What This World Needs Lyrics

What this world needs is not another one hit wonder with an axe to grind
Another two bit politician peddling lies
Another three ring circus society
What this world needs is not another sign waving super saint that's better than you
Another ear pleasing candy man afraid of the truth
Another prophet in an Armani suit

What this world needs is a Savior who will rescue
A Spirit who will lead
A Father who will love them in their time of need
A Savior who will rescue
A Spirit who will lead
A Father who will love
That's what this world needs

What this world needs is for us to care more about the inside than the outside
Have we become so blind that we can't see
God's gotta change her heart before He changes her shirt
What this world needs is for us to stop hiding behind our relevance
Blending in so well that people can't see the difference
And it's the difference that sets the world free

(spoken)
People aren't confused by the Gospel.
They're confused by us.
Jesus is the only way to God, but we are not the only way to Jesus.
This world doesn't need my tie, my hoodie, my denomination or my interpretation of the Bible.
They just need Jesus.
We can be passionate about what we believe, but we can't strap ourselves to the Gospel, because we are slowing it down.
Jesus is going to save the world, but maybe the best thing we can do is just get out of the way.

Jesus is our Savior, that's what this world needs
Father's arms around you, that's what this world needs
That's what this world needs

I think all they are really saying is Christians should stop arguing with each other about their interpretations and who is right with all the different denominations. Because Jesus is ultimately the only way to salvation. I don't think they are downplaying people spreading the Word of God.
