Parody on "Jesus we enthrone you" by Don Moen

I love this melody, it is one of my favourites and I have sung it many times in church.
However have you noticed Luke 22v36 has Jesus telling his disciples to sell their cloak in order to buy a sword if they do not already have one? This happens maybe the day before Jesus is arrested on the Mount of Olives. At the arrest, one of the disciples used his sword to strike off the ear of the High Priest, John 18v10 says it was Simon Peter. So how come that Jesus thought he needed to resort to using swords instead of relying on his guardian angels or other supernatural abilities ? Look at 2 Kings 6v18 which has Elisha pray and the Arameans become blind or what about Acts 5 which has Peter speak to Ananias to which he drops dead or what about Acts 12v23 which has Herod drop dead for merely failing to give praise to God ? Can Jesus calm storms on the Sea of Galilee but not calm human behaviour ? Now adays it is easy to make the excuse that angels don't act to protect people from abuse, things were different in Bible times ? Yet we see even Jesus didn't expect any help from angels even though the devil reminded him in Luke 4v10 of Psalm 91v11 "He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully" What if Peter at Luke 22v38 had said, " but what about Psalm 91v11 ?" would Jesus have replied as in Matt 16v23, " Get behind me Satan." ?  Is this to say, " Only my interpretation of scripture is valid" ?
So although there are some good ideas in the Bible such as the golden rule and maybe some of our modern laws are derived or evolved partly from ideas seen in the Bible, i post below my parody on,"Jesus,we enthrone you". I am only prepared to follow the best of Jesus' ideas but the rest of them I'll leave at the side of my plate.

Jesus we dethrone you,
we proclaim you are fraud
Having studied Debunking Chrisitianity, 
we think there probably are no gods
and as we study we see clearly,
 the things that are false that we once  held dear
but instead of sadness we give a cheer
to think there is no cosmic hell
