challenging popular lyrics

2 12 2010

I don’t have a conclusion on this.  I’d rather just start a discussion.

Where in the Bible does God claim Himself to be all we should want or need? Worship songs tend to use lyrics that proclaim God is all we need, but where does God say that in Scripture?

If there is one argument that comes quickly to mind it’s the beginning of Genesis. Adam was perfect. God saw it fit that He alone did not fulfill all wants or needs when He created Eve. All good things come through God and are found in God, but to say He is all we need or want, I’m having a hard time justifying such lyrics in worship songs.
