When the Prime Minister of Norway came to open a National Park, a government official told a Christian choir not to spoil the dinner by singing about Jesus.
It was last Friday, an official in the Norwegian Department of Environmental Affairs gave an order to stop a Christian choir from singing a song about Jesus. The song «Jesus draw me close to your heart» was cut off the dinner program.
The comment from the Government official is also recorded by the Norwegian Christian daily « DagenMagazinet»:
«During our pre-program practice, the Government official came and asked us if we really were going to sing about Jesus, and spoil a dinner where people were suppose to relax and enjoy», explains the lady priest and gospel choir leader, Hege Elisabeth Fagermoen.
When the ban of the Christian song became public, the Norwegian Government had to issue an apology:
«We want to apologize for that took place. It was a misunderstanding, since the Gospel choir was not supposed to be stopped from singing» explain the head of communication Jon Berg in the Norwegian Department of Environmental Affairs. He explains that the misunderstanding was linked to the song missing in the original draft of the official program.

Today I simply cant understand Atheists who fight against a God they do not believe in. Neither do I understand why some people get so annoyed when someone wants to sing about Jesus.
If you do not believe that Jesus is the Messiah, I guess such songs cant harm you? I mean, as long as the song does not make you believe that He really is alive?
And if the song should change you, what harm can there ever be in eternal life with God our Father in Heaven?
