01. These Pages

Well Meaning Fiction
by Mainstay



 

Go tell the world that there is nothing here to hide
It seems like everyone's been covering their eyes

Words that You didn't say were haunting these pages
Faces You didn't make were all I was seeing
The way that they painted You wasn't a picture
of one in control - and I don't think they know who you are

Build brackets around You so You can come out clean
We tried to give You limits that You didn't need

You can order all this heartbreak
You don't need my permission to move
I wish they would just stop trying to filter You out
We've got nothing to prove



Behind the Song:
"These Pages is a song about the word of God. Growing up, I read many assumptions into the bible, and the overall tone of my bible study was, "what can I get from this?" Sadly, that is not the right way to read the bible, and my walk with God was hurt from it. The word of God is an objective text - when God used an author to write a particular book, the author had intent. Each part of scripture has one meaning - it is up to us through the Holy Spirit to harmonize it all and let IT speak ITS'/GOD'S agenda into our lives. The bible says some pretty "harsh" things to us, but it is not our job to pretend we don't see them or try to play public relations agent for God in defending His' character. Instead, we need to tremble before the word of God and acknowledge its power. Reading the word like this has allowed me to see the complete and whole picture of God - love, sovereignty, wrath, grace - and so much more. God is bigger and better than we paint Him to be and His word is full of that truth." - Justin Anderson (Mainstay)
