A Teacher of the Bible & Music!

M Paulson

Church music today:

...causes people to stumble
...is not expedient
...does not edify
...is an occasion for the flesh
...has a power over the people
...is preparing 'modern christians' for the coming of the antichrist
...will be the music of the Tribulation Church - the Laodicean Church Age!

This website is not just about CCM, Hillbilly, Gospel, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc.
This website is not just about 'good' and 'bad' music!
This website is not just about whether or not your 'favorite' CD
is a "good one" or not - in anybody's opinion!

The "Details" - Pre-2012 Sermons and Studies
Why Music Is a Serious Issue?
For those of you who have little knowledge of the language of music or any understanding concerning any "music issues," I invite you to begin here.
Music Subjects and Specific Questions
Read a list of subjects and specific questions that I deal with in this website about music.
Former Studies / Sermon Texts
These are sermons / studies that I have presented in the past years.  Even though I consider them as my 'early' material, I still consider them to be a 'highly recommended read' if you have not read any other materials up to this point. 
Absolute Music
A series preached in August / November of 2005 about the rise and fall of the 'Classical European' music, a music that truly pleased God and could still today, if....   This is the music that 'came from' Japheth and rose to give God glory only to have man take it down to give man an opportunity to worship himself, the creation.
Biblical Perspective on Music
This online "book" format is for those folks with a serious interest in music so they can follow along with all of the material until it is gathered into one source.  The purpose of this 'book' is to simply show you what the Bible says about music! 
Power Point Presentations
A few of my music sermons are done with Powerpoint in order to show the charts of music history as well as other 'visual' needs in the preaching of music from the King James Bible.  You can view these presentations online, although total understanding requires you to hear the preaching.  These are being available mostly to make you thirsty for more detailed preaching on music and the Bible!

MP3 Audios of Hymns of the "Good ole Days!"

These are all available for you to download free!

Congregational Singing
This is a mix of congregational singing from a little church family in Touchet WA along with some old 'recordings' of my earlier day's involvement as a choir director, accompanist, song leader, orchestra music teacher days in a few other Bible Believing churches from my past.  Sad to say, but each and every one of those churches has succumbed to the 'new' music that truly quenches & grieves the Spirit.   If you are longing for the music of those earlier days, these old recordings will be a joy to you.  Nothing fancy, just simple hymns and spiritual songs simply played and sung!
