Contemporary Christian Music (Not Really)

A while ago, Clayboy tagged me with a meme with the following rules:

Please try to name ONE (I know, there are so many to choose from) CCM praise song that you find unbearable and at least 2-3 reasons why, pointing to specific lyrics if you must.

I’ve struggled a little with how to answer this one, because when I have strayed into this area in the past, I’ve picked up a lot of flack. So, by way of obscure response, I though I’d post a video by a singer who is not a Christian. Please watch this through and listen to the words – it should strike a chord with the Brits. I wish, I could find Christian music that engaged with issues with the same passion, drive and sheer artistry that Chris Wood brings to this track. It is simply breathtaking.

If you would like to be tagged by the meme, please consider yourself so.
