WWIII (Worship Wars, again) April 5, 2006

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the worship waters, you hear the dreadful sound of one generation sinking their teeth into another’s worship. This time, Chuck Colson’s well-written editorial (here) has created quite a firestorm in blogdom (HT: JTaylor). In his editorial entitled “Soothing Ourselves to Death,” Colson critiques the lyrics as those that could be exchanged between highschool sweethearts.

Sam Storm (here) provides a respectful (and respectable) critique.

In times like these, we all need to remember that worship should direct us toward Christ and engage us in seeking Him. His truth is always relevant, and never dry, dusty, and despondent. Never an end in itself, may the music we choose serve to point others toward Christ and His gospel. Without that, all music lacks purpose.
