Judas

I relate to Lady GaGa’s song “Judas.”

It has received a lot of criticism, obviously because the song is talking about Judas from the Bible.  Judas betrayed Jesus with a kiss.  The song says “I’m still in love with Judas.”

What does this mean?   GaGa talks about how even though he betrays her and his “tongue lies through his brain”, she can forgive him over and over again.  And although “Jesus is my virtue, Judas is the demon I cling to.”  I relate to this, and I feel that all Christ-followers should.  I desire to follow Christ, yet I always feel like I’m caught up in sin.  I end up letting it rule me.

Now, I have issues with GaGa.  I’m not suggesting we bring her music into church (“wear an ear condom next time!”).  I’m just saying, I get this song.

“I wanna love You, but something’s pulling me away from You.”

Just a short post that I’ve been meaning to write for a while.
