The Psalms are the Church’s Bible-Music-Tether

Doug Wilson has some excellent thoughts on why the church should always sing, though not exclusively sing, the Psalms. Here’s his conclusion:

When the larger church gave up singing psalms, we were untethered from our God-given baseline. Just as sermons drift away from the truth when they cease to be expository, so also the musical portion of the worship service drifts away from the truth when we don’t have regular musical reminders of what God considers appropriate vocal praise. Because we have refused to ask God to “break their evil arms,” we have wound up where we now are, singing “Jesus is my girlfriend” music. We are convinced that the way out of this cul de sac is to recover the singing of psalms. And that is what we are trying to do.
