Best Analogy on Ungodly Remixes

Best analogy I’ve seen outside of scripture on remixing secular music for the gospel.

It’s so genius because Jesus used that same analogy: “feeding people food sacrificed to idols”

Stacey Taylor:
“I agree, the Holy Spirit can supply all the components to make a whole song fresh from Heaven …That’s like if someone brought a poisonous meal to your house while you are sick, yet you take two bites and cant eat no more then you save the meal for a later date. You then have a small get together over and you put out the dish so you won’t waste it and you and your guest eat that poisonous meal and fall ill, or worse, dead. Those who know better do better.”

Did you hear the one about Martin Luther remixing Bar Music for the Church?

Totally false… Martin Luther actually advocated for holiness and creativity in music, and wrote music to wean people away from the popular love ballads of his day.

Quote here:

*The musical notation was simply a repeat sign, known in Luther’s day as a “bar”. Yes, believe it or not, some wacky American Lutherans saw Luther’s reference to “barred music” in German and changed the repeat sign into a pub! Why did Luther write positively about “bar(red) music”? Because it describes the musical form A A B. He thought that the repetition of the music of the first phrase would help in learning, and then the B phrase would give the balance of variety. Hence, many chorales are written in this way. The reason “bars” were used for notating this form was used to save ink & paper. Today we simply call these “repeat signs”.
