Stories Behind the Other Songs on Apoplectic
Wed., Nov. 12. 2014 2:12pm EST

Seven of the 13 tracks on Apoplectic were released earlier this year as downloads, but this is their first time on CD. Here's what each one is about:

2. Proving My Religion
This one goes out to the ones God loves: always REMember as you stand in the place where you live: "But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect ..." (1 Peter 3:15).

3. God's Own Son
Even if you feel superunknown to the rest of the word, in your blackest of days, God knows and cares about you. Jesus says, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28). "For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." (John 3:17).

4. Aaronic
Contrasts the priesthood of Aaron with that of Jesus, a high priest after the order of Melchizedek, as prophesied by David a thousand years earlier in Psalm 110:4. Melchizedek first appears in Genesis 14 but is discussed in great detail in relation to Jesus in Hebrews chapters 5-10. If you read the Bible, you oughta know that already. If not, you live, you learn.

6. One More Wall
This parody about pulling down strongholds starts with Joshua but continues on to modern times. Whether it's in Jericho or Berlin, it's just one more wall for God to knock down. All around the world, whatever raises itself up against the knowledge of God will be shaken by our Maker. It may be here now, but it'll be falling down soon enough. For more info, you should definitely read 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 and maybe all of Joshua 6, too, while you're at it.

8. God Knows You've Tried
An encouraging message for Christians who fear they've failed God once (or many times) too often: "God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them" (Hebrews 6:10). You're not saved by those good works, but they are evidence of the good work He began in you, which He will bring to completion (Philippians 1:6).

9. This Is from Paul
The Apostle Paul confronts the threat of legalism in his letter to the Galatians, using some of the strongest warnings he employes in any of his epistles. He says that anyone -- whether it be man or angel -- who preaches a different Gospel than the grace of Christ is under a curse (Galatians 1:6-10) and that those who rely on the works of the law for their salvation are under a curse (Galatians 3:10).

11. One of Us Indeed
The original song we spoofed here asked the question, "What if God was one of us?" Well, He was! Some people just don't want to accept that fact or accept Him. God the Son was born into this world as a bona fide, flesh-and-blood human being. Jesus experienced all the things we go through -- hunger, thirst, weariness, injustice, depression, temptation, persecution. He didn't relish them any more than we do, but He can empathize with our weaknesses and intercede for us (Hebrews 4:15).
