Top 10 Worst Religious Country Songs of All Time: #7 -- This is God

Today's country abomination is "This is God" by Phil Vassar.

Basically, the song is God's first person account of how much the world sucks. Either that, or Phil Vassar believes that he is actually God.

In the song, this "God" character is basically like a whiny teenager complaining about why the world isn't perfect and asking everyone to please get along. Here is a taste of what the song includes:

Yeah, this is God
I've given everything to you
But look at what you do
to the world that I created
This is God
What's with this attitude and hate
You grow more ignorant with age
You had it made, now look at all you've wasted

I have a few objections to this. First, why is he complaining so much about a world that he claims he created? That's like Bill Gates bitching about how much Windows Vista sucks. Come on God, it's not our fault you developed such a terrible product. Then, rather than taking the blame for the problems on this planet, he begs us humans to please fix things for him. Hey man, it's not my fault you created Britney Spears and George W. Bush. You broke it, you fix it.

If you are going to complain about the world so much, then why don't you step up and fix things? Oh yeah, because you don't exist.

Phil Vassar, this song is horrible, and you have no one to blame but yourself.

There are trillions of cells in the human body. Each cell has millions of strands of DNA.

Even if you believe in evolution, it is still more rational to believe in some kind of intelligent design.

The answer to your question is simple. Imagine that tomorrow scientist invent a microchip to make your daughter follow every rule you set for her. She will always do her homework, she will never do drugs, and she will always love you. Would you install the chip in her brain?

Of course not. Without the chip, your daughter has the chance to break every rule you set. But it is worth it.

Likewise, God created beings with free will. We have the choice to do evil or good. Creating something with choice is far more rewarding than creating a robot.
