This is Rodney from the Masculine Journey podcast, where we explored manhood within Jesus Christ. Your chosen Truth Network podcast is starting in just a few seconds. Sit back, enjoy it, share it, but most of all, thank you for listening and choosing the Truth Podcast Network.

This is the Truth Network. Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is set for one fall. Introducing first, Lyd Doynya, he weighs 123 kilos, the Russian nightmare, Nikita Kolov! Welcome to another episode of Q&A with Kolov, the devil's nightmare. Tim Nabors, Sweet Home Alabama, welcome to the Q&A show with Kolov. Thank you, Nikita, I appreciate it.

You tickled an estimate here. Well, and I appreciate you and Tim for our listeners out there. Why don't you tell them where Sweet Home Alabama is and a little bit about your family as well.

Well, Nikita, my name is Tim Nabors. Sweet Home Alabama is actually our church in the area I grew up in. And we're just south of Huntsville, Alabama, four miles from Gunnerfield Lake. Beautiful place to be if you ever come this way.

It'd be worth your stay to spend a couple of nights and take your time on the lake, just have a good time. I'm married to Timmy Nabors. We've been married 38 years, have one daughter and three beautiful grandchildren. And I tell you what, that grandchild part kind of changes your life. Love every minute of it. Yeah, different raising, or I say raising, different being with grandchildren than raising your own children, would you say? Yeah, absolutely.

I love it. You can fill them full of sugar and send them back home. I was just getting ready to ask, well, what would you say if you could like once, what's one thing different that you might, so you may not fill your child. Well, some do still fill their child with sugar, but you don't get to send them home. They're under your own roof, right? So then you have to deal with it. So in other words, what I'm hearing, Tim, is you get to spoil your grandchildren.

That's what I'm hearing. Yes, sir. I get to do those things, but still hold them accountable.

And you laid back that pull, but it's still fun. And of course, they love just spending that with Papa and Grandma. So Papa and Grandma, is that what they call you guys? Yeah.

Okay. Because I know when I first had my first grandchild, my daughter was like, my daughter, Taryn, she's like, you're not old enough to be a grandpa. And I'm like, well, I appreciate that, but I'm old school, so I'm not going to do the Papa or the Papa or, you know, all these different things, right? I'm like, look, just call me grandpa. Just call me grandpa, right? So that's what I am now to 10 grandchildren.

10, Tim, 10. Oh my goodness. Well, you just answered one of my questions. Well, hold on. We'll get to that. We'll get to that. We'll get to that.

But let's go. So you and I met, we figured out you and I met about probably 15 plus or minus years ago at a men's conference in Alabama. Now, you didn't, you, were you just attending that or hosting that or how that happened?

Just attending with our church. A group of men from our church went and our pastor had spoken with either you or Rob Lambert, and you were going to come back to our church the next day and preach, but you needed some word to say, so you ended up coming home with me and spending a night with Tammy and I, and the rest is history. We've been friends ever since.

Yeah. I mean, and you've been gracious hosts. I mean, it's been, I don't even know, eight, 10, 12, or maybe even more times that I have stayed in your home.

Now, let me ask you this because I know, because so you got an education background, but also some ministry background as well and mixed in there. We did some, some new true, you know, we did some nutrition things together. And of course I had the total package.

Lux Luger with me. Sometimes did, did Lex ever stay in your house or no? Yes, he did. He stayed on a couple occasions when you stayed. Yeah. He, he came down with you on several occasions and spent them out with us. Okay. So you, you have had the, the Russian nightmare and the total package. Both not, not many people can say that Tim.

Do you realize, do you realize that not many people can say that? Yes, I stayed and I remember where we were at at the time. Y'all would stay in the Lauren's room, which you had to sleep on pink sheep cause that was always a big joke.

Had no, no problem doing that. But because I raised four girls. So yeah.

Right now third, her bedroom was the Gunner's full way, but we actually lived on the lake at that time. Right. Right. Yeah.

Yeah. So, but like for real, that just hit me. I just thought, I wonder how many people could say they had Nikita Koloff and Lex Luger staying in their home, not, not once, but, you know, a half a dozen or more times, you know, so. And one of those, I'll tell this story real quick. I know we're pressing time, but, uh, Lex was, we were at a person's house doing one of those nutritional programs and let sit down in their recliner. And, you know, let didn't just sit down easily.

A lot of times they would just kind of fall in the chair. Plop down. Yeah.

Yes. Plop in the chair and it kept going back and it just flipped. No, I did that. He did. Oh, he probably thought, he probably thought I rigged the chair or something. You know, cause I hit him with a belt one time, you know, so.

Yeah. Oh my gosh. Say he flipped and flipped over backwards or basically. I hope he listens to this episode.

