What is your view of Christian Hymns today?

BLOG ON: SERMON What Christian Hymns Should Be
Sovereign Grace Baptist Church
John Skaggs
The attached sermon is a reflection of what I believe a hymn ought to look like. I have been saddened when I attend churches where the old style hymns are rarely if ever used in the worship services. Try as I might I cannot find food for my soul in the modern choruses that are so often focused on us instead of God. Further if God is the focus in the song the music and the constant repetition of the same words soon make me wish I had stayed home and read my Bible.

I know some believe that the churches music must be modern for modern man, but I do not. The church, in my opinion, must be different and separate from the world if it is to be a sanctuary - a place to escape the world, its wickedness, its self centered frame of mind, and even its music. What do you think about this?

Implications of "The Possibility of Loosing ones Salvation."
PERMANENT NOTICE
Posted by: Sovereign Grace Baptist Church | more..
I grew up in the Pentecostal world; my mother was in fact a Pentecostal Pastor. The subject of women Pastors can be discussed later. What I consider most important is the topic indicated by the title. If a Christian can loose their salvation based on their daily commission of sin then we must conclude that salvation is not of grace but of works instead. True grace is bestowed upon a person in spite of their sinful past, present, or future. Therefore, the salvation that accompanies and is the result of grace cannot ever depend on ones behavior. The believer’s salvation depends solely on Christ's fulfillment of the law for us.

The Bible does tell us that true saving faith produces and sustains a behavior governed and directed by the scriptures. Very simply true faith "works" that is, it causes the redeemed sinner to live for God as instructed. This living will never be perfect but it is consistent in that the true Christian ever longs to obey the moral law, "Love the Lord with all your heart, soul, mind and strength and you neighbor as yourself." In Romans 7 Paul reveals clearly the daily experience of the Christian. He or she loves the law of God and desires to keep it perfectly. However as our brother reveals, there is a contest between natures that we do not always win. We want to obey but we often times do not. Do we then loose our salvation? No we do not loose our salvation because Christ has fulfilled the law for us. Therefore, in spite of our occasional sin; acceptance with God is secure based on the perfect righteousness of Christ imputed to us through faith in Christ.

What is my point? My point is that any so-called "Christian Denomination" that teaches that one can loose their salvation cannot be Christian. Such Denominations speak of grace in the presentation of their Gospel. But after one has "accepted Christ" they are told that they can loose their salvation if they are not obedient to God. In effect the preaching of grace is ruined or nullified by the inclusion of law or rules that must be kept in order for one to remain saved. When law is added to grace the Bible says "grace is no more grace."

Romans 11:5-6

"Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. 6 But if it is by grace, it is no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace."

Romans 3:28

"For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law."

Romans 4:13

"For the promise to Abraham or to his descendants that he would be heir of the world was not through the Law, but through the righteousness of faith. 14 For if those who are of the Law are heirs, faith is made void and the promise is nullified; 15 for the Law brings about wrath, but where there is no law, there also is no violation."

Long story short - if you are part of a church that requires you to live up to a certain standard in order to remain saved, forgiven, heaven bound, then you are not part of a Biblical Church. You are not part of a Christian Church - grace and law for securing salvation or keeping salvation cannot be mixed - otherwise you leave the world of Christianity.
