The Sounds of Fundamentalism: He’s a Personal Savior by Gaither Vocal Band

gaither vocal bandThis is the one hundred and forty-sixth installment in The Sounds of Fundamentalism series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section.  Let’s have some fun!

Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a video clip of the Gaither Vocal Band singing He’s a Personal Savior. This song is a perfect example of the narcissistic view many Evangelicals have of Jesus — a p-e-r-s-o-n-a-l, vending machine Savior.

Lyrics

You’ve heard about a place called Heaven up in the blue
I’m glad that all my sins forgiven I’m telling you
I’d like to see you get this feeling you can receive
God’s ready now to give you this feeling if you believe
He’s a personal Savior, He’s mine I know I love Him so.
He did my soul a personal favor
That’s why I tell it out wherever I may go.
When I am blue and feeling oh so low down.
He’ll take me through old Satan can’t get me down.
And from the path I’ll never more waver.
For He’s a friend, He’s a friend, He’s a personal friend.

Don’t ever try to quench the Spirit when God’s around.
Some people seem to get so near it then turn Him down.
Judgment you’re gonna see the Savior that you’ve passed by.
Think how you’re gonna feel that morning when others cry.

He’s a personal Savior, He’s mine I know I love Him so.
He did my soul a personal favor
That’s why I tell it out wherever I may go.
When I am blue and feeling oh so low down.
He’ll take me through old Satan can’t get me down.
And from the path I’ll never more waver.
For He’s a friend, He’s a friend, He’s a personal friend.
