ow can you be of God?
When you look, when you dress,
when you smell just like the world
Do you see me as being bad,
a friend your children shouldn’t have,
just one glance and you know what I’m about

It’s not the length of my hair, it’s not the clothes that I wear
But it’s the cross that I bear
Cause you know that I am

In the world not of it
Cause we gotta show the world He loves them
Even though we look the same we’re not the same

God where can I look for you?
What will it look like,
what will it be like when I gaze my eyes on you
Will I find You a hungry man, will I find You in a prison,
or will I find You in the office of a church?

    General CommentI love this song and comletely relate to it. I'm a hardcore Christian, but my long hair, pierced ear, and love for CHRISTIAN rock often repulses people.

    This song was inspired by a preacher that Kevin saw on the street. After the man was finished, Kevin went up to him and thanked him for what he was doing. The preacher seemed surprised, and asked how Kevin could be a Christian when he looked, dressed, and smelled like the rest of the world.

    But, according to 1Samuel 16:7 (which is where the chorus is derived from), "Man looks on the outside, but God looks in the heart."

    Our outward appearance, so long as it does not dishonor God (i.e. paganistic symbolism, etc.), is of little importance. It is our fruit that God looks at.
