In this haunting song from Weston Skaggs, the singer-songwriter puts biblical text to music on “Rich Man.” Singing from Matt. 19, “Woe to you, rich man, it would be easier for you to pass through a needle’s eye than to enter paradise.” Taking it to another—and culturally relevant level—Skaggs adds, “Woe to you Church blue and red, is your religion about what Jesus said—or does that fit your Party line?” Piercing the heart, this track demands an introspective look personally, and Church-wide.
