As he says near the end, "Please consider these points carefully and recognize what I am not saying. This isn't just some plea for 'traditional' worship and a critique of 'contemporary' worship. Don't mistake this as a defense of pipe organs and a critique of guitars and drums (or banjos and mandolins). My concern isn't with style, but with form: What are we trying to do when we 'lead worship?'"
His three main points are as follows:
- If we, the congregation, can't hear ourselves, it's not worship.
- If we, the congregation, can't sing along, it's not worship.
- If you, the praise band, are the center of attention, it's not worship.
