A Second Powerful Testimony from Tennessee
Thu., Aug. 3. 2023 8:20pm EDT

In last week's newsletter, we shared a testimony from J.B. in Martin TN. We know that a number of fans really appreciated it. In case you missed it, here's a link:

J.B. had said, "That testimony is only one of hundreds where your music has opened a door for me to share the Gospel." This week he sent another to us that we think will inspire ApX fans. He gave us permission to share it with you. Here's what he said:

I won't bombarded you with these, I promise. But here is another occurrence of the use of ApologetiX music.

I had a crew member She had long blond dreadlocks, so to protect her privacy that's how I will refer to her. Dreadlocks was a beautiful young lady who rode a big Harley Davidson. She wore her biker gear a lot to work. She carried herself in a defensive mode pretty much at all times.

As I did most of the time, I played my music which consisted of ApologetiX, Rob Rock, some Five Iron Frenzy, and Rez band. She had been working with us for a couple weeks. And I noticed she started moving her work area a little closer to the radio speaker. You could tell she was really listening to the words of the music and not just the music it self.

She started asking about the ApologetiX songs. She said at first she thought she was listening to the original groups. But then it hit her that she was listening to Gospel parodies. Over the next few weeks, four songs got to her.

She asked the right questions. She said she was in court appointed celebrate recovery meetings. But that wasn't reaching or helping her, she just wasn't getting any relief. She wanted to be free of drugs and guilt. The four songs that piqued her interest were:

1. "Brash, Impulsive"
2. "You're Mad at What?"
3. "You've Got a Text"
4. Killing My Suffering with His Son"

At break, I got the whole crew together and started doing a mini ten-minute Bible study with these four songs (for those who wanted to participate). Over the next few weeks, Dreadlocks started not being so defensive. She was learning that Christ suffered for addictions, and her failures, and when she was being abused as a teen. He knew. Jesus had been calling her.

She sought drugs to numb her. But He was the one who could deliver her. One day she erased her walkman with all the death-metal music she had and asked if I could give her a few songs that I had. I had two CDs of ApologetiX I gave her and a Theocracy CD. We got her a Bible, and she started reading the Gospels. Her whole attitude and outlook started to change.

She was later transferred to another division where my son worked. She told my son, who didn't tell her I was his dad, that God used the CDs and mini Bible studies and it saved her life. She was set free from her demons. She was following Jesus and telling others.

I know it is the Holy Spirit who draws us to Christ, and I thank Jesus for using the parodies to catch her attention so that she could look and see Jesus was there all along. "Coming to pay for my failures, saving my life with His Word, killing my suffering with His Son" reached her heart

Once again we stand in awe of God's goodness, and we are humbled that He allowed our parodies to play a part in what He did in that woman's life. Praise the Lord!
