Much of my life is based around my faith. Actually, all of it is. When things come along and shake that faith it brings a new weight to heft upon my shoulders. I deal with it in a myriad of ways. Often times, it is through study and thinking.
When Underoath released their latest album, I felt one of those tremors. But not simply because I felt personally hurt that they had stepped away from the "Christian" band label and a number of them were no longer Christians, but it was more than that. They were a shining example of Christian music and the veil that is cast over so many people regarding the life behind the scenes and in the context of "Religious" bands.
