Songs that mean something different post-conversion
I was thinking of Eric Bogle and John Munro's "A Reason for all" today. My father played it often when I was a child. Back then of course "the reason for it all" seemed clear, and in my childish arrogance I thought of course that anyone asking the question just needed Jesus. The song itself contains several biblical references that only reinforced my sense that my unquestioned faith was correct. It didn't occur to me that this was the voice of someone who could have rationally rejected faith.




Skip to 1:44 for the song. Listen from the start for the commentary and backstory. I think the backstory is best heard after the song.

What songs do you hear differently now as compared to when you were a believer, or when you were a child?

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?
