Sing Me a Love Song

Consider for a moment the following song lyrics.

The more i seek you,
the more i find you
The more i find you, the more I love you

I wanna sit at your feet
drink from the cup in your hand.
Lay back against you and breath, here your heart beat
This love is so deep, it's more than I can stand.
I melt in your peace, it's overwhelming

They are pretty much your standard fare for a love song with someone being caught up in anticipation of intimacy with a lover.  Now have someone on stage sing this three times with the audience on its feet with raised hands, and we call it a worship song.  That's right.  This is "The More I Seek You" by Kari Jobe.

And then churches wonder why their members feel no need to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Some of the worst "worship" songs out there are these types of "boyfriend Jesus" things. ARGH!
