Words of Controversial Wisdom from Someone Else Don’t Blame Me I Just Repeated It But I Do Think They Are Wise So Take Them Under Advisement and May the Lord Grant You Wisdom

Here are two arguments I took down from a conversation I had with a musically oriented older man who has significant seminary training. I offer them for your consideration; I thought they were wise:

  • When people are dancing and acting without inhibition at a rock concert they’re not dancing to a cultural association. And it’s probably not primarily the text that’s driving them.
  • If someone says that the Scripture says anything about musical style, you might ask whether or not there are any dancing styles they consider wrong. The Bible says nothing about bad dancing styles.
