Evangelism: The Gospel goes out without being stopped!

Here is a short clip of 3 of our own and another highly dedicated (DAILY) street preacher. They walked 2 miles from the street to the Pier of Santa Monica. Up to Twenty Thousand people heard the word about Sin, the Law of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ! Many people don't believe that this form/method/type/approach of evangelism is not effective, what they do not understand is that the prophets of old who were called to deliver a message to wicked people were told the same thing! Ironically every one of them was killed except John (who was banished to the island of Patmos!)! The truth is - there are MANY ways to share the message of hope as long as it is the true message. Whether you love it or you hate it the Apostle to the Gentiles, Paul - would not dissuade or prevent us if he were alive.

Philippians 1:15-18 (ESV)
15  Some indeed preach Christ from envy and rivalry, but others from good will. 16  The latter do it out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. 17  The former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely but thinking to afflict me in my imprisonment. 18  What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed, and in that I rejoice. Yes, and I will rejoice,  

2 Corinthians 4:3-5 (ESV)
3  And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing.
4  In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
5  For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.
