How to save a soul: Presbyterian style (circa 1973)

6 Aug

So I found an interesting tape today. Ever heard a pastor lead someone to Christ? Perhaps you yourself sat with a Reverend, and he asked you if you wished to be saved.

Did they sound a little rehearsed?  This stuff takes practice. Saving souls is serious business, and there’s a right way and a wrong way.

Below is a recording from 1973, of a pastor learning the right way to save a soul.  He’s got church member Scotty acting as a “practice soul”, and an executive pastor walking him through, and them making this recording to listen to afterward. Just like football players after a big game.

Now you too can learn How to save a soul, old-school Presbyterian style.

Note: The tape is labeled First Presbyterian Church, 1973.. that’s how I know the year and church.

DISCLAIMER this recording may bore some to tears.

Fire by Nite Intro starring Gay Jesus

10 Jun jesus in gold spandex

Fire by Nite was a Christian skit show, with music videos and “star” interviews. This is the intro from a 1990 show.  The theme for this show was all about Jesus being a tough guy. What?! Does it really matter? I mean.. you are talking about a God you believe to be the Creator of everything that ever existed right?


Hey kids! Can you say Indoctrination!?

Here comes Jesus bible puppets

Christians love puppets. They really really do. I may have practiced ventriloquism as a young christian child, I won’t lie.

I have to wonder if they think indoctrination sounds less crazy coming out of diverse “felt” people. … Cause it doesn’t.

This one takes me back (as much as I rather not admit it).

What’s better than an 80’s rock video? An 80’s christian rock video. Oh… the mullets, the guitar solos, the fist pumps and the crucifixion. What more could we ask for?

This music video snippet is courtesy of ‘Fire By Nite’, a Christian SNL rip off. And trust me, there’s more to come.

Lord who?

The Appointment (VHS)

funny atheist video

The Appointment is about a “hot” atheist reporter talking bad about religion. And her atheist co-workers, all with beards for some reason, don’t seem to have a problem with it.

God’s solution? Send an angel with a POV camera to tell her she has an appointment with DEATH. Yeah. That will teach her.

UPDATE:  “Christian Crap”, my favorite neighborhood church-run thrift store, really came through today. Not only were videos “buy one get one free”, but some church unloaded their entire 90’s video collection. Oh yes, I’ll need to bust into a six pack for these viewings. More videos to come I’m sure. Petra and Michael W. Smith will most definitely be involved.
