Recently I heard the track “Dark Passenger” by the group Fozzy. It starts off with: Jesus is my co-pilot Or that’s just what they say But it’s not the Savior Who guides me every day Although the lyrics are a bit ambiguous, and it almost sounds like the anti-hero of the song wants to repent,…
Normative Versus Descriptive
As I continue my blessed journey through all 66 books in the Bible, I ran into what I thought could be a humorous example of why you want to make sure whether what you are reading is normative or descriptive. What is normative? Per my Mac’s dictionary: normative |ˈnôrmətiv| adjective formal establishing, relating to, or…
“Local Church Full Of Brainwashed Idiots Feeds Town’s Poor Every Week”
Okay, you probably won’t find a whole bunch of the ONION articles linked on Traditores…and I’m not big on snarky…but this is hilarious. It is so short I can’t excerpt much, but it starts off: MACON, GA—Sources confirmed today that the brainwashed morons at First Baptist Assembly of Christ, all of whom blindly accept whatever…
A Johnny Cash Christmas
Well, after that last post you deserve something back in the right spirit… [youtube=http://youtu.be/jHuFslG6JAQ&w=512&rel=0] Hat tip to Ace of Spades HQ. Merry Christmas!
12 Days of Christmas Mashed-Up
Not a religious Christmas music performance, but entertaining… [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Fe11OlMiz8&w=512&rel=0] Hat tip Hot Air. Happy Christmas Eve everyone!
Little Drummer Boy
My beautiful wife Michelle turned me on to this bit of Christmas cheer: [youtube=http://youtu.be/qJ_MGWio-vc&w=512&rel=0]
Not a Christian song, but in great respect the attitude members of the body of Christ should have (and a tremendous version of this tune): [youtube=http://youtu.be/Aw2YvkxaD0U&w=512&rel=0] And a bonus non-Christian recent-tune favorite:
Is There a Baby in the Charismatic Bathwater?

Evolution Vs. God
I think every Christian, well at least every one who speaks English :-), should see this video. I am usually not impressed when Christian ministries claim they have disproven some secular view (or have proven some supernatural one). They are "preaching to the choir" with me, but that doesn't mean their arguments don't usually have…
JJ Heller’s “Who You Are”
I think it came out yesterday or the day before…but here is JJ (and Dave) Heller's new video, "Who You Are": [youtube=http://youtu.be/F8jilr8qsYU&rel=0&w=512] A great couple who I wish all the success of the world without any of its trappings…
“The Hallelujah Chorus” by the Reed Family
Man, I don't even sound this good to myself while singing in the shower. 🙂 [youtube=http://youtu.be/TC34O8yPR2Y&w=512&rel=0] Hat tip to Dan Phillips over at Biblical Christianity for the video. (Via Dan's @BibChr Twitter Handle.)
My Favorite Song in 2012
The year is not over, but it’ll take a lot to knock this song off the top of my list of favorite songs for 2012: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfkhqpl81NA&w=512&rel=0] Thank you TobyMac, Lecrea, & Nirva Ready…and especially to God for giving them the talent and me the forgiveness… UPDATE: Proof that it's a great song. Augie asked for…
“One Light” by 3 Doors Down
A great "almost Christian" song by 3 Doors Down: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alKUu4g-HM0&w=512&rel=0] I know what (who) the “one light to shine” should be…must be… (And, who knows, maybe this isn’t an "almost" Christian song…) P.S. As of right now you can get a free copy of this single here.
Although you should go see the official version of “Golden Gate Bridge” on his site, I couldn’t embed it [youtube=http://youtu.be/ZBKIyCbppfs?t=2m38s&rel=0&w=512] If you go in about 2 minutes and 38 seconds, you’ll see why I titled this post “Heretic!” 🙂
Luther Plays “Amen” & “This Little Light of Mine”
Nothin' better than an awesome artist (and great human being) singing a Christian song. I take that back, singing two Christian songs is better! 🙂 This is Luther "Guitar Junior" Johnson playing at the Antrim Home & Harvest Festival. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzfW31DvenA&rel=0&w=512] A bonus non-Christian song by Luther:
