I agree.<quoted text>
It got me thinking in general to, not even just about the Bible. What might a man with a broken heart write? Would it give us a complete picture of all his thoughts? And different might his writings be if made 10 years prior or ten years later? Especially if personal circumstances changed?
And how much might he tailor a message to an audience?
Especially if he was known to do just that?
There are lots of things to consider. Although to me, the biggest one is simply we can't know the heart of another. Most certainly of someone whom we have never met. The best we can hope to do is make an educated guess. And even then, what purpose would it serve?
But back to the songs, yeah just a classic regardless of specific belief just because of the writing itself
It is why I read the entire Bible and all other early texts.
It is why I study them and listen to all the theories.
It is how I come to my own conclusions.
It is why I am not a "Christian".
It is why I believe in Jesus.
