Mike Warnke – Jester In The King’s Court – 1977

Mike Warnke is a great preacher and a funny guy. This is his early stuff, from 1977, before his wife Rose joined him in the performance. He had a serious knack for using funny messages to make strong spiritual truths. Speaking of truth, it is well known that Mike recanted much of his testimony about witchcraft. Despite that, these records are packed with truths. Communicating truth is the main point of fiction, after all. One thing that is noteworthy listening to his body of work is that even when he comes up to the edge of socially acceptable comedy, he knew how to stay within boundaries. Just like George Carlin and others of his era, Mike could tell jokes that made fun of situations without making fun of people. In doing so, the message is never lost.

It should be noted that Warnke was revealed as a liar and fraudster in 1991 by Cornerstone magazine. This recording is offered as a historic record of what was being listened to in the Christian community in the late 70’s and early 80’s.
