Have you ever sang about joo-joo eyeball, toe-jam football, monkey finger, and walrus gumboot at your Sunday church worship service? Kensington Troy did during their 09-11-2016 Sunday worship service.
This isn’t the type of singing scripture tells to use when we come together during worship.
Ephesians 5:18-19 ESV
18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, 19 addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, 20 giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
Worship lyrics should be distinctly bible centric, not Beatles centric. Let’s come together around scripture, not around joo-joo eyeball, and monkey finger.
