As I Lay Dying – Within Destruction lyrics

If music is a mirror revealing the depths of my heart
Then I will write the darkest song
For without forgiveness my soul is lost
All that is hope within destruction comes from You
For I have fallen, and there is nothing good within me
Yet I've been given life I will never deserve
For without forgiveness my soul is lost

    No! Do you people honestly think that you have to let god save you? We have to let god do something? When god becomes subject to a man, he is no longer god, he is a slave! God is the most powerful being in the universe, us being the weaker being, do not have to let the higher do something. It is not by our own effort that we are saved it is by god's and god's alone! This ignorant form of christianity (a christless one in fact) has infiltrated our churches! It is so wrong! I am absolutely heart-broken by these lies. Now some of you might say. "but now your saying that god chooses people, thats not right because that means he doesn't choose others" I am saying that, and nothing else. The verses sayahonami shared make it clear that god has the right to do what he wants with his salvation, and we don't have the right to oppose him. If anyone has anymore questions regarding my theology.

    Romans 9:
    21Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one object for special use and another for ordinary use?
    22What if God, desiring to show his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience the objects of wrath that are made for destruction;.
    Sayahonami- I claim no original thought of my own. This world is not my home. You can't take away my love for his sacrifice.
    Even if I die tonight
    If I die tonight.

    Nice song meaning there dixonline. But what possible reason would cause a god to create the earth and leave it forever? And if there are more earths then who says god can't love the people on any but ours? You can only attempt to judge christianity if you have experienced it, and to experience god will make anyone drop any indictments of the faith. Maybe you will hate me for saying this and think me arrogant, but jesus loves you and will save you if you let him.

    It talks about the fact that we are sinners and don't deserve all the great things that God has given us. However, He loves us so much that through his mercy we still have a chance at salvation which is why He sent His only Son to die for our own fault. He did that so that we may repent and He will forgive us to enter Heaven. "My soul is lost," basically means just that. If we don't repent and ask for forgiveness then our "soul is lost." Jesus is our only hope anywhere that we may be and in this case, "within destruction." This says that even in the worst times He is our hope.
