Free speach paradise

For those who wonder where I've been, I was in New York for the last couple of weeks. We only spent a couple of days in Manhattan and the rest out at the the end of Long Island in Montauk. Keep checking back as I was able to open air preach on the New York subways as well as some one on one witnessing at Penn Station, Rockefeller center and Central Park. I'm looking forward to sharing some audio and pics of those encounters.

Thanks to my wonderful wife Cheryl for putting up with her preaching husband while on our 15th wedding anniversary vacation. Honey, your the best!

Dear Pastor; An open letter

The following article was posted by Tony Miano over at The Centurion Papers blog You can learn more about him on his profile there. He is well gifted in discernment, counseling and evangelism. I hold Tony in the highest regard for being compelled by the truth of the scriptures and his unyielding resolve to honor Jesus Christ. Because of his loving tone yet strong rebuke, I believe this letter is worthy of further distribution. My hope is that it will not only open a few more eyes to what is happening in the evangelical church today, but perhaps serve as an example of how to communicate such concerns. The article below introduces the letter Tony wrote to Pastor Rusty George concerning a troubling message he delivered to a congregation about evangelism.

"On Sunday, September 2, a brother in Christ contacted me. He heard a sermon preached at his church, by a visiting pastor. My friend was bothered by the sermon's content--specifically what he felt was a man-centered approach to evangelism that did not include the proclamation of the Law and the Gospel. He asked me to watch the video podcast of the sermon and he requested my feedback."
