"Bind him hand and foot and cast him into the outer darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen." "No one can come to me unless it is granted him by the Father." (Jesus, Matthew 22:11-14 and John 6:65)
"These people draw near to me with their mouth, and honor me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. In vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the precepts of men...Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into the pit." (Jesus exposing the clergy to his disciples, Matthew 15:8,14)

You know the song, originally written by a trader in black slaves who experienced a dramatic change of heart. It's been commercialized and sung to death by everyone from opera divas to rock stars and country & western crooners who have no idea what it means. They will sing it right along with their most treasured songs of sexual infidelity. It's also a favorite at funerals where people neither understand nor believe a word of it.
Exactly what did its author discover which caused him to pen those famous lines? It may not be what you think. When Jesus explained the true meaning of grace, even the churchmen tried to push him over a cliff. (Luke 4:25-30)
Indeed, the meaning is not at all popular today, and is most reviled in the very churches that love to sing the words! The profound understanding which the former slave trader reached was the result of a heart-scorching search into issues that challenge the ego and dismiss the pride of the human soul. The critical aspects of that knowledge are presented in this brief but concentrated study included in the Addendum of The Truth Which Sets Free.
