Tuesday, April 25, 2006Lately I've found a couple of articles online that debunk the notion that Martin Luther and the Wesleys used tavern songs as a basis for their hymns. Apparently it's all a myth.
What a relief. I'm tired of hearing trite "worship" songs justified on the basis that heroes of the faith used similar formulas. I should memorize these arguments as a rebuttable the next time I hear a U2 ripoff presented as a worship song.
