Watch this clip of Matt Redman speaking candidly on romantic language in worship songs.
He makes some interesting comments on the issue. I especially like the quote, “The church has been under-fathered and over-mothered.”
I’ve always been a fan of Matt Redman’s music because his lyrics are very Bible-based. It’s refreshing to hear a ‘big name’ worship leader/artist be critical of his own music so candidly. His desire to stay true to Scripture certainly conveys his humble nature.
I have my thoughts and all but I’m interested to hear from you guys.
What do you guys think?
Too romantic? Inappropriate?
Is it all good in the name of intimacy?
P.S. I have officially regained the I-want-to-blog mood. Hopefully I’m not speaking too soon.
