Why doesn’t God Stop Evil if He is all Powerful and All Good? Christian Apologetics with Jesse Morrell

27788665_963876233776540_7512071167747851648_o

I have a good friend in Missouri named Paul who brings me out to visit and preach every once and a while.

A few years ago during the “Black Lives Matter” protests, Paul was with me on Mizzou when I was punched in the mouth while preaching – a story that made national news with Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and also Alex Jones. That is still my second most popular YouTube video, with 250,000 views.

Brother Paul has joined me on other campuses and streets as well, which you can watch on Youtube. It’s always a pleasure to team up with him.

University of Missouri Kansas City Day One

UMKC4

I had never preached on the University of Missouri in Kansas City before so I was excited to preach there for the first time. We spent two days preaching on this campus.

This trip was about a year ago when Hillary Clinton was still heavily covered in the news. Knowing that many of the students were liberal Hillary voters, I mentioned her name to stir up some attention.

If I were to preach on this campus this week, I’d bring up Jeffrey Epstein since he is the one being covered in the news right now. It would be easy to use Epstein as an example of how billions of dollars doesn’t change the fact of reality that sin naturally tends to misery and death.

UMKC1

It didn’t take long before I gathered a crowd of students around me.

One girl was heckling and cussing and so I said to her, “Watch your language! There might be ladies around.” That’s a line I learned from Ray Comfort a long time ago.

She said, “I am a lady! Want me to pull down my pants and show you?” (Not very lady like).

I said, “How am I supposed to know how you identify?”

The crowd was baffled and dumbfounded. And the girl thought it was hilarious. As you can see from the picture, she jumped for joy at my comment.

.

UMKC3

I wanted to hammer home the simplicity of our message. Heaven is for the righteous. Hell is for the wicked. So in order to escape hell and have a home in heaven, you have to repent of your sins and be born again by faith in Jesus Christ. The Bible teaches works-based damnation and faith-based transformation!

UMKC2

Brother Paul has preached at this location before so he knew exactly where to go.

It was nice to have someone to tag team preach with.

He handled the crowd very nicely.

University of Kansas

KU3

Salvation is a change of future. We were on our way to hell for our sins, then we repented and turned to the Lord, now we are on our way to Heaven. We were under God’s wrath. Now we are under God’s mercy. We were sinners. Now we are saints. Salvation is all about change.

I’ve had many people ask me, “Suppose you are right and we are going to hell for our sins. What are we supposed to do?” I encouraged the crowd, “God has given you the power to change your future by repenting of your sins.”

UK1

Another student asked, “Why doesn’t God Stop Evil if He is all Powerful and All Good?”

I said, God has loving reasons for allowing evil to continue. He could stop it all right now by force and send everyone to hell but He is giving mankind a chance to repent. God has loving reasons for allowing free will to take its course. Without free will you can’t have love. But with free will you have the possibility of sin and it’s hurtful consequences. Life is a test to see what type of person you will choose to be.

On Judgment Day God will separate the wicked from the righteous, so that the wicked will no longer be able to sin against the righteous.

UK2

As I was preaching a student yelled, “What’s wrong with homosexuality?”

I said, “Homosexuality causes brain damage!”

He said, “Prove it!”

I said, “Watch, in a few years if America continues down this pathway of perversion, you’ll have men who think they are woman!”

The students said, “We already have that!”

I said, “See! I told you it would happen!”

That was classic.

University of Missouri Kansas City Again

UMKC21

We returned to the frontline battle at the University of Missouri in Kansas City.

Fornicators: “Marriage is just a piece of paper!”

Preacher: “Gay marriage is just a piece of paper!”

Fornicators: “What? Hey! Why is gay marriage just a piece of paper!”

Preacher: “God instituted marriage – male and female. Marriage has meaning and is holy. But you guys say marriage is just a piece of paper to justify fornication but then get upset when I say gay marriage is just paper! You’re inconsistent.”

