In addition, I was told, the first century Christians came out of an instrumental music in worship background, yet mechanical instruments were conspicuously absent from their worship.
I began to feel that instrumental music was a preference, that we should prefer a capella because that is what God commanded, but that it really didn't matter if a mechanical instrument was added.
My primary reason for believing instrumental music is wrong as worship is Jesus' statement about worship: "God is [a] spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth" (John 4:24), but I don't understand this verse the way most people explain it.

 CHANNELLING spiritual healing music
Like a 'psychic,' the medium is naturally sensitive to energies, many of which may go unheeded by the majority, but unlike with an ordinary psychic, a desire to transcend the mundane spurs the medium, who through much learning and meditation begins to identify emanations coming from discarnate dimensions.
Genuine spiritualism as an intense, invigorating science lets us know that there is life beyond this gross world and that our loved ones do continue to live on, though their physical body has been shed.

Still, we wouldn't be familiar with the older songs of the gospel and folk music traditions had they not been passed down from generation to generation.
Probably the most interesting aspect of such music is the extent to which it has changed in the hands of its interpreters.
Hymnody, as sacred musical ground, might still emerge in versions close to the original ones, but secular songs have often been reinvented so many times that the original tunes are barely recognizable to the casual observer.

 Spiritual Music As Expressed By Yes, A Secular Spirituality   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The title of this song, "We Have Heaven," immediately blends the Divine world with this earthly world, thereby bringing the spiritual down to earth, bringing a valuable future moment (Heaven) to this present moment, and forming a kind of secular spirituality that is warmly innate, very empowering, genuinely practical, and readily accessible to everyone.
Similar to this country’s Declaration of Independence in which our rights were seen as "self-evident," YES believe they have the right to feel that they are an integral part of the whole universe, because they see themselves as automatic members, or citizens, of the universe simply by fact of their very existence within it.
By representing a kind of universal democracy, their music exemplifies what I call secular spirituality - a spirituality that is at home in this world, and in the universe - a spirituality that is life itself - a spirituality that embraces a whole and healthy self.
