If a bull gores a man or woman to death, the bull is to be stoned to death, and its meat must not be eaten. But the owner of the bull will not be held responsible… (Exodus 21:28)

This law contains two. On the one hand, it was necessary to get rid of the dangerous animals and all that was obviously harmful and having already caused damages. On the other hand, their consumption and use for other purposes was forbidden.

Nothing that is spiritually harmful and mortal is fit for the ministry of the Lord and cannot be brought to his altar.

We shouldn’t use old musical rhythms or adapt old popular tubes, most of them encourage debauchery and drunkenness. Adding biblical words to make them a tool of praise will not clear them but at the contrary it is the Word that will be soiled. It is unclear and unfit for spiritual use.
