Is Jesus Still alright with you?

Written by guest contributor: Liz King of Liz Humor Comics (Thanks, Liz!!) We live in a world opposed to God, His truth, and His nature. This world twists the truth, authority, and reality of God and pressures anyone who tries to stand on the truth of God by trying to force them to bend to the culture rather than the savior.  Many make Jesus out to be this hippie, socialist who coddles the sinner rather than changing them. They fit Jesus into their ideas and ideals instead of stepping into His. Many are scared to speak about their faith, God’s truth, or His word because many fear the repe ..read more

Written by guest contributor: Liz King of Liz Humor Comics (Thanks, Liz!!) In a world with blurred lines of truth, moral compromises, voices fighting to be heard, and people forcing their truths and opinions on others, it is important that we are willing to step up and speak the truth of God. Today I got my inspiration for writing from The Newsboys’ song Step Up to the Microphone.  Many Christians today are scared to speak the truth of God because they fear repercussions from the world.  Many Christians do not believe in the truth of God’s word anymore.  They mix it with theorie ..read more

Where Is the Hope in Unthinkable Suffering?

One thing that we hang our hats on at Mixtape Theology is the idea of how we saw things 30 years ago and how we see them now. Meanings of songs evolve as we grow in our faith and theology. When I listen to The Great Adventure now, I hear it with different ears. The song influenced my life back then and was one of my gateways into CCM, yet I now understand “long-faced religion” and what trail riding on the wild blue yonder in God’s Amazing Grace is about. It is refreshing and enlightening at the same time. I recently did a podcast with Andy Chrisman from 4Him, and we discussed this idea. Andy m ..read more

The year was 1993, and I had completed my Freshman year at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN. A couple of months before the end of the year, I heard on Christian radio that my favorite CCM group, 4HIM, would be in concert at Christ Church in Nashville a day after I completed exams. And to top it off, Michael English was the opening act. “In Christ Alone” was the top song of the day, and I couldn’t wait to hear English get the crowd warmed up with some Jesus music before my go-to group hit the stage. 4HIM’s “Face the Nation” was my entry into CCM, and their third album, “Basics of ..read more

Our calendars tell us it is about that time; a new year, and a new you!  Right?  Yes, it is the time in which we all start making some changes.  The morning talk shows and social media platforms will be overflowing with ideas to help you lose weight, be more organized and balanced, and better yourself.  Get that gym membership and go longer than the first couple of weeks in January!   And, of course, everyone is also hoping that 2021 looks better than 2020.  Serenity Now!  No guarantees exist, but we are trusting in Jesus and are hopeful.  I get it.

Welcome to the Hotel California

Yes, as you see from the title of this blog, we are traveling down a dark desert highway. On this journey, you may or may not feel the cool wind in your hair. It all depends on your perception of the Eagle’s classic, “Hotel California.” And to be completely candid, I used to be fearful of this song. But now I have heard the mission bell and believe it to be genius. We all agree the song is iconic, yet I have recently discovered that the songwriting is masterful. Many may ask, “How does this song relate to 90’s CCM?” Well nothing, as far as the time period. And I know the song is not in the Chr ..read more

Ok, let's be honest right from the get-go. 2020 has not been on many people's Top 10 list of favorite years. We can divulge into all the reasons it has been challenging, from COVID, canceled sports and concerts, quarantines, masks, and no toilet paper. I would be remiss not to mention murder hornets! Serenity now! It’s crazy when you try to wrap your mind around it. The year 2020 punched many people right in the gut, and they still cannot catch their breath. We can laugh about some of it because it does start feeling like a bad joke at times. (Bad jokes and sarcasm, unfortunately, are a couple ..read more

When Nostalgia Meets Nostalgia | Take 6: The Biggest Part of Me

Recently I was perusing Spotify and listening to various songs that took me back. You know, back to the good ole days! It still blows my mind to think that 30 years before 1994 was 1964! In 1994, 1964 sounded so ancient. Serenity now! It is a fun practice, and hitting play to a song I haven’t heard in years always takes me back to those good times of mullets, synthesizers, acid-washed jeans, and WWJD bracelets. Those years were instrumental in my discipleship. I never want to live in the past and wear people out with my old man “back in my day” statements, yet it awakens something in me. Nosta ..read more

The Jesus Music

Hippie rocker turned Christian rock pioneer Larry Norman famously sang, “Why should the devil have all the good music?” The answer is, he shouldn’t, and he doesn’t! As I continue to reflect on The Jesus Music, a documentary on the roots, rise, and impact of CCM, my brain hasn’t shut down. I struggled to get to sleep after watching it the first time (Yes, I have already gone again!) as I worshipped, prayed, and thought of the power of music and how it impacted my life. Indeed, music breaks down barriers and brings people together. It moves people. To be sure, it can do all of this in three and ..read more

Kanye, MJ, Oprah, and You

Like the rest of the world, I have been a keen observer in Kanye West’s latest proclamation of faith, particularly as he released his first Christian Album, Jesus is King.  His music has never been my cup of tea, but with newfound faith, he has my attention.  Many are singing his praises, while others are taking the “wait and see” approach.  I know we serve a great God who can save Kanye as much as he can save any of us. With that approach I pray for fruit from Kanye’s latest album, and pray for his growth and sanctification as he now has a platform that very few in the world co ..read more
