Singing in the Assembly as a “Governed Practice”

This is Part 2 of a series on the goings on in the public assembly of the Church. In Part 1 a threefold distinction of pious practices was discussed. The first was "Free Practices" or true adiaphora, the second was "Commanded Practices" , and the third category is "governed practices" which are those things that God, in His Word, commands but does not prescribe the manner in which it is to be done. In part 2 of the series, the argument will be made and defended that corporate singing, when it is used in the assembly, falls into this third category.
