Composing Spiritual Songs

I have given myself 3 sessions out of 5 for tomorrow's Praise and Worship seminar. I have no gift in song leading but as a worshipper of the Lord I have observed how worship is conducted for good or bad for more than 33 years. But I am looking forward to giving a session on composing spiritual songs. I will probably sing a couple of songs I composed in the Lord and how music and songs play a huge part in my Christian growth.  Until now, sometimes like Elisha I needed the music of the harpist to wait on the Lord and hear his voice (2 Kings 3).
When I was in Ranau for a scouting trip last November I was deeply moved by a spiritual song I heard at the College's graduation dinner so much so I got up at 3am and played what I recorded and sang before the Lord with my whole heart. I hope to inspire song writers to produce albums and per chance find one or two singers who could sing my songs in the Lord's temple for his glory and pleasure.

    According to the Supreme Court gay marriage is legal in the United States of America. The problem is being legal does not make it any less sinful. Being a homosexual is legal. Being an adulterer is legal. Having children out of wedlock is legal. Rejecting Jesus as the Son of God is legal. Being a liar is legal. Perverting the gospel by denying that water baptism is essential to the forgiveness of sins is legal.

    Because men keep the laws of man is no guarantee they are free from sin.


    Marriage is between a man and a woman. Matthew 19:4-6 (NASB)

    Homosexuality was a sin under the old covenant and is a sin under the new covenant. Leviticus 18:22 You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination. (NASB) 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.s (NASB)
