Old news for Disciple, but still GREAT!

Posted by Iszi on February 22, 2007

So, I was going to the Disciple website to look up information on tickets to their Scars Remain tour and saw a couple great bits of news I wanted to

Scars Remain Tour / Game On on CBS
2007-02-05 17:17:18

We are two weeks in to the Scars Remain tour and the shows have been amazing. Thanks so much to everyone who has come out to the tour so far. Family Force 5 just joined us last night in Minneapolis and we look forward to having them with us for the rest of the tour. Fireflight and Decyfer Down have been a blast to work with, we have truly enjoyed their company. Joey has been making video tour journals of the last couple of weeks so be sure and check them out at myspace.com/disciplerocks. They should also be up on the media section of this website very soon. Check out the rest of the Scars Remain tour dates on the Tour section. ‘Game On’ was featured on a commercial for the CBS show Criminal Minds. It was played after the Super Bowl episode and will replay a number of times over the next couple of days. Go to CBS.com to watch the trailer for this Wednesday’s episode.

Game On!

This is pretty cool! Yesterday, we officially locked in a deal to have the theme song for WWE’s next pay-per view event. WWE Cyber Sunday will be live on pay-per-view on November 5, 8 p.m. and will be in Cincinatti, OH. The song “Game On” from our new album Scars Remain will be played 5 times during this pay-per view event, and will be known as the theme song throughout the evening. Last night night on WWE RAW, on the USA Network, they gave a promo of “Game On” being the theme song and showed the album artwork and the release date while playing the song for about 60 seconds. This is by far the best promotion we have ever had! Last night aired in front over a million people. The WWE is not known for being a “Christian” tv show, and that is why this is such an awesome opportunity to be able to get our music in front of so many people. Our team is working very hard with this song and they have also been able to get “Game On” to air on ESPN’s NFL Live on Nov 1 and 2 during the plays of the month. It will also be heard during Fox Sport’s The Best D— Sports Show, the NFL Network’s Total Access show, and Speed TV’s Speed Report.

Of particular excitement to me, are the following excerpts:

“‘Game On’ was featured on a commercial for the CBS show Criminal Minds. It was played after the Super Bowl episode and will replay a number of times over the next couple of days…”

“WWE Cyber Sunday will be live on pay-per-view on November 5, 8 p.m. and will be in Cincinatti, OH. The song “Game On” from our new album Scars Remain will be played 5 times during this pay-per view event, and will be known as the theme song throughout the evening.”

And the real kicker, which I love…

“The WWE is not known for being a “Christian” tv show, and that is why this is such an awesome opportunity to be able to get our music in front of so many people.”

It’s amazing what God can do with our music when we put away the misconceptions that Christianity has brainwashed into us nof what “Godly music” should sound like. Rock on Disciple, and praise the Lord!

Food for Thought

Posted by Iszi on December 19, 2006

Something interesting that has crossed my mind today, and is now the source of one of the lesser (albeit probably most important) quandaries that currently plagues my consciousness:

Christianity professes that there is one God who is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. Christianity says that it is our choice to follow Him or not to follow Him. To not follow Him is operating outside of His will, and walking in sin.

All of this, I have been taught and lead to believe and accept through all of my life. Now, here’s the killer:

Given the existence of an omniscient and omnipotent being in the universe (be it God or otherwise) how can we be sure that any choice we make is truly our own? How can we be sure that any thought we have comes from our own head?

So, first we are asked to choose to believe that there is a God who has created, and can control the entire universe. But to choose to believe that, we also have to believe it possible that the choice was never really ours to make in the first place.

Yes, the truth is the same whether we believe it or not, but the question remains whether our belief or disbelief is truly an option? Even as I write this, I cannot be sure – believing in an all-knowing, all-powerful God – that these words are actually of my own composure.

In the end of course, it all comes down to faith. But faith rests upon belief, and when one’s belief is shaken like this, where does their faith have to stand?
