I have heard people say, "That is just emotionalism." Our soul is made up of our mind, will and emotions. Why wouldn't I want to experience and worship God with all my being! Spirit and body as well! It isn't wrong that we get emotional when worshipping Him with music. -- Nikki Mathis

There is so much wrong and misleading here. First of all, we are made up of spirit, soul, and body according to 1Thessalonians. It is the spirit that is connected to God. This is where He leads us into all truth. There is nothing wrong with getting emotional during worship if you mean being overwhelmed in your soul because of how good you realize God is in your spirit. The issue is not becoming emotional. The issue is in allowing your emotions to dictate your worship. To cast aside the truth only found in the spirit for what you feel. That is the definition of emotionalism. It is carnality disguised as a spiritual experience.

At the end of the day that is all prophetic worship is. It originates in the carnal heart and seeks to please the carnal soul. It starts innocently enough just asking what is wrong with a little emotion but it ends as we saw this past year with the most absurd and heretical moments in church worship. Songs like "I Like to Move It, Move It"; Highway to Hell, and Wrecking Ball were performed during church worship. We have seen the absurdity of the Holy Ghost Hokey Pokey and Kim Walker-Smith testifying to tens of thousands that she had a waking visitation from Jesus and met Father God face to face. Remember, what we believe forms our worship but what we say in worship can also form our doctrine. It is all part of the grand scheme the devil has laid out in these last days. To erode doctrine to the point where demanding it means you are branded as religious and trying to put God in a box. To convince millions of people they are saved because of an emotional reaction to an emotional call. To corrupt the true worship of the Lord through heresies such as "prophetic worship" and utter carnality. Beloved it is real simple. If your sermon is not scriptural then it is false by definition. If your worship is not scriptural then it too is false. The key verses today declare God is seeking worshippers! But they must worship Him in spirit and in truth. You cannot have one without the other.

Reverend Anthony Wade -- March 9, 2016
