We're putting the finishing touches on a brand new CD, "Wordplay," which is scheduled to be released November 7. "Wordplay" features 20 parodies of classic and modern hits, and our weekly newsletters feature two clues per week. Here are clues #15 and 16:
15. Want it Dead or Alive?
You can run away from the truth in this life, but everyone will have to face the facts on the other side of eternity. The truth always wins out in the long run. Lay your hands on a Bible and see for yourself in verses like Philippians 2:9-11, Romans 14:10-12, and Psalm 66:4. Some keep the faith but others say, "It's my life, and I'll live it like I want to," never realizing the slippery slope they're on. They want to go out in a blaze of glory, regardless of how high the fahrenheit might get in that blaze. Others plan to repent after they're finished "living," uttering a prayer for salvation at that time, but time goes by so quickly they never say goodbye to their old way of life. That's why the Bible says, "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts." If you've ever wanted to bounce back from a life of sin, the time is now.
16. Won't Get Born Again
You can't explain the full story of antichrist with just one book of the Bible. Oh really? Sure, the book of Revelation includes much of the details, especially in chapter 13, but the seeker will find plenty of other pertinent passages in Daniel 11, 2 Thessalonians 2, 1 John 3, and Matthew 24. Those chapters join together to paint a portrait of a false peacemaker who strikes a bargain with the nations to become a substitute messiah. But behind those blue eyes lurks the cold heart of a beast. Who is he? Nobody knows for sure, but he could appear anyway, anyhow, anywhere -- maybe even in our generation. You better read the Bible to find out what's (and who's) next.
