C. S. Lewis and The Dark Power in The Universe

"One of the things that surprised me when I first read the New Testament seriously was that it talked so much about a Dark Power in the universe - a mighty evil spirit who was held to be the Power behind death and disease, and sin. The difference is that Christianity thinks this Dark Power was created by God, and was good when he was created, and went wrong. Christianity agrees with Dualism that this universe is at war. But it does not think this is a war between independent powers. It thinks it is a civil war, a rebellion, and that we are living in a part of the universe occupied by the rebel.

Enemy occupied territory - that is what this world is. Christianity is the story of how the rightful king has landed, you might say landed in disguise, and is calling us all to take part in a great campaign of sabotage. When you go to church you are really listening in to the secret wireless from our friends: that is why the enemy is so anxious to prevent us from going. He does it by playing to our conceit and laziness and intellectual snobbery. I know someone will ask me, 'Do you really mean, at this time of day, to re-introduce our old friend the devil hoofs and horns and all?' Well, what the time of day has to do with it, I do not know. And I am not particular about the hoofs and horns. But in other respects my answer is 'Yes, I do.' I do not claim to know anything about his personal appearance. If anybody really wants to know him better I would say to that person, 'Don't worry. If you really want to, you will. Whether you'll like it when you do, is another question.' - "Mere Christianity", C.S. Lewis (1898-1963)

Christian Music Profile: Guardian

Guardian is an American Christian Metal band. The band released six studio albums, three additional albums in Spanish—and toured extensively worldwide. The band was founded in 1982 under the name Fusion, by bassist David Bach and singer Paul Cawley. They added drummer Rikk Hart and guitarist James Isham shortly after. In 1984, they recorded a six song EP called Rock In Victory. Some time later, they replaced Isham with David Caro. Caro arrived just in time for one of the first shifts in the band's trajectory. 

guardian,band,rock,christian music,1990

The band managed to strike a record deal with Enigma Records in 1985 after Eric Blair, (who worked for Stryper) pushed the Rock in Victory EP to Enigma Records President, Wesley Hein. When they found out there was a band going by the same name, they changed theirs to Gardian. They released another EP, Voyager in 1987.

Some time later, Caro left due to personal issues and was replaced with Tony Palacios. David Caro currently plays guitar at his church in Hesperia, CA. The band added the "U" to their name and in 1989 released their first album,First Watch, produced by Stryper's Oz Fox. This release featured a melodic metal sound in the same vein as Stryper or Van Halen and was followed by extensive touring through the United States and Japan. When the tour finished in 1990, Cawley and Hart left the band.

The New Guardian

Bach and Palacios asked to be freed of their Enigma contract, requesting a more Christian label. After they were released, singer Jamie Rowe and drummer Karl Ney joined the band. They started working with new producers Dino and John Elefante on their second album, finally releasing Fire and Love in 1991 under the Pakaderm label. The response to the album was overwhelming and one of the videos was included in the MTV's Headbangers Ball rotation. After touring with Stryper in 1992, the band released their third album, Miracle Mile in 1993. The album was a departure from their first two releases as the band began to integrate Rhythm and Blues elements into their music. The album quickly rose the charts, and reached the CCM Top Five.

Christian Music Profile: Iona

Iona is the name of a progressive Celtic rock band from the United Kingdom, which was formed in the late 1980s by lead vocalist Joanne Hogg and multi-instrumentalists David Fitzgerald and Dave Bainbridge. Troy Donockley joined later, playing the uilleann pipes, low whistles, and other instruments.

By the time Iona released their first self-titled album in 1990, drummer Terl Bryant, bassist Nick Beggs (formerly the bassist of Kajagoogoo), Fiona Davidson on Celtic harp, Peter Whitfield on strings, Troy Donockley on Uillean pipes and percussionist Frank Van Essen had joined the band. The first album Iona concentrated mostly on the history of the island of Iona, from which the band got its name.

