This was not one of those times.

You don't understand what parody is (hint: it deals with comedy or at least comic effect) but at least you understand how creativity-bankrupt Christian music is.

Whatever floats your boat, dude. But don't think blindly posting links to crappy music is a substitute for actual discourse.

I can assert random bull shit, too. Like how Luke 5:11 demonstrates that Christ was the captain of a mighty fleet of warships and did battle against the Atlanteans in a great 100 year war. It makes as much sense as what you're saying.

"In the United States, we exert ourselves to improve high-rise buildings and high-speed jet aircraft . . . and then pathetically refuse to give them floors, or row numbers, that carry the unimportant number thirteen. I know that Pythagoras refuted astrology by the simple means of pointing out that identical twins do not have the same future, I further know that the zodiac was drawn up long before several of the planets in our solar system had been detected, and of course I understand that I could not be "shown" my immediate or long-term future without this disclosure altering the outcome. Thousands of people consult their "stars" in the newspapers every day, and then have unpredicted heart attacks or traffic accidents. (An astrologer of a London tabloid was once fired by means of a letter from his editor which began, "As you will no doubt have foreseen.") In his Minima Moralia, Theodor Adorno identified the interest in stargazing as the consummation of feeble-mindedness."
"In the end theologians are jealous of science, for they are aware that it has greater authority than do their own ways of finding “truth”: dogma, authority, and revelation. Science does find truth, faith does not. " - Jerry Coyne
