Free Speech?

August 19, 2012

Last Friday as we set up our booth at the Farmer’s Market we were approached by the market manager and told that we are no longer allowed to approach people, but we must wait to be approached.  Before, we would stand in front of the booth, pass out the million dollar bill gospel tracts and then ask the leading question, “When you die would you go to heaven?”

We were told that different people had complained about us.  We were offending people who just wanted to enjoy a nice evening at the Farmer’s Market.  It’s so sad thinking about the swarms of people that pass us thinking that everything is fine and are out enjoying themselves yet having no idea of the wrath of God that is to come.  As the bible says, “It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”  We were actually told as well we were not to mention hell in our presentation of the Gospel.  So whatever happened to free speech?

As you can imagine, there aren’t too many unbelievers who are eager to come up to a church booth, so sadly our Gospel proclamation was greatly decreased.  We have two more weeks until the end of the Farmer’s market, so we will see how the last market nights go.  Praise God HE is Sovereign and in control!
