“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.” – 1 Corinthians 1:18
The street preacher is the king of fools and the master of folly. It’s a fool’s errand to rebuke a hardened heart given over to lust and perversion. What’s the point. Why put yourself in a position to be mocked and ill treated. Why cast your pearls before swine. Why would an intelligent young man take all his clothes off and dance naked in the street while his homosexual lover chants, “repent of your pride, repent of your pride” surely you can see the folly of it all. Why stand your ground and insist on repentance and faith in Jesus Christ for forgiveness of sin and for salvation. When the lady got in my face and kept putting her finger in my chest I told her she’s in sin. She argued a half hour and then she started crying and got down on her knees on the sidewalk and asked God to forgive her. What could I do but join her? So yes I’m very much a fool. And a blunderer. “Jesus said repent and believe the gospel” you live by his word and you die by his word. You abide in his word his word abides in you. You obey his word and you preach his word. Long live the Word!
