  1. I saw Keith Green several times in concert (including his very first concert as a Christian – at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa). I, like many from that era, really enjoyed his music. It was a concert of his that I first visited Austin, TX – where I’ve now been living for the past 24 years!

    Towards the end, however, he began to embrace the Pelagianism of Charles Finney. I didn’t have a category for that back then (I was raised Southern Baptist, y’all!), but somehow I knew it was off. This coming July 28th will be the 40th anniversary of his death.

    Although I enjoy this take on the Easter Song, I’m a sucker for the original by The Second Chapter of Acts. Give it a listen and see what you think!


  2. Amen. Thank you!!! Hallelujah.
