Music Is As Music Does

Some people think of ApologetiX as little more than a cover band, using parodies as an excuse to play "the devil's music." Well, you can't judge a book by its cover, but you can judge our "covers" by the Book.

Jesus said, "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment" (John 7:24) and "Each tree is recognized by its own fruit" (Luke 6:44).

We have almost a quarter-century of fruit by which to judge this ministry - countless cases of God using our parodies to "reach the lost and teach the rest." Souls saved. Hearts encouraged. Minds enlightened.

The same God who created mankind also created music. People become sinful by what they say and do. Songs become sinful by what they say (lyrics) and do (the feelings/actions they stir up), too.

But God can redeem people and make them new creations (2 Corinthians 5:17), and He can do the same with songs.

When God changes a person, they may look the same, but their heart is changed. When God changes a song, it may sound the same, but its heart is changed, too.

You should be able tell a Christian by his words and actions. The same criteria should apply to Christian music. To paraphrase Forrest Gump, "Music is as music does" -- so open this box of chocolates and see what you get.
