“God is not a white man”

7 October 2010

By the Michael Gungor Band. I really love the music video to this, too.

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

Oh, la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
Yeah, I say God is love, God is love, and He loves everyone
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
Stop the hating, please, just stop the hating now, ’cause God is love
Oh, whoa, la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la

    So?…what then? is that all you can share about God?

      Of course not. But it’s supremely important to deconstruct some of the things God is not and reestablishing to root of what God is. If we don’t go back there and slough some of the vengeful trappings, God will continue to be just the old, white man and not the transformative Source of all being.
