The lyrics don’t hold back, reminding the believer of Who God is—His faithfulness and goodness! The instrumentals collide with the lyrics to create magnificent music of praise to the one true God. The Outcome album promises an indisputable message of faith, hope, and love—the kind that is joyous and unshakable—because it is found alone in God.

In it is a message of the pathway to healing for every kind of brokenness, stronghold, and bondage through worship.

Category Religious/Christian/Inspirational Genre Drama/Mystery Release Date August 21, 2018. Rating 4 Stars Review A solemn, thought-provoking, but overall, hope-inspiring story that centers on the relationship between God and man and how this affects life on earth generally, as well as how it applies to individual living. An Interview With God presents a scenario where the all-knowing God seeks to help man dig deep into the questions of life that matter the most, but are rarely asked because of fear or negligence. Paul (Brendon Thwaites), the journalist, confronts God (David Straithairn) at first, with mockery questions, and subsequently, accusations, which God wisely points out the sources from which each unique issue arises. Interestingly, this story is not cliché at all, as it approaches the man-meets-God scenario with finesse and a unique twist that presents an altogether faith-inspiring message that is timeless. A well-rounded story!
Category Religious/Christian Genre Contemporary Praise/Worship Release Date August 17, 2018. Rating 5 Stars Review This softly worshipful but powerful praise & worship shows a heart that displays gratitude and satisfaction toward God with the finest of music, lyrics, and passionate voices. There’s a maturity to the tone of the music that reflects the truth that Tomlin has been doing this for a while; but this is also beyond fine-tuned skill; this is a person that has grown in their relationship with God. It is seen in the genuineness of his heart throughout the EP. It can’t be explained. Only heard and perceived. For an album that could easily lead you into a mode of worship, pick up Tomlin’s Nobody Loves Me Like You Do.

While it isn’t particularly Christian, it carries an inspirational theme of love and celebration of life that is clearly birthed from a place of faith, reminding the listener of how precious the gift of life is. The anthem-like Now or Never echoes a heart that celebrates romantic love, the gratitude of living in the moment and enjoying every bit of it…just as God would have us do!
Category Religious/Christian Genre Pop/Rock Release Date August 10, 2018. Rating 4.5 Stars Review CASS’s White Noise is a love song of appeal to God, showing the singer’s passion, zeal, and need for a relationship with God as their lover. This is what it means for Jesus to be the Groom, and us, the Bride, an aspect of the Christian faith not emphasized enough. White Noise shows the earnest pursuit of love and intimacy with God, which is a desperately needed message in music today.
