Pilgrimsprog

Pilgrimsprog is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Scott Miller.
The first "Pilgrimsprog" album was a progressive rock concept album, originally released in 2010, that is based on John Bunyan’s classic Pilgrim’s Progress. It took four years to write and record.

With a wide range of musical textures and styles, from the synth and killer guitar intro to Dream, to the sing along Beautiful, to the evocative synth in the 10 minute epic Celestial City, Pilgrimsprog captures the story of Christian's journey from the City of Destruction to the Celestial City.

"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?"
