Doves in Snakes' Clothing

Sure, you've heard of "wolves in sheep's clothing," but what in the world are "doves in snakes' clothing"? In Matthew 10:16, Jesus told His disciples, "I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves."

Snakes aren't usually looked upon favorably in the Bible, as early and late as Genesis 3:1 and Revelation 20:2. But a bronze snake was literally looked upon favorably in Numbers 21:8-9. Referring to that, Jesus said:

"Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him" (John 3:14-15).

If God can use a bronze snake to heal people who were bitten by snakes, can't He use regenerated rock and roll (so often associated with serpentine sources) to heal people who are snake-bitten by sin? Of course!

The boys in this band got their early exposure to real rock and roll while listening to Pittsburgh's premier rock station, WDVE. Every song we spoofed on this CD was played on WDVE back in the day. In fact, they all probably still are!

WDVE's call letters were chosen in 1971 to look like the word "dove," an image of peace in a war-weary era. We want our parodies to proclaim the message of the Prince of Peace in a world-weary era. As Jesus said, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28).
