"Gatekeeper" - the Pilgrimsprog Song of the Week

"Gatekeeper" is the Pilgrimsprog Song of the Week.

Gatekeeper is from the epic first Pilgrimsprog album, and tells the story of Christian speaking with the Gatekeeper at the Wicket Gate. This song is multiple time signatures - 6/4, 5/4, and the chorus is 4/4. The lead guitar solo was especially difficult for me to play at the time.

"Scandal" - the Pilgrimsprog Song of the Week

"Scandal" from the Pilgrimsprog "Do You Have Thanatophobia?" album

In early 2010, I read D.A. Carson's book Scandalous: The Cross and Resurrection of Jesus.
1 Corinthians 15:23 - 23 says -
but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles.
That word for "stumbling block" in the Greek is "skandalon" which is the same word where we get "scandal".
The message of the cross is that God sent His Son (Matthew 21:37) Jesus, fully God in the flesh, to die at the hands of men. God dying at the hand of His creation?
It is disruptive. It is scandalous! You can't sit on the sidelines with this message. It demands a response.

"Now you have heard it, you must decide, what will you do with this One who's called Christ?"
