Sound theology should shape everything we do in corporate worship. But what does that mean for music in particular? Don Carson recently sat down with worship leaders Keith Getty and Matt Boswell to discuss the relationship between the truth we believe and the songs we sing.
“The revival in theology many TGC leaders have seen in our generation has happened because they discovered and learned from leaders of previous generations,” Getty observes. Losing our musical heritage, he warns, is a danger for our generation.
And though excellent worship songs aren’t less than declarations of orthodoxy, they are considerably more. As Carson remarks, “It’s easy to churn out orthodox theology; it’s not easy to say old things in new and creative ways.”
