Love You with the Truth

Songfacts®:

  • This challenge about sharing the Christian message to loved ones before it's too late was the hardest song for frontman Mark Hall to write on the Thrive album. "It's a big, upbeat rockin' song about a person realizing that they've been a really cruddy friend because they haven't shared the truth with the person closest to them," he explained. "People say, 'I want to share the gospel, but I don't want to ruin my friendship.' What you are really saying is I love my friendship more than I love my friend. It's tough, but it's truth."
