Says who #11
The problem with contemporary Christian praise and worship is that its object defies the very thing it claims to be doing. They are songs of a desperate man denying himself the right to his God. There was a time when we used to know the object of worship when both congregation and choir sang facing the Icon. Instead of offering his veneration to his God through hymns the contemporary man offers himself the comfort of an experience through the musicians onstage. Bach trounces the modern church any day in the retelling of God's amazing grace.
