David Murray recently posted a blog which prompts us to ask the question: who governs our worship?
Today, worship is often thought of in terms of style. A great divide has been established between contemporary and traditional worship. Style has become the governing principle for some churches. The older folks stick with their traditional style; the younger generation flocks toward the new. But is this a legitimate principle?
David Murray's comments directs us away from this relatively new distinction and points us to the important biblical idea of the regulative principle. What's the regulative principle? Simply put, God governs our worship.
And what a freeing principle this is! When we turn to Scripture and seek to follow God's direction in our worship, we are set free to worship Him according to His Word.
Check out Murray's post for a further explanation of the importance of this principle for the church today.
