We love getting emails of encouragement (who doesn't?), because they inspire us to keep doing what we're doing and enable us to show the rest of you ApX fans that you're not the only ones out there. :) Here are 10 more we received recently from 10 different states:
It's awesome what you all do with music. I have played your music through the years to people who would never listen to Christian music, and it's amazing how many positive reactions I get back and how many now listen to Christian music. My wife is one of the people who changed her music choice because of your music.Editor's Note: Mike and Chris Sackett have now been married for 34 years!
I love how you guys include Bible references in many of your songs! The songbook is a really big hit with me, especially. I think you guys do a great job defending the faith (1 Peter 3:15) with your music, which is an area the Lord has really gifted you with. Keep up the great work!
I am continually amazed at how anointed you are for this ministry. I am also continually praying for you often. I pray for you, freedom, and uplift. Also praying for your family, and all your colleagues' families.

The violinist on the video from the anniversary concert – so good, as were the others – Todd and Chris and TNT! Also the flute solo on "Broke a Loaf of Bread" – unbelievable. Conspiracy No. 56, what a great disc, with great variety! You continue to produce such quality music, and I do not know how you make yourself sound like so many different lead singers!
Thank you so much for your downloads each month; I so appreciate your ministry and buy each new CD you produce (the extra one I pass on to a friend who appreciates you just as much as I) Love your ministry, pray GOD'S unparalleled provision for you always.
I'm in the process of going through my new ApologetiX USB treasure chest. I love "Jewish Farm." And "Isaiah 55" is going on my playlist ASAP. Sandwich Platter is excellent. Period. Going through the ApologetiX catalog is giving me a chance to hear some older "new" songs and some bona fide, shiny, real-life, recent songs I haven't heard yet. Win/Win! :-) You guys have come so far. It must be a joy to be able to play any song, and with such polish.
I really love the lines you put into your lyrics that make me laugh, like "or am I going out on a limb" ("Hey Zaccheus") "when it's shoveled in your face" ("Blurry"), and "eat the moss on your window sill" ("Tasty Plants"). There's only one other performer that makes me laugh with certain lines in his songs, but he's rather green at what he does and the only line I can think of right now is "like butter on a bald monkey."

Just downloaded "Back Talk." It is soooo good! Great, great job on everyone's part. The lyrics are funny, simple, and profound all at the same time. You did an outstanding job on the vocals as did the guys with the instrumentals. And the cover! Dave is very talented and did a tremendous job. I hope all the AplogetiX fans out there will donate generously to get this one. It is well worth it. Thanks for another wonderful blessing!
I have always liked your song "Amos," at least partially, I am sure, because I like the song it was based on. But also because you guys did a great job redoing it So I am on my own read-the-Bible-in-a-year journey and just finished reading the book of Amos. After I read it, I pulled up your song, and wow! You guys really nailed it! Your songs really help reinforce what is in the Bible and make it come alive. Keep doing what you guys have been doing.

We were introduced to you guys while sitting in the ICU, praying our son Jake would recover from a very bad motorcycle accident in 2004. The church youth group gave us Jesus Christ Morningstar. It's 2019, I am happy to say that Jake and ApologetiX are still going strong! What an AWESOME GOD we have! The KISS parody is another blast from the past and also very fitting; you see, I met Christine when she was sixteen!