.

UMKC22

.
A woman opposed my preaching on campus. She told the crowd “We can’t obey God. That’s why we need grace. That’s why it’s called Amazing Grace. Through grace we can obey God.”
.
But then she insisted, “You can’t be perfect. Sanctification is a process. We all sin.”
.
I told her “Your grace isn’t amazing enough! If it can’t keep you from sin! If it can’t make you perfect! Your grace isn’t amazing at all!”
.
Such double talk – we can’t obey God so we need grace. By grace we can obey God. But by grace we can’t stop Sinning. This makes no sense – the result of a piece meal theology derived from mainstream cliches.
.
I said, “Grace is not a license to sin.” She said “No it isn’t.” I said, “Then stop Sinning!” She didn’t know what to say.
.
She said we need the Holy Spirit to be able to obey God. I said men in the Old Testament obeyed God and were perfect before Pentecost when the Holy Spirit was given. The Bible says the Holy Spirit is given to those who obey God already (Acts 5:32).
.
She thinks that we cannot obey God and that is why we need salvation. But the Bible says that salvation is given to all those who obey Him (Hebrews 5:9).
.
I battled with her over more issues. Modern Christianity has messed her up. She thought the sinful life described in Romans 7 was the Christian life. She said it’s the Holy Spirits job alone to convict sinners of their sins. She said Jesus preached conviction, not condemnation. She said I was a Pharisee but admitted she was a religious sinner. She was wrong on all these points.
.
She told me to “speak the truth in love” but when a homosexual asked her where does the Bible condemn homosexuality, she didn’t want to speak the truth in love! She refused to answer that question because she wanted the praise of the crowd.
.
Pray for her. I think she is convicted of her sins but isn’t yet converted. She hasn’t fully surrendered her life to God, after all, she’s been taught that you can’t. She thinks she is covered by grace if she continues in sin, which is a false gospel. I pray she repents and has overcoming faith with victory over temptation.
..

OneSin

I was telling the crowd, “It takes ONE sin to go to hell. How many sins have you done?” “You deserve hell for every sin you’ve ever committed. If you’ve committed a million sins, you deserve a million hells. Don’t you see why you need Jesus?”

Pray for all the seeds that we planted into their hearts and minds. For many of them, this was the first time they heard these basic biblical truths!

________________________________________________________________

Refuting the Calvinist Argument:

“If Jesus Died for Everyone, Jesus is a Failure.”

The Calvinist argues, “If the atonement was intended to save everyone, Jesus failed. The atonement was intended to save everyone that is actually saved by it. The atonement accomplishes its mission.”

Answer: The atonement was not intended to unconditionally save everyone. Otherwise, you are right, it failed because there are plenty of unsaved people going to hell. In fact, the atonement wasn’t intended to unconditionally save anyone at all, as no man is saved by the atonement without repentance and faith.

The atonement was intended to:

1. Make salvation available to unbelievers.
2. Make salvation actual to believers.

Mission accomplished!

The atonement was intended to be a means by which all could be saved and a means by which all who repent and believe actually would be saved. The atonement successfully accomplishes both of these – it makes salvation available to all men upon certain conditions and actually saves them when those conditions are met.

In light of this, it can be said that Jesus died for those who go to hell without Christ being a failure at all. His death was intended to make their salvation possible while in their sins and unbelief and actual if they met the conditions of repentance and faith.

His death for the damned, in that regard, is not a failure as He accomplished all that He set out to do. It was the sinner who neglected so great a salvation, not Christ who failed to make an atonement for him. It is the sinner who is the failure, not Christ.

1Ti 4:10 – For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, specially of those that believe.

Heb 2:3 – How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation

Heb 10:26-29 – For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

The best fruit our ministry could possibly have is to see souls saved and other laborers raised up. And that is precisely what we are seeing time and time again!

