Ya Ain't S'posta Laugh or Fart Durin' the Sermon

I was listening to a talk today given by a Black Baptist preacher on the radio. Reading from the Biblical account of the interaction between David and Goliath, he correlated that situation with the ominous present day problems in our culture. He related all this to God's oversight in the affairs of men and also included the story of Nebuchadnezzar's furnace and God's care for the three young Hebrews that were thrown into it for refusing to bow down to his image; Shadrach, Meshach, and A Bad Negro.

I thought I was going to die laughing and nearly wet myself. I was surely glad that I wasn't sitting in church and hearing this in the sermon. It has to be an old rendition, but I had never heard it before.

He should have stuck with Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah. If you can turn one of them into anything like "a bad negro" my hats off to ya.

We're reading Daniel in devotions. So just, thanks.

There's no way I will be able to explain why I'm laughing.
