Please carefully read the following before replying! This post is a branch from the following comment by Puritan Sailor made here: The part I am interested in the above quote is the very last sentence (I made the text bold for emphasis). For the EP'er, there is no choice to make - it is simple: sing the Psalms (Though I acknowledge some might include some or all of the other songs in Scripture). For the person not adhering to EP, but who will allow that Psalms may be sung in the worship of God, they must choose to sing a Psalm or to sing a hymn (or possibly both). Now for the question -- why do you choose an uninspired hymn over an inspired Psalm? Note: I would appreciate it if only non-EP'ers would reply, and that this not turn into a debate. There are other threads for that. If one of those threads does not suit you, please start your own. I am looking for brief statements from non-EP people as to their choice of uninspired hymns over inspired Psalms.