CONVERTED OUT OF ISLAM
Muslim

Please pray for this man! He said he’s a Muslim but our ministry opened his eyes and now he wants to become a Christian, but there would be persecution from his family. This is a public comment he left on my YouTube. He needs your prayers!

Free Christian Book by Jesse Morrell – Cleansing the Temple: A Call to Radical Christianity

frontcoveramazon

CLICK HERE TO GET IT FREE

 “Cleansing the Temple” was written by a young fiery street preacher. Jesse Morrell was only eighteen years old in 2003, preaching in the streets of New England, when he began to write the contents of this book. It is not your typical Christian book. It is a compilation of very passionate articles calling the church of believers to uncompromising holy service to God. This book is primarily about purity, prayer, and preaching. The hope is that this book will cleanse modern Christianity to be the bride that Christ wants her to be.

“It is my prayer and belief this book will be used by God to purify and perfect His church to do the work of the ministry and raise up laborers for the harvest.  It is packed with scripture, anecdotes, historical nuggets, personal examples and testimonies.  It is not necessarily a devotional book but it will challenge you to seek the Lord.  It is not necessarily a book on doctrine but it is full of sound doctrine and will make you want to read your Bible.  It is not necessarily an open air training manual but will prepare you for open air ministry.” ~ Micah Armstrong,  2016

What was Human Nature Designed For? Jesse Morrell Explains

OAOHeader

__________________________________________________

KILGORE COLLEGE, TEXAS

I first started preaching at Kilgore College back in 2005. When I first tried to preach there the campus police tried to run me off. I talked to the administration and they did have a free speech zone and free speech permit. I utilized that process for a few months until the campus police said they didn’t like how long we preached for so they were going to limit it to only an hour. At that point I decided to bypass their free speech restrictions for preaching on campus by simply preaching on the city sidewalk – which was only about 50 feet from their free speech area anyways.

The Chief of Police even spray painted on the sidewalk “the line” which he said we couldn’t cross because then it would become “campus property.” That line only gave us about 2 feet of sidewalk from the city street. He also said that he was going to go to the city of Kilgore and talk to the City council about banning free speech on the sidewalks around campus, just to keep us away he said because he doesn’t like us.

His plans to ban free speech around campus never came to fruition. He later retired and we have had numerous Chief of Police on campus since. The newest Chief of Police has heckled us while we were preaching, which you can see on Youtube. But at this point, after battling with the Police for 14 years, we are finally at the point apparently where we can preach on the city sidewalks around campus without being hassled by the campus Police…. at least for now….

KC

I preached first and gathered an audience that congregated maybe 20 feet away from us. I have learned over the years that if you preach really loud, to get the attention of the campus, you will get their attention but they will also gather far away from you because they don’t have to get close in order to hear you. It’s a type of catch 22. Usually I start off loud enough for everyone to hear and then once I have secured their attention, I tone down the volume and the crowd will come in close.

My friend Joel joined me on campus with his young son, whom he wanted to introduce to campus preaching. Joel was more soft spoken which helped because the crowd circled in closely around him. He answered their questions as his young son held a sign on the sidelines and listened intently.

KC2

Shem is a young man who contacted me through social media and said he wanted to join us on campus. He said he loves watching our YouTube videos and wants to be a street preacher. He joined us on campus with his father, who he said has been a missionary to Mexico for decades.

Shem also did a fine job of addressing the students. I think this might have been his very first time open-air preaching.  It is always deeply encouraging to see others step up on the soap box for the first time!

Since this is a smaller campus, we usually only preach for about 2-3 hours before the crowd disperses. On larger campuses we can hold crowds for longer because there is a population of students which allows for continual fluctuation – new people stop and listen as others leave. But after a couple hours, this campus was pretty dead and we left. Pray for all the seeds that were planted into their hearts!

GOD DESIGNED HUMAN NATURE FOR LOVE 

By Jesse Morrell

Everything God created has a function and a design.

God created human nature.

Therefore, human nature has a proper function and a design.

