THREE WORDS: Motorcycle. Jumping. Ministry.

According to the Florida Times-Union… Aaron Ramsey needs space to preach, usually a parking lot’s worth.

That’s where he’ll be Saturday and Sunday when his motorcycle-jumping ministry surges through a wall of fire and over nine buses outside Calvary Baptist Church in Middleburg.

The Augusta, Ga.-based preacher on wheels said he was originally inspired by the legendary motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel. Now, planning and prayer go into making safe, yet exciting jumps to strengthen his witnessing of the word of God.

“Once we become a servant of Jesus, we are obligated to use the talents that we have to share the gospel for Christ,” said Ramsey, 49.

Motorcycle stunts aren’t usually part of preaching the word, admits Calvary’s associate pastor, Tim Pledger. But as when Jesus used a story to explain a greater spiritual truth, Pledger invited Ramsey to give his flock entertainment and a message.

“We use these different earthly secular things to be able to teach greater truth,” Pledger said. “No matter who you are or what your background is, there is a God who loves us. This will relate to people on their level and help them be more willing to accept the Gospel.”

Christian Nightmares found this!

You can see one of Aaron’s jumps here. The jump doesn’t actually happen until the 2-minute mark.

“why they lightin’ it on fire? ”

“’cause when jesus died on the cross, he did a jump similar to this one down into hell. this also explains why the curtain was torn in two.”

“awesome. i wanna be like jesus.”

“This will relate to people on their level and help them be more willing to accept the Gospel.”

I like the assumption that flaming motorcycle stunts will bring the Gospel down to people’s ‘level.’

2 Kings 6:17, “And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, LORD, so that he may see. Then the LORD opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and *chariots of fire* all around Elisha.”

Hmm. SNL has poked fun with Jesus before… Chances are, Pat wouldn’t have said anything about this skit had it not been poking fun at Tebow… SNL has used “Jesus” in skits many many times. There seems to be a double standard among some Christians when the religious sati
