Music

There are 7,957 verses in the New Testament.  As best as I can tell about 20 have something to do with singing, songs or music.

That's only .2 %  (That's a decimal before the number two.)

Compare .2% with the percent of time that the average church spends worrying about music for Sunday morning.

Or how many people have left a church because of music?

I'm not even saying we should relegate music to a .2% role.  There is also plenty of Old Testament scripture about singing.  But in many ways the New Testament is a handbook for the church.  I guess I'm just saying we shouldn't elevate music to the 50+% role that it seems to currently occupy.
