325 Man’s Faith in God Is Intolerably Bad

Verse 1

Many follow God just to gain blessings or avoid disaster.

The moment they hear of His work or management,

they lose all interest.

They don’t see how something so dull could benefit them.

So although they’ve heard about God’s management,

they pay it little attention.


Pre-chorus

They don’t see it as precious and fail to receive it

as part of their lives.

These kinds of people have only one purpose

for following God, which is to receive blessings.

So they cannot be bothered if it doesn’t involve this.


Chorus

Man’s relationship with God is one of naked self-interest,

a relationship between a giver and receiver,

like a worker who works to be paid by his boss,

with no affection, just transaction,

no love given, no love gotten,

only mercy or just charity,

no understanding, just silent anger.

There is no closeness, only deception

and a divide that can’t be crossed.


Verse 2

Now things have reached this point,

is there someone who can change this?

And how many can understand how acute

this relationship is?

When people get immersed in the joy of being blessed,

none of them can know how ugly and shameful

such a relationship is.


Chorus

Man’s relationship with God is one of naked self-interest,

a relationship between a giver and receiver,

like a worker who works to be paid by his boss,

with no affection, just transaction,

no love given, no love gotten,

only mercy or just charity,

no understanding, just silent anger.

There is no closeness, only deception

and a divide that can’t be crossed.
