The Title and Theme of Our Upcoming 53rd CD

The final artwork for our upcoming 53rd CD is slated to go to the duplicator sometime this weekend. The CD itself is already mastered and has been waiting for the past week. We want to have the CD in stock in plenty of time for Christmas gift-giving. Please pray that everything goes smoothly.
The title is That's Too Bad, and here's why:
If this CD were a vinyl record, side one would start with track #1, "Bad Foreign Girls," and side two would start with track #7, "Bad Things for a Good Time." That's two "Bad." But that's not the only reason we picked this title.
James 2:10 says, "For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it." As track #9 points out, we all sin a lot — that's too bad to get into Heaven on our own.
However, Christ came into the world to save sinners (1 Tim. 1:15), and to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God (John 1:12). Unfortunately, many refuse, like the folks in tracks #3, 5, 10, and 11. And that's too bad.
This CD ends with two football spoofs. One reimagines the story of the Good Samaritan; the other was written for a Steelers Christian men's event we played in 2015. We hope you'll take them in the humorous spirit in which they were intended. If not, you take sports more seriously than we do. And that's too bad.
