Using mind over convention is a common phenomena. In Christianity, church attendance and interest in its belief gradually began to decline since last centuries with the rise of science, reasoning and logical ideas. In response Christianity tried to tell modern thinkers how the religion was still relevant and for all time to come. To attract interest, they made innovations to keep people’s attention in religion, such as music and singing in church was introduced since late centuries.
Many churches today use contemporary worship music which includes a range of styles often influenced by popular music. Singing hymns, and spiritual songs has been part of encouragement towards faith conviction.
