Turn to Luke
Parody of "Turn Me Loose" performed by Loverboy and written by Paul Dean & Mike Reno
(Luke 10:29-37)

I was warned a bunch by the local police
That taking this road could end in grief
It's not the newest highway it's not safe at all
And I was hit by thieves I'm feelin' under siege
Playin' rough -- soon they left me to bleed
Upon a Jewish highway with no way to call

And then two came around -- the kind you'd find in town
On the Temple mount
I thought they'd offer first aid but, no, they did not
Well, I've had all I can take I can't take it no more
I'm gonna pass away and die why wait?
There's no aid at all

So why don't you
Turn to Luke, turn to Luke, turn to Luke
In chapter 10 you'll find me but don't wait at all
Why don't you
Turn to Luke, turn to Luke, turn to Luke
You gotta do it right away I'm gonna die

A Samaritan sees
I'm here and stops for me
Taking time to attend to my needs
I thought the dude would shy away because he wasn't my race
And when my wounds were bound
He'd drive me down to town
That was so profound
He gladly spent his own pay -- you might be sayin' no way!

So why don't you
Learn the truth -- turn to Luke 10 for proof
And start in 29, babe and go read it all
Why don't you
Turn to Luke, turn to Luke, turn to Luke
You oughta do it right away find what's inside
Ooh yeah!

So why don't you
Learn the truth -- turn to Luke 10 for proof
And start in 29, babe and go read it all
Why don't you
Turn to Luke, turn to Luke, turn to Luke
You oughta do it right away you oughta do it right away
Why don't you
Turn to Luke, turn to Luke, turn to Luke
You oughta do it right away find what's inside
Turn to Luke, turn to Luke, turn to Luke
Turn to Luke, turn to Luke, turn to Luke
Turn to Luke!

Luke 10:36
"Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?"


No One Likes You
Parody of "No One Like You" performed by The Scorpions and written by Rudolf Schenker and Klaus Meine
(Matthew 5:10-12, John 15:18-25, 1 Peter 4:12-19, 1 Corinthians 4:13)

Go spend a lifetime with peace in your heart
But you long for His heavenly love
'Cause Christians face violence and hate
They want to tease and won't leave you alone
It's getting harder with time yes, I know
They silence your voice night and day

When no one likes you
They can't wait for a fight with you
They imagine the things you do
They just want to beat up on you
No one likes you
I can't say more than Christ, it's true
Find this passage and think things through
5 verse 10 to verse 12 Matthew

Go there and re-read those words of His love
They'll describe all the long and short of
Our hope that I'm feeling these days
Ooh, babe, John 15 you might've read this before
Says they're mad you belong to the Lord
They hated Christ first anyway

When no one likes you
They can't wait for a fight with you
They imagine the things you do
They just want to beat up on you
No one likes you
I can pray for their lives with you
Christ said that is what we should do
In verse 5:44 Matthew
Whoa! LEAD

No one likes you
They can't wait for a fight with you
They imagine the things you do
They just want to beat up on you
No one likes you
I've got way more advice for you
Find this passage and please review
In First Peter 4:12 right through

John 15:18-19
"If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you."


Works
Parody of "Words" performed by Missing Persons and written by Terry Bozzio & Warren Cuccurullo
(Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 2:14, 3:8, 3:14; James 2:14-26; Matthew 7:16-23; 1 Corinthians 15:10; Romans 6:1-23)

Do you have deeds do you care?
Do you need deeds do you care?

My works will prove and bear my salvation out
You worship God above, but I have my doubts
That you realize uh what His Book said
You look at me and say you're into grace
It's like Ephesians 2:10 has no place with 2:8 and 9
You got no works -- you're just dead

What are works for? We're all on missions from the Lord
What are works for? We're goin' fishin'
What are works for? If no one did them there's no use talkin' 'bout God

Read Titus we'll go over doctrine with Paul
If those good works are having no effect at all
There's some funny things to Titus Paul wrote
Come to Titus chapter 2:14 for directions
3:8, 3:14, too, will both give you the strong impression
That there's more to grace -- than Satan might sell

What are works for? In First Corinthians study more
What are works for? In chapter 15
What are works for? In verse 10, listen, you know who's talkin' that's Paul

Do you have deeds do you care?
Do you need deeds do you care?

