"burn down the mission"

Introducing this song from 1970 in 2003 in the Amphitheatre in Ephesus (how biblical a backdrop could you want), Elton John adds that is "very much influenced by the gospel side of things.":

It was haunting and Godhaunted in its original studio version, as was all of a classic album ("Tumbleweed Connection").

1970 Live:

Could it be that there are times in history we must pray "burn down the mission, Lord" to keep the mission alive?

Bonus: with an orchestra '03:
