Truth outlasts tunes

Bob Kauflin responds to concerns raised in Greg Gilbert's provocatively titled "Against Music." Both should be read by anyone concerned about congregational worship. From Kauflin's comments:
Congregations need to be taught that being emotionally moved by music is not the same as being morally changed by the Spirit. That misunderstanding can occur both in both modern and traditional contexts. Churches must be taught that worship is not the same as music and extends far beyond it, and that Christ’s accomplishments matter more than ours when it comes to worshipping God. They need to learn that it’s the Gospel that unites us, not a musical style, and that truth outlasts tunes.
