Ep. 13: Manipulative Worship

Updated a long time ago.

Has worship music changed from genuine songs of praise to emotionally manipulative melodies that force people to feel things? If worship music makes people emotional, is that a bad thing? We discuss this growing concern in the church.


Special Guests: John Birkey & Joseph Brazil

Featured Music: "Friend of the Sinner" by Brad+Rebekah

Segment 1 - Game Time: We play "Before & After Worship Song Titles", where we mash the title of two songs together and the players have to guess the missing word that both songs share. (The trophy is not on the line.)

Segment 2 - Back Talk: We take a look at the concern some people have over worship music and how it's used in churches to elicit emotion.

Our theme music was created and gifted to us by Kevin Reddoch - a musical genius! He does mixing and mastering, and will even create music for you if you need it. You can contact him for details and pricing by e-mailing
