Notes taken on very poignant statements by a fellow believer and Chicago attorney:
If you don’t believe in evil, if all you are looking for is heaven, (like, dare I say most, pre-trib believers) there is no reason to do anything for the glory of God – just be a little good. It is OK to do everything the world does (drink, listen to evil music, dance, fornicate (includes sodomy), etc. because there is no hell for them. I “love” and I am good enough. Those so-called Christians believe in hell but they do not think they are going there. They have their “fire insurance,” they think. They think: “I have my ticket to heaven so I need do nothing for the glory of God the rest of my life.” They do not believe in hell, the devil or evil – or at least as applied to them – or they would love Bible preaching. Real Christians, as opposed to these fake believers, these children of the devil, would get down on their knees and say “Thank you” to Bible based street preachers.
People (e.g., the religious crowd, adulterers, fornicators, liars, thieves, etc.) are offended and want to shut you up when you preach the truth.
Anti-Christian Hatred Sweeps The World (072715)(This is true even in America. Bible preaching street preachers know this. This article includes an incident of abuse of street preachers at a gay pride parade. Of course, all those being called Christians and being persecuted because of it are not Christians as defined by the Bible, but many are. The Bible makes clear that God wishes no one to be persecuted by his fellow man because of his religion; God wants a nation to honor freedom of religion and freedom of conscience. I explain this in my writings and teachings.)

Street Preaching in North Korea: Bro. John Short was arrested Sunday in PyongYang (North Korea) for possessing gospel literature and distributing it there. … “It’s a fascist state and they would take a very dim view of anyone distributing information that doesn’t concur with the state ideology. A worse place to be caught doing something like that is unimaginable.” Click here to go to article.
Article: Street preacher reaches agreement with city to keep preaching Gospel downtown (090814) by Amos Bridges. I realize that one cannot depend upon secular media for accurate reporting of facts, but taking this article on its face, the street preacher in this article and perhaps his lawyer did not know what they were doing as regards resolution of this case according to biblical principles. Street preacher, call Jerald Finney for a legal opinion before you act when confronted by the police and drug into the legal system.
The Danger of the Modern Gospel (The preacher did a marvelous job of exposing a false gospel which was much the same as that hireling you met on the streets of Minnesota who also believed a false gospel in that he was rebuking those who preached the truth.)
Street Preaching at Ida’s Trail Of Lights (With preaching, support, + some oppositions, as to be expected as our examples of Jesus, the apostles, believers throughout the ages, etc.)
David Ickes wrote (Facebook 123013): “Isn’t it amazing how many Christians actually have no idea that evangelism is always public? It’s almost as if those guys don’t read their Bible.”
David Ickes wrote (Facebook 123013): “The only example of preaching in the entire new testament that was indoors was when Paul went to Troas on his way to Jerusalem at the end of his third Journey. And he put Eutychus to sleep. lol So I think these other guys have that part down. haha. Evangelism is Always public. In every case.”
David Ickes wrote (Facebook 123013): “So we teach our guys to leave the “preacher” on the pulpit we preach upon. When they get down, they act like civilized Christian men with some meekness, humility, and boldness. And they even take time to listen. Like being swift to hear, slow to speak and slow to wrath.”
David Ickes wrote (Facebook 123013): “Amen James it does. If you are referring to my use of the word preach, notice I put it in quotes. Because there is a difference between preaching to a crowd and preaching to a man. And if one doesn’t know the difference he will make a mockery of the ministry. And of Christ.”
David Ickes wrote (Facebook 123013): “This results in them getting BOTH wrong. They assemble wrong and they evangelize wrong. Nobody could convince me that isn’t Satanic doctrine.”
“Those that are born again Christians. Please pray for your brethren today as we do the work of an evangelist in the open air. There is no preaching in this video here. It is just pictures along with some music (songs that will bless a save).” Click here to view.

Subject: RE: Open Air Evangelist – Preach at Detroit Tigers Opening Day – 2014 – YouTube
Great day it was. God is good!
There was more people than the world series. We were surrounded by more people than at indy,before the game and after it started. We most certainly need to start putting this event on the time off work list. So many lost and misguided people,right in our own backyard. This can,and should,be an all day event. We preached for only two hours,and could have been 8 hours easily. It was a crowded event that needed a crowd of preachers. Praise God for the protection and liberty given to us that day. God is good!
By His Grace Alone, John Alexander
2 Corinthians 5:14-15
14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:
15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
