    I took some CDs out of the library and gave them an honest listen. Below are some lyrics that stuck out for me and caused me to think that at some point, Brandon is going to need to decide whether he wants to be the pied piper of the ambivalent, oversexualized, "me first" generation or serve the Lord with his tremendous talent and gifts. Maybe he's already making that decision (some of these lyrics are older) but as we all know, you can't serve God and Mammon, and you can't keep a summer home in Babylon. Brandon Flowers lyrics: "Leave the bourbon on the shelf And I'll drink it by myself" "And my stomach is sick  And it's all in my head But she's touching his chest Now, he takes off her dress Now, letting me go""You got a real short skirt I want to look up, look up, look up, yeah yeah" And these are the lyrics the song that was featured in the Mormon spot... (look up the lyrics to Crossfire by Brandon Flowers)

    "Awesome example of 'being in the world, but not of it."

    Is this really what you think Jesus meant when he told the Apostles that he had chosen them "out of the world"? Or, do you just make this stuff up as you go?

    Awesome example of 'being in the world, but not of it.' Go Brandon Flowers.
