Sometimes things like this make me wish I was an exclusive Psalm singer. Songs that can be sung to a girl or to any human cannot be sung to God!
O.k., so you're probably wondering what I'm talking about. Well, this past Lord's Day, Rick Warren of Saddleback Church held his Easter service at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, CA. At this Easter "worship" service, Warren had the Jonas Brothers do "a three-song session" (or performance) to close the nearly two hour service, worship service. A service reportedly devoted to worshiping God was closed with a performance by a popular boyband, singing Easter classics like "Hold On," A Little Bit Longer" and "Gotta Find You."
Now apparently the last song was written by a member of Saddleback Church, so certainly it should be about the resurrection, Jesus, or at least about God, right?! Unfortunately, no! Well, at least we're really not sure since the song had been originally sung to a teenage girl in the ABC Family television show Camp Rock. Now if you can sing a song to a girl, and then later sing that same song to God as worship, then either your view of that girl is way too high, or, the more likely scenario is that your view of God is much too low. In fact, it is what the Bible refers to as idolatry.
Below is a video clip that shows the song being sung at the Easter service compared to when it was sung to a girl. I do not endorse the man that introduces the clips nor his cynicism, although the idolatry it reveals is quite flagrant and shocking.
