Music, Complexity, and Spiritual Maturity

Scott Aniol recommends a Mars Hill Church video on Isaac Watts . . . and publishes a thoughtful piece arguing that we need to weigh seriously the associations of our music. Hmmm . . . It's a complicated world, but I'm convinced that recognizing that complexity, and leading believers to weigh how they might glorify God amid that complexity, are essential steps in cultivating spiritual discernment and maturity.

How encouraging it is to see Christian thinkers increasingly grapple with difficult issues related to worldliness and godliness without resorting to the papal pronouncements of times past.