What is the proper function that human nature was designed by God for?

“For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves” Romans 2:14

The proper function of a thing is determined by its design.

When a thing operates according to its design, it functions properly and orderly.

When it malfunctions, it violates its design and is in a state of disorder.

Our moral obligations (how we should function properly) are according to the design of our human nature.

We were created to love God and love our neighbor. We were designed for love. Love is our proper function.

A holy man is simply a man who lives according to his true human nature – the way God designed mankind to live.

Sin is a malfunction – a violation of our design.

Sin has damaging affects upon our soul, heart, mind, and body precisely because it is a violation of our design.

Our world is in a state of disorder because men choose by their free will to violate their God given nature, just like Adam and Eve did.

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection [στοργος: inhuman, unloving], trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”

2 Timothy 3:1-5

Emphasis: without natural affection [στοργος: inhuman, unloving]

It’s natural and human to be loving.

It is unnatural and inhuman to be unloving.

Human nature was designed by God for love.

LOOKING FOR A TAX BREAK FOR 2019?

Hey friends!

I am very happy to announce that now with the help of a local church, you can donate to our mission and receive a tax break from the government.

While any donations that are sent to us, made out to “Jesse and Krista Morrell,” are still personal gifts (and still a good way to give), any checks that you send to us made out to “Crossroads Community Church” will be tax deductible!

The mailing address is still the same:

PO Box 1527 Lindale Tx 75771.

But whether you make the check out to “Jesse Morrell” or “Crossroads Community Church” will determine tax deductibility.

So if you want to donate to our mission and get a tax break, just write a check to;

Crossroads Community Church
PO Box 1527
Lindale TX 75771.

That’s our ministry P.O. Box and we will deposit those checks into our missionary bank account with the church.

Thanks again to all our supporters!

Your giving is really changing the world and advancing the kingdom of God.

As you can tell from my monthly email newsletters, we are seeing a harvest of lost souls repent and come to Christ!

We couldn’t do all the things that we do without help from the body of Christ!

Rebuking Heretic Pastor of Gnostic Cult Emilio Ramos | Reformed Calvinist Exposed

Gnostic Cult Leader Emilio Ramos, Heretic Pastor of Heritage Grace Community Church in Frisco Texas, tries to “confront” Christian street preacher Jesse Morrell for Free Will Theology.

Emilio epically fails, humiliating himself and exposing his false Calvinist doctrine.

This encounter occurred at the University of North Texas during The National Street Preachers Conference.

CONFERENCE REVIEWS:

“The conference was very fruitful in that several students/truth seekers connected with me via fb afterwards. Righteous seeds were sewn and I believe with all my heart the Lords word will not return void. His works are being perfected in the Saints and I look forward to learning how to be a better light, a better witness, and more faithful in the area of OA Evangelism, the least supported and most needed area of ministry. Thank you for hosting this event in honor of our risen Saviour! I look forward to serving next year.”

~ Kristi (Wylie, Tx.)

“The conference had brought men and women across the country to hear from both recent to seasoned open air preachers. We were edified in hearing from God’s heart what we as street preachers needed to hear as well as things we didn’t think to hear. But we were not left hearers only, no, we were able to put into practice what we did hear and preach and see the work of God move on college students and strangers alike. Praise God I’m looking forward to next year to see the working of God move again.”

~ Sebastian (Tyler, Tx)

“All I can say is that this conference was excellent! Bible centered teaching, preaching, and exhortation. Daytime/nighttime outreaches were well planned and timed. Fellowship with like minded brethren was greatly edifying. Looking forward to next year!”

~ Zachary (Ashland Ky)

“Wonderful conference, we only stayed for 1 full day, but just that day was worth the drive, the hotel, etc!!! Jesse, thank you for allowing me and my friends to not only join you in preaching, but allowing us to be an influence/speak at such a wonderful conference. Grateful for everyone we got to meet and talk to, looking forward to next year!”

