Rev Josh Williamson, the pastor of Craigie Reformed Baptist Church in Perth, regularly takes to the streets to hand out leaflets, talk to passers-by and do open-air preaching.

But yesterday a police officer told him to stop preaching because he was breaking the law.

The officer insisted that he was not allowed to preach and told Josh that he would be arrested if he continued. When Josh said that he would not comply because he was not breaking the law, the officer placed him under arrest for breach of the peace.

VOI ATI PACATUIT Ati mintit, ati avut ganduri rele Priviti, priviti: Daca as putea face un DVD din viata voastra si as putea sa prezint acel DVD seara asta in acest parc al fiecarui gand pe care l-ati gandit a fiecarei zile din viata voastra, ati fugi din acest loc si niciodata nu v-ati mai intoarce pentru ca ati facut lucruri atat de rusinoase de care nici nu vreti sa discutati cu nimeni Este adevarat! Stiu ca este adevarat. De ce? Pentru ca Biblia spune asa si pentru ca si eu sunt ca voi Acum, Dumnezeu este drept si tu si cu mine nu L-am ascultat Am incalcat Legea lui Dumnezeu Acum, cea mai mare problema din Scriptura este aceasta: „Cum poate un Dumnezeu drept sa ierte un pacatos si sa ramana totusi drept?” English: Open Air Preaching

Stalker sermon – open air preaching in Atlanta

from Wretched TV – Thanks to Gabi Bogdan for this video. Open air preaching is an instrumental teaching tool. You may say, „Well, I cannot do what this man does, I cannot preach. I don’t feel comfortable talking to other people about my faith.”

While most of us will indeed not be preachers, we all have a deep love for our family and friends and we care for those around us if we indeed have met Christ and have been saved from an eternal separation form God when we put our faith in Him and trusted Him for our salvation.

That is why we love to watch open air preaching videos. You can see and learn how to reason with someone who is not saved. The greatest tip, which is also shown in this video with Josh Williamson of (Australia)- is to pray and ask God to take over your thoughts and your speech when witnessing to people about salvation.
