Tuesday Throwback Tune -Cheesy Variety

Some of you are aware that Ray Boltz, who recorded many, many hit songs back in the day, was perhaps the first artist who claimed to be Christian to “come out” as a homosexual (and left his wife and children). Read about it here.

I met and spoke with him a few times when I was on Family Life Network/Ministry staff. I was…and am…stunned by his surrender to homosexuality.

But what to do with his songs/videos?

Obviously (I hope) I do not endorse his lifestyle. Homosexual behavior is sin (as is premarital sex, extramarital sex, etc). Oh…and gluttony…and gossip…

But I still read the Psalms; and David was an adulterer and murderer (yes, and, praise God; a repentant one…an avenue that is still open to Boltz).

So with that caveat I urge you to get a slice of bread…because this is pretty cheesy…but I love the song and I think the possibility is more a probability that some American Christians will have the opportunity for martyrdom…as happens all over the world now.

So here is “I Pledge Allegiance to the Lamb”:

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
