Music

Why is there no music in your church? Read 1 Corinthians 11:2

I have been asked these questions: Do you not like music? Why can we not have music in our service? Is it bad to do that?

We call ourselves Christians, and we are trying to establish and practice the doctrinal teachings of Jesus and the apostles. In order to do that we have to go back to history and look at what were the teachings of the early church. The book of Acts gives a clear picture of what they taught about salvation, church life and worship. Also, when we read world history, we have no evidence of instrumental music being used in the church. In fact many writers of the church fathers denounced instrumental music, since it had a lot to do with pagan worship. What we call church fathers were against using anything other than their voice to praise God. Instrumental music didn’t become a thing in religious worship until the 10th century. If we are to be called Christians, we need to do things the Christian way. The way Jesus and the apostles taught the church how to do it – SING!
