They Sold Their Souls to Rock and Roll















My whole life prior to 1992 (Eph. 2:2-3) was given solely over wholly to the music industry. From playing the music to that of absolutely following all aspects of the industry and culture as some of you who knew me well know. As Almighty God began to get a hold of me and started to redirect me by His Word, I then began to see the evils and vices of the whole music culture and life style.

I remember saying to myself - the last day that I played in the last phase of "Silent Desire" (1986-1992) - I thought to myself... What are you doing? Listen to the lyrics. What are they saying? Look what the consequences of this life style and what it is doing to you and those who you care greatly about. I knew I had to leave it and I knew that Almighty God could not be honored in any way or blessed by it in my life by practicing such godlessness.

Look what the consequences of this life style and what it is doing to you and those who you care greatly about.

Up to this point in my young age I had lived a full life. After three years of challenging and wrestling with Almighty God and His Word; and trying to justify everything in my manner of living, at the age of twenty four I finally surrendered to Him and began to follow Christ as my Lord and Savior - who is the Savior of the whole World (John 3:16.17). My final conclusion at that time was Lord you were absolutely right! I need You and my actions were horrifically wrong. His grace and mercy showed and taught me how wrong I was and that God's long suffering to me lead me to repentance and ETERNAL life (2 Peter 3:9)! That was in the fall of October of 1992. Since then I have been truly blessed by Almighty God. He has blessed me and has filled my soul with His Wonderful ETERNAL Person and with His plan and future for my life. The music and all of its party lifestyle could never fill the ETERNAL void that possessed me. Only Almighty God can satisfy the famished soul of man (John 6).

In the end, I knew I would have to give an account to Almighty God and I would be doomed if I continued in my rebellion and sin against Him (Heb 9:27).

My final conclusion at that time was Lord you were absolutely right! I need You and my actions were horrifically wrong.

Before you label me a square or a nut, I would like to challenge you to objectively watch this brief series of documentaries on the music industry and its culture. On this web site you will see for yourself that there is something more sinister behind the whole godless music industry and life style then meets the eye (Eph 6:12). In the end, ask yourself this simple question. Is this what you want to truly serve?

Be brave, be objective and have courage to face the realities at hand. Then you will see what it is all about.

The Lord Jesus stated: You shall know the truth and the truth will set you free (John 8:32).

And if the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed (John 8:36).

Put your faith and trust in Almighty God! He alone can satisfy. He alone can deliver! Put your trust in Him today. You will never be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
