Update: Graeme Goldsworthy, in his Gospel-Centered Hermeneutics: Foundations and Principles of Evangelical Biblical Interpretation (Downers Grove: InterVarsity, 2006), appears to agree with Tony Payne (contra D. A. Carson) when he asserts, “In modern evangelicalism we could mention current usage of the words that are quite far removed from their main function in the New Testament. One classic example is the use of the word ‘worship’ to refer either to what we do in church, or to that part of the weekly congregational meeting given over to the singing, often repetitiously, of popular ‘spiritual’ choruses and songs. [fn. 20: “David Peterson, Engaging with God (Leicester: Apollos, 1992), shows how far the popular use of the term has strayed from its biblical sense.”] The problem is that lazy exegesis and unreflective usage end up by obscuring the gospel-based significance of worship. Other problems arise when a hermeneutical approach exalts doctrinal categories by muting the dynamics of biblical theology” (p. 180).
