Worship is all about God and only about Him. There is no room for any other second thought at all in worship except God. The question is in our present context and setup HOW FAR DO WE TRULY WORSHIP GOD AND GOD ALONE ?God wanted to raise a generation of worshipers through Joshua to break the wall of Jericho, just through the worship.

"I think Stevo's given you a very sound word here -- there's a lot in here that a lot of us would do well to take to heart in our relationship with Sound People (and they are People before they are Techs).

"Too many indents to reply to some of the recent responses, so I'll start fresh:

"Some problems I have seen in the last few years:

There is a song by Casting Crowns,

they shall be like wool.
19 If you are willing and obedient,
you will eat the good things of the land;
