Passion vs Knowledge in worship

Recently I watched a video and it made me mad.
It doesnt matter who the video was from.

In fact I drafted this post sometime ago and have left it sitting here so the video being shared has long gone.

The proposition made in the video was that when we worship, and the speaker was predominantly talking about worship in song during a church service, should be done without humour and emotion. His statement was that it should be all based on what our mind knows of God. Overt emotion and humour should be avoided.

Ironically of course he used humour, mostly sarcasm, to make his point. He also used emotion and body language as he was quite passionate about it.

Ironic really.

One would think a cursory read of the Psalms, using your mind, might push such maddening propositions to the back of the queue.
