In response to myself

So, the Holy Spirit immediately started to correct me after I published the previous blog entry (which I have since deleted... if you really need to know the whole situation, ask me about it, but essentially I--having felt attacked--returned the favor in a blog entry). Immediately this song started to haunt me (I included the lyrics, accenting the ones that were especially haunting me).  Therefore, I want to let it be known that I am leaving this matter behind me.  I do not want to make anything more of it.  I do not want to contribute to a situation that is of no benefit to the body of Christ.  I am disgusted that I am capable of such pettiness.  I apologize, and ask forgiveness. 

 

I don't want to fight
(by Derek Webb)

I don't want to be right anymore
I don't want to be good
I don't want to change your mind
to feel it like I do

I don't wanna sell graves
peddle them door to door
a little something to ease your mind
and prepare you for what's in store

[Chorus]
I don't want to fight
brother I'm not joking about peace
we can have it here tonight
it all comes down to you and me

you never asked me to save anyone
not in whole or in part
like I was some kind of Holy Ghost
come to change their hearts

[Chorus]

you know the tree by the fruit
but just between me and you
I never do what I want
I do what I'm taught
and I've been learning a lot
about the violence I'm capable of

so I'm walking away from this
before I hurt someone
'cause I'm facing enemies
on both sides of the gun
