Hi, all. I was recently involved in a discussion with an EP'er who brought up the idea of "mediate inspiration," and seemed genuinely surprised that I had never heard of it. I suspect that it is an idea developed by some in the EP camp to battle the criticism that they do NOT sing "inspired hymns." Rather, they sing paraphrases of translations of copies of the inspired text. I asked him if he had a confessional basis for the concept, but he has not answered. Can anyone shed some light on this? Thanks!
