Occasionally someone will post on a blog about music in church. There are those who like choruses and those who prefer hymns. There are those who claim Christian should only sing Psalms, and at that without any instruments, since the New Testament doesn't mention them.
I was around when groups and artists like The 2nd Chapter of Acts and Keith Green were causing a stir by performing Christian rock in churches. Imagine that! Loud, electric guitars and drums in the church! Old timers said that rock music was of the devil. Then they would go to a concert of Southern Gospel music, with its quartets and music along the lines of Country. I think their grandparents would have said the same thing. Even Isaac Watts got in trouble for writing hymns sung to the tunes of the taverns and pubs.
At any rate, every generation brings yet another style of music to worship. And every previous generation says that music should be sung or listened to by Christians, since it's "of the devil."
So, what music honors God and what music doesn't? Let's see what the Bible says. The first mention of any kind of music is not in the Psalms, believe it or not. And it isn't David playing his harp for Saul. It's in Genesis 4:21. Here is the context:
"Then Lamech took for himself two wives: the name of one was Adah, and the name of the second was Zillah. And Adah bore Jabal. He was the father of those who dwell in tents and have livestock.
