"Future Tense" is the upcoming 15th CD from ApologetiX. We've already announced the first six tracks and made them available for anybody who pre-orders the CDs. Here are your clues for the next three:
7. More Than a Healing
It's been a long time since we wrote the words to this parody (way back in the mid-1990's), but if we don't look back into the vaults for gems like this from time to time, you'll miss out on some of our best compositions. In this third stage of "Future Tense" recordings, we're ready to share it with you at last. There was something about you fans constantly requesting this one that led us to finally record it. Although we've never recorded a parody by this rock and roll band (specializing in celtic music) before, we used to jam to a number of their tunes in our early practices. This autobiographical songs deals with the peace of mind and satisfied feeling found when a person rediscovers Christ after many years away.
8. Turning a Little Seasick
After we discussed Jesus' miracles on the Sea of Galilee in "Walk on the Water" (2005) and "Swimmer" (2006), you might have thought it was time for us to move along to another theme. But we had to do one more sad song with a happy ending about that fateful night on the sea of Galilee when Jesus calmed the storm. The idea and lyrics came so quickly that before we knew it, we were too far gone to reject it. Once you hear it, you may change your mind about it being a rehash of "Swimmer." This song takes a humorous approach and rather than looking at salvation, it takes the perspective of a person facing trials who can't take it anymore and feels like the Lord might be asleep. It's the last song we plan to do about the Lord turning rough waters into still water, OK? It ends tonight ... or at least when "Future Tense" comes out.
Despite all the sugary talk about love and XOXO in the golden oldies of pop radio, the Bible says that the heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure (Jeremiah 17:11). This ain't a shame -- it's an outrage --not something you'd mention on an evening out with your girlfriend on a Saturday night (unless you want to have a falling out with her), but it's true. And if you don't do something about that heart, you'll take it to your grave. If you don't want to be dead on arrival, you need to get a transplant as God offers in Ezekiel 36:26. You either get busy living or get busy dying.
