What You Won't Find In A Christian Bookstore

This is a question that, I am sure, we have heard many people ask, and even many of us have asked from time to time. I have come across various answers to this, many of which fail to deal with the issue effectively. So, then, what is the right answer? How can we ever know, and how can we help someone else who is looking for the answer?

LIKE-stampThere’s a song called “Likes Them” by the Swedish rock band Jerusalem (led by Ulf Christiansson) that talks about the youth of this generation who are searching for truth and meaning but have become distracted by sin. The song says that they have become suspicious of love… As a result they have been led to believe, by the world around them, that meaning in life is derived through everything and anything but Christ. The song remarks how these kids are “Sick and tired of pretending, Don’t even care if the world is ending…” It’s as though they are willing to abandon everything to find something to fill the hole in their heart (even if that leads them to destruction). The song continues, talking about this lonely and desperate generation who will only truly find what they are looking for in “the Man from Nazareth”… If they might only apply the same radical abandon to Christ, it would transform a generation! The singer shouts, “I like them! I like them!” and then, speaking of God’s view of them, he says, “He likes them! He likes them… He loves them!”

The song is simple, but what I love about it is this message that God LIKES people! He sees through all the crud, without distraction, and stands ready to answer the deepest cry of the heart… and the really cool thing is that HE WANTS TO. It’s not that He does it because of some kind of begrudging feeling of necessity to save His stumbling creation… It’s not because He’s a good guy, though He certainly is… It’s not even just because “He loves us”, because lots of people love people that they don’t necessarily like… right? God likes us! I love that!

JesusOnABrickWallMatthew 11:19 – “The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’ But wisdom is proved right by her deeds.”

Jesus was called a friend of sinners because; He was! It was not meant as a compliment but as a slur. Who would say such a thing? The religious folks of His day.
