Wow!!!! first you KNEW the Holy Spirit lived within him. Second, this brave courageous young man picked the perfect song to sing. Absolutely PERFECT! John Lennon could only imagine because he was stoned most of the time. We as God's children, KNOW one day we will live as one for eternity... this young man however, put the message through to the unbelievers. He took his early life "mess" & made it a "message" of salvation in so many ways. One being there are people out there who are ready, willing and able to help those in need no matter what the physical challenges. and....it doesn't matter where you come from either. Jesus loves us all & wants us all to be saved & safe... What an inspiring story... God Bless You Emmanuel (God is with us) if you read this.... or I should say "God's continued Blessings"

Thea Justice ... "Its not just the lyrics, its the meaning"? the lyrics are the meaning. Lennon was very clear that he believed religion was the problem. Also by imagining we can change reality. As a pacifist he believed that all things can be resolved in peace which is not true unless you are OK with being a slave to a dominant individual or organization such as Hitler or ISIS.

Reading the posts I see the very core of the 21st century church. Concerning this young man, he sang a secular song based on secular humanism, which was at the heart of John Lennon. Lennon could write nothing else because it represents who he is. It was just a song. I was greatly moved by his story, but not so much by his singing. He sings good, but not great, in my opinion. He may be much better than this video illustrates given first time nerves and such. But, back to the posts on this blog. There are Christians who take the Bible and God very seriously and believe God has high standards, and there are those who preach the 'lets all get along' message, and that Jesus was a long haired hippy who spread love and peace wherever He went. Throughout our entire church history the church has had leaders that embraced holiness, the fear of the Lord, the blood of Christ, confession, repentance, and picking up the cross and following Him. Today we have a new church that preaches feeling good, being true to self, finding the best you, and a gospel free from the message of sin/confession and repentance. It is a softer, more comfortable gospel and the desire is to see everyone reach across the aisle and include all religions, all morality, all behavior.....just love them. The fact is that there really is a heaven and a hell, and peace is impossible without God. If God withdrew Himself from earth we would destroy ourselves in a flash. The Bible says God IS. God IS the way, God is the truth, God is life, God is love, God is peace, God is the beginning and end, God is light, so just imagine if there were no God.

Katrina Longdo Adler Actually, to be accurate MOST wars are started by the greed and ambition of men. If you look at the genocide over the centuries you will find that the vast majority were murdered by atheist, secular dictators from Russia and the far east. The death toll is in the multiple millions. WW1 and WW2 had nothing to do with religion. The Egyptian empire, Persian, Assyrian, Roman and Greek conquests were never based on religion, in fact, as long as those conquered honored the rulers they were free to practice their own religion.

He choose the perfect song and he's right. We can only imagine how peaceful this world would be without religions or Gods. Well done young man.

AMEN to everything you have said. You are wise in what you say. You are so right. GOD is all over this video. Shame on those who can not see this. GOD is great.

You are very right .it's not about what someone sings. It's about the precious gift that he was giving by God and using that gift to the best of his ability. Yes that wouldn't have been my choose of songs that I would have sang but it wasn't my choose. It's also about the courge that he showed by getting up there to sing in front of everybody. I don't even have that courge. May God bless him abundantly.

correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't Emanuel translate to "God with us"?

  • 2011-10-01T06:44:56

I agree with you Sonshine. That this song had GOD written all over it.How can anyone listening to this song not feel it flowing through your soul? I am sure this family believes in GOD because of what they did for these young men.It takes a REAL CHRISTIAN to do this. Bless this family. AMEN
