Customer Reviews

A new inspiration through his own personal testimony

Ray Boltz, a three time Dove Award winning Contemporary Christian artist, decided in 2004 that his life needed to change as well. After 20 years of being a staple in the Christian music industry and selling over 4 million albums, Boltz told his wife and children that he was gay. Boltz captured the attention of the Contemporary Christian Music industry by garnering three Dove Awards, two gold albums, one gold video and 12 number one singles. Ray, Thank You for having the courage to publicly announce the embracement of your true orientation at great personal cost. You have given hope to countless gay, lesbian & transgendered Christians who have been made to feel that they were unworthy of God's love. We can listen to your testimony now with hearts anew, knowing that there is hope & salvation available to all of God's children, regardless of who you love!

Depressing sad album, spiraling the wrong way

This is a well made album with some catchy tunes but overall the tone is depressing and sad - not at all gay (as in happy). Its an album that, in my opinion, seems to be performed by a talented, yet sexually broken man, who let go of his Anchor, Jesus the Christ, the very One that still holds in His life if Mr. Boltz will return to Him. "American Queen" is the saddest of the cuts (I was embarrassed for you as I heard it Mr. Boltz), not to mention the very depressing "Fishing Hole". "Don't tell me who to love" seems to forget that it is God who designed us basically in one way sexually to physically love - though loving each other, even another man (in a non-sexual way) is modelled well by Jesus who loved John (and all His disciples) and David loved Jonathan (who loved David like a brother and even more than women, enough to give up being King himself, recognizing the merit and God-giftedness of David). None of these men were homosexual despite the falsehoods some lost seemingly religious souls try to foster. Mr. Boltz, you are God-gifted singer and in my opinion, you've lost your way. Your album cover is black and entitled "True", but in my opinion rings with falsehood and half-baked human platitudes that are at their core, all completely false. Its my sincere prayer that you one day realign yourself with God's aim for your life and choose to be apart of His ministry of reconciliation again. As I listened to your album, I kept wondering what you might have done with a catchy lyric "God told me who to love and I yield to Him because He first loved me" instead. The Anchor still holds Mr. Boltz, but in my opinion and as I listened to each cut of this depressing album, I believed your Ship is pointed in the wrong direction now! After so many albums, you seem NOT to be finishing well. God knows you tried you say in one song....and I have no doubt you did Sir....but to me it seems you threw in the towel and colluded with an Enemy who gave you a catchy dance song to make a few dollars on instead. Your music is powerful in capturing a morose, broken, downstrodden, lost soul....but Ray, Sir, where are you leading people? If the ship is sinking, do you really want to sing a song to them as everyone drowns, or would you rather lead them, instead, with a glorious tune about a victory that's already won for them by a God who can pull them up to glory and life eternal instead? One of the reviewers say you have given hope to them....what's it based upon....a half-baked wish, a bloodless Gospel where Jesus pats everyone on the back and tells them He loves them while they race pell-mell toward Hell? I think your album is well done and that you continue to have talent. My advice: Please stop looking for the World's pity and solace in your songs...give them Jesus, who came that we might have life...so we can truly be happy IN HIM. Before you write me off as bigot or a hater....understand this review is written by someone just like you (though frankly not as talented or as positioned) - empathetic in every single way - one of the Apostle Paul's "used to be". We are all broken in some way or another but its best to sing of Jesus who holds all our items all together, even the broken ones. Everything else is false and doesn't ring true. God bless you Mr. Boltz. I hope your next album returns to your roots. Gay party rock is not what God intended for you Sir. In my opinion, you seem to be wallowing looking for approval in tunes that seem to be mired in deep abiding worldly sadness. I would like to see you sing well and return to your heavenly roots...with an Album that gives glory to God and shares how Jesus rescues...not how the world/the enemy drowns. Choose Life Mr. Boltz! I think of you often and took some care in composing this review, listening to each song. I hope to see you in Heaven one day, knowing you finished well and recorded some songs that really rang true and honestly detailed how much God loves us, hoping we would turn to him in obedience, not go our own way, the wrong way, or worse, lead others away from Him as we do it. You once had the Truth, Ray, Biblical truth, reclaim it, don't water it down. Being a Christian is a challenge and we are called to be perfect and to NOT give up one on the one who does the perfecting in us. He forgave the woman others wanted to stone. I think You would or might write a danceable tune depicting this woman but choose to leave out the last part - "Go and Sin No More" robbing the woman and your song listeners of real truth...the core of Jesus' message. He was about love and truth. May you sing on headed more toward His light and not away from it...thats my prayer for you and the end of my review of this morbid album.

A personal and musical triumph

Am I an oddity for having become a fan of Ray Boltz AFTER he came out? Perhaps the "mainstream" Christian music industry doesn't know "what to do with him" now, but I feel that his music, and his message, will find new listeners, and I am one of them. This is powerful music.
