True Worship Necessitates Good Theology.


“…Being moved emotionally is different from being changed spiritually. Music affects and helps us in many ways, but it doesn’t replace truth about God. Music can never by itself help us understand the meaning of God’s self-existence, the nature of the Incarnation, or Christ’s substitutionary atonement…For that, we need to read our Bibles. And to know what the Bible says, we need theology. Good theology…”

“…Good theology helps us keep music in its proper place. We learn that music isn’t an end in itself but rather a means of expressing the worship already present in out hearts through the new life we’ve received in Jesus Christ.”
