”  Similarly, someone might ask, “If you think today’s churches are distracting people from God’s kingdom, why do you post music that comes from committed church people?”

My answer is:

Matthew 23:3 …all that they tell you, do and observe, but do not do according to their deeds; for they say things and do not do them.

That is, today’s churches are man-made, and they say and sing things that they do not do.  For example, church members today sing of reliance on Jesus but actually practice a reliance upon church.  (See Church Is Not the Answer; Christ Is.)

Therefore, take the good and scriptural words from today’s praise and worship music…and do them.  Your life will change, for the word of God always changes us when we take it to heart and practice it.