Let Him preside -- over your dead body
Hope to see it soon when will I know?
Your faith is private, so it's not showin'
But we'll always have works when His grace has changed us
Time's ticking, my friend
But I guess you know it now
I guess you know it now
I guess you know it now, know it now
Now, now, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow

Peruse in chapter 2 in James there's other things you'll find
And Matthew 7:21 if you feel so inclined
Go to Romans 6 I think you'll find it there, too
Maybe a holy Lord is calling you to action
You can't be irresponsible you're not in traction
Go and answer Him before He pulls out the rug

What are works for? We know from James 2:24
What are works for? But no one listens
What are works for? When yours are missin' there's no use talkin' 'bout God

What are works for? Well, no one's gets 'em in the door
What are works for? It's not some system
What are works for? They show we're different from phonies talkin' 'bout God

What are works for? We know salvation's from the Lord
What are works for? With no additions
What are works for? They grow our witness with those who ought to know God

1 Corinthians 15:10
But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them--yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.


Don't Tell Me We're Lucky
Parody of "Don't Tell Me You Love Me" performed by Night Ranger and written by Jack Blades
(Genesis 1:1-3:24, Job 9:1-12, Romans 1:18-25)

There ain't nowhere to move
This ain't no alien movie ah no

That any man can live safely oh no

We've had SETI for years and we're still all alone

Don't tell me life rose on its own

I love the way they use
The Drake Equation to woo me -- ah yeah
I love the Way of Truth
They'd love some phasers to shoot to kill me oh yeah

They say the Bible's a lie, but it was right all along
I'll keep a-clingin' on

So don't tell me we're lucky don't tell me we're lucky
Don't tell me life rose on its own
Don't tell me we're lucky don't tell me we're lucky
Don't tell me life rose on its own
LEAD

Don't tell me we're lucky

Don't tell me we're luckyyyyyy
(Lucky, we're lucky)
Don't tell me we're lucky
(we're lucky, we're lucky)
Don't tell me we're lucky
(we're lucky, we're lucky)
Don't tell me we're lucky, lucky, lucky, yeah!
(we're lucky, we're lucky)

Don't tell me we're lucky don't tell me we're lucky

Don't tell me life rose on its own

Thankfully
Parody of "Faithfully" performed by Journey and written by Steve Perry, Neal Schon & Jonathan Cain
(Jeremiah 31:3, John 10:28-30, Deuteronomy 31:6-8, Hebrews 13:5)

I may run turn into an in-flight son
Still, Lord I have found -- You're on my side
Reckless heart -- seems it won't do right
Spendin' all my life among the wild

They say that the Romans Road makes us part of family
I've read Jeremiah 31 verse 3
And I'm just a stupid man ain't always what I'm s'posed to be
But, oh, Lord You said and I read
I'm forever Yours thankfully

Such is life under this big-rock world
We all need the ground to help us hide
Through grace that's kind always You love us though
Wandering, wayward lambs lost without You
And beggin' Your pardon's easy, but it wasn't fair
You came to Earth and all You got was pain
And I get the joy that we discover in You
Oh, Lord, You bled, and I'm freed
I'm forever Yours thankfully

Whoa oh-oh-oh
Whoa oh-oh-oh oh
Whoa oh-oh-oh oh-whoooooa-oh
Thankfully
I'm still Yours
Thankfully

On the Romans Road
Not alone
Thankfully

Jeremiah 31:3

Born in the Jewish Faith
Parody of "Born in the U.S.A." performed and written by Bruce Springsteen
(Acts 9:1-30, 26:9-18; John 3:3)

