Every open air preacher encounters opposition from unbelievers. However, the troubling fact is that much of the resistance we receive is from those who claim the name of Christ!
Just yesterday I had the privilege of sharing an open air pulpit in Kitchener, Ontario with a team of evangelists who are currently preaching their way across many major cities in Canada.
Several of the team members include: Robert Grey, Mike Stockwell, Chris Sippley, and Sye Ten Bruggecnate. We praise God that these men are also scheduled to join us for our next Extreme Team Mission to Niagara Falls on August 24th!
As I was preaching, I noticed a man arguing with the rest of the team – he was obviously annoyed with what he was hearing. I later found out that he believed that the Gospel is to be lived, not preached.
However, how might this man reconcile the popular claim to “preach the Gospel at all times, use words if necessary”, with God’s Word that preaching the Gospel requires words (Romans 1:16; 10:17; 1 Corinthians 15:1; 1 Peter 1:23, 25)?
I thank God for the faithful preaching of brother Robert Grey and for our dear friend, Paul Latour, who took the time to put together this powerful and moving testimony called “Last Call” on the streets of Ottawa:
