Day Three | Come Home Part I

Day Three | Come Home Part I
Matthew 23:27-28, II Corinthians 3:4-6

The perpetrators of division

Are the casualties in the name of religion

So you think that you’d be safer from a distance

And won’t say it’s not true

I remember turning in the demo of my song “Come Home" to my label and getting an unexpected question back: “Is this, like, a deconstructionist idea or what?” At the time, I had no idea what the term “deconstructionist” meant. Maybe you’ve heard that term thrown around lately and been confused, too. Deconstruction is a growing trend in Christianity, especially in America, in which people who grew up going to church and identifying as Christians are beginning to “deconstruct” their belief system. For many, this means separating their religious convictions from any political or cultural baggage that often gets lumped in with being “a Christian.” For others, it means reevaluating their relationship with the church and other religious institutions. For some, it means giving up their relationship with God altogether. So you can see why I was puzzled by my label’s question. After a short, awkward pause I answered, “I think it’s more just about getting hurt by the church and speaking to the wounds caused by religion.” I would venture to say that the vast majority of individuals that have become disenchanted with church, religion, or faith have become so because of painful religious experiences that either sparked or confirmed their skepticism or that marred their genuine belief.
