Believing in clapping in church? I have no problem with clapping in church, but if a church doesn’t clap on one occasion, I wouldn’t say it was wrong either to go a meeting without clapping.

Here in Indonesia, clapping is a controversial issue among some of the ‘Protestan’ groups. I have heard some Batak Lutherans describe Pentecostals as ‘yang tupuk tangan’ — the ones who clap their hands.
