Weeding Out Less Edifying “Christian” Songs

The key to maturity is time and community.  Discernment takes time and a lot of godly input spanning generations and ethnicities.  There’s a reason why the Psalms have been sung for thousands of years, and why many young people still know “Amazing Grace,” even if they barely know “Shine, Jesus, Shine” and have never (happily) ever heard of “In the Garden.”  A consensus of believers in churches over a few generations has a way of weeding out the less edifying songs.
