Rhonda Vincent and Bill Gaither Calls Out Christians In “You Don’t Love God If You Don’t Love Your Neighbor”

by

“You Don’t Love God If You Don’t Love Your Neighbor” by Rhonda Vincent and Bill Gaither is a wake-up call to all Christians whipped in an upbeat tune that will surely encourage you to get up from your seat and start singing. 

Christianity has been around for quite a long time, and it has been guiding a lot of its followers into a way of life that gives praise and shows love to God. And one of its core teachings is that your love for God is reflected through your actions, and that includes loving your neighbors. But some Christians don’t practice this and instead live bending their moral values to cater to their convenience. Rhonda Vincent’s “You Don’t Love God if You Don’t Love Your Neighbor” shines light to that narrative. 

Rhonda’s single features Bill Gaither and contrary to most Christian country music, this song got the tune of a folk-country song, with three finger-style standard guitars and a cello as the main musical accompaniment. This unexpected upbeat tune is a perfect sound to blend with the lyrics that expose the hypocrisy of many Christians.

The Exposé

Just like the Pharisees in the books of the gospel, there are many Christians who would go to church on Sunday and would never miss sabbath day, pray in public, and act blamelessly on Sunday but come the morning of Monday, all those moral values would just fade away. On their weekdays, these hypocritical Christians would engage in fights with their neighbors and would talk foul things about them. 

To call out these Christians, the song’s lyrics specifically reference Matthew 18:21. And in this verse, Jesus says to one of his disciples to forgive a brother even if that brother committed sin against him several times, telling a lesson of mercy.  

Rhonda Vincent and Bill Gaither’s “You Don’t Love God If You Don’t Love Your Neighbor” is a reminder that one can’t love God and does the opposite of what he commands. Being a Christian is not a one-time thing or a lifestyle that one can change depending on what benefits them. A Christian should live by Christ’s commandments every day and take his words into heart.

Listen to the song below, and after that, go ahead and play some more Rhonda Vincent songs.