I'm just saying, I'm going to say Luger. Go listen to Tim neighbor's Q and a, so that is too funny. I, I vaguely remember that happening. I vaguely remember that happening. Well, so, so you're in Alabama and, and there are, uh, there are of course, a few wrestling fans in Alabama. Did you, uh, grow up, uh, being a wrestling fan or how big of a wrestling fan were you?

Let me just ask you. Not just a massive wrestling fan, but I watched it, uh, and I watched you quite a bit and watch leg boat, but, and I guess the way I started watching it was I would be at my pau pau town and watch it and I'd be in the living room with him and I'd end up watching him more than the wrestling because he would start out sitting in the chair. By the time the max was almost over with, he's standing in the chair, punching with y'all. No, come on.

Shadow boxing. He was, he was standing up yelling, screaming. I was, I love watching him as much as I did y'all. Hey, he, he believed it was real, didn't he? See, see that we, we, we did our job. We did our job, you know, that was our goal. We wanted people to believe it was real. Right. So yeah. And I heard, I heard that era, you know, the older crowds, you know, that watch it back, you know, the seventies and going back sixties, fifties and all that, you know, many of those people like were, you know, just bought, bought in hook line and sinker, you know, Oh, and if I don't know if you remember this, but when you spoke at our orientation that year to our teachers and you in your state, you told them a little bit about the profession and some of them were stunned that it wasn't real. I don't know if you remember that or not, but it was like, and you even made the comment with, I hate to bust your bubble, but it was like, Oh my goodness, you know, that wasn't real.

Yeah, we, we, we've shocked a few people. So, well, uh, on that note, let let's, cause this is cute. You get to ask me the questions and that, you know, typically, so let's, let's segue, let's transition, uh, give you the opportunity to, to ask me a few questions. So why don't you fire away with your few, your first question, Tim? Okay.

First question would be an easy one. Uh, I know how you are with your, uh, routine and you consider your body a temple and you take care of it. But the one thing I do remember about you and legs is you used to have your one day fun day. My question is, do you still do that? And what is your favorite guilty pleasure on that one day fun?

Good, good question. And, and, uh, yeah, so the short answer, the first part, yes, is still have a, a fun day, which is usually on Sundays. Typically, because, you know, churches want to take me out, you know, I may be in, in their community ministering, you know, I may do a conference that Saturday in their church and then preach on Sunday.

Like you're, you're referring to mentioning. And then, so they want to take me out after, after service. And so that's usually the time I have some, some of my treats, treats, uh, and reward myself, uh, on Sundays. And, and occasionally, you know, I'm not, I like to say I'm not legalistic on this thing. I mean, if I'm staying at a hotel on a Wednesday night and they have fresh cookies, I'm not going to, I'm not going to tell you I'm not going to have one. Now I'm not going to have 12 for the record, but I may have a hot chocolate chip cookie or something, but, um, and so, yeah, so the answer to that.

And, and I really, uh, uh, food, why I really like a really, and hard to find some that really good burger, like I'm not talking about like a little thin patty, I'm talking about one that, you know, you can barely wrap your mouth around it and, and that the buns are toasted, you know, the God, I have that little glaze on the buns, uh, that they're toasted and just to some of the trimmies and toppings along with, you know, me, perhaps a handful of fries or more cheesecake is, is one of my favorites as far as desserts go, including, uh, a dairy cubed plug for DQ dairy queen blizzards, which originally in Minnesota, by the way, um, but, uh, a DQ blizzard is one of my, my, my favorite, favorite, uh, shakes, if you will, or, or ice cream desserts, uh, and, and cheesecake, uh, with maybe some of the toppings. So there you go. Now, Keita Kholoff here, and I am excited. Did you hear the huge announcement, the big announcement? Well, maybe it's a minor announcement. Anyway, Facebook, go look up my new fan page, the Keita Kholoff fans and like it and follow today.

You're listening to the truth network and truth And if I remember right there for a while, you and legs, one of your favorite things to do is eat ice cream. So I guess the blizzard is what I was thinking about. Well, in fact, you know, he lived with me in 2015 for about 10 months. And, and we used to go to the store on Friday nights and scout out the ice cream aisle. And he's like, what are you going to get? I'm like, Oh, I don't know.

There's so many good flavors. I don't know. We just made, we just had fun with it. Tim, we said we are health nuts. And, and you know, the Bible talks about the body being a temple.

And so we just feel a mandate that God has a mandate for us to take care of our bodies, but also allow ourselves treats and reward ourselves for taking care of our bodies. And, and by the way, last note, uh, I'm not opposed to a Krispy Kreme donut either with the hot now sign on just for the record. I got it. All right.

