||Churches Are Not Concert Halls.
||What! Are Churches supposed to be better than concert halls?
Thatís a joke, isnít it? No, this is not a joke. The world is at war with
the church and followers of Christ. Like the story of the Tower of Babel
in Genesis 11:1-9, where the people scattered when they were given different
languages, the same thing happens when attending a church where the acoustics
and sound get in the way of hearing clear and unaltered speech and music.
In studying an abundance of existing churches, it becomes clear that there
is a direct correlation between acoustics, sound quality, congregational
health, and attendance. It would be fair to say that this correlation is
throughout church history. New 2022
