New Live Acoustic Video: “To Whom It May Concern” from Atlas Rhoads

posted in: News | 0

The Bride has dragged her veil through mud and smeared it across the face of her dearest, Jesus Christ. We are told, “LOVE. ABOVE ALL, LOVE.” But the world doesn’t see that, it sees the mud dripping from our veil.

“To Whom It May Concern” was originally written to a specific person, and rooted from a place of sadness and pain over the secular perception of the Christian Church. Why does Christianity have such a broken and distorted identity? Our true essence is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. But millions across our planet would say otherwise.

This song is an apology for my actions.. and for the global Church. It’s a screaming plea that the goodness and beauty of the Savior not be judged by His saved children. It’s a conversation with anyone who has experienced anything but love from those who claim Christ. We claim Christ in our brokenness and because of our muddiness. He sees it all, every bit of our sin, and pursues us still. But until glory and full restoration, we will fail to reflect the perfection of our pursuer. Forgive us.
