In light of Ephesians 5:19, whats the Biblical basis for only singing psalms? At every Reformed Baptist church Ive been to we've song psalms and hymns out of the Trinity Hymnal. Again is there a Biblical case for this, not inferences drawn from the Old Testament. Now I wholeheartedly agree that we should sing songs that are Word driven. But again I don't find any command for exclusive psalm singing in the NT(Nor the OT). Please keep in mind that I love singing psalms, but there are hundreds of theologically sound hymns that are good also. Please give me a scriptural basis for this as I am open to being wrong.
