Duration: 1 hr 18 mins 28 secs
I want to address what I believe is really at the center of the whole debate about music in worship. There are many issues that could be addressed, of course, such as worldliness or the morality of music. But when it comes down to the differences of conviction regarding the purpose of music in worship that lead to differences over what kind of music is appropriate for worship, I am convinced that at its essence, such differences are different understandings of the nature of worship itself.

Passage: 1 Peter 1:13-19
Series: 2013 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference
Duration: 1 hr 33 mins 45 secs
The missional church movement has significantly influenced evangelical churches in recent years, especially through its philosophy of evangelism and worship. Missional advo­cates argue that the church is part of the missio Dei—the mission of God—and thus it must see its ministries as fitting within that mission. Essential to the accomplishment of that mission is embedding the church in its target culture, which missional authors call “incarnation.” In order to evangelize a culture, they argue, churches must contextualize the message of the gospel in the culture. According to the grandfather of the missional movement, Lesslie Newbigin, contextualization is “the placing of the gospel in the total context of a culture at a particular moment, a moment that is shaped by the past and looks to the future.”
