I think that in the context of FGC YMs, he's actually being intriguing for just mentioning Christ positively. The real joke/point/fun/message of the video is to see all these Friends at an oh-so-silent meeting for worship get moved (by the Spirit, right?) into dancing. So, he's encouraging staid-and-stuffy silent Friends to get involved in their religion, go deeper, sing and dance in worship, and start getting some kind of relationship with Christ. What more could you ask? :-) (Reposted from my YouTube comments.)

Did you see that this artist, Jon Watts, has written about what led him to write this? He is trying to express a particular attitude that he encountered as a young man in FGC, and encourages people to consider what they mean by christianity and to engage with people they encounter who relate to the chorus lyrics.

Pendle Hill is a wonderful place to commune with God. The diversity of Friends is definitely on display here in this video. I am decidedly and passionately Christian, but truly appreciate these words of truth spoken in love.

Friend, speaks my mind!
