Dumbing Down?

“Biblically, there are some good counter-arguments I could make to critics of worship songs, especially that they are repetitive and not cerebrally challenging. Take, for example, Psalm 136. It says “His love endures forever” 26 times. But also, I think, we need to be aware of the culture we operate in. Repetition, like it or not, is a big part of so many of the most relevant musical expressions of our times – especially among young people. So you can’t ignore it.”
