Lynyrd Skynyrd and Praising the Lord

Last night I went to St. John to get Shane from the airport and on my way there I was listening to the greatest American band ever Lynyrd Skynyrd. I love those guys. I don't know what it is about those guys, but their music is almost perfect. Okay so I suppose that I inadvertantly just made a case for truth being relative. But none the less they have a dang good sound. Seriously, who can argue with three guitars? So as I was driving I was also thinking ( wow thats like three things at once, aren't you proud mom) why can't they make worship music sound like this. The only Christian band that I have heard that is close is Third Day, they are good. So I will ask the question again "Why don't we have worship music like that"?
I have been thinking alot about that the last 24 hours or so and I came to a conclusion, I think. The conclusion: It doesn't matter. I think I heard twice today the concepts of truth and experience being contrasted. I want to worship God in truth. If I demand that the music be of a southern rock sound compariable to that of Skynyrd then I am focusing on the experience. Experiences are good but I can't let my feelings about them be my measure for my relationship with Christ.
Well I did it. I listened to a band my mom doesn't really approve of and I grew closer to Christ.
talk to you all later,

But ya, put a pick of Mt. Rushmore up for ya on our blog cause I know how much you like dead peoeple (Lynrd Sknard - didn't he die in a plane crash, again kidding man). Hey you guys rock have a great week.
