Sunday, I was sitting through worship, as chipper as can be, when I looked at the worship bulletin, and then I started laughing and mumbling at the same time. You probably know that feeling , that one contemporary worship song, with the horrible theology and bad metaphors that just drive you bonkers. So, after a couple of days of struggling with a title for this meme, I went all politically correct again.
So, here is the meme,
Please try to name ONE (I know, there are so many to choose from) CCM praise song that you find unbearable and at least 2-3 reasons why, pointing to specific lyrics if you must.
My personal favorite is “Days of Elijah”:
My issues with the song:
1. “These are the days of Ezekiel”– Oh really? These are the days of Ezekiel? Have you ever even read the first 11 chapters of Ezekiel? Ezekiel was not a nice guy and let’s just say there are a lot of corpses in the temple by the end of chapter 11. I don’t see many Christians in the US sitting on the banks of Chebar in exile. So no, I don’t think we want the days of Ezekiel, not for anyone!
2. “The fields are as white in Your world”– Ah, isn’t that lovely? Jesus is just coming back to save Europe & America. Lovely.
3. “And these are the days of Your servant David, Rebuilding a temple of praise”– One word. Solomon.
