"A cappella" singing is gaining steam in pop culture, but what about in Christian worship? The expression is actually Italian for "in the manner of the church," which should already tell you something about the oldest practices of Christian singing. But if the practice of singing without instrumental aid in worship sounds strange or unorthodox to you, consider the history of musical instruments used in worship and you may be surprised. Some of the giants among believers of the past including Clement, Justin Martyr, Augustine, Eusebius, Chrysostom, Aquinas, Erasmus, Calvin, John Wesley, Adam Clarke, Charles Spurgeon...all took the position that "a cappella" was the most biblical and purest form of worship. But what does the Bible say? We examine some of the references to singing in the Scriptures and find that the Christian does use an instrument - the human heart.
