OK, I heard it again. And without mincing words (who does that anymore?) I gotta say I’m insulted. Because people keep saying they “miss the old hymns in church.” And they say things like, “Only the old hymns stay true to the Bible.” Or something like, “Music, in churches these days, is repetitious ME focused drivel. Modern songs just seem to leave out the Bible altogether.”
Well, I can’t say I disagree with most of that. But I DO take issue with one part.
Old hymns aren’t the only songs that are true to the Bible.
I know this for a fact. Because I’m a songwriter who’s keenly interested in rightly dividing the word of truth. And, for the most part, my “Christian music” is Biblically focused.
Here on TonyFunderburk.com, I talk, sing, and write about the things to help you understand why you’re here. And yes, my views are unapologetically Christian. But sometimes, in order to make sure there’s food on the Funderburk table, I sell stuff. Books. Music. T-shirts. And right now I’d like you to consider getting my Raise The Praise collection of praise and worship songs.
I wrote and produced them all. So, I take full responsibility for the content. But I believe you’ll discover music that’s anything but ME focused. I’ve shared a lot of the lyrics here on the website and with my email subscribers. And you’ll get the lyrics as part of the downloadable version. Raise The Praise is a collection 12 praise and worship songs on CD for $12 and the downloadable version for $7.97
And if you think I’ve lied about the messages, I’ll give you back your money.
But I believe the lyrics are rock solid. And they boldly stand up to the old hymns in solidarity. You decide for yourself, of course. So, just pick your favorite way to get songs and click or tap to get ’em.
As always…I’d love to hear your feedback. I hope they bless you as much as they did me as I wrote them. And I hope they encourage you to “Raise The Praise” to your living, loving Creator.
