A songwriter's motivation

(Update: This post seems to have resonated with quite a few people.
Thanks to Dave@Blue Fish Project, Matthew @ Audience Of One & Ben Green @ '...' for the quotes, links & tweets!)

A note from my diary (21/12/07)

It's no light thing singing doctrinally accurate & 'sharp-edged' songs. I am singing & writing the very truths that got my brothers like Athanasius exiled or killed.

I must not cheapen their memory & the freedom they won by putting trivia in the mouths of God's people.

Nobody was ever burnt at the stake for saying "God is nice & He likes you"
