I hadn't the song "What this World Needs" before today, although it's 10 years old - guessing it didn't get much air play on the Christian Radios.
I'm wondering if it has something to do with this part where a bunch of children speak in montage/cut-up PSA format:
People aren't confused by the Gospel.
They're confused by us.
Jesus is the only way to God, but we are not the only way to Jesus.
This world doesn't need my tie, my hoodie, my denomination or my interpretation of the Bible.
They just need Jesus.
We can be passionate about what we believe, but we can't strap ourselves to the Gospel, because we are slowing it down.
Jesus is going to save the world, but maybe the best thing we can do is just get out of the way.
Casting Crowns - What this World Needs / Copied from Metro Lyrics
What part of Christianity believes this and why? As a Catholic, I find these statements to be the antithesis of my religion and almost fighting words. Don't most Christians want to "be Jesus for others" or at the very least "bring Jesus" to others? This sort of Christianity seems to me to be passive or even nihilistic and I'm wondering further if this is a real way of looking at Christianity and the Bible or if it's a fad.
