    Those who might have a hymnal laying around.

    Would you look through it and find musical selections that might not agree with your theological view?

    For instance:

    "We've a story to tell to the nations" is a song that seems to hold to the amillennial view. Wouldn't it be a bit problematic for a pre-mil assembly to sing it?

    What can you find?

    Perhaps it isn't the whole song, but a phrase that you consider flawed.

    For instance:

    "Radiant beams from thy holy face" - Silent Night

    What can you music minded folks find?

    While I "freely" acknowledge that there will be no more posts in this thread to rival that of Glfredrick, I'll add one more:



    "The Joy we share, as we tarry there, none other has ever known."

    True. If this line was correct, then the rest of us would be in a heap of trouble, no?

    Ok, I know it's not in the hymnal, But what about the song "Days of Elijah"?

    I have a Master's degree from Seminary, and I have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA WHAT THIS SONG IS ABOUT!

    To me, lyrically and musically, it sounds like a song that someone would write if they wanted to make fun of modern worship music.

    Just my 2 cents.
