Supposed Satanist Changes His Tune

Our email of the week comes from Brent Anderson of Jefferson City, MO:
I had someone up to my apartment the other day I was witnessing to. The man is a supposed Satanist. I'm not sure on that story. He likes a lot of Slayer, Metallica and other kinds of music. That sounded like an ApologetiX entrance to me, I thought.
Ya see, if I ever find anyone who is into music outside of Christian music, the first band I usually introduce them to is ApologetiX, because there is always something I can find in your music that will turn them on. I heard he liked Metallica so I put on "Enter Samson."
"Hey, when do you Christians start listening to Metallica?, he asked. I said, "I don't; I only listen to Christian music. He said, "I know my Metallica, and that's James Hetfield singing from Metallica, and I know how they play their music; no one can copy their music and style."
I said, "It's Christian. It's a band called ApologetiX." And I told him about your band and what it does and explained how you turn the words into Christian words, and before he could catch his breath, I put on "Downer of a Sister," and he said, "Wow, that's amazing. They can do all of these different sounds and voices."
I put on "Smooth Grandmama," and I just kept putting on one after the other, and he was speechless. This was the same guy who wouldn't come into my apartment because it said "God bless the USA" on the door, but he stayed two hours, wanting to know where he could get a hold of these ApologetiX CDs.
I sent him some CDs. He liked them. Allen, that's his name, went so far as to even ask where I went to church, so Satan doesn't have quite the hold on him that he thinks he does maybe. I'll keep you posted.
