The Word Of God Spoken Through Metallica
The lyrics to “Creeping Death” inspired a pastor in Canada. “The song was written by Metallica based on the 10 plagues and the Exodus,” said the preacher. Metallica lyrics being preached in a Church is wild enough, but the story of how it happened is truly something to be shared.
“Some kid asked me at church to preach Metallica. I sort of said, ‘Yeah, sure,’ and told him I’d pray about it, which is how we slough people off, and then the next day someone from our church called me with Metallica tickets,” Van Sloten said. “So my wife and I went to Metallica and had an experience there, in a very deep communal sense that these people are all sharing a lament and a feeling of injustice about how screwed up the world is. That got my heart into it so I went back and read all the lyrics and as I was reading their lyrics I would have a biblical truth or a scriptural passage come at the same time.”
Van Sloten was inspired to begin employing Metallica songs, including “Creeping Death,” in his work as a pastor at the Christian Reformed New Hope Chuch.
This shows that God truly will speak to you through anything, even Metallica.
