Reality Worship Songs

We sing a song at church with this line

Jesus, I believe in You
And I would go to the ends of the earth

It's a popular song and it's by a popular church band — Hillsong United.

What I don't know is how often should Christians sing things that aren't true. How do I know it's not true, because we often sing the song amongst a big group of people singing the song. 

There are lots of opportunities to go to the end of the earth. All the time. Forever.

So, I'm not criticizing the song, I'm simply questioning for me (and for other Christians) about how optimistic we should be when we sing things. Do the things we sing need to be facts, or can they be used as motivation to dig in and aspire to something. 

Another lyric, I'll print it here in the cadence of how it was written

I'm no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God
I'm no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God
I'm no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God
I'm no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God

Each of us have our own struggles. And I want to encourage everyone to be honest and open with themselves as they sing songs at church. What I also want is for the worship service at church not to be another way of making a Christian feel like they don't measure up.

"Gee, I struggle with big fears. I must not be a child of God." And hop back aboard the shame shuttle. Ready for takeoff.

Like it or not, there are many people who get their theology from the music at church more than they do from the preacher at church.

So, should some worship music be optimistic and some be more "real?"

Jesus, I believe in You
And can I plug in somewhere nearby?
Somewhere nearby

 or

I'm definitely still a slave to fear
But I'm also a child of God
Trying to overcome it in baby steps

Maybe there's a place for Reality Worship Songs.
