Lately I’ve been thinking about all this a lot. Why do people get arrested for this and stuff?
Well, first thing is that, I’m not against preaching to people in public. But… does the Gospel really need to be preached THIS pushy? I mean, even if it was some kind of business he was talking about, I think they would still arrest him. Sometimes there are exceptions. I’m FOR preaching the Gospel. But not in such pushy ways. I think the Gospel needs to be pushed into the hearts, not from the outside of peoples bodies. The Holy Spirit is the One who works with the hearts. Our job is to preach the Gospel in the ways that would be accepted by the audience.
It’s a sorry day when you can’t read the Bible in public. I wonder, if he had just read in a normal voice, letting people that wanted to hear come closer, would they still have arrested him?? Probably, We Christians are letting the few run all over us and we have to start fighting back with more outreach, more sharing the word of God. Just check with a Lawyer first???
I understand the laws. Is it right no…Did they the men use wisdom? Probably not.
But may I point out that the OFFICER was almost at the point of cynical enjoyment of arresting these men for preaching the gospel. No one cant stop the power of the word of God. Not even you OFFICER..
Saying that, Christians have fallen short of voting for our rights. We don’t want to be pushy but we DO WANT our rights to preach the word of God. As times go by it will get worse. Jesus told us that. So hang onto your seats because it’s gonna be a bumpy ride. May God give us the grace and courage to do what is right.
when Jesus was asked to leave the land of Gerasenes He was not pushy and just left. It is a right of a property owner to say no to anyone doing anything the owner does not like. In this case they have been preaching on DMV premises.
The problem with the officer – he did not formulate correctly the reason for the arrest. In fact, his reason was unconstitutional. The right reason would be trespassing and interfering with a security officer. So the preacher might have a good case inth ecourt.
