"What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it." (Deuteronomy 12:32)
"But such is the corrupt nature of man, that there is scarce any thing whereabout men have been more apt to contend with God from the foundation of the world. That their will and wisdom may have a share (some at least) in the ordering of his worship, is that which of all things they seem to desire. Wherefore, to obviate their pride and folly, to his asserting of his own prerogative in this matter, he subjoins severe interdictions against all or any man's interposing therein, so as to take away any thing by him commanded, or to add any thing to what is by him appointed. This also the testimonies recited fully express. The prohibition is plain, "Thou shalt not add to what I have commanded.'"

Concerning Liturgies and Their Imposition (1 of 4) Puritan/Reformation Worship Vs. the Innovations of Antichrist/Rome and Her Harlot Daughters by John Owen (Free MP3)
First published anonymously in 1662, this edition is from the mid nineteenth-century printing. This discourse by John Owen contains the judgement of our author in regard to measures which gave rise to the most important events in the ecclesiastical history of England. Owen argues against the liturgy, the imposition of which caused (to the astonishment of the Prelatical hierarchy) nearly two thousand Puritan ministers of the Church of England to resign from their pulpits -- rather than sacrifice a clear conscience concerning the commanded worship of God. These men sacrificed their livelihood, families, and even their own lives rather than offend God by practising the false worship propagated by the idolatrous prelates of their day. In conjunction with this, Girardeau, in his Instrumental Music in the Public Worship of the Church (pp. 24-25) notes, "The words of the great theologian, John Owen 'and the British Isles have produced no greater' are solemn and deserve to be seriously pondered: 'The principle that the church hath power to institute any thing or ceremony belonging to the worship of God, either as to matter or manner, beyond the observance of such circumstances as necessarily attend such ordinances as Christ Himself hath instituted, lies at the bottom of all the horrible superstition and idolatry, of all the confusion, blood, persecution, and wars, that have for so long a season spread themselves over the face of the Christian world.'" Worship is a life and death matter -- eternal life and eternal death, and the regulative principle of worship (as it is based on the second commandment) is ultimately at the heart of any biblically faithful discussion of the questions Owen deals with here. Bannerman concurs (in his two volume set The Church of Christ), when he summarizes this book by Owen as "giving the Scriptural argument against the imposition of liturgies as well as of other humanely devised elements in Divine worship, with great clearness and force" (p. 435). Furthermore, the Westminster Theological Journal (55, 1993, p. 322, 3n) notes, "Owen discusses the true nature of NT worship, especially focusing on the challenge made to it by the Church of England. His discourse regarding the imposition of liturgies is one of the most thorough and forceful arguments for the regulative principle of worship as the only principle which safely guards the Christian conscience from the abuse of church power." All this shows that Owen clearly understood that the regulative principle of worship (sometimes called the Scriptural law of worship) was foundational to all true Reformation. Anyone who publicly opposes the regulative principle of worship is not only an idolater (who encourages others to violate the second commandment), but a deceiver also -- and in some cases, this may be evidence of an unregenerate heart. Moreover, Scripture and history clearly demonstrate that Satan always fights with all his might to overthrow this foundational biblical truth concerning worship.

Instrumental Music in the Public Worship of the Church (1/3) The Second Commandment In Covenanter, Puritan and Reformation Worship by John Owen, John Calvin, Jonathan Edwards, Samuel Rutherford, et al. (Free MP3)
Instrumental music in public worship was a regulated circumstance of Old Covenant worship and thus Calvin writes, "From this it appears that the Papists, as I shall have occasion to show elsewhere, in employing instrumental music cannot be said so much to imitate the practice of God's ancient people as to ape it in a senseless and absurd manner, exhibiting a silly delight in that worship of the Old Testament which was figurative and terminated with the gospel." Martin Luther also wrote, "The organ in the worship is the insignia of Baal! The Roman Catholics borrowed it from the Jews." You may be shocked to see the strong and unanimous testimony, given by many famous and much respected Protestant Reformers, against the use of musical instruments in the public worship of the one true and living God, found in these MP3s. Moreover, in these MP3s, you will see how clear it was that these Reformers knew that using musical instruments in public worship, after the first coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, was to deny (whether by teaching or practice) Christ's work. It has been said that we should no more use musical instruments in the public worship of God (after Christ's first coming), than we should take a lamb to the front of the church during public worship, to sacrifice it, as if the Lord's coming, and the greater gospel light He brought, had not done away with such shadows of the old administration of the one covenant of grace -- or, as John Calvin so aptly wrote about the Papist of his day, that in using musical instruments in the public worship of God they exhibit "a silly delight in that worship of the Old Testament which was figurative and terminated with the gospel." Has Rome's false worship entered your church is this area, contrary to the teaching of the Bible, the Apostles and the best Puritans and Reformers throughout history? If so, these three MP3s are "must listening" material!

