    i just listened to Bless the Broken Road by Rascal Flatts,
    do you think that could be taken in Christian context also?


    I set out on a narrow way many years ago
    Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
    But I got lost a time or two
    Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
    I couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to you
    Every long lost dream lead me to where you are
    Others who broke my heart they were like northern stars
    Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
    This much I know is true
    That God blessed the broken road
    That led me straight to you

    I think about the years I spent just passing through
    I'd like to have the time I lost and give it back to you
    But you just smile and take my hand
    You've been there you understand
    It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true

    Every long lost dream lead me to where you are
    Others who broke my heart they were like northern stars
    Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
    This much I know is true
    That God blessed the broken road
    That led me straight to you

    And now Im just rolling home
    Into my [savior's] arms
    This much I know is true,
    That God blessed the broken road
    That led me straight to you

    That God blessed the broken road
    That led me straight to you

    if you change a few words around, it could be completely taken as a religious song
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    It definitely can be made into a Christian song. Selah... or however you spell it actually sings it as well, and it is played on the Christian stations in my area.

    I heard the story behind that song, and it's still a great song. Along with that is 'Concrete Angel' and 'Alissa Lies'

    I'm not normally a big fan of Rascall Flatts but this song i do like. It's pretty and I like the message :] 'specially if it's in the context you suggested.

    I've never heard of Rascall Flats, but I am familiar with the original version of the song by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

    If you're an emergent, then I guess you'll consider it a "Christian" song, but, as a Christian song, the doctrine is terrible.

    We don't come to Christ because of bad experiences. We come to Christ because we're convicted by the Holy Spirit of our sins and recognize our need to repent and put our faith in Christ and His atonement on the cross on our behalf.

    I don't get the part about "You've been there/you understand". The Bible says that Jesus is acquainted with grief, but it never says that He was a sinner.

    Likewise, we don't "start out on a narrow road". In the Bible, the "narrow road" refers to the road taken by those who are born again. Until we're born again, we're on the wide road to destruction and the Bible says that no one seeks after God.

    I predict I'll be called a Pharisee and a legalist in 3...2...1...
