It's the principle
It's the issue that your principal would dismiss you.
Because you don't fit into that all-American Box.
That coffin created for creative thought.
It's disgusting his priorities
And how we're entrusting him with authority.
His gavel's gone down before he looked in your
Heart. He finished this race(ism) before he reached the start.
Jesus loved the outcasts.
He loves the ones the world just loves to hate.
And as long as there's a heaven, there'll be a failure to excommunicate.
The world just keeps you at an arm's length.
Every week you work up the strength to fight the flames that are hurled.
Let your faith shine right through.
You know it's the world
Versus Jesus and you. It's disgusting, their priorities.
And how we're entrusting them with
Authority.
Their gavel's gone down before they looked in your heart.
They finished this race(ism).

    I agree with JesusFreak18. But they also talk about judging people by race and putting down new ideas because of your judgment. That's God's job not ours.

    People need to stop judging others unfairly by their past or present mistakes. Jesus loves everyone, and it's up to us, His people, to show that love to unbelievers. We need to stop judging people because that's God's job. We just need to show them that they need that judgment from Him, and ONLY Him. We need to be God's light of salvation for these people, and stop treating them like we are better than them.
