Better Learn Why We Just Sing and Not Play!
By Johnie Edwards

If you have not learned that the Bible teaches us to just sing and not play a mechanical instrument of music, you better learn it. More and more, some Churches of Christ are using mechanical music in their worship. Yet the Bible still teaches us to just sing.

TEN SCRIPTURES: We all would do well to memorize the ten passages authorizing vocal music in worship.

Matthew 26:30 - "And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives."

Mark 14:26 - "And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives."

Acts 16:25 - "And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God; and the prisoners heard them."

Romans 15:9 - "And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy: as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name."

1 Corinthians 14:15 - "What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also."

Ephesians 5:19 - "Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord."

Colossians 3:16 - "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."

Hebrews 2:12 - "Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing unto thee."

Hebrews 13:15 - "By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name."

James 5:13 - "Is any among you afflicted, let him pray. Is any merry? Let him sing psalms."

WHY NO INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC? Only one reason: there is just no scriptural authority for using it in the worship of the church!
