Feel free to mock, it's the same message, the same gift, the most powerful anti-wolf medicine ever prescribed.

Does anybody else think that Earth to Bella lyrics echo truth? (biblical truth) Can anybody else see it? -- i am in need of hearing that song now... Earth to Bella
Sin makes us glory thieves.
These aren't my words. I got it from a book called Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands. I just had to write them down because it reminded me of the song Thieves from incubus.
Greetings Paul! It's nice to hear a little about you, and your upbringing. But about what you said about the band, I think it's true, they might be just going along with the flow of ¨Generation Me¨. But then again, ¨generation me¨ is not a new thing, but unlike decades ago it is much more condoned nowadays if not already accepted as the norm. That is not to say that their efforts for donating to charity goes unnoticed. Yet sometimes I feel like they just really do it for their own selfish reasons, even if it is a good deed. The issue is not in doing good (in this case), the issue is the heart. And that's where God comes in the picture, He keeps our heart in check, whether we see it or not He sees us, all the way deep down to our core. Thinking ourselves as God is more damaging than anything, and this generation fails to see that.
Hey, everyone. First post (I actually signed up just so I could post in this group, I found it very intriguing).
I assume Brandon writes most of the lyrics, am I correct? Either way, I think the potentially anti-religious message comes from an inappropriate distinguishing between religion and religious extremism. My dad was a pastor in the United Church of Canada for 25 years until he converted to Catholicism for search of a deeper spiritual life. As such, I've been raised a Christian, and I have given my life to God, and I view Christ as God incarnate in human flesh, a tangible beacon of hope. But although I am religious, I'm not misogynistic or homophobic. I do not believe those who do not convert to Christianity are doomed to burn in Hell for eternity. And frankly, I'm not trying to convert anyone. If someone finds Christ, that's fantastic, but if they don't, oh well.I think (at least some of) the members of Incubus may be falling into this new fad of abandoning faith in something higher that oneself in order to live one's life purely for oneself. In this Generation Me that we are living in, the notion of God does not do us any IMMEDIATE good, and so most care little for it. And thus, they are skeptical about those who do genuinely believe.
I understand the impatience with religiously-driven bigotry, and the superiority complex that may befall those of religion. But to generalize that to all persons of Faith is far too wild an inference.
I'm not necessarily making an accusation, just hoping to bounce off some thoughts.
Greetings to Del and Mel K for joining!! Just thought I would say hello~ :-)
Thanks Joba, that's one of my favorite points. Being a Christian doesn't mean you'll never go through the rough stuff, just that you don't go alone.
I didn't take Thieves to be anti-Christian, but a slap at those who think they're better than everyone else. I thought the point was that the attainment of your dream/success shouldn't be limited to the stereo-typical American. As an American who lives in the UK, I guess I took that to be global as well as individual. And in these stretched economical times. the thieves could be those whose actions caused hardship for many, but who were relatively unscathed themselves.
Only Brandon can say for sure :-)
I didn't know where else to express myself...
I was thinking about the song Thieves while I was going through a Bible study. The central point of it was that the Christian life is not about finding shelter from the real world as much as it is about God meeting us in the midst of it. And the word ¨shelter¨ brought me to the following verse of the song: But shadows cling to us all even those convinced that they're sheltered and immune.
In a way, the lyrics are true. We as Christians are not really sheltered but have God in the midst of our shadows and valleys of death. Therefore, despite suffering we may have this joy and this hope that God is with us.
It's just something I wanted to say.
