Hymn-Theology is more important than we know. It’s amazing to think of how many people learn theology from hymns rather than directly from the Bible.
Lyrics have always been intriguing for me and poetry as well as word pictures are powerful communicators.
As a worship leader and Bible teacher/student/enthusiast, I think it is of vital importance to properly vet the songs we choose.
Think about how powerful music is just from the perspective of a mnemonic device and the weight of our responsibility to choose theologically-accurate songs becomes clear.
At the same time, I have a passion to celebrate well-written lyrics.
