From the recording I Wish You Would Believe
When I was a non-believer, I didn't see the point of aspiring to do the right thing. My life was bound up in gratifying my perceived personal needs. When I became a Christian, my perception of everything changed, and I became greatly disappointed by the hypocrisy I saw in the church. I couldn't believe that some people who called themselves Christians would do the things they did, not understanding that they actually might not be Christians at all. "Do You Believe?" was written as a reflection about all this. The song also was, in part, inspired by the famous sermon, "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God," by Jonathan Edwards.
