Organs and hymns make it biblical? Your kind of pushing it here, ‘nator.

You are isolating one aspect of this bit. You can’t pull out a line or two to stand alone or the context is gone. What I am satirizing is the Seeker “package” which includes rock bands. And, yes, hymns that are rich with scripture are more Biblical than secular rock tunes and many of the “Jesus is my girlfriend” types of contemporary ditties. Thanks.

True, we should not water down the message. But my point is that it’s not the style of music or tune or instrument that makes it biblical, but the content. Music is just a product of the time it was written. I’m pretty sure Jesus never rocked out to a guitar riff, but I’m also pretty sure he never sang a hymn or danced to an organ either.
Anyway…keep ’em coming. 🙂

May I suggest, if I dare, as to not offend anyone here….that we may also want to ask the pastor in charge to please, please, please, and another please, eliminate the cute, meaningful stories about his family, friends, and himself, cut out the bragging and boasting on this one and that one in his pew sanctuary as their self esteem is already healthy enough and where repentance is a dirty word, and to please take that screen out to the garbage dump and burn it, and to beg for forgiveness as he no longer asks for all of us to open up our Bibles and read, in context, verse upon verse of our Holy Scriptures.
Has the Word of God become a fossil in the church buildings of today?
Sorry to be so contrite.

Well-timed and well-made point. Don’t worry about offending. If you are correct, those who get offended are the ones on the wrong side of the issue. Thanks for contributing.