Iona returned in 1992 with The Book of Kells, a concept album with several tracks based on pages from the book of the same name. Terl Bryant took over on drums and percussion for this album after the departure of Frank Van Essen. Fitzgerald left the band that year to pursue a degree in music. Beyond These Shores, the band's third album, was released in 1993 and included guest musician Robert Fripp. The album was loosely based on the legendary voyage of St. Brendan to the Americas before Christopher Columbus, but the band did not intend for it to be viewed strictly as a "concept album".

Journey into the Morn followed in 1995, a more accessible and rock-oriented album loosely based on the hymn "Be Thou My Vision", which was performed in Gaelic at the beginning of the album and again near the end. Máire Brennan, lead singer of Celtic/New Age band Clannad, was brought in to help Joanne with the Gaelic pronunciation, and she sang backup vocals.

Devotional Classic: THE OLD CROSS AND THE NEW by A. W. Tozer

This article first appeared in The Alliance Witness in 1946. It has been printed in virtually every English-speaking country in the world and has been put into tract form by various publishers. It still appears now and then in the religious press.


by A. W. Tozer 


ALL UNANNOUNCED AND MOSTLY UNDETECTED there has come in modern times a new cross into popular evangelical circles. It is like the old cross, but different: the likenesses are superficial; the differences, fundamental.

From this new cross has sprung a new philosophy of the Christian life, and from that new philosophy has come a new evangelical technique—a new type of meeting and a new kind of preaching. This new evangelism employs the same language as the old, but its content is not the same and its emphasis not as before.

The old cross would have no truck with the world. For Adam's proud flesh it meant the end of the journey. It carried into effect the sentence imposed by the law of Sinai. The new cross is not opposed to the human race; rather, it is a friendly pal and, if understood aright, it is the source of oceans of good clean fun and innocent enjoyment. It lets Adam live without interference. His life motivation is unchanged; he still lives for his own pleasure, only now he takes delight in singing choruses and watching religious movies instead of singing bawdy songs and drinking hard liquor. The accent is still on enjoyment, though the fun is now on a higher plane morally if not intellectually.

The new cross encourages a new and entirely different evangelistic approach. The evangelist does not demand abnegation of the old life before a new life can be received. He preaches not contrasts but similarities. He seeks to key into public interest by showing that Christianity makes no unpleasant demands; rather, it offers the same thing the world does, only on a higher level. Whatever the sin-mad world happens to be clamoring after at the moment is cleverly shown to be the very thing the gospel offers, only the religious product is better.

The new cross does not slay the sinner, it redirects him. It gears him into a cleaner and jollier way of living and saves his self-respect. To the self-assertive it says, "Come and assert yourself for Christ." To the egotist it says, "Come and do your boasting in the Lord." To the thrillseeker it says, "Come and enjoy the thrill of Christian fellowship." The Christian message is slanted in the direction of the current vogue in order to make it acceptable to the public.

The philosophy back of this kind of thing may be sincere but its sincerity does not save it from being false. It is false because it is blind. It misses completely the whole meaning of the cross.

The old cross is a symbol of death. It stands for the abrupt, violent end of a human being. The man in Roman times who took up his cross and started down the road had already said good-by to his friends, He was not coming back. He was going out to have it ended. The cross made no compromise, modified nothing, spared nothing; it slew all of the man, completely and for good. It did not try to keep on good terms with its victim. It struck cruel and hard, and when it had finished its work, the man was no more.

The race of Adam is under death sentence. There is no commutation and no escape. God cannot approve any of the fruits of sin, however innocent they may appear or beautiful to the eyes of men. God salvages the individual by liquidating him and then raising him again to newness of life.

That evangelism which draws friendly parallels between the ways of God and the ways of men is false to the Bible and cruel to the souls of its hearers. The faith of Christ does not parallel the world, it intersects it. In coming to Christ we do not bring our old life up onto a higher plane; we leave it at the cross. The corn of wheat must fall into the ground and die.

We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum.

God offers life, but not an improved old life. The life He offers is life out of death. It stands always on the far side of the cross. Whoever would possess it must pass under the rod. He must repudiate himself and concur in God's just sentence against him.

