I Love The Song…But…

Zach Williams has a great voice!

I love his song, “Fear Is a Liar.”

If you are not familiar with it, here it is:

What’s my “but” about?

I wish he’d written, “Satan is a liar.” (perhaps one of the reasons he did not is because there exists a song by that name, though not hugely popular)

Since Williams personifies “fear,” it’s easy to suppose he meant Satan…


“Fear” is not a bad thing…particularly “fear of the Lord” which is, of course, “…the beginning of wisdom…”

Please know, I am not hammering Zach…I want to see him in concert!

Just expressing a preference.

What do you think?

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."

  1. I agree completely. I think about that every time I am cranking the song on my radio. (Haha…I rather like it.) According to John 8:44, Satan is the father of lies. He lies about a lot of things, including telling us to be fearful when we shouldn’t. Minor detail? Still bugs me a little.

  2. I love this song as well and would also enjoy seeing Zach in concert. The thing I love about it is that every time I hear it I can substitute whatever I am struggling with at that moment for the word “fear” and have an instant reminder that my God is bigger than any of those things. Self doubt? Anxiety? Temptations? Anger? Depression? And yes, fear as well. Knowing all these things is Satan at work is a given for me but this song allows me to break it down to a very real, daily, even minute by minute challenge that I’m struggling with and instantly desire for God to “Oh, let Your fire fall and cast out all my fears
    Let Your fire fall Your love is all I feel”. Just my two cents. Lol.
