Playing Time



This recording begins with a man complaining about new music, saying he likes things the old way. He talks about women’s new roles in society and government, and how he questions that decision, eluding to Jezebel and the wise woman, foolish woman parable. He talks about the need to keep people in the church, stating what is wrong with young people today- from miniskirts to 13 year olds on birth control. After some gospel music, a woman welcomes people and talks about the church. She worries about people turning from God, and how she has to do her duty to stick with the church.