Born proud in a dead man's crowd
I first read God's Book when I was just a child
Ended up the Law was a bit too much
Still I spent half my life just tryin' to live up, now

Born in the Jewish faith -- I was -- born in the Jewish faith -- I was
Born in the Jewish faith -- born in the Jewish faith, now

Thought Christians were a lowdown sham
Thought I'd put a rightful end to them
Headed off to a foreign land
To go and kill my fellow man

Born in the Jewish faith -- I was -- born in the Jewish faith -- ah
Born in the Jewish faith I was -- born in the Jewish faith

On that road I was too blind to see
Heard a man say, Saul, why do you punish me?
Fell down I didn't see any man
He said, Saul, don't you understand, now?
(No, I didn't) (no, no) (no, no, no)

I had discovered that all along
I'd been fightin' the Lord, I was so headstrong
How could I be so wrong?

He had someone that He loved lay hands on
I got my vision back when it was done

Now the Bible is gonna mention me
I'll be in Acts 9 with the Lord finally, you know
It's been years since turnin' on that road
Now when I'm done, I've got somewhere to go

Born in the Jewish faith I was -- born in the newest way, now
Born in the newest way -- I'm a long-lost son who found the truest way, now
Born in the newest way, born in the newest way
Born in the newest way -- yes, it's true, God's my daddy in the truest way, now

Oh yeah-eh
Long, long, long ago
On a dark, dark road
Long, long, long ago
Hey!
Long, long, long ago

Acts 26:9-10
"I too was convinced that I ought to do all that was possible to oppose the name of Jesus of Nazareth. And that is just what I did in Jerusalem. On the authority of the chief priests I put many of the saints in prison, and when they were put to death, I cost my vote against them."


Boys Are Scary
Parody of "Voices Carry" performed by 'Til Tuesday and written by Robert Holmes, Aimee Mann, Michael Hausman & Joey Pesce
(Genesis 34:1-31)

As a daughter I was treated kind
But my life's become the scene of a crime
Well, my brothers comfort me with kid gloves but there is a rage
When I tell them 'bout the foreigner's love, what do they say?

Hu-ush, hush weep not, Dinah -- boys are scary
Hu-ush, hush weep not, Dinah -- boys are scary uh oh

I tried so hard not to get them upset
'Cause I knew that they'd do stuff I'd regret
I could tell that they had something in mind -- and something severe
And I tried so hard to be a good bride, but no one's left here

Hu-ush, hush weep not, Dinah -- boys are scary
Hu-ush, hush weep not, Dinah -- boys are scary
Hu-ush, hush weep not, Dinah -- boys are scary uh oh

He robbed me that's only part of the crime
They robbed me when he was treating me kind

Hush, hush weep not, Dinah -- boys are scary
(Hush, Dinah, boys are scary, scary)
Hush, hush weep not, Dinah -- boys are scary
(Hush, Dinah, boys are scary, scary)
Oh-oh-oh, hush, hush cheer up now -- boys are scary
(Hush, Dinah, boys are scary, scary)
Oh-oh-oh, hush, hush weep not, Dinah -- boys are scary
(Hush, Dinah, boys are scary, scary)
Oh-oh-oh, hush, hush, Dinah, stay right over here
(Hush, Dinah, boys are scary, scary)
Uh, oh boys are scary
(Hush, Dinah, boys are scary, scary)
They said, "Cheer up" they said, "Cheer up"
(Hush, Dinah, boys are scary, scary)
Lord God, can't You -- hear me now?

