Note: I’m having some computer issues. (It might be me, rather than the computer). At any rate, it is 8:30 P. M. So, I’m posting one of Dr. Tozer’s articles. I hope it is not a duplicate and that it will be profitable. His best to each of you! R.

The Problem of Church Music
It is ironic that the modernistic churches which deny the theology of the great hymns nevertheless sing them, and regenerated Christians who believe them are yet not singing them; in their stead are songs without theological content set to music without beauty.
Not our religious literature only and our hymnody have suffered from the notion that love to be true to itself must be silent in the presence of any and every abomination, but almost every phase of our church life has suffered also. Once a Bible and a hymnbook were enough to allow gospel Christians to express their joy in the public assembly, but now it requires tons of gadgets to satisfy the pagan appetites of persons who call themselves Christians.
