I have been looking forward to the new comedy TV series starring Billy Ray Cyrus as I have always kinda been a fan of his. Naturally I was excited about the new CMT Series, “Still The King”, as I have also been a life long Elvis fan. So here I am waiting for the series to be completed so that I can sit down and enjoy viewing what I presume can only be an OK comedy with an Elvis feel to it, with Billy Ray Cyrus doing the honors as the lead actor. However I have been reading press releases and watching promo reels of the show on YouTube, and somehow its seems to me as though the producers have taken the liberty of using Jesus as a co-actor and making fun of Christianity. Why that would be funny or even necessary only they will know.
I am now concerned about wanting to view the show, for I am not comfortable with a actor disguised as Jesus riding upfront with Billy Ray in his convertible. To me that can in no way be something to laugh about, no matter how funny the script is written. I can now only come to one conclusion that “Still The King” is yet another blasphemous production contributing to the destruction of the Christian way of life.
Billy Ray Cyrus has this to say as Quoted From “Nashville Scene”: Cyrus later describes the series to the Scene as a “modern-day farce set somewhere between Elvis and Jesus. “He isn’t kidding: The first episode features a dream sequence in which both Elvis Presley and Jesus Christ make appearances — the latter is played by Hootie himself, Darius Rucker.
The world is already in such a mess, that I am sure most Country and Christian fans will just look the other way an enjoy the series anyway after all every new series out of Hollywood uses Jesus’s name as a swear word, sometimes almost continuously with very little, if any resistance from Christians. It Must be easier for Hollywood actors to sell their Souls than to say NO to a producer or Director these days.
I will give this series a miss even though I was so looking forward to it, this I will do for my own personal well being.

Alan played more than 20 of his favorite tunes for the intimate crowd, often engaging with the fans and telling many of the stories behind the songs he had written, including “Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow,” “Wanted,” “Here in the Real World,” “Don’t Rock the Jukebox” and more.
Alan kicked off the performance with “Home,” a song he wrote for his mother that appeared on his 1990 debut studio album, Here in the Real World.
“I moved to Nashville in 1985—my wife, Denise, and I—to get into the music business,” said Alan prior to playing “Home.” “It was the first time I had moved away from Georgia, I was homesick, didn’t know anybody, trying to get into the music business. Denise was a flight attendant, gone all the time. The first Mother’s Day came up after I had moved away from home. I was homesick and I wrote this song [“Home”] for my mama. It was just a true story about her and my daddy starting out as young kids . . . when they got married, they lived in a 12 by 12 toolshed, and that’s where they started their lives. The started adding on to that toolshed and it became their home. That’s where I was raised and grew up, until I moved to Nashville, pretty much. My mama’s 86 and she still lives there in that house.”
During the song, Alan was overcome with emotion. It was a touching moment that you can watch in the video by clicking here.

Friend are an important part of our lives. Some are casual acquaintances; others close friends, still others more intimate loyal dear ones. How we appreciate those whom we characterize as faithful friends who are steadfastly you can depend on for every need, at any time. Yet, most of us have experienced the hurt that comes from friends who are unfaithful . Even members of our family may prove unfaithful.
How reassuring to know there is one who is faithful- faithful always and faithful in everything. “Know therefore that the Lord your God is God;he is the faithful God”. Deuteronomy 7:9. Because of his nature he could not be God and be unfaithful. We read in Timothy 2:13
If we are faithless, he will remain faithful for he cannot disown himself. He never changes. He never fails. He never goes back on one of his promises. God, being who he is, cannot cease to be what he is. He cannot act out of character with him self. Because he is faithful, he will be faithful in his actions.
At times we may forget his faithfulness to us. When trials and testing’s come, it may seem as if God has surely forgotten us. When friends fail us and our lives are falling apart, we may feel he has forsaken us. There seem When friends fail us and our lives are falling apart, we may feel he has forsaken us. There seem to be a few people we can trust. Many people do not keep their word. Our faith in human nature becomes shaken, and we wonder if anyone is honest. Yet there is One, the faithful God, on whom we can depend. He will never let us down. He had promised: …..
