Stryper: The Newest Testament Yet!

J. Kordosh, Creem, June 1986

And a crowd did gather outside a great hall in El Paso, but not to hear of Stryper, but to rebuke them mightily with picket and bullhorn. For, yea, they were believers and sore afraid of Stryper. And so it happened that one of Stryper's money-handlers spake unto the crowd, "Be not afraid of this sound, for it shall not harm you, no, not the least among you. In fact, the show's on us, come on in for free." Or something like that. But their ears were like stone and they heard him not, and not one did enter unto that hall.
 — Kordoshians, 13:1-19
