it seems all the rage
to bash on the church
and her religious ways
give me jesus not religion
the trendy they clamor
but jesus said the church was his bride
so put your hand over your mouth
and pull that log out of your eye
if the church is Jesus' bride
don't you think you should try to
instead of betraying it?
sure she's got her issues
I don't deny that
it's a true fact
that her pews and aisles are jam-packed
impure hearts and
But isn't that exactly where they (we) need to be?
so maybe mother church,
"religion" if you will
seems washed up and over the hill
to young people, like you and me
we don't want to deal with that kind of hypocrisy
when really all we want is community
and freedom to help others in tune with our beliefs.
So you say mother church isn't meeting your needs
well change it.
I dare you.
Make it real.
we are the church.
