When I first heard this song, I cringed. I squirmed. But then I started to listen to the words. Prophetic? Ben Folds? Yes, I think so. I try so hard to justify who I am, where I came from, what I do on a regular basis, but the more I read the Bible, the more I can’t deny we don’t always get it right here in America. And I’m doing what I can to make a change.

If I’m not mistaken, the very large brown house in the middle of the video is the one that sits on Franklin Road in Brentwood.

P.S. If this video makes you angry, then it garnered the proper reaction. What can you do about it? Change your ways.

    i don’t have access to the video, but i know (and love) jesusland.

    if you haven’t already, i’d recommend picking up a copy of God’s politics by jim wallis. it’s a very good read.

    I liked the song–and found the video to be truth–we all try so hard to be Christian-and lose track fo the Jesus part…

    Oh–and I agree about God’s politics-great book which helps on the journey in an Irresistible Revolution kind of way.
