Merry, did you know that your Barrow-blade,
Would stab the Witch-King of Angmar?
Merry, did you know you and Éowyn,
Would fight on the fields of Pelennor?
Did you know that Saruman
And the trees would fiercely feud?
The Ent-draught you grew to like,
Soon would grow you too!

Merry, did you know…
Merry, did you know that Théoden,
Would dub you an esquire of Rohan,
Merry did you know that Éowyn,
Would give Faramir her hand?
Did you know that your best friends,
Walked where orcs did trod,
And that the gates of Minas Tirith,
Would kiss the face of Grond?
The blade renewed, by Isildur’s heir,
The dead will fight again,
Sméagol will leap, the ring will sink,
Thanks to Frodo and Sam
Merry did you know Saruman would scour your nation?
Merry did you know that his corpse would look like a cremation?
Did you know that Frodo then Sam would sail to Undying Lands?
And that you would wed Estella, and die a knight of Rohan?

Too many Christians derive their theology from contemporary Christian songwriters who derive their theology from other contemporary Christian songwriters who also have never read the Bible or studied historical theology.
*Contemplating whether I should leave it at this or unload*
Plot twist: People on Twitter are encouraging me to say controversial things. I never saw that coming.

I’m heading out for a few hours, so my crusade against CCM will be delayed until later tonight.
