Today I returned to the Redlands DMV. I preached this message to two lines of customers (lined up in the front, and one on the side). After this I went to the city of Colton, and spend five hours on foot evangelizing downtown. Within a five block radius I distributed approx. 250 Gospel tracts inside their businesses, to their employees and patrons, to those on the outside, at a motel, in front of Colton High School; and inside a dive bar. This video is an excerpt of over five hours of laboring.
“There was a time when the Church was very powerful. It was during that period when the early Christians rejoiced when they were deemed worthy to suffer for what they believed. In those days the Church was not merely a thermometer that recorded the ideas and principles of popular opinion; it was a thermostat that transformed the mores of society. Whenever the early Christians entered a town the power structure got disturbed and immediately sought to convict them for being “disturbers of the peace” and “outside agitators.” But they went on with the conviction that they were a “colony of heaven” and had to obey God rather than man. They were small in number but big in commitment. They were too God-intoxicated to be “astronomically intimidated.” They brought an end to such ancient evils as infanticide and gladiatorial contest.” ~ Martin Luther King (from his 1963 “Letter from Birmingham City Jail”).