~ Jonathan (College Station, Tx)

“The conference was a great opportunity to meet up with other like-minded brothers and sisters in Christ and to learn how to deal with police, hecklers, lukewarm Christians and more. Kyle gave a great talk on the importance of building disciples to carry on the message and to grow the kingdom. The time of fellowship was just the charge my batteries needed to help me be even bolder when I return home to preach. Thank you to all who put the event together, and to all the great people I got to meet.”

~ Buddy (North Carolina)

” I am new in the street preaching community and this conference to me was great. To be around people who have been open air preaching for many years and being able to learn from them and get to know their heart was both a blessing and edifying. So I would say even if your just getting started this conference was a great way to learn from others without having to go through what they did. From handling police to the lukewarm and learning that evangelism and discipleship should go hand in hand gave a solid foundation to start making Christ known in the open air. And also getting firsthand experience with outreaches and solid biblical teachings. True blessing looking forward to next year.”

~ Caleb (North Carolina)

“It was great to meet new open air preachers who are truly saved and love the Lord Jesus Christ and want to serve Him in the beauty of holiness. It was refreshing to be with brethren of like precious faith. Where no pretense was needed.”

~ Jim (Oklahoma)

“Being with men and women who are the on the front lines of the evangelistic front is alway encouraging. I came to the National Street Preaching Conference To learn from there experience and wisdom and heart for the lost. Received a fresh powerful burden of the Lord over the sins of the world seeing the hate in the huge crowd towards Jesus and his word. Praying that men and women will answer the call of Jesus Christ to Preach the Gospel in America and beyond. Come join the National Street Preaching Movement and take our cities back for God.”

~ Kyle (San Antonio, Tx)

“The National Street Preachers Conference was a great opportunity to be poured into and then have a chance to pour out again. Many conferences you attend are set up for you to sit back and learn but this one is set up to put into practice what it is you have just learned right away. This is a meeting filled with doers and not just hearers. It blessed me to see these Saints join together to reach the lost and to equip and counsel each other in wisdom and love. The guest speakers were excellent and the gospel preachers inspiring. Looking forward to next year when I can bring a group I am raising up from my church so they can experience the blessing I did. To God be the glory!”

~ Roger (Nacogdoches, Tx)

“It was an honor to be part of the first national street preachers conference. The Lord used the men in this conference to reawaken in me a burden for proclamation. As a young preacher the wisdom I can glean from these men is priceless. I’m taking back the things I learned into the church to raise up more preachers and to bring more people to the conference next year! Everyone with a desire for more of God should be at this conference.”

MINISTRY REPORT

A brother who lives in Florida has been following my ministry for many years now. He invited me to come out to do some preaching with him on his local campus. He provided the plane ticket, a guest room, transportation to campus, and worked out the permit  with Florida Atlantic University.

The location that the university assigned to the permit was an amphitheater in a part of campus that doesn’t get very much foot traffic. This is often a tactic of liberal administrations to silence conservative preachers who travel through. However, Florida recently had a new law pass that recognized the entire public campus as a free speech area. We moved to a higher traffic location.

This staircase was long and wide, which provided plenty of seating for the students, and also had lots of foot traffic. This was the ideal spot on campus for open air preaching. It didn’t take too long before I was able to gather a crowd.

I began by rebuking the popular sins of the campus. Students looked shocked and dumbfounded. You could tell they were not accustomed to hearing conservative Christian values in public. This gave me the element of surprise which always helps in getting their attention.

A professor on campus told me I wasn’t in the “free speech area,” but I told her she wasn’t in the free speech area so how could she talk to me?

The admin and Police confirmed the whole campus is a free speech area.

It’s reported, “Florida joins Virginia, Missouri, Arizona, Kentucky, Colorado, Utah, North Carolina and Tennessee as the ninth state to pass legislation banning public colleges and universities from relegating student expression to free speech zones. In addition, last month, United States Sen. Orrin Hatch introduced the federal Free Right to Expression in Education Act, which would prohibit public colleges and universities across the country from maintaining those restrictive zones.”

