Steven Curtis Chapman – Blind Lead The Blind lyrics

There's a teacher in a school room
Somewhere on the edge of town
Telling innocent little children what we used to be
They look and listen without a question
They see the pictures passed around
Making facts out of a theory and they all believe
As the lost lead the way
Another heart is led astray

These are the days when the blind lead the blind
And there's one narrow way out of here
So pray that the light of the world will keep your eyes clear
'Cause it's a dangerous place here where the blind lead the blind

There's a preacher in a nice church
Anchored in the heart of town
People flock to hear his eloquent delivery
He talks of Jesus how he can please us
But the cross cannot be found
Makin' theory out of facts until they're all deceived
And the lost lead the way
And more hearts are led astray


This is a dangerous time
And the truth is hard to find
So let His word light your way
And guard every step you take

    Could it be that the people we follow, the people we trust to lead us in the right direction, could have little idea where they themselves are going? Perhaps they pursue a false conception of reality, thinking that they've really found meaning in something other than Christ. The theme of this entire album is one of following Jesus, and of course the exact opposite of that is following someone else. These counterfeit leaders may even claim to know God's will for your life, but by choosing to follow those who are truly blind, we blind ourselves and put ourselves in danger of stumbling off of the paths God intended for us to take. A true leader will not try to beguile you into following his representation of Christ, but will truly desire to help you hear God's call for yourself.
