When a worship leader takes a secular song and changes the lyrics to make it a worship song, do you like it or do you feel it is sacrilegious?

That's a fun story. I guess it is all about the world we live in. But, I'm with you. When I was a worship leader I didn't think it was a problem, but I was asked politely not to do it.
You said it and I agree. The key is to note whether the song elevates our spirits and not our minds.
I like that! Yes. We need to remember to strive for a higher level. I think God loves it when we worship him no matter what the melody is.
AMEN! "Worship isn't about our feelings it's about honoring YHWH." (Translation for some readers, YHWH = God.)
No need for this, Rayne 123.. Without a leader or co-ordinator in your employment, the whole thing would fall to pieces. God appoint leaders, too.
OK, Rayne123 - I co-ordinated the music program for the church. I was the band leader and we sang songs in front of the congregation. That's what they call a worship leader - a person who leads in worship.
oh ok gotcha , then it brings my answer to a whole different stand point.
I do not find anything wrong with it as long as the change of lyrics symbolizes the whole meaning of the song.
Yes, Rayne123, and now that you understand more about the question, it makes your first answer kind of humorous. I hope you take my comment to mean, 'Thank you for coming back.' I agree with you on your second answer.
yes it does sound silly now that I have read it over again.
Sorry about that
Have a good one.
