A church in our area is re- evaluating everything they do to make sure they are doing what they should. Hope that makes sense. So far here is one area they are rethinking. I said I could get some "outsider" points of view for them, so here is your chance. This church has slowly transitioned theologically from classic free grace dispensationalism to reformed Baptist. I won't say Calvinist because even Calvin might not agree with some of today's Calvinism. Some of the church is like MacArthur, still holding to dispy end times beliefs and some do not. Some are Lordship Salvation and some are not. They aren't asking input on their theology. But here is the current topic to evaluate: they ask if their music is aligned with reformed theology and practice. Some are expressing the feeling that the musical part of the service is pure Pentecostal/Finney. That is to say, it is designed to evoke a specific emotional response. Or it is supposed to bring the congregation into a time of worship or into the presence of God. Some are asking if that tracks with reformed theology. Aren't those the job of the Holy Spirit? Can they accomplish that anyway as humans? They use CCLI, and they tell me that means they usually use songs from whatever the CCM top 20 list is that week. They are starting to question the theology of some of the songs, the purpose of those songs, etc. And asking if their music needs to make as radical a change as their theology has. Please don't debate their theology, whether you agree or disagree with it. Not looking for a Calvinist/Arminian debate. Are looking for a reformed perspective on how a Baptist church service should be done. Thanks for any help!
