Free Will Song
Just found this over at Samshua. Quite possible the most hilarious and distrbing song of all time.
As you listen to the song, you’ll see that saying God is sovoriegn yet gives us a free will is such an oxymoron. These people sing about God?s control and power and glory over everything and then say that God is ultimately powerless with us because He has given us free will. Some of the most disturbing lines…
“This next song gives us God’s perspective on the freedom that he gives us.”
“I could demand your love – I own you twice”

I Give You Freedom (The Whippoorwill Song)
I set the boundries of the ocean vast,
Carved out the mountains from the distant past,
Moulded a man from the miry clay,
Breathed in him life, but he went astray.
I own the cattle on a thousand hills,
I write the music for the whippoorwills,
Control the planets with their rocks and rills,
But give you freedom to use your own will.
And if you want Me to, I?ll make you whole,
I?ll only do it tho? if you say so.
I?ll never force you, for I love you so,
I give you freedom – Is it ?yes? or ?no??
I hold the waters in My mighty hand
Spread out the heavens with a single span,
Make all creation tremble at My voice,
But My own children come to Me by choice.
Even the oxen knows the master?s stall,
And sheep will recognize the shepherd?s call
I could demand your love – I own you twice,
But only willing love is worth the price!
My holy word now I give to you,
As a shining lamp to guide you through,
My yoke is easy and My burden is light,
Keep looking up, your Heavenly home?s in sight.
