The Power of the Cross
This is the Getty's singing a song they wrote called the Power of the Cross. I saw them a couple times at Alistair Begg's Pastor's conference. They are actually members of his church. I love the Getty's because they chose to write and sing hymns instead of contemporary Christian music that is all about selling their songs. I love their hymns because they are filled with theology, unlike most of the songs you will hear on K-Love. This song explains the Cross of Christ and what Jesus did for us in our place. Praise God. The Getty's also do something unique. All their songs are first ran by Alistair Begg to make sure they are theologically sound before they ever publicize them. When listening to this song, listen for all the Scripture in it and the profound lyrics about Christ's Atonement. This is unlike the contemporary songs that have no substance at all to them. I recall one song in particular that just says: "Yes Lord, Yes Lord, Yes Yes Lord" for the entire song! Are you kidding me? You have the entire Bible to pull lyrics and this is all you can come up with? The Getty's are a refreshing change from the worldly garbage you will year on the radio. I'm not saying all contemporary Christian songs are bad, there are several groups that are very good but the majority are not worth listening to.
