this app was something i used multiple times a day, unfortunately there was no warning that if you updated to the 2.7 version that the app will no longer work on an iphone 3GS... this is very disappointing and i would love to be able to go back to version 2.6 so that i can use this app once again!!!!
Covenant of Grace wrote: oooh Look! Here is a novel hypothesis! Someone who wants to ditch the Old Testament??? What a "Disappointed" philosophy? Now who was it said "I come to fulfil the law and the prophets"? Oh Yes! The Son of God, the Crucified Christ stated that for all time to behold. Which means the OT was all about JESUS. Praise the Lord. Apparently Jesus disagrees with this "Disappointed" theorist!
Sigh!!! Must be a presby poster.
Do you even stop to consider the rubbish that fills your head?
Since you appear to know so much, do you want to give us your considered opinion about the issues involved in the continuity/discontinuity debate?
Let me make a few things clear for you. No one denies that the same gospel is presented in the OT/NT, or that Jesus came to fulfill the law, or that the Covt of Grace is present in the OT/NT etc. And it certainly is NOT about ditching the OT!

Leave subjectivity alone. Concentrate on the issues involved in the RPW and then think whether anywhere in the word of God we have any command from God to say that the book of Psalms is the ONLY authorised worship book for the NT church! I think you will find that there is not one such verse.
The rest of your post seeks to throw out the baby with the bath water!
That is why Psalms only advocates have to shout so much, because they think that makes up for the weakness of their case.
The Disciples worshipped the Lord Jesus. He is also worshipped in Heaven, for which we are being prepared!!
If you were to believe **Psalms Only** you would think that we're not to move into NT light.
One final observation John. The vast majority of people arguing for Psalms only come from the Presby camp. Now think about this .. which church party seeks to carry the OT practices into the NT because they see no discontinuity between the two? Hence, covenant children, infant baptism blah, blah blah, and now Psalms only! An inevitable result of their hermeneutics.
John UK wrote: I am very slowly going through some lectures about use of the psalms in public worship, and I must say the arguments so far have been overwhelmingly convincing. But I'm glad the men of God lecturing have so far not biblically prohibited the use of mens' songs in non-public situations. Some hymns are real treasures.
I'd have thought that you would have seen through this neo-calvinistic tendency too John.
Don't just consider the one side of the arguments. Are you happy to never to take the name of Jesus on your lips in public worship, or to speak of the glorious work that He accomplished only in types and shadows? Are you happy never to sing any praise to the Holy Spirit, because the main disclosures of the person and work of the Holy Spirit are in the NT and are not delineated in the OT? etc.
These Psalms only folk may be well intentioned, but they have misunderstood what the Regulative Principle is all about, and their vociferous claims have little substance.
