Does God care as much as we do about the style of music that we use to worship and sing praises to Him? Is the style of music the filter in which He puts our worship through to decide if He will accept it or not? I don’t think so.
skreyola says this about our preferences in style …
Individual preferences are important, as well as individual giftings and location. They are secondary in importance, but they exist for several reasons. So, it is legitimate for people to want to find a worship service where their preferences are respected and, to some small degree, kept in mind during planning and decision making.
I am not, however, talking about mere whims or caprices. Neither of these should direct the path of a congregation one step. The caprices of the day, the fashions and fads, and the base desires of the natural man do not approach the importance of sound doctrine and the Holy Spirit’s leading. But what I am saying is that God has given the Body of Christ not only various functions but also various preferences.
I agree. I’m so thankful for all the variety and differences in the people around me. We aren’t all the same. But what ever style of music we prefer to get to God in our hearts we have to get there the same way… on His terms, not ours. John 4:24 says, “God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth.”
We all have particular tastes and preferences, but at the end of the day worship is not about us and all about Him.
