Thoughts on High Worship

High church worship (Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholicism) fail at the fundamental level of dualism. They pit the body against the soul; biblical, Reformed liturgical worship undoes the dualism in favor of a Psalmic-led life and liturgy where bodies are deeply involved. How is it possible to sing psalms and be dualistic? Sometimes those who come from places where liturgies and lives are abused tend to go to opposite extremes and not see the necessity of liturgical reformation in our churches. That worship is connected to dominion means precisely that a duality does not exist. Imprecation, calls for righteousness and justice in the midst of the sacred assembly are the very means by which Yahweh begins His work of renewal. All things flow from the assembly. Logically, following the pattern of Psalm 98: Worship (New Israel; garden); land, and world (ends of the earth).