Boys are scary
(Hush, Dinah, boys are scary, scary)

Expected to Love

(Matthew 5:43-48, 6:12-15; Luke 6:27-36; Romans 12:14-21; John 13:34-35; 1 Corinthians 6:1-8)

Your rights are wronged, but your Ride Home
Says, "You're Mine you're not your own"
Your heart frets, your body shakes
You know that this was no mistake

You can't speak (whoa-oh) through clenched teeth
There's no doubt you've been grieved
You're so uptight you can't believe
You must forgive your enemies

Whoa-oh-oh
You like to think that you don't do stupid stuff, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say you ain't good enough
You know, you're gonna have to face it
You're expected to love

There's famous lines that you can read
They start in Matthew 5:43
You want peace in troubled times
Get over this and you'll be fine
Without that mind you can't be saved
Forgiving others as God forgave
But there's something more in Luke
6:29 for you too

Whoa-oh-oh
You like to think that you don't do stupid stuff, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say you ain't good enough
You know, you're gonna have to face it
You're expected to love

He writes in John -- the world will know
You're His by love you've shown
The bar's set by Jesus Christ
In John 13, verse 35

Ohh oohh
You like to think that you don't do stupid stuff, oh yeah
Romans 12:14 through 20 and 21
You know, you're gonna have to face it
You're expected to love

You might as well face it you're expected to love
REPEAT 7X

Matthew 5:44-45
"But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous."


Dweebs
Parody of "Dreams" performed by Van Halen and written by Sammy Hagar, Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen & Michael Anthony
(1 Corinthians 1:26-30, 4:13; John 15:4-5; 1 John 3:24, 4:13)

World turns its back on Christ, the Scriptures and the empty tomb
And once you follow now they'll estrange from you
Yeah, but reach for the opening preach for the Christ
Baby, they said you're weak
But that fighter's inside ya wait up, you'll find
You'll get fire inside ya that the Lord's behind

Some might turn away
Like their brain's under attack
Don't confuse their messy minds
With the clean-cut facts
They slander us both as dweebs
Never prove 'em right, oh!
'Cause they spread those things
But they're liars and hiders wake up, you'll find
We'll get fire inside us that the Lord's behind

So, baby, Christ abides -- Satan knows that He's inside
Oh, that's what he's afraid of
'Cause we belong to the Lord, so just be strong
Show them what dweebs are made of

Yeah, but that fighter's inside ya wait up, you'll find
Fire's inside ya that the Lord's behind
Oh, the Messiah's inside ya, you know, but they're blind

So, baby, Christ arrived, saved all us here who cried
Though this world seems to hate us
'Cause, baby, we belong to a world that's just beyond
Show them what dweebs are made of

And in the end God's dweebs He will defend
Show them God's love that saved us

1 Corinthians 1:26-27
Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.


You Give Up on Bad Days

(Romans 5:3-5; 2 Corinthians 4:17; Hebrews 10:23, 35-39; Psalm 43:5, 98:4, 100:1)

Shout to the Lord but you're too tame
Darlin', you give up on bad days

You're anxious now and much too frail
Your problems seem heavy you could use some help
Today was rough but in Romans 5:3
It says that afflictions they can't break me

Whoa oh oh -- you're alone with God --- yeah
Whoa oh oh -- this whole day seems shot
Don't want to praise Him you're very distraught

Shout to the Lord but you're too tame
You give up on bad days (bad days)
The faint of heart ought to praise His name
You give up on bad days (bad days)
Hey, don't give up -- on bad days

Woo!
He'll change those trials on your list
God prevails over things like this
He'll use those things and that's no lie
And Second Corinthians 4:17 shows why

Whoa oh oh -- you're alone with God
Whoa oh oh -- there's no place He's not
Go on and praise Him, don't panic, just watch

Shout to the Lord but you're too tame
You give up on bad days (bad days)
Your break might start when you praise His name
You give up on bad days (bad days)
Don't give up -- no

Ohhhhh
Shout to the Lord but you're too tame
You give up on bad days
The faint of heart ought to praise His name
You give up on bad days (bad days)
Shout to the Lord but you're too tame
You give up on bad days (bad days)
Your break might start when you praise His name
You give up on bad days (bad days)

You give up (Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)
Don't give up (Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh) (Bad days)
You give up (Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)
Don't give up (Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh) (Bad days)
