      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

Therefore, the answer "True" indicates that worship can be understood from a cognitive psychology perspective rather than being purely spiritual.

    Humans seems to be addicted to romantic songs, because with them feel-good hormones are released that mimic the effect of marijuana or cocaine.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Romantic songs have the ability to evoke strong emotions and create a sense of pleasure and happiness in humans.

This can lead to a feeling of addiction or a desire to seek out more of these songs. Therefore, the statement that humans seem to be addicted to romantic songs because they release feel-good hormones is true.

    Humans have three components to the musical brain that enable us to create and enjoy songs of adoration: self-awareness (we are able to think about our own thoughts), representation (we are able to think about things that aren't there now) and rearrangement (we are able to combine and recombine objects in different ways, including abstract concepts).

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement is true because it states that humans have three components in their brain that enable them to create and enjoy songs of adoration: self-awareness, representation, and rearrangement.

This suggests that these cognitive abilities play a crucial role in our musical abilities and our ability to appreciate and create songs of adoration.

    In the same way that a comedian or a storyteller must understand good timing, so as worship leaders we can do a good thing too soon and have it fail because of poor timing.

    • A.

      True

      False

    Correct Answer
