SERMON INFO
Without a shadow of doubt, the Reformed theologians and confessions of the 16th century upheld the Regulative Principle of Worship (RPW) which states that the Church may worship God in no other way than He has commanded in His word.

As the Reformers understood it, the RPW applied not only to preaching and sacraments, they also maintained it forbid use of musical instruments in worship and that it required the use of only inspired canonical psalms. Today, many Reformed argue that the RPW applies to song in only a general way, maintaining that worship songs are a mere circumstance of worship (WCF 1:6), and are governed by common sense and basic principles of Scripture.

This message covers the history of the Church's long-standing commitment to psalm-singing, shows the Biblical basis for the RPW, and then shows how song as an element of worship is strictly regulated by Scripture which requires the exclusive use of inspired psalms.

Finally, this message takes on 4 common arguments against the historic Reformed position on psalms in worship and then provides brief refutation of these common arguments made against exclusive psalmody.

“ Great Sermon! ”
Enjoyed your message very much - it makes so many relevant points about being Reformed. Just a little sad that you seem to tolerate modern versions when God has preserved His word through the received text best represented in the KJ Authorised Version.
