Video warning professing Christians at a drugstore, because love warns
On this street I was laboring the Gospel door to door while on foot. I found this video worthy of an upload because it reveals an obvious difference between two men that professed to be Christian. The first one, had a humble contrite heart, and he appeared to be convicted. But the second man that said he was a “born-again Christian,” told me to “Spread your Gospel somewhere else…” He also suggested that I should reach out to those on “cocaine,” rather than marijuana. Marijuana is worse than a gateway drug. Like any other sin, it is a gateway to eternal hellfire.
Last year another brother told me that when he evangelizes with his church, that “Many get saved every time we go out.” That statement was arrogant and unbiblical. The second fellow is the fruit of that type of unbiblical evangelism.
I hope both of these men will know that I loved them enough to rebuke and warn them. Because Christians plant Gospel Seeds (Sperma), not marijuana seeds.
“To be born-again is to enter into a new existence, to have a new mind, a new heart, new views, new principles, new tastes, new affections, new likes, new dislikes, new fears, new joys, new sorrows, new love to things once hated, new hatred to things once loved, new thoughts of God, ourselves, the world, the life to come and salvation.” – J.C Ryle.
Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones said of George Whitefield, “They must not wait for souls to come to them. They must go after souls, and compel them to come in. He [Whitefield] did not sit tamely by his fireside…. He dived into holes and corners after sinners. He hunted out people, and their sin, that he might present Christ to them.”
“No sort of defense is needed for preaching out of doors; but it would need very potent arguments to prove that a man had done his duty who has never preached beyond the walls of his meeting house. A defense is required rather for services within buildings than for worship outside of them. Apologies are certainly wanted for architects who pile up brick and stone into the skies when there is so much need for preaching rooms among poor sinners down below.” ~ Charles Spurgeon