After about thirty minutes or so a Police Officer arrived and told me he was getting complains about the noise. He confirmed that the entire campus was a free speech zone and that he wasn’t telling me to leave but that the building I was in front of complained. I told him that I would turn down the volume to just speaking volume. He wasn’t happy with that solution and instead wanted me to move to another location. Since I was unfamiliar with the campus, I didn’t know if the other location would be good or not so I insisted on staying here and merely turning down the volume.

With normal talking volume, I was able to continue to engage the crowd and keep their interest and attention as I talked about their sins. The crowd continued to grow in size and students were taking their seats and getting comfortable. I could tell that we were going to have a great meeting here. At a location like this, we’d have a crowd of 300 students in no time. And the seating helps them stay calm and tamed.

A student tossed a stone in my direction but didn’t hit me. I joked with the students, “I don’t want to be too hard on him. I suspected he might be a foreign exchange student from the Middle East and he just isn’t used to our culture yet. You have to be culturally sensitive.”

The Police eventually arrived again. This was a new officer who told me that I needed to move locations. They have an area designated for free speech activities, even though the state law has said the entire campus is a free speech area. I finally relented and decided that we would go to the other location. I told the students where I was going and many of them started following me there.

That’s when the other officer came back. He stopped me half way there and told me I was no longer allowed to speak on campus “for your own safety” because he heard a student threw a stone at me. He actually lightly tossed a stone in my general direction but certainly wasn’t seriously trying to hit me. I told the Officer I didn’t feel my safety was in danger so I was making the decision to stay. Then it turned into “causing a disturbance” for which I would be arrested if I didn’t leave.

I think he was upset that the crowd was following me. Their tactics the whole time were to shut me down, first with the volume restriction and then with the location change. When he realized that none of these tactics were working, he tried to kick me off campus entirely. He threatened me with arrest if I didn’t leave. He was unreasonable so I told him I would go and talk to the Chief of Police. He said that is where he was getting his orders from.

I waited at the campus Police Station for a little while and kept my camera rolling the entire time. Eventually an Officer came out with the Chief of Police on his cellphone’s speaker phone. He was very apologetic and assured me that I could speak on campus. I told him that I was moving to the location the Officers requested I move to when I was suddenly stopped and threatened with arrest if I didn’t leave campus. He said, “Nobody threatened you with arrest. No, no, no.” Yes, I said, he did. It’s all on video. He was obviously worried about a lawsuit. But I told him, if I am allowed to preach at the other location without hinderance, that’s all I want. He said nothing was stopping me from going there and preaching. So off we went, though at this point I no longer had a large crowd following me.

I knew I had to fight for our rights to speak on this campus because a victory or a loss here would be a victory or a loss for campus preachers everywhere, who might come traveling through Florida in the future.

This location wasn’t to bad either. There was an area with an overhang which provided some nice shade. It was hot so this was nice for the students and I to have. I was able to regather a new crowd and engage with them for a while. I finished off the day and returned the following day.

On the second day we started off at this new location. There must have been classrooms nearby because every hour this location had heavy foot traffic. The students were still shocked that I was on campus. They would say things like, “How is this allowed? Is he allowed to be here? How is he allowed to say these things?” Especially when I talked about their sins which were politically incorrect to be against, like sexual perversion.

I had good dialog and discussions with all sorts of people.

A student said, “You know you aren’t getting through to anybody, right?” I responded, with an amazed voice, “Are you a mind reader?”

A heckler said, “The Bible was written by mere men.” I said: No, the Bible was written by Holy men as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. The Bible is contrary to the ways of men. If the Bible were written by mere men, it would say ‘Get drunk, get high, get laid.’ The Bible is the mind of God. It says love your enemies. That is not the ways of man.

