"The song "The One" by the Backstreet Boys presents a bizarre and eerie twist to this teen "worship" of these artists: Check out some of these "spiritual" lyrics:
The One” — the Backstreet Boys
I’ll be the one… I guess you were LOST when I met you… I can show you what TRUE LOVE means Just take my hand, baby please
CHORUS I’ll be the one Who will make all your sorrows undone I’ll be the LIGHT When you feel like there’s nowhere to run I’ll be the one…To hold you and make sure that you’ll be alright 'Cause my FAITH is gone And I want to take you from DARKNESS to LIGHT … I’ll be the one I’ll be the light
Notice the uncanny likeness to the Lord Jesus Christ!
1. You were LOST – Same as the Lord Jesus Christ! For the Son of man is come to save that which was LOST. Matthew 18:11 2. I can show you what TRUE LOVE means – Same as the Lord Jesus Christ! Greater LOVE hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is LOVE. 1 John 4:8 3… . .take you from DARKNESS to LIGHT … – Same as the Lord Jesus Christ! To open their eyes, and to turn them from DARKNESS to LIGHT, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. Acts 26:18 4. I’ll be the ONE – Same as the Lord Jesus Christ! Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the HOLY ONE OF GOD. Mark 1:24 And he said, The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just ONE, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth. Acst 22:14 5. I’ll be the LIGHT – Same as the Lord Jesus Christ! Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I AM THE LIGHT of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:12
Do you think these lyrics are a coincident?”
Favorite quote: “Oh, if you think the BackStreet Boys are young, naïve, innocent teenagers – think again – their ages are 19, 21, 24, 25 and 27 years of age! (as of July 1999)”
Today, I tried #309 on the list of 333 things to do to get kicked out of wal mart: “If you see a couple holding hands, run through their hands and scream, “RED ROVER!” Not only did they go along with it, but I then joined hands with them and we walked around saying “Red Rover, red rover send you right over!” and pointing to random people. We got a chain 32 people long, with the store manager being one of them. MLIA.
