De ce sint (em) Penticostalii asa de galagiosi?

Trebuie sa admit ca imi place stilul cintarii postata mai jos. Sper ca sintem galagiosi pentru ca sintem multumitori si ii datoram mult, foarte mult Dumnezeului nostru care si-a dat Fiul Sau pentru noi. La urma urmei, Dumnezeu cunoaste intentia si  inima omului.

L-am auzit pe Bob Kauflin (autorul cartii „Worship Matters’ zicind  ca in Psalmul 47, Dumnezeu ne comanda ca sa il laudam prin cintare si ne spune sa ne invatam si sa ne sfatuim prin cintari, cintind cu multumire in inima noastra.

Psalmi 47

1(Către mai marele cîntăreţilor. Un psalm făcut de fiii lui Core.) Bateţi din palme, toate popoarele! Înălţaţi lui Dumnezeu strigăte de bucurie!

2Căci Domnul, Cel Prea Înalt, este înfricoşat: El este Împărat mare peste tot pămîntul.3El ne supune popoarele, El pune neamurile supt picioarele noastre.  4El ne alege moştenirea, slava lui Iacov, pe care -l iubeşte. –

5Dumnezeu Se suie în mijlocul strigătelor de biruinţă, Domnul înaintează în sunetul trîmbiţei.

6Cîntaţi lui Dumnezeu, cîntaţi! Cîntaţi Împăratului nostru, cîntaţi! 7Căci Dumnezeu este împărat peste tot pămîntul: cîntaţi o cîntare înţeleaptă!

8Dumnezeu împărăţeşte peste neamuri, Dumnezeu şade pe scaunul Lui de domnie cel sfînt. 9Domnitorii popoarelor se adună împreună cu poporul Dumnezeului lui Avraam; căci ale lui Dumnezeu sînt scuturile pămîntului: El este mai înalt şi mai pe sus de orice.

Si in Coloseni 3:16

16Cuvîntul lui Hristos să locuiască din belşug în voi în toată înţelepciunea. Învăţaţi-vă şi sfătuiţi-vă unii pe alţii cu psalmi, cu cîntări de laudă şi cu cîntări duhovniceşti, cîntînd lui Dumnezeu cu mulţămire în inima voastră.

cinta :It’s the greatest feeling- being washed in the blood!

      I don’t think they are representative of most Pentecostals, what I found fascinating is their style of singing (the singers and the church). As you know, in our own churches we are way more conservative, most people cannot raise their hands to God, even as they sing about raised hands, because as I remember our style of Worship in Romania was very somber and with no bodily movement at all. Maybe, it’s because we did not think too highly of ‘joy’. Or maybe the communist times pressed on us too hard. But, I do remember some noisy prayer meetings as a kid and I have visited many ‘joyful’ and ‘loud’ churches here in the U.S.A.

      I couldn’t help but comment..I am very involved in music and worship and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with letting ourselves rejoice when we find ourselves in God’s presence…take for example king David, a man after God’s own heart…the way he danced with joy in God’s presence and tore off his clothes..I’m not suggesting we tear off our clothes but just as a child rejoices when he is happy and jumps around almost unable to contain their emotion of happiness, I think that God is not offended by that sort of authentic emotion and joy we feel for him for what he has done for us. After all, Jesus did say that we must first become like children if we are to enter the kingdom of God.

        Angi, I am with you on that. I didn’t know people can sing this way until I visited some American churches. I added a video to the post worth viewing from Bob Kaufman (author of Worship Matters). When you have time please view all of them on this page and pass them along to your worship team and anyone that loves to sing. It is a Biblical understanding of Church worship. Let me know what you think of the Kaufman videos. PS for easy future access they are permanently placed in the Categories (on right side of blog) under the Theologians heading. I prefer joyful and expressive music and there’s is solid Biblical support for it. It is not a generational thing, like we may have thought before. I also saved all the music video pages in Categories under ‘Musical’.

      Hey, thanks for the book recommendation, I’m adding it to my list. And, as usual, you have the thought provoking questions. He can twist it into evil, my our allowing it to become our idol, which is my next post in the series on music (coming soon). I would like to hear your answer and/or thoughts on the subject since you are also involved in the music worship ministry.

    Actually i am not involved at all in music,there was too much music in may family , so i rebelled.But i have another question, can a music style that was borne in people that were high on heroine be in the same time glorifying God?

      If you’re asking if there are particular music styles that are inappropriate, then, yes, there are some. I’m not sure you can categorize music styles. For example secular ‘rap music’ or ‘hip hop’ is very suggestive and expletive-laden, but I have also seen the Romanian hip hop group ‘Pocaitii’ and I think their ‘Dezvaluiri’ video is fantastic testimony to the kids of their generation. And their testimony of how they came to know Jesus Christ is even more impressive (in their TV interviews).
