Pleasing God in Worship (DVD)
Even as American civilization has been undergoing massive alterations in its commitment to traditional American values and its Christian underpinnings, so churches of Christ have been experiencing sweeping change, especially in church worship. Indeed, Christendom as a whole has imbibed the restless spirit of the age to bring many changes to the basic doctrines of the Christian religion. To make religion more palatable to an entertainment-oriented culture, many churches have implemented “contemporary” worship (“inner-tainment”). This seminar explains the issues and applies biblical principles to arrive at solutions.
Questions addressed include:
How does the bible authorize human behavior?
Must we have God’s permission for our actions?
May we praise God in whatever way we choose as long as we are sincere?
May we applaud at baptisms?
May we clap when we sing?
Does Romans 15:11 authorize clapping?
May we lift up our arms in worship?
May we introduce “praise teams” into church assemblies?