An old professor with an English accent walked by and heckled me saying “There is no god.” I asked, “Who wrote the genetic code.” All he could say was “nobody wrote it” as he ran away. I then told the students that their professor was an intellectual midget. The specified arrangement of nucleotide bases requires an intelligent mind. You can’t even have a single cell without a genetic code so all life requires the Mind of God.

During my time on campus, it was reported in the News that there was an attack on a Muslim Mosque. This gave me an opportunity to talk about such issues. I explained to the students, Jesus’ teaching of love your enemies is better than Mohammed’s teaching of Jihad. I pray that Muslims realize Jihad is not all it’s cracked up to be. It’s horrible. Jesus’ teaching of love your enemies is better.

As I always do, I shared my salvation testimony. Whenever I tell my testimony, I tell the students, “I was not born a sinner. I was born a baby! But I didn’t stay an innocent baby forever. I grew up to become a sinner.” I emphasize personal responsibility rather than blaming your birth. Liberalism is based off blaming others for your problems.

When people ask me, “Do we have a sinful nature or a good nature,” I tell them, we have a human nature that we can choose to use for good or for evil.

An atheist on campus said to me, “You believe in talking donkeys! That’s ridiculous.” I said, If there is an all powerful God, there is nothing impossible with a miracle like that. But you believe there is no God and that we are all talking animals! That’s ridiculous. Given your view of evolution, in time all donkeys may talk!

Towards the end of the day some new Police Officers came up to me and said they were getting some noise complaints but nearby buildings. I told them that I was wrapping up the day anyways so I’ll take just ten more minutes and then I’ll be done. They made sure to tell me that I didn’t have to leave but I told them it was my plan to leave soon anyways.

NEW FREE SPEECH PROTECTION ON TEXAS CAMPUSES

Following many other states, the Texas Governor just signed a bill protect the free speech of ALL PERSONS on college campuses, calling the open areas of a campus “traditional public forum.”

Many Texas Universities (like the UT System) have not operated this way!

The new law says:

“(2) ensuring that all persons may assemble peaceably
on the campuses of institutions of higher education for expressive
activities, including to listen to the speech of others.
(c) An institution of higher education shall:
(1) ensure that the common outdoor areas of the
institution’s campus are deemed traditional public forums; and
(2) permit any person to engage in expressive
activities in those areas of the institution’s campus freely,”

I am ready to go test this out at UT Tyler. They kicked me off 14 years ago.

My wife and I take turns taking one of our children out individually for a “date night.” I took my daughter Brielle to a local bakery where we ordered some goodies and painted little turtles together. She loved it!

TESTIMONIES

This was a great testimony to wake up to!

Good fruit! Someone else told me:

“Every time I watch your videos, I love Jesus more and more.”

This was a great testimony all the way from Alaska!

MILITANT ATHEIST & FAMILY CONVERTED!

Amazing testimony from a militant atheist who watched our preaching for 2-3 years before converting to Christ!!!

“I came to the Lord in 2016, Prior to this, you were one of the street preachers I kept watching for 2 or 3 years, without ever having the intention of converting. I am now born again, a child of god a disciple of Jesus Christ and a very active street evangelist. The Lord opened my heart, transformed my mind, gave back my wife after 7 years of separation and above all, the Lord gave a new mission in life, to make disciples of all nations.

Glory to God, our heavenly Father.

p.s. I was a militant atheist for all my life, I am 50 years of age now. My 19 year old son came to Christ a few months after me, my 10 year daughter is also a believer, I baptized my wife early this year, the same time we reunited and God is now working on my 21 year old Daughter to complete the family and for us to be a 100% family devoted to the Lord”

~ Rafi

Converted out of atheism! Brought back his wife! Converted his children! Now a Street Preacher! This is a powerful testimony!

CHANGED HIS LIFE!

This was a comment on my sermon “You Might Question Your Salvation After This.”

He said after 30 years in the church this message changed his life!
