Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs.

We sing Psalm 23 and 119 often. I'm sure there are others, but I can't think of them right now. We also sing scriptures which have been put to tunes.

-Rejoice in the Lord always
-Seek ye first the kingdom

Blessings,

Katie

Let's dig a little deeper here.

What is the definition of the term "worship"?

Most don't use the book of Psalms to prove authority. They use Eph. 5:19. They are pointing out it was said to speak to one another in psalms, which means, a song accompanied by instrumental music. So, the bible says it's ok.

I already know what argument you will come back with, but I'm telling you why others believe it makes it ok.

No one answered your post, but I will add additional thoughts to it.


Too, Colossians 3:16 says to "...admonish one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs."

Revelation 15:2 says the saints "held harps given them by God".

Psalm in the Greek (Strongs #5568) means "a set piece of music, i.e. a sacred ode (accompanied with the voice, harp or other instrument)." The root word "psalm" in Greek is "psallo", which means to twitch, twang or pluck, such as pluck a string of a musical instrument.

Why would God give the saints harps, if they were not to be used to worship and give glory to Him?

Some people go as far to say that musical instruments are the work of Satan. How absurd.

COL 2:20 Wherefore if you be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are you subject to ordinances,
COL 2:21 [Touch not; taste not; handle not;]

I believe that worship needs to be defined before your question can be addressed.
