The Presbyterian Committee on Congregational Songs for the Presbyterian Church (USA) has decided to not include the hymn "In Christ Alone" because one phrase speaks about God's wrath.
Mary Louise Bringle, who chairs the Presbyterian Committee on Congregational Songs, recently wrote about the decision in her blog for the Christian Century. Bringle shared that after they initially voted for the inclusion of the hymn by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend, they discovered that although they had found materials that changed the words, "as Jesus died / the wrath of God was satisfied," to "Till on that cross as Jesus died / the love of God was magnified," if they wanted to include it in their updated hymnal, the wording would have to be printed as the authors originally intended, and not revised.
...we discovered that this version of the text would not be approved by the authors, as it was considered too great a departure from their original words [good for Getty and Townend, JK]Also of note in the article is this grammatically awkward phrase, a reflection of the liberal attitude of anathema towards any hint of uninclusivity:
"...the cross is primarily about God's need to assuage God's anger,"One can only shake one's head in wonder at those in the liberal church who sit and shake their own heads in wonder at why people are abandoning their numbers.
