Song Story:  
           I never planned to put the song NO CHURCH SHOULD HURT on the first CD album, "Amazing Grace 'n' Tears."  I'd planned to make GREAT  DANE  FAITH the 12th song. But I worked and worked (and worked) for six weeks and just could not find either the exact melody or the chords that I liked for GDF, whose general melody and lyrics I had written six months earlier. 

       The date to begin CD mastering was only 2 weeks away, and the only other non-Lullabies song I had ready was this one.   I did not really want to publish this yet. I planned to wait until my 3rd album, when people I knew would be paying less attention and would not start asking “What happened –who hurt you in church?” 

 (The answer being that pretty much *everyone* is hurt in a church at some point in time, because churches are full of people who make mistakes.)   After much prayer, I decided to give in to what I felt was God's leading. NO CHURCH SHOULD HURT went on Album 1.
Later, after God had gifted more songs to me to develop, I moved this song to the quite       appropriate new album I had just created, Amazing Holy Spirit 'n' Church."                            
  PRAYERFULLY,  this is an accurate album title for your church:
                     AMAZING... HOLY  SPIRIT ...   IN   ... CHURCH.

    The story ends with more amusement: Within a few days after I had given in and recorded NO CHURCH for Album 1 and we started the final mastering process, I sat down at the piano and found great chords and progressions for GREAT DANE FAITH within an hour.    God has a sense of humor....  :)  

By the way:  GREAT DANE FAITH  ended up on the 3rd or 4th album, AMAZING CREATOR 'N' CRITTERS  (prepared simultaneously with Amazing Hope 'n' Humor -- which was a close runner up for the song's assigned album!)

Dedicated to our Lord Who suffered SUCH hurts from people.... 29 January 2009

People have been hurting each other in churches and 

synagogues for 1,000s of years.  But this song is NOT about US.  GOD says through  First Timothy 6: 4,
"Anyone who teaches anything different is both  
          conceited and ignorant. Such a person has an 
 unhealthy desire to quibble over the meaning of words. 
  This stirs up arguments ending in jealousy, fighting, 
                slander, and evil   suspicions."                        

I know all the whispers they think they have hid. 
I have proof about all the gossip they spread. __
It’s NOT paranoia  that's all in my head:    
    NO church __ should HURT.

I know I’m not perfect; I make no excuse.  
I  need God’s great Spirit for many rescues.
I’ve tried to live holy, yet hear them accuse:
    NO church __ should HURT.
Potential for sin does not mean I’ll succumb.
God promised to help us and to Him I’ve come.
Romans 14  warns not to be stumbling blocks:
    NO church __ should HURT.
First Timothy 1  links gossip with murder.
Colossians 1   shows God makes us holy.
Ephesians 4 shows the way Church should be:
    NO church __ should HURT.
No church has hurt us like church men hurt Jesus. Yet
God warns “Forgive or I can’t forgive you.”
Matt 6: 15 --- if we don’t forgive, we trespass: 

    NO church __ should HURT.
I urge ev'ry hearer of God’s holy Word: Don’t
blame ev’ry person you think might be lured. Beg
God for discernment for your self and church:   

    NO  church ....... should hurt GOD.......... 
           WITH GOD’s                                       
   Help .......... CHURCH WON'T HURT!        


Verse 3:  Romans 14: 12-13
So then each of us shall give account of himself to God.  Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a cause to fall in our brother's way.

First Timothy 1  links gossip with murder. 

Verses 9 and 10.  Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,   For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;... 
 ------ Exaggeration is lying.  Partial truth is lying.  True words said with voice inflections that infer something else is lying.  Even in church.  Even in the name of "prayer concerns."  --DianaDee

Colossians 1   shows God makes us holy
Verses 21 and on.  And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,  in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight-- if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven...    NOTICE that God says here that EVERY person knows the grasp of His Gospel.   

Ephesians 4 shows the way Church should be
