Synopsis of Each Song on Apoplectic
Sat., Nov. 15. 2014 9:23am EST

Here's a synopsis for each song on our 25th CD, Apoplectic:

1. Come for Some
The name of the group who performed the song we spoofed here sounds like a Bible verse: Seven Mary Three. But this parody comes from Proverbs 8-9, a passage which personifies wisdom and folly as women who stand in stark contrast to each other -- one seeking to save and the other seeking to destroy.

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.

5. Better Than Exorcism
In Matthew 12:43-45, Jesus says that when an evil spirit is driven out of a man, it comes back later. If its previous home is still empty, the demon brings seven others who are even worse. That's why having Christ dwell in your heart through faith (Ephesians 3:17, 2 Corinthians 13:5) is better than exorcism.

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.

7. Bathwater
The Apostle Peter said that in the last days people would mock Christ's seemingly belated return, but that the reason for the delay was God's desire for as many people to be saved as possible (2 Peter 3:3-9). Someday, however, Christ will return. And the bathwater may already be circling the drain.

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).

10. Comeback
Christianity teaches that a man must be born again. Some other religions teach that a man must be born again and again and again -- a continual repetitive cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. But the Bible is opposed to reincarnation, stating that "people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment" (Hebrews 9:27).

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).

12. Matching Punches
The Apostle Paul told his disciple Timothy that "everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted" (2 Timothy 3:12). That's still true today. Some will say we are too young, too old, too extreme, too narrow. And yet, despite all this, we are filled with a radical faith.

13. Under the Breath
The Gospel is free so you gotta give it away now. It's good news, although many don't receive it as such because it implies that they're not good enough to make it to Heaven on their own. But friends don't let friends drive themselves to the other side; they'll just wind up lost. We did a primitive version of this song back in 1995, by the way.
