Yes, He is | Reviewer: Keesha | 6/30/12
Great song, I love it. I also like the rendition of this song done by Indiana Bible College! Everybody is too busy looking at "famous" celebrities, but really, what have they done? My Lord is famous in all the earth, for there is none like him. For the ones who do not think he is famous, you will have to wait for his GRAND entrance!
I'll use this time to let you all know that we must repent and turn from sin! Christ (God manifest in flesh) came and Died, he was buried and he rose again. So we must Repent, baptize in his name (Jesus), and receive the gift of the holy ghost. For we are saved by Grace (God's part) through faith (our part). We are born under the sentence of sin (on our way to hell), that is why we must be born of the spirit and we Need the holy ghost (Christ in us) to live this life, for it will also raise us up on that grand and glorious day!!! Peace and blessings
"famous is a atrribute" | Reviewer: friend of God | 12/17/11
roflol....of course famous is a human attribute and if Jesus wasn't "all man" as well as being "all God" your sacrifice wouldn't have been perfect nor would you have any hope!! some people just wanna downgrade others in thier religous zeal. fyi...get saved and get over that junk.
God (YAHWEH) is famous | Reviewer: Eric Wyse
The fame of YAHWEH spread throughout the known world as God delivered the Israelites from bondage in Egypt, and gave to them the promised land. This is an acurate portrayal of God's fame thousands of years ago - and today we still proclaim his fame. He is THE Famous One.
The dictionary definition of famous is: known about by many people
It is derived from the word fame: the condition of being known or talked about by many people, esp. on account of notable achievements
God was famous for his notable achievements on behalf of his covenant people.
This Sunday our church will sing of God's fame - "You are the Lord, the Famous One".
Really, this is what you "christians" have time for? | Reviewer: Disappointed | 4/21/09
I can't believe that on a Christian worship song there could be so much bickering and non-christ like attitudes.
Aren't you christians supposed to be out witnessing and showing the love of the kingdom? or is this how you are spending your time?
how much do you have to hate people (which jesus never did) to waste time arguing on a dumb website instead of living out what you proclaim to be truth.
if this is what you do with your time you will never make a difference for your kingdom. i am so sorry for you.
i hope that your God has pity on you.

Well maybe you don't agree with JD, but do you have to say it that way? God says not to judge people; so you don't have to judge people, here specifically JD. Yes you can tell them what you think, but I don't think there is no need to criticise! And JD, maybe it wasn't very appropriate for you to call the song ridiculous. It may not match your expectations, but it does match that of others and does reach out to other people. What do we show to non-believers about Christians if we cannot make peace among ourselves, and don't even obey God? How can we lead them to Christ by doing what we do?
does it matter? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/7/08
does it matter? so what he used the term "famous", big deal! he is still glorifying our beloved God. God is who you want him to be. to me he is my father and my best friend. others he is their God. For chris, God is "the famous one" the one heaven declares and glorifies. the one that he glorifies. you state that famous is such a humanish quote, well i hate to break it to you, but we are just that. mere mortals. we have no words that describe him. the term wonderful is not enough, nor is the term divine-believe it or not!
The Main Thing | Reviewer: Phillip Buchanan | 1/2/08
I find it slightly Ironic that in a discussion about a song exalting God, all I hear is agruements. The Psalmist said "Who can fully declare your glory?" Tomlin knows that he cant fully exalt God, so he does his best with the talent God has given him (quite a bit, Id say). The issue here is not whether this song "does God justice" (Impossible to do) but whether Tomlins heart is in the right place. This is about praising God, not pleasing men.
ugh... | Reviewer: Pr. Andy | 9/16/07
man, can we be any more religious? Yes our words off course dont measure up to what/who God really is, but how else would you describe HIM? that was the typical comment from someone who lives in the flesh and is not spiritually mature to understand that there's nothing we can actually do that will impress the Lord, cause He created us and everything around us! yet, He DOES rejoice in us doing His will and that's exactly what Christ Tomlin is doing.
"And for all You've done and yet to do
With every breath I'm praising You
Desire of the nations and every heart
You alone are God
You alone are God"
tell me if that is not exalting God?!?!?!?
Let's stop criticising others and maybe we should learn something from Chris Tomlin in how to submit to God's will, and that is making the name of the Lord great in the earth. (great comission)
two sides... | Reviewer: Caileigh
JD does have a point, kind of. God is beyond any worldly words we could label him with. But JD is also wrong too. Yes, He is above any word to call him, but we can try. No, they won't measure up, but we have to describe him somehow and our only reference is the bible so you do the math...
JD must be Church of Christ | Reviewer: Get Real
That is a typical Church of Christ remark. Just give credit to Tomlin for writing an awe-inspiring song. You must believe in water-baptism as the way truth and the life right? HAHA. So I guess just like you missed that mark too, you think also that God isn't famous? How can you say he's not famous. That's blasphemy my friend. You worship Satan. (or your church of christ...same thing)
Famous one... | Reviewer: Josh
I highly doubt that Chris Tomlin was saying that he's "only" the famous one. He only touched on one aspect of our amazing creator. I think this song is far from ridiculous. I don't think that any song could ever fully encapsulate our God, but I don't think Chris Tomlin was trying to do that, only trying to shed light on one simple aspect, the only way he knows how, the human way...
to JD... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/3/07
JD, Do you not have anything better to do than write ridiculous comments about this awesome song? I doubt you've ever heard Chris talk about this song... Do you realize that Jesus Christ is just about the most famous person ever? He is UNRIVALED! chris wants people to see that Jesus is the famous one not him... THIS SONG IS AWESOME AND GOD IS USING CHRIS TOMLIN IN SUCH AWESOME WAYS BECAUSE HE DOESN'T CARE IF he BECOMES FAMOUS! HE KNOWS IT'S ALL ABOUT HIS GOD AND MAKING GODS NAME KNOWN (FAMOUS!) IN ALL THE EARTH!!!
JD SUcks | Reviewer: JD Hata | 3/16/07
JD you're a religious snob. Get over yourself.
IN THIS WORLD | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/8/07
IN THIS WORLD SOMETIMES WE NEED TO INTERPRIT THINGS IN OUR OWN LANGUAGE. I AM AN ARTIST WHO ONCE TRIED TO BE FAMOUS AND REALIZED I WAS GIVING GLORY TO MY SELF WHO BY FAR IN MANY WORDS DOES NOT DESERVE IT. I AGREE NO WORDS CAN DESCRIBE THE AWSOME AND HOLINESS OF GOD BUT NOT EVERYONE UNDERSTAND WHAT THOSE GREAT WORDS MEAN. WE NEED TO SPEEK TO THE GENERATION TO LET THEM KNOW GOD NEEDS TO BE THE STAR OF THE SHOW. LOVE IT.
"Famous One" - What Have We Come to? | Reviewer: JD | 10/17/05
What a ridiculous song. God is not "famous", he is so much more. He is the great God of the universe, Alpha and Omega, and named by too many divine attributes to list here. "Famous" is a human attribute, not divine.
