What Are the Final Five Tracks?
Wed., Feb. 13. 2013 12:01pm EST

In case you missed it, here's some info about the final five songs from our upcoming Hot Potato Soup CD:

For Just You
Maybe you've heard this statement before: "Jesus would have died on the cross for you even if you were the only sinner in the world." Is there any biblical evidence to back that up? Well in Luke 15:4-7, Jesus told a parable about a shepherd leaving 99 in his flock to find one lost sheep, and added, "I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent." This is the studio version of the song we debuted live on 20:20 Vision.

Weep Jeremiah
Poor Jeremiah. He loved his people so much, but they considered him a bad influence (because he always seemed to be prophesying doom and gloom) and a traitor (because he told them the only way to avoid God's wrath was to surrender to the invading Babylonians). Of course, he was proven right, but it's not like that made him happy. As he wrote in Jeremiah 9:1, "Oh, that my head were a spring of water and my eyes a fountain of tears! I would weep day and night for the slain of my people." This is the studio version of the song we debuted live on 20:20 Vision.

Too Pregnant
We wrote the original version of this parody back in 1995 -- it's been waiting that long to make it onto a CD -- and revised the lyrics in 2011. It's a pro-life parody, which makes it sure to be controversial, but we truly hope it presents the pro-life position in a thought-provoking yet compassionate way. It's called "Too Pregnant" because we believe that even if a person is in the earliest stages of pregnancy, that's still "too pregnant" too terminate it.

Lock
This song is from the perspective of a person who seemingly walked away from the faith but is now coming back to Christ. As he gets closer, he realizes Jesus never actually went away. As Romans 11:29 says, "for God's gifts and his call are irrevocable." It's called "Lock" because he's unlocking the door to let the light back in. We hope that this song provides hope for those who feel estranged from the Lord and those who know people in that situation.

Cemetery Came Alive
Did you know that Jesus wasn't the only one to bodily rise from the dead after the Crucifixion? The Bible says that immediately after He gave up His spirit on the cross, the veil of the Temple was torn in two, an earthquake occurred, and "The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus' resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people." (Matthew 27:52-53). Notice that it doesn't say they were ghosts, but that their bodies were raised to life! That little-known part of the story is recounted in this song.
