There is only one way to solve sound problems in a church, God’s way or the other guys’ way.

If you don’t want to see the video, you can read the story below.

God has a plan to manage and solve every sound problem apart from technical issues such as bad wiring, blown up speakers or damaged microphones. However, God’s plan for church sound does solve all of those performance issues most churches run into.

The other guys’ plan for church sound is to make church sound good enough for entertaining people and good enough to make people think that your sound problems cannot be fixed or you can’t afford to fix them.  The other guy wants churches to be great entertainment facilities to attract people who like the idea of being a Christian but never knowing what a real relationship with Christ is.

The other guy likes to make church sound good enough for people to hear a false message and yet be bad enough to confuse people if the full Gospel message of Jesus Christ is spoken.

The other guy wants you to hear a substituted sermon that includes an indirect feel-good message.  The other guy wants to make the pastor fearful about telling people that they were born sinners in need of repentance, and before becoming born again, you need to acknowledge that speaking such words will make people flee the church.  That is a lie.  The truth is, those who don’t come back are the people who will never let go of their sinful nature.  Those who stay understand their sinfulness and have come to love God more than sin – more than the other guy.

God’s way of managing sound begins with worship spaces that will give you a better building at no extra cost. There is no better way to manage church acoustics at any cost doing it God’s way, and the results are guarantee by Him. God’s way to manage sound works every time. You can trust God. The evidence speaks for itself. Do you really want to trust the other guy? God’s way of doing sound solves all of the problems any existing church may have apart from really bad building design. Yet even in a bad building, applying God’s method of managing sound will give the worship space 100% of the performance the room design can offer, which is better than putting up with such an inadequate space.

The other guy convinces churches to build expensive buildings that don’t support speech or congregational singing. The other guy doesn’t want you to fix the room because a room that doesn’t support real congregational singing discourages those who want to hear the truth from going to such places.  Instead, it makes the room appealing to those who are left behind who have itchy ears.  A room that makes you feel all alone during congregational singing is the ideal room for entertaining people as they do in rock concerts where people sway to the music, raise their hands, mouth the words and become caught up in the moment – that is what you do in a secular concert.

Real congregational singing is when you can hear yourself and your neighbours around you.  Real congregational singing is where you can sing and hear four-part harmonies in every seat in the worship space.  Real congregational singing is when the congregation can sing louder than the sound system or drown out the piano and organ, whenever the audience decides to do so.   Real congregational singing is when you don’t need a worship team and song leader to encourage the people to sing.  Real congregational singing is hearing every word and message clearly when sung.

Real congregational singing doesn’t need a song leader to whip up the audience into a trance-like state to subdue the audience to become receptive to any kind of message.  Real congregational singing doesn’t need repetitive words and phrases to get a subversive message across.  Real congregational singing does not make people feel alone, as if they are the only ones singing praises to the Lord.

God’s method of managing sound is a tool that helps in the preaching of the Gospel message.  The other guys’ method of managing sound causes sound system instability, hotspots and deadspots and subpar intelligibility where words are misunderstood.  The other guy wants words that are misunderstood to create chaos and confusion that can eventually cause division within the church.  The other guy works hard in making everyone from the pastor, the church leaders, the church board, and members feel insecure.  The other guy wants churches to have confidence in relying on programs to try to fill the pews.  The other guy wants the church to water down the gospel message to make the sermon confusing to the unbeliever. The other guy wants to fill the church with unbelievers who think they are Christians to displace the true believers. 

The other guy likes to divide the church by driving the believers into small groups, cell groups, and home bible study groups so that their words will fall onto deaf ears.  Smaller cells are dividing the true believers until they are no longer the influencers of the congregation and where their words are never heard by the others. 

The other guy likes his church pastors to be elevated above others, to be protected because of their imaginary supernatural gifts and the phony hyper connection to God and the Holy Spirit.  The other guy likes his pastors to proclaim the subtle messages of new age teachings of which the other guy, Satan, began in the Garden of Eden.  Genesis 3:4-5 “The serpent said to the woman, “You certainly will not die! For God knows that on the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will become like God, knowing good and evil.”” The other guy is a seller of the kind of fruit that promotes the message of elevating self.  Promoting self includes wealth and prosperity and a fake feel-good born-again experience. The other guy is the father of people being “holy” on Sundays and living like sinners Monday to Saturday. 

God’s way of managing sound in a church does a better job at separating His sheep from the G.O.A.T.s. God’s way of managing sound helps to build HIS church, not the other guys’ churches. God’s way of managing sound helps people to be confident in the Word and to let their light shine every day of the week. God’s way of managing church sound prevents bad sound from getting in the way of the message.

Church sound affects everyone, whether you realize it or not. You just read how God’s way of managing sound and the other guy’s way of managing sound works.  Do you know whose method you are following when it comes to church sound?  Did you get your information on church sound from the Bible?  If not, what are you going to do about it?

=================================================================

There is a saying that makes its rounds from time to time and it goes like this.

“Never be afraid to try something new. The “Ark” was built by Amateurs but the Titanic was built by professionals.”

Seriously? Who designed the Ark? God designed the “Ark”, not man. Who designed the Titanic? Man designed the Titanic. When it comes to church acoustics, shouldn’t we be using the acoustical system as shown in the Bible – a design guided by God over all other acoustical systems?
