In building the temple of God, king Solomon employed a skillful craftsman from Tyre whose father was not an Israelite:
1 Kings 7:13 And king Solomon sent and fetched Hiram out of Tyre. 14 He was a widow’s son of the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man of Tyre, a worker in brass: and he was filled with wisdom, and understanding, and cunning to work all works in brass. And he came to king Solomon, and wrought all his work.
Because Solomon used such a man to build the very house of God, some might try to argue from that fact to say that we should also use all kinds of instrumental music of unbelievers to worship God in our churches.
Would you agree or disagree with using such reasoning from what Scripture reveals about what Solomon did in building the temple?
