Puritan Board Freshman
I am reading Girardeau's "Instrumental Music in the Public Worship of the Church." He studiously avoids EP, although it would be a logical extension of his argument, based on the regulative principle, against musical instruments in worship. Without really knowing, I assume that G., like other old-school southern Presbyterians, had no problem with hymns. Does anyone know where I can find a discussion concerning how the southern Presbyterians were able to square the regulative principle of worship with the use of hymns? It seems to be very inconsistent.
