(A recent Newsweek article has the Christian world abuzz with doubt. A friend of mine sent me the article which can be seen here: http://www.newsweek.com/id/192583?GT1=43002 Afterwards, I was having a discussion with some woman in Australia who thought that the death of Christianity was undoubtedly a good thing. In fact, she considers me a moron, unworthy of intelligent discussion. She has refused to even civilly discuss our differences. Well, I thought of the wrath God must feel for those arrogant blasphemers who reject His law and I also thought about how righteous His judgement will be. I left the discussion and wrote this song. I haven’t decided on the exact chord progression yet, and so I’ll just post the words for now. When writing it, I was playing it in G, with the C,D, and F chords in different combinations. If you’re interested, just let me know and I’ll tell you the exact progression I used. Enjoy, and Soli Deo Gloria!!!)
The Day Christianity Died – By Shotgun
Sing the death of Christianity?
The words flow so perfect from you,
The things you’ve said; they cannot free!
So typical an imperfection (of you)
So hurtful and so mean to me!
So articulate your perilous phrases,
Such nonchalant simplicity.
Too bad I know how dumb your talk is, too bad I know hypocrasy!
I can see your buildings tumbling, I can see your world fall down. Where is it your god has brought you? Far away from solid ground!
Insensitive to all your crying, you’ve pushed away the perfect law! You made the magistrate your comfort and forgot that Christ is Lord of All!
So gnash your teeth in violent anger! My God will NOT be in the dock! Quickly to condemn His righteous, quickly will you flee the Rock!
(This last verse is meant to sort of be talked while the same chord progression as the first verse goes in the background.)
You’re 30 and you’re all alone, the kids you didn’t slaughter have grown and left home, your welfare check has been postponed, and you’re crying to your friends on the telephone;
wondering when the government is going to step in; take you by the hand, be your friend, and make everything nice again…
But when it doesn’t happen you’ll hang up quick. All your hope disappears, you’ll start feeling sick and then maybe you’ll remember that guy you despised, the one you terrorized, who tried telling you of the most excellent side of God’s glorious law if in it you would only abide.
But you didn’t abide, you had too much pride! So I hope you fondly remember your celebration: the day Christianity died.
