Can We Praise God With Any Style of Music?

Hi R____,

Thank you for your question.
You ask:

There is nothing in scripture which restricts us to any particular type of music with which we should be praising God and exhorting one another.
There is very much in the scriptures which tell us that the lyrics to our music should be based upon the Word of God.
Here is a good guideline for all you do, whether it has to do with the type of music you play, the lyrics you write or sing, or anything else you do in life.

1Co 10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
Col 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

I hope these verses of scripture give you some guidance in this matter.

Your brother in Christ,
Mike
