    I love country music for many reasons but especially for this. You never hear ANYTHING like this in pop, rock, or rap. It takes a good man with a good heart to sing this song. God bless Josh Turner

    He always wore those worn out flip-flops
    Spent hours in his Daddy's workshop
    he loved being on the water
    Fishing with His friends
    He always listened to the old folks
    When they'd tell stories and crack jokes
    Didn't talk back to his Mama
    When she got onto Him

    Oh, that's just the way He was raised
    Had to finish all His chores 'fore He could go outside and play
    they always went to church that's were he learned how to pray
    And that's just the way He was raised

    He grew His hair out when He got older
    Grew it clear down to His shoulders
    Started hanging with the outcasts
    When He went off to town
    Some called Him a troublemaker
    Even some said a lawbreaker
    No matter how they talked about Him
    He never put nobody down

    'Cause that's just the way He was raised
    When people start to gossip, He'd just walk away
    He always loved his neighbor no matter what they'd say
    Oh, that's just the way He was raised

    On a cross, on a hill
    That longhaired boy was killed
    All our sins washed away
    When He walked out of that grave

    Oh, that's just the way He was raised
    there's no way we can measure
    The sacrifice He made
    He knew He had to die
    For our debt to be paid
    Oh, that's just the way He was raised

    It took the hand of God to roll the stone away
    And that's just the way He was raised
    Yeah, that's just the way He was raised

    This song made me cry because how beautiful it is. It reminds you that Jesus was a boy and had fun like any other human.

    Yeah I got the CD for Christmas. I let my friend listen to it and she kept asking if he was singing about his son. Finally when Josh sang "On a cross, on a hill
    That longhaired boy was killed
    All our sins washed away
    When He walked out of that grave " she goes"Oh my gosh!! Josh Turner's son died just like Jesus!" She was kidding of course.

    I love sons like this because it reminds you that, yes Jesus was God, but he was also a person here on Earth. It reminds me of my favorite Christmas Carol "Mary Did You Know." It's talking to Mary and says "Mary did you know that your baby boy would walk on water, save us from our sins, that son that you delivered would soon deliver you, ect."I like to be reminded that Jesus was a human.

    I know, I love that song too! It is amazing, and has always been one of my favorites. I love songs like that also.
    A really awesome book is "Two From Galilea". It is fiction, but it is about Mary and Joseph and their story, and the second book "Three From Galilea" is about Jesus growing up. Even though they are fiction they are really wonderful books to read... makes you think about how they were real people, not just the glorified figures that we like to make them into.

    Exactly, I love to imagine Jesus as a kid like me. I'm not saying,by any way, that he shouldn't be seen as the King or Son of God, but we have to remember who he was a person.
