Singer and songwriter Chris Tomlin discussed his latest album “Love Ran Red” with CP Voice last week, and explained why he incorporates the Scriptures in his lyrics.
“You don’t want to throw a heresy to the world,” he said, when asked if he feels pressured to write theologically sound music for congrergations to sing during worship services. “And that’s why I think, for me, a lot of the songs — especially the ones that have any kind of longgevity that have really gone further than me — have really come from the Scriptures. And I find that’s the best way. Why not just sing something about what God has already written about himself?”
Thus, by including the Scriptures in his music, those who sing along with their church band or choir during worship services will be reciting God’s Word.
Tomlin told CP Voice that he also strives to ensure that his songs not only include scriptures from the Bible, but that they’re comprised of other spiritual content that can enrich people’s lives.
