Christians get outraged over the wrong things…

Apparently, American Idol sang “Shout to the Lord” during their Idol Gives Back (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chXEraRnE4o) and the show the following night where they finally get rid of another bad singer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHuWxfcIqW4). The first night they censored/edit the first line to say “My Shepherd” instead of “My Jesus”, but sang the unedited edition on the following night.

There were many evangelicals that were outraged because “nonbelievers” sang a worship song, as if that’s never occured in life despite the fact it happens every Sunday accross America. If they weren’t outraged about that, then they were outraged about the lyrics being changed, which I can see would be shocking considering its a secular show…

The reality is people are being outraged by a television show on a primetime station. Are you kidding me? First off, the one song had more worship involved in it than most things that occur on TBN and second, if you want to get outraged about something, get outraged about this: http://thesoldproject.com/ or http://www.elpisproject.com/ElpisProject.com/home.html the SOLD project and the Elpis project which have now joined together to pursue the end of human trafficking and especially of sex slave trading of kids. That is something to be outraged about.

Songs of The Week April 8th Edition

For those of you who do not know or listen to Derek Webb, these are some of his songs from a few CDs back. His lyrics are typically deep and convicting.

I recommend at least downloading A New Law and Rich Young Ruler off of his Mockingbird CD. The whole CD is amazing, but those songs are really challenging.
