WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SING ABOUT?


Clarence Darrow, the famous atheist lawyer – once took part in a debate at a church in Chicago. In his attack on the Christian faith, he tried to play on the emotions of the black people who were there, and on their social misery. This was the heart of the depression he said – no money, jobs and little hope. He amplified their despair and frustrations. In one moment of eloquence Darrow said:

"I don’t understand it – you sing such great music – I have heard you singing here today – amid all the woes of life – how can you sing? What in the world do you have to sing about in the face of life like this?"


Darrow had asked a rhetorical question, not expecting an answer; like a flash a woman stood up right in front of him and said, "Why do we sing? What do we have to sing about? We have JESUS to sing about!"


They all shouted, "Amen!"
