In case you've just joined us, we have a new CD scheduled to be released on November 7. "Wordplay" features 20 parodies of classic and modern hits, and there are clues as to the identities of two of the original songs/artists below. "Wordplay" is our 13th CD, and these are our 13th and 14th clues:
13. Here I Go (Against All I've Known)
Like the Psalms of David, this song is a prayer and a conversation with the Lord. It's the cry of a sinner who is a long way from home but is ready and willing to become a saint, even though he knows it'll get him into trouble with old friends, who will brand him a fool for believing. This cat's thought it out and counted the cost; it's no slip of the tongue. The song we spoofed here is a cover version of another song, but the original version was done by the same artist. That's not pertinent to the actual context of the song, but we just thought we'd slide it in. Is this a love song or just a straight-ahead rocker? That depends on whether you saw the video or just bought the single.
14. Bone Digger
One thing that really frustrates us is when creationists are portrayed by the media as ignorant fools who believe the Biblical account of creation in spite of supposedly overwhelming evidence for evolution. In fact, many creationists are former evolutionists who became converted because of the wealth of evidence for creation and lack of genuine evidence for evolution. These people are not college dropouts; they're Ph.D.'s in fields like biology, botany, chemistry, geophysics, plant physiology. We've had the pleasure of witnessing a number of debates between leading creationists and evolutionists, and the creationists routinely outfox their opponents. So, there is ray of hope, even for those who are currently fans of Charles Darwin and his descendants. Of course, the idea of a Creator God to whom all men are accountable is offensive to many humans, especially to the modern Western mind. There are atheists who wouldn't follow Christ even if Jesus walked into the room and started doing miracles right before their eyes. Some would even go as far as passing late legislation to forbid the teaching of intelligent design. And they call US close minded. Can you believe it?
