Doobie Brothers : Jesus Is

Doobie Brothers : Jesus Is

Jesus is just alright with me, Jesus is just alright, oh yeah
Jesus is just alright with me, Jesus is just alright
I don’t care what they may say
I don’t care what they may do
I don’t care what they may say

Doobie Brothers – Toulouse Street

[reference article below]
___________________________________________________________________________________

Behold a society for which the name of Jesus is not held as holy.

It has gone from Jesus is just alright to open persecution on the few, very few saints who actually obey Jesus.

When this became known to the Jews and Greeks living in Ephesus, they were all seized with fear, and the name of the Lord Jesus was held in high honor.  (Acts 19:17)

Behold the full album cover of hypocrisy, the dying Christian church today and the open contempt of government for the name of Jesus.

Bonus:

Jesus is not just alright – He is holy.

(songfacts.com)—This is a very spiritual song with a pretty clear message about loving Jesus. Very few mainstream hits are so unambiguously in praise of Jesus, and it was a very odd message coming from The Doobie Brothers. Johnston told Songfacts: “The funny thing about that, we weren’t anti-religious. We weren’t anything. We were just musicians out playing a gig. We didn’t think about that kind of stuff very often. We would be out playing that song when that came out as a single, and all these One Wayers, which was a big movement at that time, would be at the show, and they would run up to the stage with their fingers pointed straight up. At first we didn’t get it, and we finally said, ‘Oh, I know what’s going on.’ So when we would play that song, they would go nuts. They would throw scriptures on the stage, that sort of thing. Little did they know they were trying to enlist the support of the wrong guys.”
