An idea that’s often discussed but will probably never be resolved is the use of secular music in the worship service. Ralph from Freeman’s Lounge writes:
With different perspectives, contexts, and opinions on the issue, I’ll try to cover it from a broader angle. More and more churches are playing “secular music” in their services. It’s happening both with the live band on stage, and in the background music to ministrations. What was once unthinkable to many is now a common place in churches all across the World even in Nigeria. What’s going on? Why is this happening? Should we be worried or is it no big deal?
Ralph lists four reasons why some churches use secular songs in worship settings. And rather than coming to a solid conclusion, he’s looking to start a conversation, so check out the full post and leave some comments.
