Wow, Wareham below made almost the same comment on One Step Closer. Dude, not everything from the Doobies has a hidden religious message. Go listen to Black Water and see if you can find it there. On Jesus is Alright I think you be closer.

If you listen to this song with the thought of being saved and redeemed by Christ, it creates a different feel. There is such an incredible sweet freedom in knowing that we don't have to worry about the cares of this world any longer when we trust The Lord with our lives. This could be a gospel song. Just the way I hear it. Rev Rob

I also wanna say this song can really pick my draggin' arse off the floor. Good elevator pop energy.

FYI, this tune was written for the '86 cop-buddy comedy Running Scared starring Greg Hines and Billy Crystal, who are also background vocalists on this track and who appear in the video.
