Options Sinner's Crossroads with Kevin Nutt: Playlist from December 18, 2014 Options

Kevin Nutt's avatar View Kevin Nutt's profile Options

Scratchy vanity 45s, pilfered field recordings, muddy off-the-radio sounds, homemade congregational tapes and vintage commercial gospel throw-downs; a little preachin', a little salvation, a little audio tomfoolery.

I was board op-ing a screening of the premiere of Downton Abbey Season 5 at work and it ran late.

There was a barber that thought that he should share his faith with his customers more than he had been doing lately. So the next morning when the sun came up and the barber got up out of bed he said, "Today I am going to witness to the first man that walks through my door."

Soon after he opened his shop the first man came in and said, "I want a shave!" The barber said, "Sure, just sit in the seat and I'll be with you in a moment." The barber went in the back and prayed a quick desperate prayer saying, "God, the first customer came in and I'm going to witness to him. So give me the wisdom to know just the right thing to say to him. Amen."

Then quickly the barber came out with his razor knife in one hand and a Bible in the other while saying "Good morning sir. I have a question for you... Are you ready to die?"

@Brother Nutt: Just glad to hear you weren't board-opping a screening of "The Interview." Now THAT could get hairy.

The little girl was sitting with her grandmother, who had presented her with her first little children's Bible, in an easy-to-read translation, when she was very young.

Now, a decade or so later, the elderly lady was ready to spend a few sweet moments handing down the big old family Bible, in the time-honored King James Version, to her only grandchild.

Understandably excited, the youngster was asking a number of questions, both about the family members whose births and deaths were recorded therein, and about various aspects of the Scriptures themselves.

Her grandmother was endeavoring to answer all the child's questions in terms she could understand, but the one that stopped her cold was this sincere inquiry:

"Which Virgin was the mother of Jesus? Was it the Virgin Mary, or the King James virgin?"

Hi Chris! Hi P-90! "Is it Safe?" HAHAHAHAHA.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/18/14 8:10pm DeaconDave:

A boy was sitting on a park bench with one hand resting on an open Bible. He was loudly exclaiming his praise to God. "Hallelujah! Hallelujah! God is great!" he yelled without worrying whether anyone heard him or not.

Shortly after, along came a man who had recently completed some studies at a local university. Feeling himself very enlightened in the ways of truth and very eager to show this enlightenment, he asked the boy about the source of his joy.

"Hey" asked the boy in return with a bright laugh, "Don't you have any idea what God is able to do? I just read that God opened up the waves of the Red Sea and led the whole nation of Israel right through the middle."

The enlightened man laughed lightly, sat down next to the boy and began to try to open his eyes to the "realities" of the miracles of the Bible. "That can all be very easily explained. Modern scholarship has shown that the Red Sea in that area was only 10-inches deep at that time. It was no problem for the Israelites to wade across."

The boy was stumped. His eyes wandered from the man back to the Bible laying open in his lap. The man, content that he had enlightened a poor, naive young person to the finer points of scientific insight, turned to go. Scarcely had he taken two steps when the boy began to rejoice and praise louder than before. The man turned to ask the reason for this resumed jubilation.

"Wow!" exclaimed the boy happily, "God is greater than I thought! Not only did He lead the whole nation of Israel through the Red Sea, He topped it off by drowning the whole Egyptian army in 10 inches of water!"

God won't ask what your highest salary was.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/18/14 8:31pm DeaconDave:

God and Satan

In the beginning God covered the earth with broccoli, cauliflower, and spinach, with green and yellow and red vegetables of all kinds, so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives.

Then using God's bountiful gifts, Satan created Haagen Das Ice Cream and Magnums. And Satan said: 'You want hot fudge with that?' And Man said: 'Yes!' And Woman said: 'I'll have one too ...with sprinkles.' And lo they gained 10 pounds.

And God created the healthful yogurt that Woman might keep the figure that Man found so fair. And Satan brought forth white flour from the wheat, and sugar from the cane, and combined them. And Woman went from size 2 to size 14.

So God said: 'Try my fresh green garden salad.' And Satan presented crumbled Blue Cheese dressing and garlic croutons on the side. And Man and Woman unfastened their belts following the repast.

God then said: 'I have sent you heart healthy vegetables and olive oil in which to cook them.' And Satan brought forth deep-fried coconut king prawns, butter-dipped lobster chunks, and chicken-fried steak so big it needed its own platter. And Man's cholesterol went through the roof.

Then God brought forth the potato, naturally low in fat and brimming with potassium and good nutrition. Then Satan peeled off the healthful skin and sliced the starchy centre into chips and deep-fried them in animal fats adding copious quantities of salt. And Man put on more pounds.

God then brought forth running shoes so that his Children might lose those extra pounds. And Satan came forth with a cable TV with remote control so Man would not have to toil changing the channels. And Man and Woman laughed and cried before the flickering light and started wearing stretch jogging suits.

God then gave lean beef so that Man might consume fewer calories and still satisfy his appetite. And Satan created McDonald's and the .99 pence double cheeseburger. Then Satan said, 'You want fries with that?' And Man replied: 'Yes! And super size ' em!' And Satan said: 'It is good.' And Man and Woman went into cardiac arrest.

God sighed...and created quadruple by-pass surgery.

And then...Satan chuckled

and created the National Health Service...............

As a man of no faith (love the idea, just never worked on me), I really appreciate the aphorisms, Deacon Dave. Good stuff. The best of any religion is teaching us to live right and make the best of our short life here on this planet.

took a few minutes for the laptop to get up, which is why this post is after the fact, but was that an electric sitar on My Testimony? Sounded like one. Love those things. Showing my age.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/18/14 8:50pm chris:

Thanks for sharing these beautiful tunes with us each week, Brother Kevin. As a bonus, I always think of my dad, who loved to sing and harmonize, and who left this world too soon. I am forever grateful to you for your show.
Avatar Thu. 12/18/14 8:52pm sinner:

No sitar. No. Just a guitar.

Thank you, Chris. My father always listens to my show....but he can't sing, bless his heart.
  Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/18/14 8:53pm Lonely Planet Boy:

still a great tune, thanks!
