Comments on: "Lift your Voice! (Worship Scriptures)" (8)

  1. Mr. B.,

    We did not publish your comment because we are trying to keep the focus of our blog on the subject matter that we believe God called us to deal with. We are primarily a worship blog, with some general info that relates to lifestyle worship. We are aware that there are a plethora of issues that we could address. Although we are very thankful for people such as yourself, who have a real passion for a variety of extremely important areas of ministry, we don’t feel that God has directed us to become an issue-oriented blog (other than dealing with issues involving worship). For this reason, we are going to monitor comments carefully and try not to alter the direction that we feel the Lord has given us. We did publish one comment about Proclaim worship software and one from a man who does translation work that eventually allows the gospel to reach un-reached people groups (with translation of scripture and worship songs as one of the goals). These topics are much more related to our work.

    We would suggest that you look for issues-focused blogs, facebook pages and groups, and LinkedIn groups, where the focus would allow for some great feedback for you and where the intent of the sites is more in keeping with the discussion of issues. On Linkedin, there are some groups for songwriters, which would allow you to publicize your music and message.

    Blessings to you,
    Travis and Cynthia

    I truly treasure your work, Great post.


    • Thank you, Jamie. It has been a joy to read through the Bible and to research in online concordances to find all of these worship scriptures. This is the most complete worship scripture page we’ve found in our internet searches, but it is not comprehensive. There are still additional worship scriptures that can be posted. Thank you for giving us some inspiration to continue this work.

      Travis and Cynthia
