about

"Think this in yourselves, which was also in Christ Jesus,
Who, existing the form of God,
Did not consider being equal with God something to be grasped,
But emptied himself, taking the form of a slave,
Becoming in likeness of people, and being found in the appearance of a man,
He humbled himself, being obedient to the point of death -- death on a cross."

- Phillipians, 2:5-8

lyrics

I cannot speak for the stoney-featured pulpit-pounder,
Sunday-morning-frowning finger-pointing nose-look-downer.
I don't stand with the hate-filled sign-waver
Indignantly righteous soulless soul-saver.

They say their God and my God are the same,
But I find it a suspicious claim, for

My Almighty came to be a slave
Let His blood be spilled by those he came to save.
Touched untouchables, healed the sick,
Reserved His anger for the righteous hypocrite.
Taught his followers: love and bless and forgive.
That's who I worship, and it's how I want to live.

I cannot speak for the demagoguing politician
Who twists the Bible to condone hatred and division.
I don't believe in the teacher of "prosperity" who claims,
"God will bless you if you make an offering to me."

They say their God and my God are one and the same,
But I struggle to accept that claim.

My Almighty came to be a slave,
Let His blood be spilled by those he came to save.
Gave the hopeless hope, blessed the poor,
Condemned no sinner, but told him "Go and sin no more".
Taught his followers to Love and bless and to forgive,
That's who I worship, and it's how I want to live.

How shall men be reconciled?
By His blood or by your bile?
How shall men again be born?
Heaven's love or "Holy Scorn"?
Jonah! Beg the fire of Hell
To burn away the Infidel.
Look and look and never see
The power and the Majesty
Of what was done for us on Calvary, when

My Almighty came to be a slave
Did not shy away when Love led to the grave.
For a single lost sheep, he gladly roamed
Neither sought nor sat upon and Earthly throne.
Never struggled to receive, for it is far better to give.
That's who I worship, and it's how I want to live.

If that's who you worship, let it be how you live.
