Agreed. Just think of the first martyr, Stephen. Scripture says that the people hearing were ‚Äúcut to the heart‚ÄĚ, then they stoned him. But many after that came to know Christ, including the one whom they put the clothes of Stephen at his feet. Amen!! Keep going!!
Wickedness. I remember being taken to task about preaching on this sort of thing going on in schools way back in 2007, in Sidmouth town centre (open air) in England. Such vehemency against me. Devilish. And the general public kept walking on by, unconcerned. Oh, just another cranky open air preacher.
Sure I might have appeared cranky, but it would have helped if just a few from the church had joined me instead of leaving it all to me. They all got holy huddle syndrome. Didn't want to get tainted by the world. Didn't want to hear any swear words or get spat upon by devil-inspired worldlings. Well I don't want to hear swear words or get spat upon, but there is a price to pay if you want to see souls get saved. This is where the love of Christ is more powerful than the hatred of the devil.
