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.

Oh, so it isn't playing on the radio? That would be why I haven't heard it :).
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.
