Another thread broached this fascinating topic. I am not posting this in the music ministry forum because I would like to see the discussion limited to Fundamentalist Baptists. I am an Independent Fundamental Baptist. My msic style is very conservative. Saying that, I am not bound to the major IFB music centres or ministries. I am well aware of Dr Garlock's philosophy of music listed below. I do not want nor will I as moderator allow any kind of attack on Dr Garlock in this thread. I heard these same things at one of his seminars. I am mostly interested in a proper discussion of the last point. Does the Bible specifically teach that rhythm based music feeds the flesh? Does the Bible teach that rhythm based music causes our spiritual side to starve and grow weak? What Bible basis do we have for that argument? Lets stick to a Bible discussion and leave the emotions out.
