Every Monday I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay from the previous week. It’s the continuation of a weekly hobby that goes back 40+ years. Here’s this week’s chart:

# 1 This Week In:
2021 – “Good God Almighty” – Crowder
2020 – “Almost Home” – MercyMe
2019 – “Confidence” – Sanctus Real
2018 – “Freedom Hymn” – Austin French
2017 – “I Have This Hope” – Tenth Avenue North
NEW # 1 – After 4 out of the past 5 weeks at # 2 Brandon Heath finally ascends to my top spot with his peppy “See Me Through It”. It’s about turning to God when times get tough – when the road gets rough. In the trial and the pain – fire and the rain. With a full-scale attack – devil on my back. I know You’re gonna see me through it.
NEW # 1 NATIONWIDE – Jordan Feliz rises to # 1 nationwide with the most played song (by far) at U.S. Christian radio – “Jesus Is Coming Back”. It also spent 2 weeks at # 1 on my chart 6 and 7 weeks ago. It’s Jordan’s first # 1 song nationwide since his gold-certified debut smash in 2015 – “The River”.
FATHER STU – I saw “Father Stu” at a local movie theatre last Tuesday afternoon (first showing nationwide). It stars Mark Wahlberg as boxer-turned-priest Stuart Long (1963-2014). Mel Gibson plays his dad, and Jacki Weaver plays his mom. It was written and directed by Rosalind Ross – Mel Gibson’s partner. It’s touted by the media as a faith-based film, but I wouldn’t describe it that way. I think it’s more of a movie about a guy who turned to God. There’s a difference between a big-budget Hollywood movie about God and an independent faith-based film made far away from Hollywood and funded entirely by born-again Christians. Sometimes Hollywood gets it right, and sometimes not so much. I have mixed feelings about “Father Stu”. It was a good story, but I was turned-off by its extreme profanity, and heavy drinking and smoking throughout. (It’s Rated-R as a result.)
This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again this upcoming weekend – with 4 new entries – known as #TravelThursday, #RetroFriday, #SundayScripture, and #Top10Monday.
