God is not… God is… | “White Man” by Gungor


Yesterday I mentioned that I think I am guilty of putting Jesus and The Church into boxes they don’t fit in. Last night, I was introduced (thanks Anissa) to Gungor. I’m pretty sure I’m about to be obsessed with them. They have this song that starts off…

God is not a man
God is not a white man
God is not a man sitting on a cloud
God cannot be bought
God will not be boxed in
God will not be owned by religion

I love it. And the video is – awesome! You’re gonna want to watch it. (There’s a flying HAMSTER! … Not only do they have great songs but they’re SUPER RANDOM. Love it!!!)

Here are the words.

God is not a man
God is not a white man
God is not a man sitting on a cloud

God cannot be bought
God will not be boxed in
God will not be owned by religion

But God is love, God is love, and He loves everyone
God is love, God is love, and He loves everyone

God is not a man
God is not an old man
God does not belong to Republicans
God is not a flag
Not even American
And God does not depend on a government

But God is good, God is good, and He loves everyone
God is good, God is good, and He loves everyone

Atheists and Charlatans and Communists and Lesbians
And even old Pat Robertson, oh God He loves us all
Catholic or Protestant, Terrorist or President
Everybody, everybody, love, love, love, love, love

Hi Gungor. Nice to meet you. Let’s be freinds. Love, Shanda
