    Great song. Great band. Great post.

    Merry Christmas, and a Christ blessed celebration of God’s incarnation, to you and your family!

    I had a post on this song a couple years ago:

    I have a question, Sincerely it is not to start debate, but a desire for truth. I heard this song a couple years ago, and fell in love with it. But my sister shared with me that the song was from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, a Unitarian, if I’m correct they are a false teaching. How do we or I reconcile this with the song. If he said in the song God is not dead nor is He sleep, but if his theology denies Christ, how do I sing along with him.

    Humbly asking

    You can enjoy it, and sing along surely , if you, for instance, think about a man, who took another man’s wife, and then had this man murdered, and the same man wrote songs that are in the Holy Bible.
    God’s grace is higher than heaven for us sinners down here. David was a despicable human being, and yet his songs are good. Granted, David was a believer, but he was a quite a sinner.

    Jesus looks at our heart. Have a Merry Christmas!

    I am crying as I watch this.
    I am crying because of the beauty of God.
    I am crying because of the beauty of Christ.
