Living Worship

Wigtune Company is happy to announce that "Living Worship" is now available for FREE on the internet.  This in-depth biblical and historical Bible study for pastors, music ministers, praise bands, Sunday schools or any small group helps the Christian understand the type of worshipper God seeks.  Worship is the presentation of one's entire life to God.  Therefore, as well as uncovering the biblical and historical precedence for church musical and sacramental worship, "Living Worship" calls upon all believers to present their bodies as living sacrifices, holy and acceptable to God. (Romans 12:1)  A study of God's word cannot help but produce a body of Christians who shall worship God as they have never worshipped before!!!

"Living Worship" is presented in outline form with questions that require thoughtful answers to the scriptures and historical information as presented.  To use this study, you must be prepared for a lot of personal Bible time as you will be required to look up a number of bible verses in order to properly answer the questions.  A good Bible teacher always directs his students to scripture.  Therefore, "Living Worship" does not spoon-feed the participant, but rather requires the student to study the Bible him or herself in order to reach conclusions regarding the nature of biblical worship.

PART ONE

Knowing God

DOWNLOAD "LIVING WORSHIP"

How is the knowledge of God attained?

There are a multitude of people of different persuasions today who claim to know God. Likewise, many others are accredited with knowing God. Followers flock around worship leaders of various faiths who draw them into many experiences that produce enlightenment and pull on every emotion. Audiences today are impressed with those leaders who purport to have "experienced" God in a supernatural way. Those who have experienced the supernatural are said to be the "spiritual ones" who truly know God. Yet many of these acclaimed leaders direct their followers into serious error.

In light of the current non-Christian religious deception that has infiltrated Western culture, Christian leadership today carries with it a lot of responsibility. Most people view their Church leaders as ones who know God and have the ability to impart this knowledge to others. Because of non-Christian dogmas, there is a lot of confusion today (even in Christian circles) regarding how God can be known. Thus all those who desire to enter into public Christian ministry are duty-bound to understand what the Bible says about how God is known.

Saving faith must be more than sincere. It must be right. It must proceed out of a correct view of God that is based upon knowledge of Him founded in truth rather than vain imagination.

Worshippers of the true and living God must worship God’s way. It must be done in spirit and truth. John 4:21

PART TWO

WORSHIPPING GOD FOR WHO HE IS AND WHAT HE’S DONE

DOWNLOAD "LIVING WORSHIP"

The god of the world’s false religious system is an undefined entity. One modern representation of this god is the force in Star Wars that lacks personality, attributes or moral preference. Like the pagan Yin and Yang, the force of Star Wars could be used for both good and evil

According to pagan theology, man is at the center of his own universe. Because, to the pagan, God is all, then all men are gods themselves. Hence, God is made in man’s image and God is defined according to the characteristics of man.

Worship to the pagan, therefore, is man centered and focused on an undefined and non-absolute god who, like a chameleon, changes according to the dictates of each worshipper. The worship liturgy of this group of worshippers, therefore, needs to be very generic and undefined in its portrayal of god so that each worshipper can adapt the text to his/her own view of God. Because pagan worship is centered on man, it focuses on man’s needs rather than God’s nature. Because the foundation of truth to paganism is based upon what each individual "feels" is right (existentialism), pagan worship is founded on emotionalism.

The true and living God whom Christians worship has specific attributes and represents specific truths and moral principles that are external to man and unalterable. God also has a distinct personality and acts in specific ways based upon His nature.

According to the Bible, man has been fashioned in God’s image. Therefore, to understand man and where he stands in relation to eternity, one must know who God is. Rather than conforming God to his image, the Christian is shaped according to God’s will.

Since the Christian maintains a God-centered theology, worship is centered around God who has specific attributes and embodies absolute truth. Christian worship, therefore, is founded upon external absolutes determined by God’s nature rather than individual feelings and opinions. Hence the text of Christian praise, in order to distinguish itself from pagan ritual, must reflect the nature and works of God as defined according to how He has revealed Himself in His holy Word. Otherwise, too much about who God is and who is being worshipped will be left to individual imagination and personal beliefs.

