Gary Lamb opened his service with a new song from Montgomery Gentry last weekend. Here are some of the lyrics:
There’s one in every crowd,
brings the party in us out,
good time Charley with a Harley, whiskey bent and hellbound,
he’s got the next round, but he always drinks for free,
there’s one in every crowd, and it’s usually me.
He’ll bum a light and steal your girl,
then laugh at you for gettin’ all upset.
He’s a hard drinkin man’s man,
and women love him when they can.
Lamb is using the song in a series called Party, which supposedly describes the reaction in Heaven when a sinner is saved.
Gary, this is not an appropriate song to use to describe that holy event. The character in this song is unconcerned about going to hell, steals women from other men and laughs at their misfortune, and an adulterous drunk.
How does this have any relationship to your worship of God?
Wait, never mind. I think I know.
