I didn't know whether this should be in the music or theology forum. Our choir has just started working on "When the Holy Ghost Comes Down." "You can't have church until the Holy Ghost shows up" is the first line. (Yes, we are SBC. No, we are not charismatic.) The rest basically says that all that we do is useless unless the Spirit of the Lord comes down. Can someone give a scriptural basis for the Spirit coming down in a worship service? Another part of the song comes from "Brethern We Have Met To Worship." "All is vain unless the Spirit of the Holy One comes down." This is straight out of the old Baptist hymnal. I know that not a lot of poor theology got past the editors of that. Is there a difference in what these two songs are saying? You folks on the Baptist Board have really caused me to pay attention to what we are singing.
