What's the Regulative Principle and Why Does It Matter?

June 13, 2019 Speaker: Matt Merker Series: 2018 D&T Conference Audio

Topic: Liturgy

Matt Merker offers a primer on what the regulative principle is and how it impacts our worship gatherings.


"When we have the debate about what should or shouldn’t be done in a service, we should all have it from the same posture. The regulative principle gives us that posture."

"How can we conform our worship to what Scripture commands?"

"What you do in a worship service isn’t neutral. The things we do on a Sunday morning are always teaching."

"The choices we make about what to include in a worship service are formative. They help to train people’s hearts in what to love and how to live. Planning a service is part of how we disciple people."
