I actually make most of the posters that are on the rocketown website. Sometimes i have to post the posters that the promoters give us and they can cross the line sometime...but for the majority of the other posters....i can tell you there is no hidden satanic message i am putting in them. In fact most have a spiritual reason...and some are just silly. IAfter looking at that one person's blog about the posters, they mentioned one poster i did that was for fun...it had all of these old 80's icons like David Hasselhoff, Chuck Norris and then i threw MWS in there....it was hilarious, but absolutely no homosexual overtones...if the viewer felt that then they were looking very hard at that for something. I could give examples of other posters but i won't at the moment. And as for Michael W. Smith...well.......he had the vision....he is on the board...but Rocketown is a self sufficient organization....so the judgement many of you are voicing should be put on us and not him. We have to make many hard decisions and have made mistakes along the way...but we try to listen to the Spirit for guidance. Sometimes that means having a band play there that we think would be over the edge cause God wants them there for a reason... We are here for bands, as well as teens. That is we invite all parents to look into what there children are listening to. We are a venue that is rented out by promoters much of the time. Does the evil one get his hands in our business much of the time....of course...he tries to mess up what God is doing. We rely on people's prayer and support. It is a hard line to walk. But it is a hard one for all believers. The thing i heard God tell me long ago as "Are you willing to not look bold to the church if it means you are following my direction." i think we all need to hear and think of that. Walk by His Spirit. Sometimes the outcome is a thing we can't explain but if it is of Him there will bear fruit. And i do experience the fruit, because I see it here.Now taking all this into account, consider the runic satanic symbolism that MWS' album covers have displayed for years such as this...

Notice that not only does Michael W. Smith use the runic alphabet on the front of his album "The Big Picture" but on the back his name is also written backwards. Satanist Alieser Crowley, the guru of modern satanism and mentor to many satanist musicians, gave the following instructions to his followers in his book, Magick In Theory and Practice. "The satanist should train himself to think backwards" including "let him learn to write backwards". For more examples of runic symbolism on other MWS albums go here http://themurkynews.blogspot.com/2008/03/wolves-in-sheeps-clothing-research.html and it is about half way down the page. Those findings are also what led me to research Rocketown as I was trying to find counter evidence to his, however all that I did was corroborate his findings. If this information grabs you I would suggest reading that website starting from the introduction page.
Why do I spend the time on this? Why do I believe it is utterly important? Well, THE BIBLE warns us many times of the end times and of the false prophets who will try and lead us "out to the desert" and "in the inner rooms" and Jesus warns us specifically "DO NOT GO" (Matthew 24:26-28). My hope is that you will remember this information and thus save yourselves and your families.
