There is this song "Famous One" by Chris Tomlin. And I admit I sing it, but I've always been troubled by it. (I spose I shouldn't sing it then, but I do.) So, why does this concept bother me? Because currently I see fame as shallow. Shallow and drawing attention to meaningless stuff. People that are famous might be talented or they might just look good. Or maybe neither...maybe their parents are just rich or talented. And when you are famous, people look for ways to make you look bad...which is really just normal a lot of the time...or else they try to make you look angelic...which is really just airbrushing.

And how does any of THAT apply to the God of the Universe?

People use Jesus name often...but they aren't really thinking of Him...they are swearing.

People try to make Jesus or his bride look bad....or angelic... Jesus is ultimate Good. We as his bride might look either on any given day.

God isn't shallow...He cares about the important things. He cares about who people really are.

God made meaningful stuff. Even the smallest thing he created has such amazing depth and beauty.

He is the definition* of famous: widely known; honored for achievement; excellent; first-rate

If only he were honored more!

Some people forget about Him a lot just because they don't think they "have enough time" to worship Him.

Still, some people's lives evolve around Him. Take Big Idea, for example. He's basically their job.

And how are you sure he exists? A Roman named Jesus came up with the Christian concept. What is our meaning? Look at the ground. It used to be a big field where cows grazed.

It's like they say: "Life is just another philosophy".


P.S. I still do believe in Christianity, by the way.
