NASCAR prayer gets a few punch lines
GLADEVILLE — Before Saturday night’s Nationwide Federated Auto Parts 300, Pastor Joe Nelms of the Family Baptist Church delivered quite a memorable invocation.

Nelms offered his thanks for many things throughout the prayer, but he was very specific when referring to the race cars.

“Most of all, thank you for Roush and Yates partnering to give us the power that we see before us tonight,” Nelms said, referring to the engine manufacturers for some of the cars. He went on to thank the Lord for the “Sonoco racing fuel and Goodyear tires that bring performance and power to the track.” ...

You are off topic this article is about speedway racing.
Consider yourself reprimanded!

Quote;

the article wrote:
Clean racing: With only three minor cautions, the race was one of the cleanest ever at Nashville Superspeedway. The three yellow flags tied a record for the fewest at a Nationwide race in Nashville. The extended runs helped Edwards build a big advantage late in the race and coast to victory.

A Christian minister is a man who may be single, married or widower.

There's no law requiring a pastor be married.

However, my sponsor was a Protestant minister who converted and is now a married Roman Catholic priest with six children. So if you're Catholic you may have a single priest or he may be married -- either way just as the Bible allows.

Thankfully most parish buildings do not even have their priest's name on the marquee. Their ministry is not about them or their wit, but about Christ, His Communion, His Bible and His Gospel (The Nicene Creed) and ushering the soul to Heaven.

If someone hasn't pointed it out, a pastor is suppose to have the qualifications of an Elder:

Titus 1
5 For this reason I left you in Crete, that you might set in order what remains, and appoint elders in every city as I directed you,
6 namely, if any man be above reproach, the husband of one wife, having children who believe, not accused of dissipation or rebellion.
7 For the overseer must be above reproach as God's steward, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not addicted to wine, not pugnacious, not fond of sordid gain,
8 but hospitable, loving what is good, sensible, just, devout, self-controlled,
9 holding fast the faithful word which is in accordance with the teaching, that he may be able both to exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict.---NASB

Even people who have been Christians for quite awhile should be able to fulfill the above requirements. Being a comedian is not one of those requirements. Ah, but John Y., Catholics priests never fulfill those requirements, and are rarely funny. I hope you don't (Well no, that's ok) snore too loudly in Mass?

I agree fully with your comment. It was mocking and showing disdain for my Lord and Savior. I personally don't see how it is even possible for a believer to behave in this manner.

"... at the end of his prayer.
“In Jesus’ name, Boogity Boogity Boogity, amen,” Nelms said."

Prayer is very serious to the true Christian.

It is extremely serious to the Lord who declared...
"Jer 14:11 Then said the LORD unto me, Pray not for this people for their good.
12 When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and an oblation, I will not accept them: but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence."

If the Lord is not going to listen to the prayer of His prophet because His people anger Him by their lack of heart dedication to Him, then this pastor will not be heard in his prayer of covetousness.

This pastor's congregation need to do an in depth check into his commitment to Scripture and the Lord.

Won't be too long before public prayer at NASCAR is unplugged.

This scandal will be a reason.

It sounded like a prayer that was directed to please a crowd.
If compared to the prayers recorded in scripture, one has to come away with the conclusion that this prayer was nothing like what God has recorded for us in the Bible. Prayer is a serious matter before a thrice holy God. Never do we find it used as a means to make crowds laugh.

Once again in America, where NASCAR and NFL is the god of so many, can such confusion take place.

This "I like releveant preachers" is just another way of saying "I want God, and the gospel on my own low class terms."
I have to agree. In fact, "irreverent" was the very word that came to my mind when I first read this article.

Very Irreverent. The Thanksgiving for the racing products came very near to the Praise of said products. But the comment about his "Smoking hot Wife" was way out of line. A man should protect the dignity, modesty and reputation of his wife.

This "I like releveant preachers" is just another way of saying "I want God, and the gospel on my own low class terms.

Nelms is a funny Baptist minister. I like the way Nelms delivers prayers in a funny but reverent manner. I like Baptist ministers who preach the Gospel in a way that is funny and reverent.
