Conflict Over Styles of Worship?

As long as we have had organized church and people with personal preferences, there has been conflict over styles of worship. Take a look at this brief video that adds some humor to the conflict in worship.


What style of worship do you prefer?  Why?

    I am a member of the Praise Team. I grew up in a Baptist Church. My Father was a Pastor. I’m used to worshiping, lifting hands, playing a tambourine, really enjoying worship. When the preacher preaches saying Amen. Just allowing God to use me. Participating in all aspects of the service. Church now, does not. They are quiet. I don’t want to quench the spirit. Some have said we are Baptist. I know lots of Baptist that worship. What should I do?

    What we think doesn’t really matter. We need to study music and see how does God view this issue. I fear we are often asking God to conform to our prefrences, because we are unwilling to conform to His. I think we all will be amazed at how different music will be in heaven and how much like the world we have become.

    It really doesn’t make a difference what style or the type of music, if the Holy Spirit is not in it, you might as well go home. If the congregation worships G-d in spirit and truth then, G-d will show up and after all, that’s what we really want isn’t it?

    I prefer to mix both old hymns (even with a modern sound) and also the latest songs. By that I believe I can reach both the old people and the youths in our church. As for the incense and lava lamps etc I like to keep P&W on a spiritual level and try not to use things that can distract the audience.
    As when giving a concert, now that is something else. During a concert you are allowed to put on stage what ever you like.
