Boot Camp for Street Preachers

Having tried my hand at street preaching, I respect and pray for those who remain committed to the open air. Here's a group taking it to the street.

Many say we shouldn't preach the gospel this way; it's offensive. I've heard offensive preaching, which is to be distinguished from the offense of the gospel. Offensive preaching is offensive whether it's in a local park or a local church. The offense of the gospel is a good thing wherever it occurs. I'm thankful for the Judge Bork look-alike who regularly visited NC State to preach on the brickyard and corners around the university. I was a scoffer, a hater of the cross, and an idolator at the time, but I'm thankful now!
