Is this the latest worship music craze? Ugh! Even Charles Finney would walk out in protest!

This is a typical example of a man centred song. Literally…

Seriously, where are the good  song writers of old? People who wrote God exalting lyrics with profound depth. Songs and hymns that didn’t need and still don’t need any gimmicks and body paint.

    Humanism at its best! So sad the church thinks that this is true worship.

    Contrast that with this English hymn.

    Lord, enthroned in heavenly splendor,
    first-begotten from the dead.
    Thou alone, our strong defender,
    liftest up thy people’s head.
    Alleluia! Alleluia!
    Jesus, true and living bread!

    Here our humblest homage pay we,
    here in loving reverence bow;
    here for faith’s discernment pray we,
    lest we fail to know thee now.
    Alleluia! Alleluia!
    Thou art here, we ask not how.

    Though the lowliest form doth veil thee
    as of old in Bethlehem,
    here as there thine angels hail thee,
    branch and flower of Jesse’s stem.
    Alleluia! Alleluia!
    We in worship join with them.

    Paschal Lamb, thine offering, finished
    once for all when thou was slain,
    in its fullness undiminished
    shall for evermore remain.
    Alleluia! Alleluia!
    Cleansing souls from every stain.

    Life-imparting heavenly Manna,
    stricken Rock with streaming side,
    heaven and earth with loud hosanna
    worship thee, the Lamb who died.
    Alleluia! Alleluia!
    Risen, ascended, glorified!

    Hurts. Just had to stop it. Stop it!
