In Christ Alone

Great song. We played this at church today and I really got caught up in the music and pondered the lyrics. I challenge everyone to at least ponder the lyrics.

I like the more upbeat version of this tune, though Natalie Grant did an excellent take on this track with her amazing voice.

  1. The lyrics well express the core sickliness of the Christian beliefs.

    Craven submission to a ruler; wishing to be a helpless slave.

    Insistence that one’s belief cannot be changed by anything, not even reasoned argument and evidence.

    Denial of death; magical thinking to avoid acceptance of the fact that someone is gone and that the same fate awaits us all.

    A wrathful creator god who demands human blood sacrifice, for deeds committed by creatures the same god created flawed and prone to such deeds.

    Vicarious redemption; abdicating responsibility for one’s putative sins, accepting the sacrifice of someone else for one’s own wrongdoing.

    Thanks for the invitation to consider the lyrics.
