"Prove Me Wrong" as written by and Aaron Tate....
Sometime I fear maybe I'm not chosen
You've hardened my heart like Pharoah
That would explain why life is so hard for me

And I am sad Esau hated
Crying against what's fated
Saying father please, is there any left for me

Cast out my doubts, please prove me wrong
'Cause these demons can be so headstrong
Make my walls fall, please prove me wrong
'Cause this resentment's been building
Burn them up with your fire so strong
if you can before i Baal, please prove me wrong

I fear maybe this is all just a game
Our friends and our families all play too
Harness the young and give some comfort to the old

Don't let my doubts prove true
Draw me close and hold me near to you
Keep me still until the day you

    General CommentI really relate to this song. I'm pretty sure it's talking about how hard it is to have faith in something. There was a time when I believed that God was just a myth that people held onto because they were too afraid to face the reality.
    "I fear maybe this is all just a game
    Our friends and our families all play too
    Harness the young and give some comfort to the old"
    Yeah, sometimes you get the feeling that everyone has an inkling it's not entirely true, but they hold on anyway due to societal, familial ties.
    What a wonderful song about the pitfalls of faith and being honest with yourself about your doubts.

    My InterpretationI think there is more. As I understand these lyrics, it is exploring the age old antinomy of God's sovereignty and man's free will. The debaters of this age know this as the classic Calvin vs. Armenian tension who's differences, both subtle and extreme has launched dozens of denominations and have kept Christians busy in opposition for ages.

    The Bible speaks clearly in support of both the doctrine of God's election through predestination and human responsibility in choice. "Sometimes I fear, maybe I'm not chosen", reveals the tension the author feels in the real possibility of not being among God's elect. He then goes on to site the two principal biblical accounts which support the Sovereignty point of view. Pharaoh's hard heartedness and God's hatred of Esau. We read these passages and we might "cry against what is fated" as we acknowledge most of life is completely out of our control.

    How could a just God force us to behavior in a manner that we perceive to be out of our control? The author doesn't choose a side in this controversy but rather takes the road that I believe we all should take... We pray... God, "cast down my doubts, don't let them prove true, hold me close and draw me near to you." When we perceive the Word of God to present itself as contradictory, realize that we see through a glass darkly. God wants us to walk in the light of faith, dependent on Him. "Keep still until the day that He casts out our doubts." Someday the truth will be revealed... What a day that will be!

    General CommentProve Me Wrong isn't really my most favorite song from Caedmon's Call. But the lyrics speaks so much tabout me. Sometimes when troubles come and God failed to answer my prayers. I wonder too if I am one of the elect. Especially at times when I sin, and it's so hard to get out of it. And it's so difficult to concentrate praying, and my mind wanders somewhere else. I asked myself am I another Esau? Am I another Ishmael? Am I not lovable and forgivable? But after quite a while of testing when God finally answers , it's so worth it! The agony of doubt and waiting finally eased out. And I feel so much loved by God. And it reassures me that I am one of His sheep.
