Here are some of questions that arise when I listen to this kind of music:

  3. How is this any different from popular Christian music?
  4. If this had “really really good words,” (let’s say “really really good” Christian words) would that make this music acceptable as Christian worship?
  5. Do you really believe that non-Christians listening to popular Christian “worship” music find this any less strange than you found this piece?
