Propaganda About God’s Purpose in Our Past

Propaganda About God’s Purpose in Our Past

Sometimes it’s hard to sort out our lives before Christ. It all feels so bleak, so dark, so destructive, so wasted. Some of us have a hard time finding anything good, anything worth remembering in the stories of our old selves.

In his new single “Crimson Cord,” Propaganda pulls on the scarlet thread of God’s love in the past of the believer. In short, God had a purpose in our past. He was using every pain to point us to life in him, and the emptiness of sin to save us from misplaced joy.

We recently sat down with Propaganda to talk about the new project. In two minutes, he explains the heart and idea behind “Crimson Cord.”
