In the previous post, we pointed out the need for scriptural lyrics. The question for our consideration on this subject is, what do we do about unscriptural lyrics when we find them? There are some basic approaches, which we will consider in more detail below:
- Keep the lyric, but “reinterpret” or “qualify” its meaning.
- Alter the lyric to be scriptural
- Remove the offending verse or don’t sing the song at all
