"Truth And Consequences" as written by Steve Taylor, Steve Taylor and Peter Furler....
Poster child for the Christian single
Dumped on more than a birdhouse shingle
Tired of the same old crowd, she starts to
Mingle where she don't belong
All God's bachelors hanging in a bunch
Wolves in Wool-lite beat 'em to the punch
Score another knockout, barely bought her lunch
What went wrong?

Let's talk about real life
Truth and consequences
And coming to our senses
And lies we'd best unlearn

Let's talk about real love
Truth and propaganda
Are you really gonna stand for
Love that waits its turn?

I am the voice of the male agenda
Sensitive, strong or shy, I tend to
Act anyway that would possibly send you
Somewhere we can be alone

You're so sure I'm a would be Christian
Suckered by the "Untamed Heart" condition
Love that feminine intuition
Seen that movie, too

Let's talk about real life...

Ok, ok, ok - you've got me
Figured out, I'm a sham, I
Never actually studied for the
Priesthood. I've had lots of
Destructive relationsps, and
I know I don't deserve
Someone like you anyway. It's
Just, there's this strange
Purity about you...almost a
Radiance. Maybe it comes from
Your religious beliefs, I don't
Know. I guess what I'm trying
To say is, you're unlike any
Woman I've ever met...is it
Getting hot in here? Can I help
You with that jacket?

No, no, I know you've got to
Go...Oh! No, it's nothing. I've
Just got this really bad kink in
My neck...you don't suppose
You could just massage it a
Little, could you

    General CommentAs a Christian woman in her 20s, I am well aware that there are more women than men in the church, and I'm pretty sure that the 'boys knew this when they were writing the song as well. As we lose hope that we'll ever find the good Christian husband we'd dreamed of, it becomes awfully tempting to start looking elsewhere for companionship, and with a little bit of convincing, to try to fulfill those long withheld sexual desires. The Newsboys do an excellent job here of uncovering the lies that a single Christian can so easily find themselves led to and showing them for what they really are. The voiceovers of the men in this piece always send shivers down my spine.

    (I wish they still made music like this. It's controversial, but it cuts straight to the heart of the matter and makes you actually think about what's going on.)

    General Commenti love it, it's all about how our actions have consquences and we need to be ready for them. temptation, especially sexually kind, is all over. be ready for it, be ready to stand strong. DON'T GIVE IN! trust me, if you wait until you have sex until you are married you will NOT regret it!!!!
