Worship & Praise written by men & women who have fallen from grace

Praise & worship plays a huge role in a modern day christian's walk. But as we all know, not everyone is perfect, and indeed some people fall from grace. We hear of those who have written inspirational songs of hope that have touched millions, only to find that their own personal lives are clouded by sins such addiction, lust and lying. Are those songs that they wrote still valid? Can they still be sung or played in church?

Sure, no one is without sin. Even some of the psalms talked about being a sinner but still praising God

I've voted yes. For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God before or after the inspired song shouldn't really matter...HOWEVER I admit I am having a challenge with a book that I read by Bishop Weeks - Teach me how to Love you AWESOME book with great insight about women but after the fall ish ....

Question

If the song is meaningful to me, I'll listen to it regardless of the circumstances. However, if we're leading the congregation in worship we need to consider how each individual may respond. If just one person might find a song objectionable, why take that risk? I'm "I don't know" leaning toward "probably not."

Of course they are ok. The songs were inspired by God. By this, I do not mean that the songs had the same kind of inspiration as the Bible but that God inspired the person to create the songs in some way or another such as by having them look at nature and see God's wonders in nature.

I like this question a lot.

I remember back in the 90s when a couple Christian pop artists got divorced and the Christian radio stations refused to play their songs.

This kind of intolerance turned my stomach.

^What I was thinking. That entire thing was ludicrous. *shakes head* I can't believe people react to stuff sometimes.
Everybody's screwed up in different ways. If imperfect people weren't allowed to right songs, we wouldn't have any music.
