On the Glenn Beck radio show this morning, Beck talked about the song “Slow Fade” by Casting Crowns as a lesson for Americans to be cautious about what they watch and who they follow.

The song is based on these Bible verses – Psalm 1 / 1 Corinthians 10:12-13 / James 4:7-10 / Proverbs 4:23-27 / 1 John 2:15-17 / James 1:12-15 / Isaiah 59:2 / Matthew 13:16-23 / 1 John 2:3-6, 15-17 / Romans 12:1-3 / 1 Corinthians 15:57-58 – and. as the band writes on their website, was “inspired by the spreading cancer of moral failure in the fathers of this generation. As believers, we must guard our hearts and understand the no one crashes and burns. They just slowly fade away one little compromise at a time.”

Beck had never heard of Casting Crowns, but to Christian music fans the band is a household name. The Atlanta, GA -based worship band has racked up an impressive 4.5 million career album sales, a GRAMMY Award, an American Music Award, 23 Dove Awards and 8 chart-topping radio singles.

But what makes the band so special is that their music career comes second to their calling: teaching and discipling. And in keeping with that mission, in addition to the music video above, here is Hall on the teaching video that accompanies the song:

You can learn more about Casting Crowns on the band’s website and see more teaching videos on the band’s YouTube site.  Casting Crowns is on tour this fall with Sanctus Real and The Afters. If you’re looking for a night of great music and ministry, this might be a good concert to check out.
