I've been a Christian since the age of seven, but I adopted some very unhealthy ideas and habits with regards to the practice of my faith. At the beginning of this college semester (my freshman year) about five months ago, I renounced my Christianity. I've been attending a Christian college, though (that I chose before my renunciation), and God has been gradually leading me back for a while. I ordered Theocracy after hearing some of the samples on the website and discovering that it was all done by one man. When I got home for Christmas break, it arrived. The lyrics during the last four stanzas of Serpent's Kiss and the bridge of the title song were the last pushes I needed to rediscover my faith in a new way. Thank you so much, Matt, for helping me find what I've been looking for. Your music has been a true blessing to me, and you can be certain that you have one more devoted fan for as long as you continue writing music.