Question number two, I have for you. And, uh, this is, I guess we all have ours, but you've always been such an encourager, especially to me. And I always had such a positive attitude. What drives you crazy? Or what is something that your pet peeve that just gets under your skin? Well, I just had this conversation a couple of days ago. My friend said, there's not much that gets under your skin, but boy, these drivers on the road, oh my gosh, Tim, I'm telling, man, I'm like, really? I mean, it's gotten, it seems like things have escalated over the last couple, three, four, five years.

I don't know what the time, but I crazier and crazier. I mean, I'm convinced him. I am convinced these people are driving 90 and a hundred miles an hour and weaving in and out of traffic.

Think they are in a video game. I am convinced of that. Until they have a 10 car pile up, then, then they reality hits and they realize maybe I shouldn't have been driving that fast and weaving in and out of traffic from four or five lanes from left to right and right to left. But I will say that's an easy answer behind the wheel of a carves. If something gets under my skin, it's those out there who, in my view, are reckless and taking not only their own life at risk, but risking the lives of many others behind the wheel of a, whatever it is, three, four, five, 6,000 pound machine. But that's what gets and there have been times. I've had, had the, had the good Lord, had to seek the good Lord. Lord, Lord bless that person. Lord, I didn't want to cuss him out. So I had to bless him out. Tim, so there you go.

For to help me in those moments because I get frustrated with that. My man. Anyway, there you go. So, all right.

Okay. I have a couple more if we have time, but we do, we do. The next one is we and I talked earlier and about the quest in the six days and my mountaintop moment or been on the mountain with God. Describe your mountaintop moment.

What was it like and can you remember where it was at? Yeah, man, and I'll answer, I'll answer it this way in that, you know, I can look back at my life as I think many or most of us probably can. And I call them defining moments where there's certain moments in your life. Like, wow, that, that was a defining moment.

And, and for sake of time, I could go through a half a dozen, you know, you know, and then give explanations to them. But like, it's just a quick example would be my freshman year in college in a football game in northern Minnesota. Our wide receiver was thrown into me and I fractured my lower leg, my tibia and my fibula. And that was a defining moment because I remember at 18 years old laying on that field, thinking this literally thinking this leg is my leg is shattered. My life is shattered. My dreams are shattered.

You know, I had dreams of playing in the NFL and, you know, and just everything. But that was a real, that was a defining moment. Now, I'm just going to condense the story. Fast forward to 17 October, 1993, after I left wrestling, which is so many other defining moments, getting into wrestling is a defining moment because it wasn't something I dreamed about as a kid, but a door of opportunity opened up. I leave wrestling 17 October, 1993, I find myself at an altar surrendering my life to Jesus. Boy, that was a defining moment. And then more specifically to your question, a mountaintop encounter was in March of 2006.

I boarded a bus on my birthday, actually, on March 9th and in 2006. And I'd already been walking with the Lord at that point for 13 years. But man, God just, I encountered him in a whole new way when I carved out a handful of days and just centered my gaze and my focus on him without any outside world, world distractions. And as you yourself experienced later on a quest event and now men come to our man camp and have experienced a very similar type of experience.

So March of 2006, Tim, was my mountaintop experience that, again, just was another stepping stone to forever change who I am as a man. Right. And I remember your October 17th because that's my birthday. And I thought, that's an awesome day. Wow, that's cool. Yeah. So my spiritual birthday is your physical birthday. Absolutely.

Now, that's a pretty cool thing. Let me say, I just want to tag on one other thing real quick, too, before we get to your last question here. And that is for the listeners out there. What made it so defining for me is for 46 years of my life, I'll testify and say this, Tim, for 46 years of my life, I was a male. And for the first time in my life at that camp in South Texas, I stepped into manhood, the way God defines it. Because up to that point, my life was still kind of defined by how the world had defined manhood. But there was a teaching that we now teach at man camp. But there was a teaching on that particular event that opened my eyes to true manhood, the way God defines it.

That's what made it so defining for me. So there you go. All right, we got time for one more. You said you have one more?

Yes, I'll make this as quick as possible. If you had a do-over in life where you could go back and change or do anything, what would you change? Oh, gosh, we don't have enough time for that one, Tim.

I'll just say, I'll give a shorter version and say, and looking back. And again, we can probably all look back and see not only defining moments, but where we, you know, maybe that decision was a mistake. This was a mistake.

That was a mistake. Although we can learn from our mistakes clearly if we're open to that. I'd say for me, overall, I'm just going to say relationships in general. That as I look back on past or prior friendships and relationships that, you know, had I known then what I know now, I might have handled some of those relationships differently. And to where, you know, I may still have some of those relationships, which I no longer do, but certainly can look back and say, okay, I did learn from those mistakes in those relationships. So, yep, yep.

Great question. Well, and I appreciate you, Tim, and I'm looking forward here and down the road, coming back to Alabama and spending some time with you. And I appreciate you being on the Q&A with Koloff today.

Yes, sir. Thank you for having me. And I can't wait to get to sit down and talk with you again.
