FOr two very contrasting take son the same issue (The PCUSA dropping a hymn from the hymnal based on issues surrounding penal substitution) consider this from First Things and this from Todd Rhoades.

There is about 10,000 ways one could discuss this issue - and Rhoades has a heck of a point - who cares about hymnals anymore? But when "worship music" contains lyrics like this:
Crucified, laid behind a stone
You lived to die, rejected and alone
Like a rose, trampled on the ground
You took the fall and thought of me
Above all
Christ thought of me above all? Yeah, uh-huh. Penal substitution is looking like a minor issue here.

I don;t agree with the PCUSA committee's decision, but I am most grateful there is someone charged with checking things out and making a decison.
