The closing song of the “Idol Gives Back” special was the epitome in song of the condition of Christianity in America today: works and entertainment but no substance.
In case you missed it, every word of the song Shout to the Lord was used except for one: Jesus. Unfortunately, this is an omission that is also increasingly common in many Churches today.
Just as without the name of Jesus that song has no meaning, without Jesus there is no Church. Without Him there is no hope, no joy, no peace, no life, no freedom, no sacrifice, and no salvation.
Apart from the name of Jesus there is only worship of an American Idol.
