I love Derek Webb’s songs “The Church” and “Wedding Dress.” He does a great job of reminding me what is important in life.
When I am frustrated with the collection of sinful people that makes up the church, “The Church” reminds me that the Church is the bride of Christ:
And you cannot care for Me with no regard for her
If you love Me you will love the church
When I’m either self-righteous and need to be reminded that I’m a sinner or wallowing in my sinfulness and need to be reminded of Christ’s redemption, “Wedding Dress” helps out:
I am a whore I do confess
But I put you on just like a wedding dress
And I run down the aisle
I just heard “A Savior on Capitol Hill” which starts out with the good message that the government is not for our salvation, but I disagree with the lines:
and as long as the lobbyists are paying their bills
we’ll never have a savior on Capitol Hill
Lobbyists have nothing to do with weather or not we have a Savior on Capitol Hill. No amount of changes will transform the government into a savior. The rest of the song seems to stay with that message, but this if/then construction at least implies the opposite.
