Jesus Is A Soul Man

When Christians attempt to be 'hip'

I don't buy a lot of Christian records, but this one from the Sego Brothers & Naomi had just the right hook to catch my interest: Jesus is a Soul Man. Get it? I love the way bible-belt Christians will co-opt almost any aspect of secular culture to get their word out. One day Jesus is a Soul Man, and the next thing you know, there are Christian heavy metal bands playing at your local football stadium. Watch out!

This is pretty much a one-joke record (unless you count the subjoke included in the title song, I'm sure SOULed on him). I suppose the idea was to get the kids interested enough to listen to the more serious Jesus tales later on the album.

Interestingly enough, Jesus Is A Soul Man comes to us from Nashville-based Spar Records, the same recording geniuses behind The Now Generation. I guess when you're hip, you're hip!

Dear bothers in Chrit, I must conversate with you once more. Truely Jesus is in us all, and he is there to help us when we are low, and I ask the help of my fellow brothers in Chit, i need to be sponsored so I can leave my yob as a bus monitor and bring the word of Chrit to everyone. I have bin inspired by the above record and now wish to update the premise by recording a rap record about Chrit and Gud. I shall call it "Jesus be illin'" and it will be about the holy trinity and their everyday roles as saviours and busters of PHAT RHYMES!!!11 (04-18-2002)

Country Paul says:
Sad that Lawrence Reynolds passed on, but agree with all my fellow "heathens" (as in "mainstream religion" folks) that cashing in on a trend is not the way to "sell" God. Of course, "selling God" is not the way, either. Didn't listen to the songs - I've heard enough excessively-earnest gospel already. (And David Jospeh reads as though he needs either more or fewer drugs....) (10-16-2001)

Sad news. Original Soulman ( Lawrence Reynolds passed away a week or so ago. Here's an appreciation of the singer-songwriter who inspired Jesus Christ Superstar according to his friends, and also wrote Loretta Lynn's "If God Is Dead, What's This Living In My Heart". (Reprinted from the Mobile Alabama Register):

More sad news. I can't get the Sego Bros. and Naomi Real Audio Experience to play. A moment of silence in tribute to the man, or broken links, broken promises? Fix it, please. I've got to hear this! (08-27-2001)

Dear
A sense of inferiority And inadequey interes with the attainment of your hopes,but self confidence leads to self realisation and successful achievement. inferiority complex. First. It is important to discover why you have these feelings of no power. That requires analysis and will take time. Work if you use it. I con do all thing thruogh Christ which strengtheneth me.to gether with a sincere practising of the techniques of faith And prayer. Made him a valuable asset to his company. His real powers were released. if you are to reeducate the mind And make of it a power producing plant. And help of God seventy five per cent llsted lack of confidence.deep within themselves They mistrust their ability to meet responsibilities or to grasp opportunities. Always they are beset by the vague And sinister fear That something is not going to be quite right. They do not believe That they have it in them to be what They want to be, And so They try to make themselves content with something less than That of which They are capable. Attitudes are more important than facts. Actually with you And helping you. God will be your companion, will stand by you, help you, And see you God is with me; God is helping me; God is guiding me.
