God is not a White Man

We are still trying to figure out how to teach our children about the Bible and the Christian faith. But one thing I knew: they would be introduced to this gem early on. Our oldest kids, who are only 4 and 2, love it and sing it often. I thought I would pass it along for anyone who hasn’t had the chance to see it. The 20-year-old me would have hated it and slapped me in the face for it.

  1. Ha. I do like this, very much, but I also think it’s very important to recognize this is not the whole picture. Yes, God is absolutely Love; yes, God is absolutely Good. However, the idea of God’s love turning a little girl’s vegetables into candy is somewhat lacking. God’s goodness and love do not mean that we are not still sinful, broken people; the evils of the world come from us, not from a lack of God. Still, a good video and a cute song.

  2. I gotta say it. Where are the Jews? I know we’re less than 1% of the planet, but Paul would be disappointed. Romans 1:16

    God so loved the world that he gave!

  3. It’s awful but…when I watch the video, all I can think of is how many people will be made/are made angry by the “God is Love” refrain, when what they have been shown is God’s love.

  4. i think everyone here is missing the main point of contention in this video. sure, maybe God COULD love RoboCop, but RoboCop on a Segway?!

    candy peas-and-carrots for everyone! good night!
