If We Are The Body

Album: Casting Crowns (2003)


  • The song's lyrics are based on the New Testament Epistle of James 2 v1-9, concerning true faith not having favorites. Frontman Mark Hall explained on the liner notes of Wow #1 Hits: "'If We Are The Body' addresses a problem I've seen in churches all over - that churches are a lot like a circle. Circles are great if you're in the circle, but most people find themselves outside that circle for whatever reason. There's not a sign on the door but you get the feeling they've got everybody they need. You're welcome to come, but you're not really ever going to be part of the circle and that's certainly not what the Bible teaches."
