Kristyn Getty singing In Christ Alone
In Christ Alone, by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend, is one of the most frequently-requested hymns around here. In just a few short years it became a classic.
But you won’t find it in the Presbyterian Church USA hymnal.
Does the PC in PCUSA stand for “politically correct”?
One line in the hymn refers to the wrath of God being satisfied by Christ’s atoning death on the cross. This was too much for the PC corner. “Wrath of God??? Waddaya mean, the wrath of God!? Well I never–!” Next thing you know, God’ll be expecting people to believe in Him. Who knows what that might lead to? “There’s no place in our church for orthodox Christian doctrine!”
If this denomination makes it to the next century, it’ll be a miracle.
