As a former protestant I've run into issues with family and friends on the subject of modern worship. Specifically, why is liturgical worship, without instruments/dancing etc more proper than the common protestant forms that often include those things.? I've found some good arguments but one I've always had trouble convincingly rebuffing is the appeal to scripture, specifically to places in the Psalms where it is seemingly commanded to utilize various instruments/dancing in worship. Thoughts?
