Subject: Oh, My Goodness.... Put Your Foot Down, Indeed!


You can read the Internet Monk's post here.  I really don't want to repeat it since it would require also repeating the words to this pathetic example of a contemporary worship song that is all over the charts and the praise band circuit...

But you should probably go here and read it for yourself.

Suffice it to say that his conclusion is worth repeating:

Build congregations, not audiences.


Make disciples, not entertainment or emotional thrill seekers.


As with all areas of ministry, lead people toward maturity.


Treat worship music as another form of speaking and hearing God's own Word.


Honor the music of the church by demanding quality and depth and artistic integrity.


Put your foot down.
