Synopsis

Album Description
This project reflects - literally - the heart of a man. A man who knows what its like to be down...hes been there...alcohol, drugs, sexual perversion...the whole trip! A man who knpws what its like to win - hes been there - sold millions of records, national concert tours, big-money awards...and to lose...sunstance overdoses, sanitariums, D.T.s, bankruptcy and multiple divorces. A man doesnt just walk away from all that unscarred. And Gary S. Paxton didnt! But, what God has done for and to Gary is nothing short of incredible...and the whole story is right here...in his songs. A word from Gary S. Paxton: Dearest brothers and sisters of earth who truely seek the truth. This album is not designed to bless most Christians although I pray that it does. It was put together in a different way to provoke thought and guide baby Christians. I admit-and we quite understand that this is a groping departure from currently acceptable contemporary Christian radio programming. I already know that the lyrics and musical sounds will, undoubtedly, offend many traditional Christians. I feel bad about that, but do not apologize for being honest in those areas. Time - at least, mine - is short enough and the young and totally lost far outnumber the saved. Watered down, social diluted, rationalized by intellect, group denied, cheap grace, not half trying Christian living is not what Gods most holy and totally clear Word demands. However, the life and death matters that deal with whether or not we are truely Gods property and are in Christ and belong to Him - or we are Satans property and belong to him are very spelled-out and easy to agree upon. Some will misinterpret my attempt to use a tongue and cheek approach, specialized musical arrangements, concepts, sound and lyric paraphrases as a mockery of Gods laws and words. The Holy Spirit has pointed out to me (and to other new generation non-compromisers) that Jesus would not go to most churches in the world today if He was physically here. According to the Bible He didnt then, so why would He now. I offer my songs in this project for you to analyze, critisize, denounce them and/or rip them apart. I beg you to look far beyond my feeble ability to perform them into the serioius matters they deal with. Search your most inner heart as to where you standon these eternally consequential issues, and ask God to witness your conclusions and ask Jesus to o.k. are deny those conclusions based on the intenty of your heart during your search and evaluation of those conclusions. Gos has one way of doing business. You can pay Him now or pay Him later. If I had listened to God thity years ago, I would have saved myself years of agony past and years of agony yet to come( because of the ravages of sin, abuse, indulgence and excess.) Thank God I understand that the agonies yet to come are my fault and, even then, Gods kindness will give me the strench to endure and triumph. Praise God. Such a deal! This is what, I believe, the Holy Spirit directed me to tell you. I offer these songs and performances in Christian love, meaning to hurt no one but definitely ready to risk offending you to get your attention. Perhaps if I arouse you enough, youll go to Gods precious Word to try to prove me wrong. If this project does nothing else but that, it will be worth our effots and I will humbley thank God for allowing it to be used for that purpose.Searching His Word will always help all of us. Who knows, maybe youll write me a letter and Ill learn some Truth from you. If youll try me, I ll try you. Thank you for listening, searching for truth, drawing closer to God and being you. I remain, yours in Christ and STILL UNDER CONSTUCTION by God. -Gary S. Paxton