What does this mean to the individual, the condemned man who would find life in Christ Jesus? How can this theology be translated into life? Simply, he must repent and believe. He must forsake his sins and then go on to forsake himself. Let him cover nothing, defend nothing, excuse nothing. Let him not seek to make terms with God, but let him bow his head before the stroke of God's stern displeasure and acknowledge himself worthy to die.

Having done this let him gaze with simple trust upon the risen Saviour, and from Him will come life and rebirth and cleansing and power. The cross that ended the earthly life of Jesus now puts an end to the sinner; and the power that raised Christ from the dead now raises him to a new life along with Christ.

To any who may object to this or count it merely a narrow and private view of truth, let me say God has set His hallmark of approval upon this message from Paul's day to the present. Whether stated in these exact words or not, this has been the content of all preaching that has brought life and power to the world through the centuries. The mystics, the reformers, the revivalists have put their emphasis here, and signs and wonders and mighty operations of the Holy Ghost gave witness to God's approval.

Dare we, the heirs of such a legacy of power, tamper with the truth? Dare we with our stubby pencils erase the lines of the blueprint or alter the pattern shown us in the Mount? May God forbid. Let us preach the old cross and we will know the old power.

Within Without - Poetry Inspired By The Hymns of Faith


I come to thee
With outstretched arms
And hands lifted high.

I come to thee
O Lamb of God,
To be rid of my soul’s afflictions.

I come to thee,
O Lamb of God,
Just as I am.

Trouble and toil
Every child may know
But I run to You
To find peace and rest.
Thy promises are true,
Thy mercy endureth eternally.

I come to thee
Broken and battered
By conflicts and doubts.

O Lamb of God,
Thou has loved me
More than I deserve.

I am sinful and hopeless,
Born into iniquity.

O Lamb of God,
Change my heart,
Renew my spirit.
Make me whole again.

Within I am without You.
Without You, I’m nothing within.

O Lamb of God,
I come to thee.

If the heavens declare Your glory,
Then the stars display Your majesty
And the earth showcase the firmament of Your power.

My creator.
My redeemer.

To thee only have I to praise.
To thee only have I to thank.

For the creativity that surrounds me
And everything done to lead me back to You.

What is man that You take account of him?
Who am I to know Your love so dear?
I stand in awesome wonder
At the beauty of You.

Holy and righteous.
Perfect and just.

How great thou art.

Every Hour Here - Poetry Inspired by The Hymns of Faith


O God, merciful and mighty,
In this quiet solitude,
I discover the peace that passes understanding.

Outside is wickedness,
Around the world lies chaos
And temptations close in fast.

I need thee every hour here
And so much more
Pass the hour here.

If you didn’t love me,
All that I have would fade away.

If you do not guide me,
All that I am would cease to be.

Come quickly Lord,
Reign over me, show me thy mercy.
Teach me thy will.
Bless me now, my savior.

I will walk this world with Your words
To light my every step.

I will run to Your sanctuary
And remember the sacrifice
You made for these souls who scorn You still.

Every hour upon the hour,
I need thee every hour here.

Time means nothing
When I look into your sky.

PRAYERS & DEVOTION: Jesus, Break These Strongholds – Rachel Scott (1981-1999)

Jesus, break these strongholds.

Tear down the strings of sin.

Release me from my pride.

Rescue me from these games.

Restore me from the hurt.

Renew my heart again.

Tear down this bondage.

Destroy this burden.

Give me love, give me peace.

My life, my love, my wants.

My needs, my passion,

My strength, my faults,

My sin, my friends,

My foes, my family,

My all….

Is now Yours.

"Right Here" by Jeremy Camp


All the world is Watching
All the world does care
Even when the world weighs on my shoulder now,
These feelings I can bare
Because I know,
That you’re here,

Everywhere I go,
I know your not far away,
Your right here
Your right here, yeah (x2)

All these thoughts I’ve wasted,
All these thoughts I fear,
Even when these thoughts have faded,
I still know that you’re here,
So I can rest my hope in you

(Repeat Chorus)

Many of times that I have felt alone,
Many of times that I have the
world was crashing down upon me,
You always stood here by my side,
You were always there …..

