Is this worship?

"Its so clear now that you are all that i have" - Snow Patrol

"Am i too lost to be saved? am i too lost? My God, My Tourniquet, Return to me salvation." - Evinesence

"So let mercy come, and wash away, What ive done" - Linkin Park

'Love for the fallen, truly amazing, heal broken hearted, truly amazing" - P.O.D

Is a song more "holy" when written by a christian?

Is a song more passionate when written about Gods love....or when written crying out for love?

Love is.........Excitment, joy, warm, hopefull, solid, great, passionate, "patient and kind"....we all know 1 corinthians 13:4....

but love is also......Jelious, Fearfull, cold, heartbreak, loss, damaged, lacking, lonely and desired!!!

Think about this......

Art is bron from emotion not mass production or targets....

Emotion is born from expierence!
Lonliness and dissapointment are born from desire!

Therefor songs, true songs are emotionally written because of a desire for love!

We all desire love, Christian, hundu, muslim, budist, athiest...whatever! we all desire love!
So to say that if a song is written by a non christian then it can not be a worship/praise/redemption song is ridiculous!!!

For those of you who say this is not worship......

Wherever you are in your walk of faith you never get past the need to cry out for help, forgivness,!

To cry out is trust,
To trust in God is love,
To lve God is worship!

"Because of love, i feel nothing,
Lack of love, i feel nothing" - Skunk Anansie

Not heavy metal but I like this wee lyric to get you thinking..... Maybe the reason why, all the doors are closed, so you can open one that leads you
To a different road.... Katie perry :-)
