Good Theology for Good Friday

wp_20170104_14_18_20_proHello Friends.

I’ve skipped a couple weeks of Bad Theology posts. Did you notice?

It wasn’t that I wasn’t finding plenty examples of Bad Theology, only I got involved in setting up a Facebook page for this blog. But now I’m back.

Though for today we’re gonna take a little detour toward Good Theology, with a little help from Jim Croce.

He’s one of my favorite singer/songwriters and I thought I knew all his music. But recently we found this one. It’s a perfect fit for Good Friday, as well as a perfect example of Good Theology.

See for yourself…

Which Way Are You Going

Which way are you going, which side will you be on
Will you stand and watch while, all the seeds of hate are sown
Will you stand with those who say, let his will be done
Jim CroceOne hand on the Bible
One hand on the gun
One hand on the Bible
One hand on the gun

Which way are you looking, is it hard to see
Do you say what’s wrong for him, is not wrong for me?
You walk the streets of righteousness, but you refuse to understand
You say you love the baby,
Then you crucify the man
You say you love the baby,
Then you crucify the man

Everyday, things are changing, words once honored turned to lies
People wondering, can you blame them
It’s too far to run, and too late to hide

So now you turn your back on all the things that you used to preach
Now it’s let him live in freedom, if he lives like me
Well your light has changed, confusion rains, what have you become?
All your olive branches turned to spears
When your flowers turned to guns
Your olive branches turned to spears
When your flowers turned to guns