Everywhere I go,
I know your not far away,
Your right here
Your right here, yeah (x4)

Songs of Devotion: "Creed" by Rich Mullins

CREED by Rich Mullins (1955-1997)

I believe in God the Father almighty
Maker of Heaven and Maker of Earth
And in Jesus Christ
His only begotten Son, our Lord
He was conceived by the Holy Spirit
Born of the virgin Mary
Suffered under Pontius Pilate
He was crucified and dead and buried

And I believe what I believe
Is what makes me what I am
I did not make it, no it is making me
It is the very truth of God and not
The invention of any man

I believe that He who suffered
Was crucified, buried, and dead
He descended into hell and
On the third day, rose again
He ascended into Heaven where
He sits at God's mighty right hand
I believe that He's returning to
Judge the quick and the dead
Of the sons of men


I believe it, I believe it
I believe it
I believe it, I believe it

I believe in God the Father almighty
Maker of Heaven and Maker of Earth
And in Jesus Christ His only begotten Son,
Our Lord
I believe in the Holy Spirit
One Holy Church, the communion of Saints
The forgiveness of sin
I believe in the resurrection
I believe in a life that never ends


I believe it, I believe
I believe it, I believe
I believe it, I believe it

Profile: Steve Camp - Singer, Songwriter

Steven J. Camp (born April 13, 1955) is a prominent American Dove Award-nominated contemporary Christian music artist with an adult contemporary pop sound. He was very popular in the 1980s and early 1990s, but his popularity now continues mostly in his ChristianReformed Theology. He started Audience One Ministries, and his blog covering Christian music, biblical study, reformation, and revival. writing addressing current trends and matters of Reformed Theology. He started Audience One Ministries, and his blog covering Christian music, biblical study, reformation, and revival.

He is well-known for his strong views that Christian musicians are called to make direct, uncompromising music that confronts the world with the message of the Scriptures. Following Martin Luther's 95 theses, on Reformation Day (October 31), 1998 he sent out his own 107 theses calling for a reformation in contemporary Christian music.
Born in Wheaton, Illinois, Camp was raised by Christian parents; by 5 years of age he confessed faith in Jesus. This greatly influenced his desire to serve God through his teenage years. As a young Christian, he created a close bond with legendary Christian singer/songwriter Larry Norman, who gave him advice concerning his own singing and songwriting. In addition, he met the late Keith Green, who encouraged him to make a stronger commitment to Jesus and at the same time his own ministry.

Camp attended Roosevelt University, where he majored in Music Composition and Theory under Professor Dodds, protegee to George Gershwin, and studied Business Law/Music at the College of DuPage, where his goal was to spread the gospel. Among many other college professors Steve had studied under, Camp didn't go through his academic circles for his theological or musical training. He did exactly that; hence, he received intense working knowledge of Scripture and theology, mastering the Greek language, and he has accomplished a library of historical and theological works. Camp also retains an orthodox historical Reformed theology, in the tradition of John Owen, Jeremiah Burroughs, Thomas Watson, Dr. John F. MacArthur, Dr. D.A. Carson, Dr. R.C. Sproul and the late Dr. Stephen Olford. He also began a longtime relationship with a then-unknown - Rob Frazier - in the late 1970s. Frazier, a one-time Petra member, began his tenure with Camp co-writing songs for Camp's own albums. Camp's singing career began when he played acoustic guitar and sang backups on Scott Wesley Brown's 1977 album, I'm Not Religious, I Just Love The Lord, one year before he went on his own. Compared to Frazier, he also began a longtime friendship with Brown in 1973, aged 18 at the time. Camp was reunited with Frazier on Frazier's 1992 compilation Retrospect, on which Frazier and Camp sang duet vocals for the song Why.

