The Sounds of Fundamentalism: Rock Music and Hell by David Benoit

david benoit

This is the forty-eighth installment in The Sounds of Fundamentalism series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section.  Let’s have some fun!

Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a video clip of a sermon by Evangelical Evangelist David Benoit. Benoit preached a meeting for me at Somerset Baptist Church in the mid-1980s.

    By golly, it’s gettin’ kinda hot around here… better turn down the rock music and find some George Beverley Shea before I’m dancing on the hot coals… By gullibles, they sure fed us dog-chow in those days and we sat there all dressed up and chomped it down. Sheesh, it’s embarrassing.

    Oh my… the way he twisted his mouth to show how the burned boy looked to him and then used that twist to express his message to the young people! And talked about the wet feel of the lad’s grip and Ewww and goo and let us prey!
