    (conversation between father and son)
    (Son) Dad, has it always been this way?
    (Dad)Well, even from the beginning men hated Jesus
    Even though he did nothing but love all men
    And teach them and heal them.
    They nailed him to a cross.
    They thought they had killed Him, but they only set him free
    To live in the hearts of people like you and me who believe in Him.
    Then came the apostles and most of them were killed
    For telling other people about Jesus.
    But by that time it was too late
    There were hundreds of people who believed in Jesus
    So they tortured them and killed them
    And they even left their bodies to rot as an example to other people,
    But the church kept right on growing
    Watered by the blood of these precious Saints.
    (Son) But Dad, Did they want to die?
    (Dad)No. They didn't want to die. I mean, many of them had children
    Just like you they had to leave behind.
    But they were forced to make a choice.
    They could choose to live this one life here on earth and reject Jesus
    And be damned or they could to believe in the words of Jesus
    And live forever.
    (Son) I think I understand.
    (Dad)Here, maybe this will help you understand.


    I have heard how christians long ago
    Were brought before a tyrants throne
    And they were told that he would spare their lives
    If they would renounce the name of Christ.
    But one by one they chose to die
    The Son of God they would not deny
    Like a great angelic choir sings
    I can almost hear their voices ring.

    I pledge allegiance to the Lamb
    With all my strength
    With all I am
    I will seek to honor His commands
    I pledge allegiance to the Lamb.

    Now the years have come and the years have gone
    But the cause of Jesus still goes on
    And now our time has come to count the cost
    To reject this world, to embrace the cross
    And one by one let us live our lives
    For the One who died to give us life.
    Till the trumpet sounds on the final day
    Let us proudly stand and boldly say


    To the Lamb of God who bore my pain
    Who took my place, Who wore my shame.
    I will seek to honor His commands
    I pledge allegiance to the Lamb.

    (converstation between father and son continues)
    You've got to remember that it wasn't always this way.
    I mean, my dad could even pray in school.
    Of course, they took that away from him.
    Then it became incorrect for us to believe in the Bible
    And after that they just stripped our right to worship away from us
    And we quietly stood by.
    But son, I hope that you're never put in a position
    That you have to choose between your faith and your life.
    But if you are - I know which choice you're going to make
    Because I know that Jesus lives inside of you.
    In the meantime, just pray like I taught you how to
    Take care of your mom
    And remember that God is the Father of the fatherless.

      I like this song alot! I think makes me think about whether I would do the same thing as the people in the song. If I were told I would be killed if I didn't renounce my faith, would I pass Gods test, or would I be a coward and choose life. It really encourages me to live a life that is completely sold out to my loving Lord.