Featured Artist Profile: Mylon LeFevre and Broken Heart

Mylon LeFevre (born October 6, 1944 in Gulfport, Mississippi) is the former Christian rock singer of the Grammy Award-winning band Mylon and Broken Heart and a Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame member. He currently travels around the United States, ministering, teaching and singing. He frequently appears on such television networks as the Trinity Broadcasting Network and the Daystar Television Network.

In 1980, LeFevre "committed [his] life to Jesus". He got a job as a janitor at his church, Mt. Paran Church of God, in Atlanta. He started a Christian band called Mylon LeFevre and Broken Heart in 1981 with some musicians he met in a Bible study: Kenny Bentley, John Hampton, Joe Hardy, and Dean Harrington. A small offshoot gospel label from MCA Records known as Songbird released his "comeback" album Brand New Start in 1981. Over the years guitarists Scott Allen and Trent Argante would also be members, along with keyboardist Marshall Pratt.

Over the next ten years, he released ten albums and traveled over a million miles. In 1987, the group attempted to cross over to mainstream rock by rechristening itself Look Up! and releasing an album on non-Christian industry label Columbia Records. The album contained a retooled updating of "Peace Begins Within" from the We Believe album and a cover of DeGarmo and Key's "Love is All You Need" but it was not the breakthrough success the band had hoped for.

In 1987, the band received a Rock Album of The Year GMA Dove Award for Crack the Sky. That same year, they received a Grammy for Best Gospel Performance by a Duo, Group, Choir, or Chorus.

Featured Artist: David and The Giants

Christian Knight presents:
The Christian Music Experience Featured Artist:


Beginning as a rock band in Laurel, Mississippi, the Huff brothers - David, Clay, and Ray - with Jerry Parker on drums, toured the Southeast during the 1960s as David and the Giants. In 1977 they switched to a Christian rock format. They continued to sing and record together through 1999. Recording and performing together for almost 40 years, the band released 17 albums. Though the band's style has been compared to that of Mylon LeFevre and Broken Heart, their most commercially successful work came in the 1960s with a sound, augmented by The Muscle Shoals Horns, that closely resembled that of Jay & the Techniques

In 1977, the band members converted to Christianity. That same year they released their first Christian album, Song of Songs. Released without label support, it contained ballads and a mixture of pop rock. Their second album, This One's For You had a similar sound. Two years later, the band recorded Step in My Shoes. Devoid of up-tempo songs, the album was not commercially successful. For their fourth album, the band returned to a sound much closer to their musical roots. Almost Midnight, a rock album, was more successful than the first three. They continued with that sound for their fifth attempt, entitled Heaven or Hell.

Benny Hester - “Remember Me” Lyrics:

It's eight o'clock, and I'm scared as I can be,
Just thinking as I stand outside your house,
It's been ten years if it's been three,
Walk up to your door and start to knock.
It flies open in my face,
All that I can say is the only words that come into my mind...

Remember me?
I'm the one that hurt you,
Remember me?
I'm the one that left you all alone,
Remember me?
Yes, I'm the one that stole your happiness,
And there's something I've got to say now that I'm getting things right,
Something I got to ask of someone else tonight.

I've taken and taken what never belonged to me,
I'm a thief and I'm guilty,
Though I don't deserve a thing, when you come into your kingdom, Jesus, remember me.

Remember me,
Remember me.

Tonight's the night to tell you,
Oh, he has gripped your soul and brought you here,
Remember back when you and, we I hurt each other so,
So, there's something I've gotta say now that I'm getting it right,
Forgiveness I've got to ask from God himself tonight.

I've taken and taken what never belonged to me,
I'm a thief of the worst kind,
And, though I don't deserve a thing, remember me,
Lord, when you come into your kingdom, remember me.

No, I've never cried out for much mercy,
And now in this moment I've found it.

Remember me,
End this pain and suffering,
Remember me,
Forgive the past, and on this very day....

I will be with you in paradise,
I will be with you in paradise,
I will be with you in paradise,
I will be with you in paradise,
