Are you lying when singing Psalms containing incense, or sacrifices? How about blood of goats and bulls?
So, here is a question regarding consistency...
Most of the people today who are opposed to instruments in worship are also advocates of EP. Now, understanding that the subtitles to the Psalms are not inspired, how can you advocate exclusive psalmnody when some of the Psalms were written specifically "to the chief Musician" who would have been an instrumentalist and some are written specifically for instrumentation like Psalm 84? And aren't you lying when you sing Psalms that talk about praising God with certain instruments when you have no intention of using instruments?
In a previous post, I brought up continuity in the covenants on purpose. We Baptists often get accused of having discontinuity in our views because we believe that since Baptism of infants isn't commanded in the NT and only Baptism of those who profess faith is obvious in the NT. But when you come along and believe that instruments in worship isn't commanded in the NT and only singing without instruments is obvious in the NT, you consider it continuity. I tend to think it seems a bit arbitrary.
