attempting to argue for EP position by showing that it is commanded by
Scripture will always end in a failure. There's simply no such command
in Scripture. This, however, does not mean we are left in the dark as to
what do we sing in worship. For example, one can easily show that psalms
were used in worship and therefore we use them in worship too. The
burden is then entirely on those wishing to sing something else to show
on what basis, scripturally speaking, are we to accept their innovation.
If they wish to add un-inspired hymns to worship singing, let them
provide a scriptural warrant for it, else all such innovations are
nothing but will-worship, a worship driven by imaginations of men rather
than God's will.
