The Worship Wars


Two dangers that face churches today in the debate about worship styles are the temptation to blindly chase after worldly fads and the desire to turn a worship service into an historic reenactment. The first absolutizes cultural changes with no thought to the continuity of the body of Christ throughout history; the second absolutizes a particular culture and time and therefore denies the Gospel the ability to transform a culture and to create a worship style fitting to that culture and time.

Hmmm. Not sure if it's so much absolutizing as creating a constant... Interesting.

That's pretty much what I meant. A particular culture/time becomes an absolute constant for all times and places or the principle of change itself becomes the constant.
