THE CROSS OF JESUS  originals            tom pope 1977

I RECORDED THIS ALBUM IN ONE SITTING IN 1976.  I WROTE SOME OF THE SONGS WHILE RECORDING ON A THEN MOST PROFESSIONAL TAPE DECK MADE BY TEAC, CORP.  I ALSO USED AN EM-150 YAMAHA MIXER.  BACK IN THIS DAY CHRISTIAN CONTEMPORARY MUSIC WAS FORBIDDEN TO HAVE A BEAT, SO THERE WERE NO DRUM MACHINE ADDED.  I WAS STILL REDICULED FOR A FEW UP BEAT SONGS.  THIS TAPE WAS MADE TO HONOR MY LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST, NOT MANKIND OR THE CHURCHES EXPECTATIONS OF WHAT THEY THINK CHRISTIAN MUSIC SHOULD BE. LATER, AMONG OTHER ARTIST, MY SONGS BECAME MORE UPBEAT.   I BELIEVE PRAISE AND WORSHIP MUSIC IS TO SHOW LOVE AND REFERENCE TO OUR SAVIOR, NOT TO PLEASE MEN, BUT TO PLEASE HIM, WHO HAS GIVEN US ALL THINGS AND ESPECIALLY ALL THIINGS GIVEN, THROUGH CHRIST JESUS WHO WAS BORN OF A VIRGIN BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, WAS GOD IN THE FLESH. (YES GOD WAS ONE OF US) DWELT AMONG US TO SHOW US HOW WE SHOULD LIVE, ENDURED THE CROSS FOR THE PROPIATION AND FORGIVENESS OF OUR SIN, MAKING US HOLY AND PURE BEFORE A JUST AND HOLY GOD.  AND ROSE AGAIN FROM THE DEAD, THAT IN OUR END, WE MAY RISE WITH HIM IN ETERNAL GLORY.    TOM POPE (PAPATOM)
