How Should We Pick Songs To Sing In Church?

Mark Altrogge pastor of Sovereign Grace Church of Indiana, PA, has written an excellent article, "How Should We Pick Songs To Sing In Church?".  In this article Mark outlines criteria for selecting the songs we sing in worship.

...we should choose songs that:
  • Are doctrinally sound (Is it biblically accurate?  Years ago, we sang a song about blowing a trumpet and victory and when I looked up the passage in the Bible it was about God’s judgment on his people)
  • Are significant  (“Joy is the flag flown from the castle of my heart when the king is in residence there” – wave your handkerchief above your head as you sing -  it’s probably true but is it significant?)

Good article. Thanks. I especially liked the part about "musical setting appropriate to the lyrical content".
