Monday Morning Musical Musings

REZ Band  - Gameroom (1984)

The lyrics below describe in very vivid detail a part of my time as a 'troubled teenager'.
Push that button, squeeze that coin
Finger sweating, see the numbers climb
Graphic action, flashing screen
But who is the pilot, and what does it mean

My friends and my foes
My thrills and my woes
They live on
In memory cells, in fantasy wells
We press on and on and on
I am king, king of the gameroom
Here I'm lord, chairman of the board
I am king, king of the gameroom

I got nothing at home
I'm no one at school
The jocks and the rockers
They think I'm a fool
But this is my kingdom
And here I'm the man
No one can touch me
And I can command

So push that button, squeeze that coin
Fingers sweating, see the numbers climb
Graphic action, flashing screen
But who is the pilot, what does it mean

I am trapped
Prisoner in the gameroom
Deep inside I don't know what life's about
I'm a prisoner
A victim of the gameroom
God where are you
Shoe me how to get out
God where are you
Show me how to get out

Sunday Sermon: A Biblical Defense of the Resurrection of Christ by Voddie Baucham

A Biblical Defense of the Resurrection of Christ - sermonaudio.com stream here.

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is a Cardinal doctrine of the Christian faith. According the Paul's argument in 1 Corinthians 15, those who deny the resurrection have denied Christianity. There is no Christianity without the resurrection. Paul offers three arguments; the argument from authority, the argument from evidence, and the argument from logic, to refute those who deny the resurrection while attempting to embrace Christianity.

Monday Morning Musical Musings

While not fond of Keeping Stock's Christian music, we (me, myself and I) do enjoy music in its various forms. While digging through some old piano music stored in a box in a dark corner far away... I found this little gem called The Coloring Song - by Petra.


Red is the color of the blood that flowed


Down the face of Someone Who loved us so

He's the perfect man, He's the Lord's own son,

He's the Lamb of God, He's the only one

That can give us life, that can make us grow,

That can make the love between us flow.



Blue is the color of a heart so cold

It will not bend when the story's told

Of the love of God for a sinful race

Of the blood that flowed down Jesus face

That can give us life, that can make us grow

That can keep our hearts from growing cold.



Gold is the color of the morning sun

That shines so freely an every one

It's the sun above that keeps us warm

It's the Son of love that calms the storm

That can give us life that can make us grow,

That can turn our mornings into gold.



Brown is the color of the autumn leaves

When the winter comes to the barren trees

There is birth, there is death, there is a plan

And there's just one God, and there's just one man

That can give us life, that can make us grow

That can make our sins as white as snow



That can give us life, that can make us grow

That can turn our mornings into gold.

That can give us life, that can make us grow

That can keep our hearts from growing cold.

That can give us life, that can make us grow

That can make the love between us flow.

Preacher Profile: Paul Washer

Found here.


Paul Washer became a believer while attending the University of Texas studying to become an oil and gas lawyer. He completed his undergraduate studies and enrolled at Southwestern Theological Seminary where he received his Master of Divinity degree. Paul left the states shortly after graduation as a North American missionary to Peru.

Paul ministered as a missionary in Peru for 10 years, during which time he founded the HeartCry Missionary Society to support Peruvian Church planters. HeartCry's work now supports over 80 indigenous missionaries in 15 different countries throughout Eastern Europe, South America, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.

At the present, Paul serves as the Director of HeartCry Missionary Society. He and his wife Charo have two sons Ian and Evan, and one daughter Rowan.

Preacher Profile: Voddie Baucham

Voddie Baucham wears many hats. He is a husband, father, pastor, author, professor, conference speaker and church planter. He currently serves as Pastor of Preaching at Grace Family Baptist Church in Spring, TX. He has served as an adjunct professor at the College of Biblical Studies in Houston, TX, and Union University in Jackson, TN. He has also lectured at Southern Seminary.


Voddie makes the Bible clear and demonstrates the relevance of God’s word to everyday life. However, he does so without compromising the centrality of Christ and the gospel. Those who hear him preach find themselves both challenged and encouraged.
