This week, the Simulcasters discuss the hymn Amazing Grace. They follow Pastor Riley’s system of ranking hymns from bad to good to great. Amazing Grace is an excellent example of a poor hymn because it does not explicitly preach the Gospel of Christ crucified. Kate and Pastor Riley discuss why we want to sing good and great hymns and why we try to avoid singing bad hymns. It is important to discern between these categories because the hymns we sing reflect, strengthen, and proclaim our confession of faith.
