    We are commanded to make a joyful noise unto the Lord.

    Now, put on your thinking caps, and really think about this before replying....

    What, exactly is a joyful noise?

    I can tell you what it is not. It is not a Gregorian chant.

    Let all that have life or breath Praise the Lord! But Acts 17 even reminds me
    Even my breathing, labored tonight with a little congestion, is not something I DO, but something God gives me (and hence gets glory).

    I came from a Pentecostal/Charismatic background, so I know that this was often used as an excuse to go nuts. The word "noise" as used does mean to make a loud sound. However, not the confused sound of Charismatic worship. Rather, I believe it is an exhortation against singing timidly.

    hmmmm....

    Probably right there. Gregorian chant would probably come under the heading of "Be still, and know that I am God!" ;)

    I like some Gregorian chant.

    Oh well, y'all think I'm a little strange anyway.

    i am remined of a song that i love. it says that "a tear drop rolling down your cheek rolls like thunder in his ear" So to me a joyful noise
    doesn't have to be noisey. And anything that brings God glory is joyful.

    Joyful: "Full of, showing, or causing joy."

    Joy: "A vivid emotion of pleasure; extreme gladness."

    Has the Gregorian Chant ever caused extreme gladness?

    Jason :D

    Is there any way that we can keep sarcasm out of this thread?

    Caution: The sarcasm has been removed from this post. In fact, all humor that could be misconstrued with sarcasm has also been removed. :(

    BF: Since the meaning of Joyful is that which brings extreme gladness, I propose that a joyful noise would be music/speaking that lifts our hearts to the one who redeemed us and causes us to be still in his majesty, rejoice in his mercy, or shout/sing hallelujah to the King of kings!

    By the way, sorry about the sarcasm. :(

    I agree. Too much humor on the BB. [​IMG]

    Satire. Sarcasm. Witicism. All should be banned. :rolleyes:

    What about irony? :eek:

    BTW, all humor aside, wouldn't laughter - I mean big, hearty belly-laughs - be considered a "joyful noise"? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    To quote Monty Python's Piranha Brothers sketch: "He used...Sarcasm .He knew all the tricks...dramatic irony, metaphor, bathos, puns, parody, litotes, and, (whimper), satire"

    Careful there Dr Bob, that's how the Toronto thing started... :eek: :rolleyes:
