  • The Importance Of Dancing

    overlooked, there is a pattern to be followed for New Testament worship, organization, and salvation (Rm. 6:16-17; 2 Tim. 1:13). The New Testament provides no information of dancing being a part of worship in the early church. With the New Testament we have everything that we need for life and godliness and what it takes to please God (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:3). Dancing is found in the New Testament though it has nothing to do with worship to God in the church. Jesus used dancing in a discussion about the hard hearted nature of those John the immerser taught and the fact that it is impossible to please some listeners (Mt. 11:17; Lk. 7:32). There is also the account in the New Testament about Herodias’ daughter dancing for Herod and having John’s head being given to her at the request of her mother (Mt. 14:6; Mk. 6:22). The word translated in these verses for dance is orcheomai and it means to merely dance, but nothing in the context deals with doing this for God (Strong’s 1990). In fact the occasion with Herodias’ daughter deals more with dancing for lustful enticement. The last occasion of dancing in the New Testament is found when Jesus’ tells the parable of the prodigal son (Lk. 15:25). The word for dancing here is a band dancing or a circular dance (Strong’s 1990). Again nothing in these verses deal with dancing for God. The New Testament church as found in the Bible engages in: singing, praying, preaching, communion, and giving (Acts 2:42; 1 Cor. 11:23-30, 14:15; Eph.…

  • Analysis Of Dancing With God
