“AXIS OF EVIL” ESSAY II: “COME DRINK THE WRATH”

The phrase “once saved, always saved” is at the heart of one of Christianity’s oldest and deepest running controversies. It is the belief that a person’s salvation is a permanent condition. Many Christians, including Catholics, commonly deny this doctrine. Several Protestants, including Southern Baptists, embrace this belief. Still others fall in between holding to the argument that if one’s salvation experience was indeed genuine, then that genuineness will be manifested in a secure salvation. In other words, if you backslide you were never truly repentant in the first place. Though I myself am a Southern Baptist, I have challenged this doctrine on the new Babylon Mystery Orchestra CD in a very big way. I have suggested that the infamous “mark of the beast” can, and will, be forced on people against their will. That especially includes Christians. I don’t make this assertion carelessly.

EYE OF THE NEEDLE

Everyone should live on the edge once in awhile. I have been trying to make up my mind which song to put up on the internet from the new Babylon Mystery Orchestra CD “The Great Apostasy: A Conspiracy Of Satanic Christianity.”

It has really come down to a choice between two songs. Either the very heavy and very mean song, “King Of The Earth,” in which our favourite rebel angel lays claim to the entire institution we call Christianity; or “Eye Of The Needle,” an acoustimetal song about some very real people whose names were not changed to preserve their guilt. Since I have chosen to call this essay by the title of “Eye Of The Needle” you know which song is going up. Unlike most artists, I actually like for everyone to know something about where my songs come from. So lets look at these people who are the subjects (combatants?) of this song.
