My Journey Away from Contemporary #Worship Music

TO JOEL WATTS:

“Over the years when I would occasionally hear a hymn, the language¬†was always strikingly foreign, with Ebenezers and bulwarks, diadems and fetters. Which only served to confirm my bias that hymns were simply out-of-date. They had served their purpose. They had run their course”

This post is an exact description of my journey! For the few conversations I had with Joel Watts on this issue, he feels either exactly the same way or in a similar way! In my view the “link” between us, current Christians (avoiding the word “actual”) and those who came before us, who left us a¬†legacy of Christian worship, has been broken and that is perhaps the most harming aspect of the obsession for what is called “contemporary worship” which is in and of itself a contradiction of terms, as if God planned and desired to be worship differently in different epochs… So, read this article and I hope it helps someone who, as a “current Christian” desiring to keep up with his times, has somehow despised the old hymns.
