God’s Gonna Cut You Down

Here is a music video Johnny Cash style. The video has been out for a while but I thought I would post on it anyways. I like me some Cash. I find it very interesting that the people who are in this video are singing along to the lyrics of “God’s gonna cut you down” and wondering if they realize those lyrics apply to them if they do not come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. What do you think?

  1. Russell D. Moore wrote a commentary on this video, raising some of the same questions that you have. I quote:

    The celebrities who agreed to show up in this video probably saw this as a good career move, or perhaps as an afternoon’s tribute to the “Man in Black.” I wonder if any of them realized, as they lip-synced Cash’s song, what he came to see. God doesn’t subscribe to Us Weekly. If there is Botox, it will fail. If there is silicon, it will cease. If there are groupies, they will leave. If there are royalties, they will wither away. Only love is as strong as death (Song of Songs 8:6).

    And love isn’t a commodity to be sold, or a song idea to be packaged. He’s a Man in White.

    I think Johnny Cash would have hated that video.
