God's Eternal Plan

Tags: 

Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

This one took me by surprise. Last-minute inspiration out of nowhere that quickly resolved itself into a full song. It's technically October 2nd for me already, but the site is still open for submissions for a couple more hours, so I'm going to consider it as within the official time frame.

Eternal serfdom to someone notorious for their wrath is not really appealing to me, for some reason.

Lyrics: 

It never bothered me
What Christians believe
Until I realized
They don't just believe in God
They serve and follow God
Who as a man would be despised

And they submit themselves
To God's eternal plan
To make all mortal man
His own
And they commit themselves
To follow all his rules
To make themselves his tools and not their own

They read about his wrath
And yet believe he's both
Loving and forgiving
Convince themselves it was good
Or that he's changed for good
No longer punishes the living

If they submit themselves
To God's eternal plan
To make all mortal man
His own
So they commit themselves
To follow all his rules
To make themselves his tools and not their own

And what is their reward?
God has given his word
The message of their book
He'll rule them forever
They'll serve him forever
Their so-called flaws he'll overlook

And they'll submit themselves
To God's eternal plan
To make all mortal man
His own
If they commit themselves
To follow all his rules
To make themselves his tools and not their own

The thing that bothers me
About Christianity
Is if you listen to this song
And you're a follower
A humbled follower
You won't think anything is wrong

If you submit yourself
To God's eternal plan
To make each mortal man
His own
You'll recommit yourself
To follow all his rules
You'll make yourself his tool and not your own



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I'm happy you got this in. Great commentary about a often perplexing subject. I have wondered so much about this. I really love your soft voice.

Lovely singing. Interesting contrast between the almost hymn-like, gentle vocals and the quite critical message.
