Can We Sing the National Anthem in Church?

Episode 1002 Show Notes 

From the Show

“When it comes to worship, gathering together as the covenant people of God, a local expression of that universal church throughout the entire world, I don’t think it’s appropriate to salute the flag of a country or to sing the national anthem. That’s just not what we should be doing in the church. We should be singing Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. We should be directing our gaze onto God and the gospel.”