Christian worship must call on worshippers to respond intelligently to the God of the Bible.

Romans 12:1-2

PART THREE

LIVING WORSHIP

DOWNLOAD "LIVING WORSHIP"

Pagan religions view worship as an event. It is something that occurs in a specific time and in a specific place. Worship to the pagan generally involves the act of transcending to the supernatural world through an altered state of mind. The mind is altered through the use of drugs and mantras. Mantras involve the use of repeated words that help the worshipper to escape the world by turning off his/her mind. Jesus Himself offered up a rebuke in regards to the utilization of these meaningless repetitive phrases. (Matt 6:7) In addition the pagan attempts to reach God through self-abasement exercises meant to appease. (I Kings 18:28) Jesus rebuked this type of activity as well. (Matt 6:16) The self-abasement or mutilation principle has created the pagan "worship leader" such as the Hindu yoga who attempts to "disappear" so that he can become a channel to God. If the worshipper’s attention is drawn to a person, it is believed that worship is hindered. Therefore, the gifts and abilities of the individual are suppressed in order to insure that God can be contacted without human distraction. This is believed because worship to the pagan is an event centered around the act of finding God. When one is using worship to connect with God, then humanity could only be an unwanted distraction.

Christian worship, on the other hand, emanates from a daily acknowledgment of the God who is there. People are not seen as obstacles to worship, but rather the vehicles of worship. God is glorified in the life of the believer and, as worshippers see His glory manifested through humanity, He is Glorified and worshipped all the more. Humanity and the gifts that God has given, are seen as attributes which inspire worship rather than being inhibitions. Christian worship is not an act of finding God, but rather a living response to the God who has revealed Himself in the creation, through His people and through His Holy Word. As Jesus explained to the woman at the well, Christian worship is not an event that occurs in a particular place and a specific time. Rather worship is a lifestyle accomplished in spirit and truth. (Jn 4:21-24). The Christian worshipper lives his entire life in an appropriate fashion before the ever-present God who is always near.

The following materials will uncover the nature of this lifestyle of worship as it is manifested in the believer’s life.

Those who worship the True and Living God

present their whole bodies before Him and an act of daily sacrifice.

Romans 12:1-2

PART FOUR

MUSIC IN CORPORATE WORSHIP

DOWNLOAD "LIVING WORSHIP"

 

There is a lively discussion today regarding the nature of music in the Church. People stand on each side of the fence proclaiming the truth of their position. On one side stand the traditionalists. They insist that the only music that the Church should be involved in are the hymns that have been passed down through the ages. They declare that the great doctrines of the Bible that are pronounced in these musical works are that which causes them to adore God all the more. On the other side of the controversy are the contemporary advocates who believe that only the praise choruses are adequate vehicles of worship inspiration. They insist that the hymns are too staunch, too wordy and too negligent of the personal element to be worshipful.

Music has been a source of argument for the Church since its foundation. Throughout Church history many musical trends have been followed. A look at these developments will provide a wealth of information in regards to the sources and value of the music that is being discussed among church attendees today. Hopefully within the following pages, the student of the Bible will uncover some answers to the questions that are being posed today. With that information, a suitable and biblical direction for church musical worship can be established.

Other than an investigation into musical styles that produce mantras, this study does not intend to advance one musical style over another. There will be no discussion promoting or discouraging the use of organ music, guitars or drums. The purpose of this study is to investigate the lyrical content and use of music in the Church in order to determine approaches that are theologically correct according to the understanding of Christian worship that has already been presented.

If the student is interested in promoting one style of music over another as that which is appropriate for church, he will be disappointed with this study. However, if he seeks for that which is biblical then many conflicts that exist today in the ever-continuing controversy involving music will be resolved.
