During the Hebrew captivity, prophets like Jeremiah provided instruction of critical cultural discernment. God permitted his people to evaluate the culture of their captors and participate in some aspects of that culture as long as they did not contradict his law.
However, when it came to their worship, the Lord’s instructions were far more strict. The Hebrews were required to follow the clear directives given in the Law, and they were not allowed to add anything beyond what they were told. In other words, there was a distinction for Israel between how they interacted with culture on a daily basis and what they did in their formal worship.
If there is a particular way to behave in the household of God (1 Tim. 3:15), and if the aesthetic forms of Scripture itself should inform expressions used in worship today, it follows that Christian worship should be regulated by Scripture similarly to Israel rather than a simplistic motivation to “contextualize” to the surrounding culture.
