Controversy over church music is nothing new

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this post by Dan Kimball over at the Vintage Faith blog.  Dan writes about the controversy surrounding the introduction of the organ into church music.  According to one of the commenters, it took hundreds of years for the organ to be widely accepted.  Electric guitars and drum kits aren’t taking nearly that long…

There’s also a few interesting letters written by people protesting the introduction of the songs “Just As I Am” and “What a Friend We Have in Jesus”. 

Simply hilarious. Don’t forget to read the comments too.

Thanks to Stephen Barry for pointing it out.
