Just Plain Crazy

Why not go into the weekend speechles? This is for real. Read the description from the users channel:

"New Day Christian Church house band uses the song Crazy Train as a teaching element. The series is entitled Everything is Spiritual, and is about finding God in unexpected places like entertainment."

Ok! I'm speachless! What does that song have to do wih the gospel? Unbelieveable!!

I kept asking myself that when I posted it.

Crazy train wreck in church. How relevantly annoying. Spare me the Crazy Train sermon!

Well, a quick look at the lyrics to the song reveal it to be consistent with Christian morality:

Millions of people living as foes
Maybe it's not too late
To learn how to love
And forget how to hate

Taken from

I'm not trying to get anyone to agree with the use of the song in church. I simply feel that you were hasty in concluding that doing so contradicts scripture or the gospel.

The least they could have done is used the Christian parody band lyrics by ApologetiX:

Lazy Brain Parody of "Crazy Train" by Ozzy Osbourne (1 Tim 1:15, 1 Cor 5:9-13, 6:9-11, Rom2:1, John 17:15-19, Acts 19:19, 1 John 4:4)
Osbournes!!!! Ha ha ha ha! I-I-I-I!
Ozzy puts bats down his throat
Real different people live in his home
“Cosby, he’s not,” You complain
“He’s burned out from drugs and forgets his own name!”
Censors soon start bleeping, “What did he just say?”
I know enough to tell it’s not a statement of faith
I know enough to tell Ozzy may need saved
Let’s go!
I’ve listened to Priest and I’ve listened to Crue
I’ve watched Alice Cooper get saved out of booze
One person’s addictions can ruin his soul
But Jesus saved Alice so you never know
Metal groups still screaming – why are we so tame
They’re going off the trail but they ain’t insane
They’re going off the trail ‘cause we’re lazy brains
Why don’t we think ‘bout Romans 1 through 3?
You gotta listen to God’s Word
There was a cola war and Ozzy succumbed
He’ll sell Mr. Bubble when MTV’s done
Lately I just am not scared
The devilish Ozzy – he just isn’t there
Maybe he’s not really who and what you claimed
I know what Ozzy says but he may still change
So don’t underestimate God’s amazing grace
