its nice to c that the picture posted here is actualy my copy of the pulpit. :) again another condom masterpice. here's a funny review that was posted on the semi functional CON-DOM website.

A hard wood sermon record pulpit, almost 5 years old, may provide the second oldest archeological record of Jesus of Nazareth next to the limestone burial box of his brother James found a few months back, experts announced Wednesday.

The "Sermons", as the sets are known, dates to some time A.D. and has an inscription in English which translates to: "Seven reasons why I love my saviour Jesus Christ" said an ancient language expert.

The "Sermons" set which contains 8 7" records are a series of religiously motivated songs recorded by CON-DOM which were released separately by a variety of record labels sometime during late 1990's A.D. The records all come together in this wood pulpit including the very hard to find 2nd sermon "HATRED" which was limited to only 160 copies while all the others were in the range of 400 to 1000 copies each. The set also contains a fine booklet of religious preaching by Michael Dando.

"The "Sermon" series of 7 X 7"'s was inspired by the cover of a 1975 edition of the Christian Nationalist Crusade magazine "The Cross and The Flag", Proclaiming "Seven Reasons Why I Love My saviour Jesus Christ". Each "Sermon" is a skewed, ironic take on a Christian concept, interpreting it in the context of control culture. As a point of information, all seven "Sermons" will be drawn together in a limited edition set of 25 copies only for Easter 1997 release. The set will feature a booklet and bonus "8th Sermon" 7" and will be packaged with an authentic church lectern and lavishly embroidered lectern frontal." said Michael Dando in a 1996 interview with Decent Magazine.

The records included in the set contain the limited edition copies of some of the records which the colorings of fonts of some are different and extra inserts are present.

Some scholars expressed doubt that the set, which is 14 inches long by 10 inches wide, could be definitively linked to Jesus, a Jewish carpenter by trade revered by Christians as the son of God.

"We may never be absolutely certain. In the work I do we're rarely absolutely certain about anything," said Myle KcCarter, a Hohns Jopkins University archaeologist, who said that the finding was probable, but that he had "a bit of doubt."

While most scholars agree that Jesus existed, no physical evidence from the first century has ever been conclusively tied with his life. Two scientists from the Israeli government's geological survey tested the sets last month, inspecting the surface patina and inscription under a microscope. They concurred that the object is more than 5 years old, the archaeology magazine reported.

"It's hard to avoid the conclusion that these inscriptions refer to the personages so identified in the New Testament," said Sershel Hanks, editor of Biblical Archaeology Magazine.

Many of the conclusions reached by experts relied on the inscription written on the front panel. The pulpits commonly were used by people to store there 8 7" records that come with the set.

Instead of exhibiting the sets at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, Canada, during the annual meeting of Bible scholars in November they will be sold by Michael Dando the creator of the sets for 200 British pounds plus shipping each. Although some may think this is an exzorbant amount of money this was actualy the production costs for the item. The Sets are very high quality material and are being sold at cost with no collectors inflation since there original release. This is a labor of love and is not being sold for profit.

"This is something that provides a bridge over time," Sershel Hanks said. "My reaction is not so much excitement as it is awe."
