From where does the church get the liturgy? Is it something the church just made up one day? Does it have any Scriptural or historical backing? (Is it alright for churches to tweak the liturgy, add or subtract parts, or write a new one altogether? That’s a different study as we say in these parts. . . but if someone wanted to ask it. . . )
