Presbyterian Church (USA) drops In Christ Alone from hymnal

An extraordinary dispute has arisen over a lyric contained one of the most beloved contemporary Christian hymns of the modern-day Church, "In Christ Alone".

According to Bob Smietana of USA Today, the committee putting together a new hymnal for the Presbyterian Church (USA) dropped the popular hymn because the song's authors refused to change a phrase about the wrath of God.

He said that the original lyrics say that "on that cross, as Jesus died, the wrath of God was satisfied."

The Presbyterian Committee on Congregational Song wanted to substitute the words, "the love of God was magnified." ...

POnly
Seems strange a Psalms Only (Presbyterian) Type would refer to a Roman Catholic Archbishop and 'call' him an ancient theologian.
Why?

Psalms Only wrote:
"Critics say the proposed change was sparked by liberals wanting to take God's wrath out of the hymnal"
Essentially this is an argument about theology. I thought Liberals had banished theology from their churches? But no they are arguing over the word "satisfied" an ancient conclusion of the just as ancient theologian Anselm. So in the midst of all this pretext of worship which has been changed into entertainment by the hymn singers, we have a variety of theological terms which form the basis for a literal war of words between the myriad of hermeneutics.
The great thing about using the Word of God to praise God is that there is no disagreements. Psalms Only is the way to go and even God agrees with the theology established in them.
What a pity you hymn singers have such a polemical life when the Lord has already established His praise and recorded it in the Bible for His Church.
I agree

Methinks you will also have to become polemicalistic when the word is changed from "the wicked shall be turned into hell" unto "the ignorant shall go down to the grave".

Well, the article was more interesting from what occurs in the usual dreary church committees, though apparently PCUSA, which could well be considered an enemy of Israel, Anti-Semitism in the Presbyterian Church, probably as far as some of them are concerned, Christian Zionists: The Real Terrorists

Christian Today, I noticed had a more interesting article about,
Bible Society bookshops attacked in Egypt
. I'm not all that excited about some theological hair-splitting happening in the PCUSA.
