Since the anniversary of the Protestant Reformation has once again come round this seems appropriate for the occasion.
And now a song despised by my children. Known as the “whiney” song in my house Chris Isaak’s Wicked Game is covered by Daughtry. And if you listen closely you can hear the howls of anguish from my children.
Written by Ellington Jordan with co credit going Billy Foster and Etta James. Etta James recorded it in 1967 and it was released in 1968. It is considered a blues and soul classic.
Here is an excellent cover by Gov’t Mule and a thank you to Wes for suggesting this.
And now covering the Gloria Jones/Soft Cell version I give you for your listening pleasure Pomplamoose singing Tainted Love.

This documentary has been on my list of must see movies for quite some time now. I was finally able to watch the movie yesterday evening.
The plot of the documentary is simple: What is the core gospel of Christianity as defined by scripture and what does the American Gospel consist of and is it the same?
Here the American Gospel is defined broadly as the word-faith ministeries such as Joel Osteen’s ministry, Benny Hinn’s ministry, and others.
The documentary looks at the teachings of Christ and the apostles as found in the Bible and compares them to what the word-faith teachers regarding healing, suffering, and money. The contrast between scripture and them is obvious and radically different than what is espoused by the word-faith teachers.
I think this is an important film that needs to shown in every church to let church goers see exactly what is being fed to thousands of people everywhere that these programs are broadcasted. Whether you are in Mumbai, Abu Dhabi, or Billings Montana you can be bombarded by these heretical teaching. And the more people know what the real Gospel is and what it does and doesn’t do the better.
So go watch this movie, invite friends over and then talk with them about the Gospel.
Been trying to come up with a song but none have stuck in my head. Come back next week.
