    In verses 16 through 18 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were not going to serve the king's God. They had strong faith and loyalty in their God and they were not going to compromise even when facing death.

    I think that daniel know his God and no one could see that and that he kept on worshiping his LORD GOD in faith that nothing will happen to him

    they walked up and down in the midst, supported and encouraged by the presence of the Son of God. How could Nebuchadnezzer identify the Son of God, when this was before Jesus's time?

    There are a lot of descriptive verses also describing people, all of them getting used to suddenly worshipping when music starts. Not from prayer, or the reading of Scripture. In this newer age type of worship, do you see any parallels? The ecumenical movement calls for all religions to come together any way they see fit, not through Jesus, like the Bible says, and all have music in common.
