'L The problems surrounding When a performer climbs onto stage strumming a guitar a sings about love, trains, his kids or his car, most people at AC say, "That's entertainment." When a group of people raise their voices, without strumental accompaniment, singing hymns in four-part h mony, about the love of God and jesus or the Christian strt gle, most people at ACU say, "That's worship." But when a performer or group stands on stage and strum guitar or plays keyboards as accompaniment to songs about t love of God and jesus and the Christian struggle, people ACU do not agree on whether the performance is entertainme or worship. This difference of opinion has caused controversy in t Churches of Christ for the past several years and has been t deciding factor in the administration's request that no conte porary Christian performers be invited for a campus concert. More than 75 percent of ACU students believed performi who use instrumental accompaniment to Christian music wot be appropriate campus entertainment, according to a randc survey conducted by two news classes during the fall.

In fact, more students had contacted him about this su ject than any other, the president said.

Because of this division, the administration asked U Students' Association and other groups not to bring conte: porary Christian performers to campus for a concert. Rob Sellers, SA president, said the SA decided to honor tl request even though he personally was "all for" contemporz Christian concerts. "The administration believes the students 2 divided on the issue because of a few letters," Sellers said. don't think it's that divided an issue. I think most of the students would enjoy something along that line. I don't thi: there would be any problem if people would understand that is not a worship service." But he admitted, "That is where the subject is so controvi sial. Where do you draw the line between praise and worship Ji
