I'm starting this post because I'm the one who hijacked Chris' post. He wants us to wait for comments until he can move the unrelated comments on his posts to this one. This post will be two-fold: 1. How does the 2nd Commandment correlate with EP only? 2. Can you stay in a church that violates your conscience concerning the EP? I'm not convinced of the EP only stance for reasons I'll list. I'm not against being EP only but I believe that is only because of my own personal preferences. I, therefore, cannot demand this of others. My reasons for not being convinced on this subject are 1. that the psalms were not written during the time of Moses who wrote the commands for worship by God's authority. There are some people who believe that Moses wrote any where from 2 to 11 of the Psalms (ch. 90-100) but this cannot be proved. If God's people did not have the Psalms until much later to sing during worship, then I cannot say EP only is part of the RPW. 2. Because of #1 I don't see a correlation between EP only and the 2nd Commandment.
