Die Religion Die

Album: Save Me From Myself (2008)
  • Brian "Head" Welch explained the meaning of this song to New Release Tuesday: "This song encourages Christians, who go around judging and persecuting other Christians, to change their mindset," he said. "You see it all the time, but they justify their behavior by saying, 'Well, God showed me this guy is this and that' and 'It says in the bible!' They use Scriptures to give them the green light to judge others. Some of these people just sit in church and gather together every weekend like it's their own little cult or club, but they don' t reach out to anyone with the love of God - and that's what this song is about. It's time to see religion die. We've got to judge ourselves instead of judging others, and most importantly, we have to walk in love."
