Awesome's Songwriter Never Intended It For Worship Services!
Comment #49, by Rebellious Pastor's Wife, notes that songwriter Rich Mullins "never intended this song [Our God Is An Awesome God] to be the 'praise song of the '80's and '90's.' He absolutely hated what it became. When he used the word awesome, he meant the true meaning of the word "fills with awe" not "cool or wow" like in Valley girl/surfer slang. He never intended the song to be a worship song. He meant for people to enjoy listening to it.
