A new song!


Oh those clever christians at Hillsong!  They’ve recorded a song for the victims of the Queensland floods.

It’s called “It Is Well With My Soul” penned in 1873 by a man after his children were drowned when a boat sank.  (Did you just cringe?)

The new updated and sparkly version includes these lyrics:

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

So, you’re raising funds for the victims of a flood caused by lots of rain and raging rivers that are just simply not running very peacefully and are certainly attending the way of death and destruction.  And this makes sense to you?

Then, whatever my lot?  So, god throws down gigalitres of water and you just shrug and say “Whatever my lot, It is well with my soul”?

Ultimately, worship is a response to God. This song is powerful because the confession is, that though everything around me may fail, our God never fails.

Let me get this right, all that water, all that loss of life and property and your god never fails?  Therefore your god is a bastard.  He could have easily let the rain fall in 10mm lots every day between 8 and 9 p.m over a month or so.

Massive Fail.
