Scare Away the Dark

 

1 John 4:18

The Message (MSG)

To Love, to Be Loved

17-18 God is love. When we take up permanent residence in a life of love, we live in God and God lives in us. This way, love has the run of the house, becomes at home and mature in us, so that we’re free of worry on Judgment Day—our standing in the world is identical with Christ’s. There is no room in love for fear. Well-formed love banishes fear. Since fear is crippling, a fearful life—fear of death, fear of judgment—is one not yet fully formed in love.

Jesus Christ is LOVE

God IS love

Meet Him on His terms and find out for yourself

 

JJesus Christ, my sweet Lord - savior, christ, god, love, jesus

Scare Away the Dark

By Passenger

Well sing, sing at the top of your voice
And love without fear in your heart
Feel, feel like you still have a choice
If we all light up we can scare away the dark

We wish our weekdays away
Spend our weekends in bed
We drink ourselves stupid and work ourselves dead
And all because that’s what mum and dad said we should do
We should run through the forests
We should swim in the streams
We should laugh we should cry we should love we should dream
We should stare at the stars and not just at screens
You should hear what I’m saying and know what it means to

Sing at the top of your voice
And love without fear in your heart
Feel, feel like you still have a choice
If we all light up we can scare away the dark.

Yeah we wish we were happier, thinner and fitter
We wish we weren’t losers and liars and quitters
We want something more not just nasty and bitter
We want something real not just Facebook and twitter
It’s the meaning of life and it’s streamed live on YouTube
But I bet Gangnam Style would still get more views
We’re scared of drowning, of flying and shooters
But we’re all slowly dying in front of f-ing computers.

Sing at the top of your voice
And love without fear in your heart
Feel, feel like you still have a choice
If we all light up we can scare away the dark.

And oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh ahh

And oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Sing it out now

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Sing it out now

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

  1. I just stopped by for a peek. Then I see this post with a big blue-eyed Anglo Jesus. Jesus didn’t look anything like that, of course. It just goes to further show that the “relationship” that Evangelicals claim to have with Jesus, is to an imaginary Jesus.
    http://triangulations.wordpress.com/2009/05/09/jesus-is-an-imaginary-friend/

    But if your imagination is comforting, keep going.

  2. Hey Sabio, does that really matter? I mean, in the overall scheme of things, how does the ethnicity of Jesus play into the topic of love?

  3. Furthermore, that Christ is imaginary is merely your opinion. You are atheist. Of course, God is imaginary to the atheist mind that has completely rejected God, and the Holy Spirit; still I’m not sure of your point. Your comment just seems kind of rude and argumentative.

  4. @TW,
    Indeed, does it matter?? So draw him as a little, gruffy bearded, dark skin fellow and see how many Americans love that image. The point is people have a relationship with an imaginary Jesus and they make that image to fit their needs. Republicans make him loving guns and hating homosexuals and white as can be. It is the same game — I am pointing you to a deep principle.

    I love that you said, “You are atheist.”
    Remember, I use to be Christian. I imagined Jesus as strongly and as wonderfully as you. Hindus imagine Krishna too. We imagine what we want to see.

    I don’t “reject God” — I just realized that I made up the stuff in my head. No rejection — no god to reject.

    If you find these comment rude and argumentative, then you should ban me.

    This is normal conversation — you just don’t want to hear that voice. You want a lily-white lamb-hugging Jesus voice instead. I get that, it can be comforting indeed — as long as it works. You gave up a Jesus who hugs automatic weapons and lights fires under homosexuals, you almost gave up a Jesus who lights fires under heretics (but you aren’t there yet), how about imagining a little, dirty, palestinian with bad teeth and dark skin (remember, he was a laborer) — instead of the Jesus in your head now.

    I figured you’d be aware of this issue. Here is an article that explores the looks of Jesus:

    Interestingly, NakedPastor did a post on that issue today:
    http://nakedpastor.com/2014/03/jesus-can-be-white-but-noah-cant-be-vegetarian/
    Remember, he still claims to be a Christian an is a former Pastor.
    Maybe it will be harder for you reject him rather than this dirty atheist.
