People are going to be in hell and it’s going to be YOUR FAULT.
Over 50 Baptist “pastors” singing an ode to themselves…
This song comes from the same source as yesterday’s tweet.
I’m still trying to figure out exactly what the pastor is doing in the first part of the video. Is he leading the singing? Is he pantomiming preaching to illustrate what the kids are singing about? Is he just warming up for the sermon? I really can’t tell.
I have nothing against this song but it amuses me to think that this song of all songs used to represent the pinnacle of exciting and upbeat music in a worship service. When the song leader would announce it at my Fundy U a veritable wave of excitement would sweep through the auditorium.
Looking back after having experienced the emotion, pathos, and beauty that can be found in so many different types and styles of music, seeing people getting that excited over this song is actually a little sad.
Let’s mark Christmas Eve this year with a carol that I’ve never heard performed in a fundamentalist church. (or at least not one in this country).
I appreciate one thing about my West Indian upbringing and that is the simple lesson that if your song is about something joyful it should SOUND and LOOK joyful. It would seem obvious but it’s something so often missed in the music debate.
