2. HOWARD STERN PLAYS TUNES FROM "KEEP THE CHANGE"
Yes, you heard it right. On Tuesday, Howard Stern once again played ApologetiX on his radio broadcast. This time it was "Manger" and "Life Restored" from our latest CD, "Keep the Change." Of course, we've heard that his commentary in between the songs was less than flattering, but our attitude toward this is the same as it was the first time he played us: God's word doesn't come back to Him void, without performing the purpose for which He sent it (Isaiah 55:11).
It's interesting to see the perspective of an outsider listening to ApologetiX on the Howard Stern Show. The following was posted on one of the biggest Howard Stern fan websites:
"Howard played a couple of clips from this company that takes popular music and changes the lyrics to religious lyrics. He played one example of a Papa Roach song that was originally about suicide. This company Apologetics (Apologetics.com) changed the lyrics to stuff about Jesus and put out the music to try and get kids into religion. KC said that they cover all kinds of music including Rap and Reggae. They covered a Shaggy song so Howard played a quick clip of that before he had to take a break. "
You know the old saying, "Just spell the name right?" Oh, well.

I know we used this one recently, but it applies again this time around:
(God is speaking) : "As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it."
