feelings

I have only heard a few of Jason Gray’s songs on the radio, but the few I’ve heard have always been very vague and void of meaning that goes beyond the words.

Give me rules
I will break them
Give me lines
I will cross them
I need more than a truth to believe
I need a truth that lives, moves, and breathes
To sweep me off my feet
It ought to be

(CHORUS)
More like falling in love
Than something to believe in
More like losing my heart
Than giving my allegiance
Caught up, called out
Come take a look at me now
It’s like I’m falling, oh
It’s like I’m falling in love

Give me words
I’ll misuse them
Obligations
I’ll misplace them
‘Cause all religion ever made of me
Was just a sinner with a stone tied to my feet
It never set me free
It’s gotta be

More like falling in love
Than something to believe in
More like losing my heart
Than giving my allegiance
Caught up, called out
Come take a look at me now
It’s like I’m falling, oh
It’s like I’m falling in love

It’s like I’m falling in love, love, love
Deeper and deeper
It was love that made
Me a believer
In more than a name, a faith, a creed
Falling in love with Jesus brought the change in me
It’s gotta be

More like falling in love
Than something to believe in
More like losing my heart
Than giving my allegiance
Caught up, called out
Come take a look at me now
It’s like I’m falling, oh
It’s like I’m falling in love
It’s gotta be

More like falling in love
Than something to believe in
More like losing my heart
Than giving my allegiance
Caught up, called out
Come take a look at me now
It’s like I’m falling, oh
It’s like I’m falling in love
It’s like I’m falling, oh
I’m falling in falling
It’s like I’m falling

Well, it looks like Jamie Grace did better than Jason in terms of mentioning God. Jason doesn’t even mention God once in his song and mentions Jesus by name once. But, even if Jason talked of God every other word, his song still gives off the modern-day cultural Christianity message the world is begging for.

I once read a book written by Adrian Rogers. In this book he said something to the effect of, “emotions are the least reliable sense in your body. They are always changing.” Yet, in this entire song, Jason is saying that he won’t trust his other senses and he’ll go only for the feelings.

Don’t believe me? Look at the words. He suggests “falling in love” 19 times and rejects the other, more stable senses 14 times. His suggestions to all his listeners comes directly from the cultural Christianity idea that our feelings are very important for our spiritual life. They are the least reliable sense and yet everybody makes them out to be the heroes.

Also, his line, saying, “Falling in love with Jesus brought the change in me” is completely untrue and the opposite of what the Bible says. It is Jesus’ love that changes us, not the other way around. A serious wrong by Jason.
