Quiet Riot "Metal Health" - Parody, "Jesus Said"

80s Christain Metal Blessings!

I will never forget seeing Quiet Riot live in Market Square Arena in Indianapolis, IN in 1983 on the Metal Health Tour. They were an amazing three-piece band! I remember Rudy Sarzo laying his bass on the stage and playing it "piano-style"...  I remember Carlos Cavazo's blistering solos... I remeber Frankie Banali's "over-the-top-rock-n-roll-attitude" & drum solo.  And of course, Kevin Dubrow had that huge personality that was next to impossible to ignore!

It was a pure honor to parody this song. My goal was to pay tribute to the musicians who played a big role in inspiring me to become a musician---and also to redeem the message in a way that would exalt and honor my Lord, Jesus Christ.

Can We Trust The Bible? Part 2 "Copies"

This is part two of a series of videos answering the question, "Can We Trust The Bible?"  In part one we answered the first of six questions that scholars ask about ancient texts, "Is it based on eye-witnesses?"  In part two we'll tackle the next questions scholars focus on, "Are The Copies Accurate?"  I believe this teaching will totally Rock You Up for Jesus!

The Power of FREEWILL: "Every Tub Stands on its OWN BOTTOM!"

I remember when I was young in Christ--I had what I called a "Jesus Complex"... I thought I had to save all of my friends and family, etc.  Yes, I know how rediculous that sounds... but it was very real to me.  Years of walking with Jesus have grown me up in that area a lot... my passion for everyone to know Christ as Savir is JUST as robust as ever... but today I understand that what my Grandma taught me when I was a kid is so true, "Every tub stands on it's own bottom."  I.e.  When Jesus returns--and we all stand before him... I can't stand there for you---or anyone else.  I am responsible for me.  Each of us is responsible for our own choices.

When Jesus said ".. that whosoever believes in Him will not perish...( (John 3:16) He was saying, "It's a choice..." Everyone is invited to the party!  God wants us all to be part of the family... but He's not going to FORCE anyone to believe---that defeats the whole purpose.  Nobody wants a person to "love" them because they're FORCED to.. that's not real love.

God created us with FREE WILL.  Heaven will be filled with people who CHOSE to believe in Christ as Savior; those who chose to trust, love, and follow Him as Lord!  That's what this video is all about!  I hope it totally Rocks You Up!

Say What You Will (Christian Metal Parody)

God loved the world so much that he send His Son Jesus to be our Savior.  Jesus emptied himself of heavenly glory (Phil. 2:7) ... was born... walk in the flesh among us and endured the worst, most torturous death imaginable for my sin and yours!

Jesus himself said it this way, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)

My Christian Parody of this classice 80s Metal song by FASTWAY is all about the phrase, "...whoever believes in him..." implied in that phrase is the idea of FREE WILL.  God, as Billy Graham says, "is a gentleman."  He will never force anyone to love Him that doesn't want to.  So Jesus cam and laid his life down for all who will CHOOSE to accept Him as Savior and Lord.

This song talks all about an amazing gift God gave us--called FREE WILL.  I hope you enjoy the song and that it encourages and challenges you to be part of the "whoever" that choose to follow Christ!

Oh ya, and if you do enjoy the song--remember to subscribe to my YouTube Channel--I relase a brand-new 80s Christian Metal video every Friday to Rock You Up!

How Jesus Totally Defeated The Devil!

Hey fellow Jesus loving Metal Head friends---be encouraged... know this... If you are in Christ--the Devil has ZERO power over your life.  In Genesis 3 we read about the FIRST SIN... Adan and Eve disobey God and eat the forbidden fruit.  Immediately following---we read the God confronts them and pronounces the "curse" that would befall the world as a result of sin.  Then God turns to the Devil in 3:15 and says, "And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring[a] and hers; he will crush[b] your head, and you will strike his heel.”

This verse is called the PROTO EVANGELUM (Latin for "first gospel") by scholars.  This is the first announcement by God that ONE would come (via Eve's descendants) who would CRUSH THE HEAD (Destory the power) of the Devil!

THAT is what this video is all about---and this is also what my 80s Christian Metal Parody of Ozzy Osbourne's, "CRAZY TRAIN" -- which I call, "The Dragon Is Slain"... is all about!
