    Zadanie 4. Przeczytaj komentarze. Czy zgadzasz się z nimi?

    1. In the early 1990s, the English rock band Genesis released one of their biggest hits, “Jesus He Knows Me”.  This song’s lyrics do nothing but attack televangelists and pastors. They mainly attack preachers who deceive their congregations (viewers) and use the name of Jesus Christ to extort ridiculous amounts of money from them.

    These lyrics, which are highly satirical, were written at the time when televangelism was becoming very popular in America and various parts of the world. Around that time, numerous prominent televangelists in the United States found themselves in scandals that had to do with conning their own followers. Most of the scam came in the form of the pastors telling their congregations that they would only receive miracles and financial breakthroughs if they gave their monies to “God”. Interestingly, many of these so called “men of God” enriched themselves with these monies meant for “God”. And as if that wan’t enough, they lived very flamboyant lifestyles with these ill gotten monies.  Is “Jesus He Knows Me” against Christianity or religions in general? Many think that this classic is an anti-religion song, but it isn’t. The song just speaks out against unscrupulous preachers and their fraudulent activities.

    2. fucking stupid americans and their bullshit TV preachers. How much does it cost to buy comfort?

    3. This song has nothing to do with atheism. This song came out around the time when there was scandals going on within some Christian churches here in the USA. While there was scandals going on in some churches, mainly in the televangelist tv programs, it certainly does not represent other Christian churches.

    4. Clearly a very bitter satirical song about religion and television evangelists who don’t “practice what they preach” but instead offer salvation for money. But this idea isn`t new. The “rotteness” of the Roman Catholic Church was at the heart of Martin Luther’s attack on it in 1517 when he wrote the “95 Theses” (->Reformation).

    5. I am a Christian and I’ve been to what I call “disfunctional churches” that take advantage of the people’s faith and take almost all of their money, energy, and time.

    Jesus is Real and his Word is so true and deep that all of them who use His name for personal purposes will have their punishment as a hinder for the truth of the Gospel to be spread and reach people. But who can deny we’ve all sinned and everyone of us will have to give account to a mighty God after this life for our deeds, good and bad. And no one of us will pass this test, if it’s not by having beien cleansed by the Blood of Jesus and having faith in Him.

    He is the only one that was born without sin. He was born, lived, died and rose from the dead without sin. He is the only salvation possible for our lives.

    May God bless everybody
