Traditional VS Modern Worship
Saturday. 5.10.08 11:43 pm
My goodness at how people, christian people will fight about what type of music they sing in church. It is always the old people want hymns and the kids want a band singing CCM. It's rediculous Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins and we fight and quarrel about somthing so trivial as worship music. I think it is a shame.

My little southern baptist church is not immune by no means. Madison Street Baptist 800+ members. Only 80 attend. We get about 10 - 20 people under age 40 (youth) any given sunday. The rest WWII vets and thier widows and wives. It is a battle for sure. The older crowd want to stick only with hymns and the pastor and music director and the rest of the church want CCM and praise.

I myself want to move completly to CCM and praise. I take that phrase about let everything with breath praise the Lord seriously. The Lord can be praised with any instrument. So I think everyone according to thier talent should use it to sing praise to God. Singers should sing, Bassist should rumble, Guitarsist should strum, drummers should beat loud and precise and ect. Everone else sing and thank God. In fact I don't think man can ever orchastrate any song and praise worthy of Gods attention. But we should try and try and try again. Totally strive for perfection.

So what is so wrong with my view? Let me ask you people that think one kind of praise is better than another. Is that what God told you? Or is that you saying that. If the latter, you may have not totally surrendered your ideas to Jesus.

In summary I attended Madison Street Baptist before the new worship leader. The new worship leader trying to slip CCM on us with his Martin accoustic. Back when we sang from the church hymnal each sunday, and sung it all outta tune. I don't care for it. I feel like God can't be worshiped loud and passionate enough. But I know the ideal of unity trumps all my feelings I will stay out of the fight. I got my opinion but if singing hymns would bring unity in my church lets get out our hymnal and turn to #39.

Three cheers for thinking clearly!
CCM= Contemporary Christian Music?
