    Another look at Undignified Worship

    Speak the truth in LOVE
  • Worship by the world, instead of the Word?
    Wisdom of man vs wisdom from God?
  • Examining the ‘Undignified Worship’ proposition
  • I will dance, I will sing, to be mad for my king,
    Nothing Lord is hindering the passion in my soul,
    Some would say it’s foolishness, but
    I’ll become even more undignified than this.

  • 2 Samuel 6:12-22
    13. And so it was, that when the bearers of the ark of the LORD had gone six paces, he sacrificed an ox and a fatling.
    14. And David was dancing before the LORD with all his might, and David was wearing a linen ephod.
    15. So David and all the house of Israel were bringing up the ark of the LORD with shouting and the sound of the trumpet.

  • 2 Samuel 6:12-22
    17. So they brought in the ark of the LORD and set it in its place inside the tent which David had pitched for it; and David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the LORD.
    18. And when David had finished offering the burnt offering and the peace offering, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD of hosts.
  • 2 Samuel 6:12-22

  • 2 Samuel 6:12-22
    20. But when David returned to bless his household, Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David and said, "How the king of Israel distinguished himself today! He uncovered himself today in the eyes of his servants' maids as one of the foolish ones shamelessly uncovers himself!"
  • 2 Samuel 6:12-22
    21. So David said to Michal, "[It was] before the LORD, who chose me above your father and above all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the LORD, over Israel; therefore I will celebrate before the LORD.
  • 2 Samuel 6:12-22
    22. And I will be more lightly esteemed (undignified – NIV) than this and will be humble (humiliated – NIV) in my own eyes, but with the maids of whom you have spoken, with them I will be distinguished."

  • Was Michal a ‘traditionalist’ about worship styles??Or was there something else going on here??
  • What were Michal’s real motives for criticizing David?
    You’re not acting like the king should act in front of his subjects – with pompand dignity.
    You’re behaving instead like one of the vulgar fellows would.
    And in front of the maidens!
    You’re an embarrassment to the royal family!!

    After considering the evidence,
    it is my firm belief that the story of
    David and Michal cannot be used
    to justify ‘undignified’ behavior
    in public worship today.
