01. What This World Needs

The Altar and The Door
by Casting Crowns


What this world needs is not another one hit wonder with an axe to grind
Another two bit politician peddling lies
Another three ring circus society
What this world needs is not another sign waving super saint thatís better than you
Another ear pleasing candy man afraid of the truth
Another prophet in an Armani suit

What this world needs is a Savior who will rescue
A Spirit who will lead
A Father who will love them in their time of need
A Savior who will rescue
A Spirit who will lead
A Father who will love
Thatís what this world needs

What this world needs is for us to care more about the inside than the outside
Have we become so blind that we canít see
Godís gotta change her heart before He changes her shirt
What this world needs is for us to stop hiding behind our relevance
Blending in so well that people canít see the difference
And itís the difference that sets the world free

Jesus is our Savior, thatís what this world needs
Fatherís arms around you, thatís what this world needs
Thatís what this world needs

Behind the Song:
"Galatians is the main basis for this song. False teachers were slipping in and adding to the Gospel. Jesus + being good = the believerís life. Paul builds in a foundation for the Galatian people that it is by faith in Jesus that we are saved. Even today, we, the church, are in danger of adding to the Gospel. Jesus plus my denomination. Jesus plus our style of worship. Jesus plus good behavior. We must be careful not to strap ourselves to the Gospel. ~2 Corinthians 6:3-13 / Colossians 1:13-23 / John 17 / Romans 12:9-21 / Matthew 7:1-3 / John 7:24 / Romans 16:17-19 / Philippians 3:18-20"

"ďWhat This World NeedsĒ has a bit of a venting moment, a rantÖmore rock than anything weíve done beforeÖ Itís about the fact that the gospel is not confusing people; weíre the ones who confuse people. Christians staple so much stuff to what Jesus says like ĎYou canít dress like that or use that version of the Bible.í But we have to remember that God has to change peopleís hearts before they can change their shirts. They need Jesus, and we need to get out of the way." - Mark Hall (Casting Crowns)
