Axis of Awesome - 4 Four Chord Song (with song titles)
Evidence of the decline of American civilization? For all their technology the American people may be becoming dumb and dumber in general. Fortunately the gospel isn't about high levels of intelligence or complexity structured by the if/then forms of logic that all notions of law and order rest on. It doesn't take intelligence to understand that one is a sinner in need of salvation, especially when the mysterious ordering principle of life within our being dissipates in old age and death. Ironically, the intelligent and wealthy actually have a harder time understanding their need for salvation because they are more capable of ordering their lives and providing for themselves or inventing stories in which it isn't so. But then they die.
