Gospel Trick Shots

Gospel TrickShot Bonus #1

Friend that Sticks Close

History of the Trick Shot: The only person I have seen use this shot is my Gospel Trick Shot travel partner Tom “Dr. Cue” Rossman. We have been to a dozen countries together and this shot has always been one of his signature shots while sharing the love and joy of Jesus in his portion of the show.

GTS Name and Why: When you see the outcome of this shot, the name and message become obvious. We joke around that I am deep (complicated) and he is shallow (simple). I have a math and physics explanation of Gospel Trick Shot #1 called “Obstacles” that covers about five chapters in my college physics textbook. After I am done, Tom breaks things down so even a child can understand.

Scripture References in NIV Translation: Proverbs 18:24 and John 15: 13.

Cue Ball Placement: The cue ball is placed as shown in the diagram.

Object Ball(s) placement: Use only the special two prop balls that are bolted together which can be homemade or custom made to order. Make sure that the right ball is in line with the right side of pocket B.

Objective: Hit the center of the cue ball firm. The cue ball will strike the center of the right object ball. Shoot the cue and right ball in a straight line to the right side of side pocket B. Both balls will go in pocket B together at the same time. You can comment after the balls go in that you can’t get any closer than that!

Special Notes: Make sure to hit this firm, as a softer hit will alter the direction of the twisting balls.

Crowd Reactions Through the Years: After you shoot the shot, ask if anyone has any questions. They will undoubtedly ask you how you did that. Take the two balls from the pocket made and show the answer for a great laugh, plus it can also be used Friend that Sticks Close to show deception in life again as a message point. I usually follow Tom’s portion of the Gospel Trick Shot show as this shot is a good lead into what God wants me to say as Jesus is the one that sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24). This shot also helps to loosen up the crowd before I take the message a little deeper with the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ
