My JESUS, My Savior

Do you watch the TV show, American Idol? I am a music lover, so I do watch the show on Tuesday nights because I love the singing. I did not watch it last night for their charity show called Idol Gives Back. But I found out that the contestants sang one of my favorite songs at the end, a Christian song! I couldn't believe it! So, I looked it up on You Tube and sure enough, they did. But, in the true Hollywood tradition, they left out one very important word, the second word of the song, and they replaced it with another word. They left out really the most important word of the whole song.........Jesus. The first line of the song should be, "My JESUS, my savior......" Anyway, here is the video of "Shout to the Lord" if you want to hear it.

Interesting! I'm not into the show really. I am rather surprised that they sang that song. I was wondering what word they replaced it with as I was waiting for it to play.

They miss the whole point-that Jesus is the one who is the source of all they are singing about!

I wonder why they chose that song if they were going to take Jesus out of it? Interesting what the world will do.

I had it on last night and they started singing that song again. I don't know what the deal was, but they sang Jesus one time and then another group sang it and said another word (Comforter I think). When I heard it I thought of this post. I don't watch it so I don't know what they were doing when they sang it!

BP, I didn't know they had sung it again on Thursday night. I know I watched some of the show to see who got eliminated but I missed them singing Shout to the Lord. I did however find a video on the internet where I heard them say My Jesus. I'm glad they sang the right words this time. They probably had many complaints from Christians. I also wondered if they had gotten permission to change the word the first time when they said "Shepherd".
