Believe it or not, Jackson helped me become a Christian full-on. When I heard him singing like God to a rat, it dawned on my Baptist-soaked consciousness that I was the rat and God was God. As a song from God, Ben is even better.
I am surprised that so many 20-somethings relate to the 70s stuff by the Jacksons. They added a lot of joy to the airwaves. Once we found out what was really going on, things seemed as fake as they should. Nevertheless, no matter what they were doing, or even how they were fooling, don’t you think it is great how God spoke through the gifted vocals and even the weird idea behind the song to, again, create something from mostly nothing? Thanks Michael.
