A form of liturgy, doxology is a set of hymns that must be sung by the congregation as this is required by God. Liturgy comes from the Greek word ‘leitourgia‘ which means “the work of the people”. Doxology, on the other hand derives from old Jewish traditions. Hence that concludes that doxology is a works doctrine as opposed to grace. Liturgy came into the Church through John Calvin, one of the reformers who brought the Calvinism heresy.
