Downhere- “Cathedral Made Of People”

This song is exactly what my last post was about. Many people do not understand the concept about the church being the people, and not the religion or organization. I love this band. They have gorgeous music with great messages, and their lead singer sounds like Freddy Mercury.

Here are the lyrics:

If they shut down the churches,
Where would you go?
If they melted all the stained-glass windows
Replaced every sanctuary with a condo
Where would you go?
Where would you go?

“I love Jesus, but not church”

We all know people who have said this. And you know what? I am so sick of hearing it.

That statement makes literally no sense. That is like saying “Oh I love baseball, but I don’t like playing it, and I don’t like going to games.” Or “There is this girl I like, but I don’t want to spend any time with her family or friends, or even her really.”

If someone said those statements, you would think they obviously don’t like baseball or the girl, since they don’t want to invest any time with others who are also interested in baseball or the girl.

So why is it okay to say you love Jesus and his teachings, but you won’t step foot in a church? “Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it” 1 Corinthians 12:27.

“Voice of Truth”- Casting Crowns

This song is about believing God’s voice, and not the worlds. It relates to my last post about persecution. It gives examples like walking on the water and facing Goliath, and how we don’t have to fear the world and what they say, because God will protect us and not allow us to be overcome by our enemies.

 

Here is a nice lyric slideshow a person made to go along with the song: 

 

Have a nice weekend everyone!

 

The World Hates Me, But So What?

Sometimes it can be discouraging to be Christian. There are always people wanting to break you down and make you question your faith.

As a Christian, you are going to face persecution. There is no way around it. “In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted” 2 Timothy 3:12.

That verse spells it out pretty clearly that we will have to face trials from non-believers. I thank God that we live in a country where we are able to practice our religion freely without government intervention, unlike so many countries around the world. The kind of persecution I face day to day is so insignifigant in comparison to what so many of my brothers and sisters in Christ have to face.
