Anybody?

There was a song sang recently. A popular song. A good song. Yet, when I heard it, when I read the lyrics, that analytical me, even critical me kicked in.

Lyrics:

Our Father everlasting
The all creating One
God Almighty

Through Your Holy Spirit
Conceiving Christ the Son
Jesus our Savior

I believe in God our Father
I believe in Christ the Son
I believe in the Holy Spirit
Our God is three in one
I believe in the resurrection
That we will rise again
For I believe in the name of Jesus

Our Judge and our Defender
Suffered and crucified
Forgiveness is in You

Descended into darkness
You rose in glorious life
Forever seated high

I believe in God our Father
I believe in Christ the Son
I believe in the Holy Spirit
Our God is three in one
I believe in the resurrection
That we will rise again
For I believe in the name of Jesus

I believe in You
I believe You rose again
I believe that Jesus Christ is Lord

I believe in God our Father
I believe in Christ the Son
I believe in the Holy Spirit
Our God is three in one
I believe in the resurrection
That we will rise again
For I believe in the name of Jesus

For I believe in the name of Jesus
For I believe in the name of Jesus

I believe in life eternal
I believe in the virgin birth
I believe in the saints’ communion
And in Your holy Church
I believe in the resurrection
When Jesus comes again
For I believe, in the name of Jesus

I believe in God our Father
I believe in Christ the Son
I believe in the Holy Spirit
Our God is three in one
I believe in the resurrection
That we will rise again
For I believe in the name of Jesus

For I believe in the name of Jesus
Lyrics taken from Here.

It’s a great song, isn’t it?  Here’s my critique. It takes more than believing all this for one to actually be assured of Eternal Life. Seriously.  It does. For you see Satan and all his demons believe all this.  They know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it is all true. They witnessed it and they are still bound for hell. See James 2, specifically 19 – 26.

It takes more than knowledge. It takes more than acquiesce.  If you have questions or would like more information, I invite you to write a comment or contact me via email.

We got to do better than the devil if we are going to get to Heaven.
