Should We Sing Worship Songs from Churches with Bad Theology?

Episode 989 Show Notes 

From the Show

The book of Psalms covers all of the different emotions we have. There’s nothing wrong with upbeat praise songs, but in the Psalms we also have the laments. And I wonder if we miss out on these laments, like God is not speaking to us, or the feeling of struggling with sin and feeling forsaken by God.

Should We Sing Worship Songs from Churches with Bad Theology?

Questions in this Episode

  1. How should I approach Christians who disagree with me about abortion?
  2.  If salvation is a gift, what role do works play in the Christian life?
  3. My husband and I have a question about the worship music from Bethel, Elevation Church, & Hillsong, but mostly worship music that comes from churches that preach false teachings like health and wealth prosperity teachings. As we moved from the big church we were attending and are now looking for another church that is one thing we have been convicted on, should we be concerned if a church plays songs from these churches? What should we look for in worship?
  4. What does it mean to fear God?
