I understand what you're saying -- but, for sake of argument, let's apply that logic to other aspects of our worship. Just as we would "pollute any song we tried to write," so we likewise pollute all our prayers and preaching. We ought not then even use uninspired prayers and uninspired preaching. But you see then, no one is willing to take it that far. So, why apply that logic to our singing?I meant that we are not "truthful" in fact we are liars. And to worship in "Spirit" we need Spirit inspired songs. We are supplied with both. We would pollute any song we tried to write.
I can't remember where exactly but in the OT someone was going to build an altar for God and God told him not to put any tool to any of the stones but to use them as they were, because he would have polluted the alter by his handiwork. God's work is of course perfect thus the rocks as they were, were fitting for an altar of worship to Him.