The Regulative Principle of Worship in the New Testament (The Second Commandment In Covenanter, Puritan and Reformation Worship) by Greg Price (Free MP3)
This sermons defends the Biblical (Reformation, Puritan, Covenanter) regulative principle of worship from the New Testament. It also exposes Arminianism in worship (or will-worship). John Calvin wrote, "If it be asked, then, by what things chiefly the Christian religion has a standing amongst us, and maintains its truth, it will be found that the following two not only occupy the principal place, but comprehend under them all the other parts, and consequently the whole substance of Christianity, viz., a knowledge first, of the right way to worship God; and secondly of the source from which salvation is to be sought. When these are kept out of view, though we may glory in the name of Christians, our profession is empty and vain." (Cited in, Carlos, Eire, War against the Idols: The Reformation of Worship from Erasmus to Calvin, p. 198, citing from John Calvin's On the Necessity of Reforming the Church, which is free online at http://www.swrb.com/newslett/actualnls/NRC_ch00.htm.).

War Against The Idols: The Reformation of Worship From Erasmus to Calvin by Carlos Eire and John Calvin (Free MP3)
Regarding John Calvin's On the Necessity of Reforming the Church Carlos Eire, in War Against the Idols, notes, "Calvin speaks about the nature of worship and about the seriousness of the sin of idolatry in his 1543 treatise, On the Necessity of Reforming the Church, where he concentrates on the significance of worship for the Christian religion. Calvin's argument, as indicated by the title of the treatise, is that the Church had reached such a corrupt state that its reform could wait no longer. The most significant aspect of corruption singled out by Calvin is the perversion of worship, and it is in explaining this issue that he set forth the basis for his attack on idolatry. Calvin begins by studying the place that worship holds in the Christian faith, and he concludes that it is one of the two elements that define Christianity..."
"The Regulative Principle of Worship is God's ordained law for worship. "A law for worship?" someone might ask. "That sounds rather legalistic. I think we should be free in our worship of God -- we should be led by the Spirit." However, that person or that church that follows such "a rule of the Spirit" has in reality established his or their own law for worship just as much as the one who follows the Regulative Principle of Worship. You see there is no neutrality in the way in which we approach God in worship. Either we approach the living God according to His revealed Word (i.e. the Regulative Principle of Worship), or we approach Him according to our revealed word. Someone's word is going to expressly guide us in worship. The only question is, whose word will guide us? God's or man's?
Regardless of the reason given (whether to be free in worship, or whether to be led of the Spirit, or whether to attract more people, or whether to make people feel good, or whether to help people to know and feel the presence of God), and regardless of the motive in introducing the man-made tradition (whether sincerity, or whether joy, or whether supposed faith and love), any act of worship not instituted by God in His Word is instituted by man's authority and therefore usurps Christ's authority in His church.
So you see dear ones, it is not a question of whether there should be standards, or rules for worship. The question is simply, "whose standards or rules should always be followed in worship?" The Regulative Principle of Worship declares that only the Spirit of God speaking in His Holy Word can give us the acceptable way in which God is to be worshipped." - Greg Price, Foundation for Reformation: The Regulative Principle of Worship (emphases added)
"And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not. And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD. Then Moses said unto Aaron, This is it that the LORD spake, saying, I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me, and before all the people I will be glorified." (Leviticus 10:1-3, emphases added)

PAUL WASHER ON THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE
"In the history of extra-biblical study and research tools there has never before been a resource as useful as the Puritan Hard Drive. Having the Puritan Hard Drive is like owning the largest Puritan and Reformed Library in the world along with a full time research assistant with his PhD in Puritan Studies from Oxford or Cambridge.

Even though many Third World pastors read English, they have very few good books available to them.
