one reason i don't like church singing

Few things irk me more than the manipulative church music leader. If you try to guilt me into making me feel excited for sitting through your music, it ain't happening. If all you have are songs about how great I am, how devoted I am, now excited I am, you've lost me, because I know how great I'm not, how devoted I'm not, and on a Sunday morning (or any other morning) I don't do excited.

Stop trying to make me build up your ego by making me jump when you say jump. Your job isn't to create an emotional state in me. Your job is to use music to tell us about the God we're suppose to be singing about.
