    Mind blown.

  2. John Brian Igisaiar Says:

    I’m in awe at how true this is.

  3. Jeremiah Brand Says:

    It freaking sounds like a real worship song!!!! LOL

  4. Bob Jenkins Says:

    Worship music is DEFINITELY about the heart, but when a group makes
    millions of dollars for writing a generic worship song that sounds like ten
    thousand others, I get a little frustrated. There is a difference between
    selling an unoriginal song and worshiping God through music.

  5. Yana Nikolova Says:

    The condition of modern “worship” music is all the more tragic if you
    compare it with the complexity and profoundness of the Psalms. Now THAT was

    By the way, when you mentioned the fire, this verse came to mind:
    Heb 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
    So I guess that partially makes sense, but nontheless it does not justify
    the (mis)use of pretty much everything being on fire.

    Worship music is deeper than this, and btw those words mean alot to those
    who know they are true, even if you are mocking people, it doesnt matter,
    God bless you all.

    Ha ha! You should do a video mocking that one chick who poured out her
    heart in worship at Jesus’ feet. You know the one that cried and stuff. I
    know the pharisees mocked her but since Youtube wasn’t around back then we
    don’t have a funny video of it. Can you make one?

    them btw can anyone think of a cool christian band name i already have a
    few like Elevate, and long and narrow but all future band members and you

    Best video I’ve seen this week.

    In no way am I trying to bash worship music (it is my favorite), but it is
    funny how true this is. Most of the songs I have seen use the same pattern.

    This is one reason why I have never brought myself to write a “worship
    To quote Derek Webb: “this is as funny as it is true. which makes it not

  11. Joshua Hill Says:

    A diminutive fraction of worship leaders dedicate countless hours and
    prodigious effort into (what is for them) their craft; they may travel the
    world to expose themselves to new and innovative ideas, sounds and
    approaches to worship, collaborate with like-minded artists, invest their
    typically limited resources into producing quality (by that I mean an
    original, profound work of love that compelling while remaining reverent)
    music, and some even go to graduate school to perfect their art…
    everyone else just does this:
