Ruben  I’ve been watching some of your preaching on you tube. Let  me just say it is a real encouragement to see someone else willing to go match wits with the hopelessly  unarmed children of the devil . I  am in Davenport IA and there is one other brother 50 miles from here. We support each other at the various pride feasts, parades, marathons, rock concerts or what ever is going on.  We have some homemade signs that I made. They're in a wood frame up on a paint pole. They are presentable but hazardous. I have this vision of one of the visitors we have from time to time  (you know the guys that come see what street preaching is like then run off into the night)..... I can just see one of them dropping one of these 12 pound 12 foot in the air 20 by 40 inch signs on a little purple haired old lady or a car !!!  I already had one of these one visit wonders smack the head light of a cop car with the pole because he wasn't carrying it the way I showed him . Such is life. The cop wasn't too happy but took it in stride praise God !!  That could have been a real mess. I was wondering who makes your signs or if I could order one through you. Hopefully you won't feel like you're giving away trade secrets. The only site that I found that has professionally crafted signs is Dr Ruckman's but I don't have a extra arm, leg or first born layin around for a sign. Hopefully you can point me in the right direction .   Doug Mott

 

Well done Reuben.

I've been hearing good things about you from brothers in Christ. Drive in!

Yahweh bless you and grant you special interest to speak to the hard hearted to change souls and Glorfiy the Name of Yahshua (Jesus).

Hello,

I feel strongly called by God to devote the rest of my life to open-air preaching.  I first devoted my life to Christ & became born again about three years ago, and have studied the whole Bible with great diligence and continue to study it daily, having forsaken all other books..  I came to St. Petersburg, Florida about a week ago from Ohio to preach full-time without pay, and spent the weekend preaching to crowds at Clearwater Beach.  I was in Ohio the past few months preaching door-to-door and working on and promoting my website http://www.primaryproofsofchristianity.com via online forums and other means.  I was hoping to preach at the Superbowl, but am concerned because I don't know where I would be able to park my car, unless I pay $100 or more.  If you will be there, could I meet up with your company?  I am currently preaching by myself, and have been praying to God to connect me with one or more street-preachers.  Please reply as soon as possible, since the Superbowl is coming up very soon.

God bless you,

George

 

    My brother in CHRIST I just want to encourage you to keep up the great work!!  I am a young street preacher I started preaching on the street on October 31 2007.  Best experience ever! I now Pastor a small church and am working hard to preach CHRISt where he has not yet been named!!

 I have practicaly no friends that preach on the street so it is a blessing to see your website and see and hear what your doing!  Any events you have going or gatherings I would love to know about them!!

My tetimony:  I was addicted to oxycontin and heroin, I was using about a $1,000 of it and still had no peace!  I got saved on a Hospital bed in march of 2007 and have not looked back!!  WHO THE LORD SETS FREE IS FREE INDEED!!

I am truely looking for fellowship with other street preachers, my prayers are with you!!

Hello, how are you? What is your 2009 schedule? I didn't see it on your website. Will you be anywhere near the Baltimore, Philadelphia, or New York City Area this year? Thanks.

 

Hello.  I am a Bible believing Christian and I just wanted to ask you, as I have had to ask myself.."Would you rather be right, or offer people life."  Sometimes pointing out people's sins can become about who is right and who is wrong, instead of the more important point that Jesus loves people, and says "Come as you are."  Only the holy spirit can change people, and if we get them on the defensive about their lives, we can actually be a barrier to them ever listening to hear about Christ's sacrifice for them.
Do we care more about what sins people are committing, or that they know Jesus loves them, and wants a relationship with them?  I just think all of us need to be careful that we are not pushing people further away from God, instead of expressing the love of Christ.  I am by no means saying that God is fine with people's sins, but all of us are sinners, and can only be saved by grace.  I think sometimes we can be so excited by truth that we push  truth into people faces that don't yet understand that truth, and can't until they accept God's grace, and we have driven them away, before they had a chance to hear about that grace or get a glimpse of how much God loves them. (This is especially true if the sin they hear being condemned is one that has become an identity for them...the defenses will be up..and they will not listen to any Christians after that.)
Just some things I think we all need to think about...
Thank for listening,
 Gerri Garrick

Hello in the name of Jesus Christ!
I used to do a little street preaching.  And I know people who still
do this actively today.
I'll tell you, you know how the wealth of the US was so gradually
eroded.  Almost no one realized the extent of our financial decline
until about six months ago, when we had began to experience the bank
loss's and the mortgage problems.
My point:  These problems are not over.  And America will soon be a
nation where active and public Christians are treated very badly
(Sarah Palin's church was fire-bombed.  Why?  Almost certainly it was
because she is a strong public Christian.)
I was involved in something a few years ago, in 2002.  A crisis that
came upon my wife and I very suddenly.  At one moment I thought of
calling on the Lord God and then decided that no, I could handle this
myself -- foolish!, in the extreme -- and a half dozen hooligans beat
me up pretty badly.
Several months later I decided to ask our God for help.  And boy!, did
he help.  Right away.  No waiting.  No filling out forms in triplicate
or getting three signatures.  Just stand back.
I see that you are active as a Christian and working for Christ in an
unChristian world.  When you get into trouble, call on Him.

 

I like your website. I just wanted to know what you think about Barack Obama?
Thanks,
Ryan

 

reading about the obama stuff i an article about you was inseted as i read read joy and relief  that such  heaven centered ministries like this still exist. My God must be most glad in heaven and how Satan must be vexed to the core.
I am pastor Simeon a missionary from the u.k to Ghana and i am part of the Potters house christian fellowship. street preaching and making disciples is what we breath with hundreds of branches in the u.s and worldwide head quartered in Prescott Arizona.
hey bro pls remain in the authentic gospel. and keep me posted and in prayer as we battle for the souls of hummanity as God has given us charge in that Glorious Great commission. ps simeon


Dear Reuben,
We are street preachers.  My husband has been preaching for about nine years, and I have been preaching for almost six now.  We recently hosted Jesse and Krista Morrell of Open Air Outreach, as well as Soul Winners Ministry International's Michael and Tamika Venyah and Chris Nada.  We have heard of you through the grapevine.  Soul Winners Ministry referred us to your website "Official Preachers.com" because I have recently written a book entitled "Street Preacher Poems."  It is available online through the major booksellers, but I would like to get it out to preachers, as well as any other people.  It has alot of good sound doctrine in it, and some poems about preaching that I think others might appreciate concerning preaching the hard truth as a form of love rather than this watered down sentimentalism that alot of supposed Christians say we should have.  I was wondering if you'd be interested in displaying a link to this book on your website (after prayerfully considering it, of course).  We don't have a copy to send you right now because they are all spoken for, but we do plan on buying more soon (Lord willing).  You can check out the book a little, and read a poem from it if you go to our website: sinisachoice.com and click on the book link.
Recently, the Lord has led my husband Jay and I to start a ministry, and you can go to our new website for more info about us, as well as check out some preaching videos from You Tube.
Also, I am attaching a poem from the book, entitled "Trumpet Call." Please open it through Adobe Reader.
My husband Jay wants to know if you will be preaching at the Super Bowl in Tampa this year.  If so, Lord willing, we will see you there.  Jay just told me you and your group held the John 3:16 signs in the stadiums.  I never knew that.  That's cool!
Okay, signing off. Let me know what you think.
Sincerely,
Paula Gilbert 

 

Good job on street preaching, Ruben.

Brother Ruben!

I’ve sent you an email on Tuesday the 20th of January 2009 (see the email below) to thank you for the photo-CD you sent me, but it seems it did not went through to you.  I’ve also attached another movie-clip to that email.  I’ve received an email just now from the System Administrator informing me that the mail could not be delivered.  I think it’s because of the size (6MB) of the movie clip that I’ve attached to that email.  I’m disappointed that the movie-clip didn’t go through as I think you would really have liked it. 

But I just wanted to say THANK YOU for the photo-CD!  It is a really inspiring!  It is great to see that I am not alone, but that I am actually part of the great army of street preachers of the last days. 

The next weekend (31st January 2009) is the weekend of the Stellenbosch University Carnival.  Brother Ivan and I plan to preach in Stellenbosch the whole Saturday of the 31st of January.  Thousands of students will party in the streets from early morning till late in the evening.  This is the best time to reach all the students at the same place at the same time with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.  I am really looking forward to it.   The 2 pics below were taken at the 2007 Stellenbosch University Carnival.

I will keep the pic’s coming…

God bless you, brother Ruben!

 

 

My Brother, Thanks.  Your life is blessing this nation!  Like the apostle Paul you are proving that grace was not wasted!

Dave Coke

I like your email address!  Mike

Hi,  my name is Dan McClave, I am a cameraman from Las Vegas, Nevada. I have begun to shoot a documentary on open-air preachers here in Las Vegas. My goal is to create a non-biased, PBS-like documentary showing the reality of what street preachers face day-to-day while exercising their free speech rights. I would like to also do interviews with the preachers, their friends and family, their detractors, and the people they bring a message to. If you are intersted in participating and can give me any information where and when I can get some good footage please send me an email:

 

Thank you for the encouragement and report which you shared on "Heart of the Matter." As always, it was good to have you on the show!

 Every blessing,

Janet

 

Brother, I just wanted to check in with you and make sure that everything is going well.  If there is anything you need, please do not hesitate to ask!

Ruben,
Hi, my name is Daniel and I write articles about UF campus news on my site and submit articles to the Florida Alligator (our campus newspaper).  Frank Warner has been on campus for a while, and I was told that he is affiliated with your organization. I was wondering if you could spare a few minutes for a quick phone interview.  I just had a few questions about the size and scope of you
guys' organization, about how many years you guys have been active, and your long-term goals.  I do not have any theology-related questions, or any religion-related questions at all. If you could help me out, I will gladly call you at whatever number you like, whenever it is convenient for you.
I will send you a link to the story that gets printed up.
With warm regards,
Daniel

Ruben,

Hello Brother Ruben,
I'm writing to you on behalf of First Word Productions, in Los Angeles.
We are in the process of filming a documentary about modern religion
and religious movements in the United States. We are focusing on
different modern cultural events, different views on religion and
spirituality, and traditional religious festivities and rituals.
We want to do a segment on preaching religion to the public. We are particularly interested in interviewing a street preacher to hear their beliefs, their history and their protection of 1st amendment rights. We will be traveling all over the country to collect footage and are extremely interested in capturing this segment for our documentary, probably in February.
Please let me know if you would be willing to speak with me further on
the subject and if there's a phone number I can call.
Thank you for your time.
Roberta Bronson
Field Coordinator
First Word Productions

Hello Ruben,
Your website and the soapa website have been a help to me.
Beside the downloads available from the conference, are there any videos or audio recordings of the conference that I can purchase?
Thank you.  Your brother, Robert

Hey ruben! You seem a bit obsessed about gay sex! Is there a Ted haggard style coming out of the closet party in your future?

Hi Brother,
This is Joe Christopherson from www.burningheartsoutreach.com. I preached
with you at the Gay Parade in Chicago. I would like to go preaching with
you at other events you go to like mardi gras and such. Let me know. God
bless, Joe Christopherson

Hello Mr. Israel,
I am a brother in Christ from Massillon OH. I am just writing because I read about your endeavors with the homo parades and I am glad you are a public witness to them about that being a sin and about the grace that Christ offers to them. I am also glad at your excellent attempt to expose their hypocrisy as they have been sneering at christians who are supposedly "intolerant". I would be interested in any updates you would have on your case. It would be great to have you out here to minister with you. I guess we have kindred spirits, or both have a desire to get the word out
publickly as much as possible.
Sincerely,
Steven Banks

i want to be connected with you .we are mission network linking ministers and missionaries to ministry opportunity to win souls worldwide.please link us to mission field in countries.
we also want hold a conference tell us how will can send the training to you.
thanks

HI,
I received a news alert that a preacher in Florida (James Knox) sent to our home church about the Gay Pride Parade in Los Angeles.  A lady at my church forwards emails to those of us away from our home church.  I just wanted to say thank you for your stand.  It encourages me that we should defy the enemy  and stand up for Jesus.  There is no shame in it and it makes me so glad to see the way you are going about it with dignity and honor.
I had a supervisor recently who took up for his "gay" cousin and it is so true that they do accept what we believe even though they want everyone to accept their disobedience.  God Bless your efforts.
Donna Coon

Thank you for standing up for my rights as a strait bible believer. You are not alone, my prayers are with you.

Jared Hardin 

Greetings! My name is Brian Pace and I am from Northeast Mississippi. I enjoy your website and keep up the good work. Now I have a personal question. I am huge on Christian Outreach with Gospel Tracts and through the Internet. Also I independently protest against Abortion (Child Murder) on a regular basis. Of course I try and find others to engage on these issues. However they keep ignoring me on numerous occasions. I have tried to get numerous Christians and Pastors to go out into the community and Spread the Gospel Of Jesus Christ. They either ignore my concerns or lie to keep me away from them. Now I am not a Green Alien and I wasn\'t born on Planet Mars. I am a sinner saved by grace and I have taken up my calling to Spread the Gospel Of Jesus Christ in public places. I used to think that people didn\'t like me. Now I realize that was a selfish way of looking at this situation. I realize these people are ignoring the message. My question is the following. How can Christians refuse to Spread the Gospel Of Jesus Christ in their personal lives? Faith Without Works Is Dead! Right!

Why do you believe the bible when it was written by some randomers some 2, 300 years after the events it talks about actually happened?!  Seriously where's the logic??
You may want to read a book by an extremely clever man called Richard Dawkins.  He actually knows what he's talking about, see. Haha, which is more than can be said to you!
Well, I know all you would say in response to me is that I will burn in hell or whatever and that's why I didn't give you my real email address, although I am seriously considering using that masterpiece there.  Sort thyself out, religion is the cause of a HUGE amount of conflict.

Hi Ruben,
This is Alex, I was talking to you at the gate of Cornerstone about various things.  I said I would email you the thing about the Influence of Music and some other stuff and now I'm getting around to doing that :).

I thought Cornerstone was okay because I like camping and being with the friends I had there.  Except for that and for a few bands most everything else there wasn't good and wasn't truely Christian I thought.  The event really shouldn't be advertised as a Christian event because the people who run it seem to care about money and there is no control over what bands come there and play at the generator stages and the Satan worshipers that they attract.  At least some of the bands that are hired by the Cornerstone staff to play at the main stages I don't think are really that Christian either.  I though Flatfoot 56 was okay (as far as I know, nothing obviously unChristian that I noticed) but I don't think the band Demon Hunter has to look very far to find some demons.  Just my opinion :)

I heard that cornerstone was kind of overrun by metal bands around 2004.  I suppose the event was somewhat better back ten years or so ago but I wasn't there.  I guess the Satanic influence was somewhat less back then.  I think for the most part metal music and Christianity don't go together, except in certain cases where the music style follows the lyrics and they switch to metal when talking about being attacked in the song.  But that's about it and I didn't see any creative music styles where the beat and music style follows lyrics at Cornerstone.  The intelligence level of most of the people there at Cornerstone seemed a bit lower than average.

It seems there were a lot of people there who want to "not conform", which is a good think.  But the problem is what do you do instead if you want to not conform?  It seems like being stupid and dressing like an idiot is how they want to not conform to the world.  It's sort of like a false, counterproductive outlet has been created for people who don't want to conform, where it's worse than before.

I feel bad for all the people who came to Cornerstone with no discernment and think that just because it is "Christian" that everything there is all good and they can do whatever they want to have fun and it's all safe and good.

Your sign was making people mad so we know that a lot of people who despise righteousness were attracted to this event.  I think you shouldn't have put masturbation/lust on your sign because I think it's an indirect sin.  It's wrong because it leads you to sin and but I don't think it's a sin directly. So it kind sends a confusing message when you have a list of sins on the sign and then listing something that doesn't fit exactly in the same category.  See I don't think it's wrong for a man to desire to have a virgin to be his wife, but when Jesus talked about lust I don't think he meant quite the same thing.  People think when they see lust on the sign that it's wrong for a man do desire to have a woman to marry so I think it sends a confusing message.  That's just what I think, I've thought about it a lot but that still doesn't mean I'm right.

I enjoyed talking to you at Cornerstone.  It was nice knowing that there is someone else who is concerned about the bad things that were going on in there.  There was another guy with a sign, I can't remember his name, but he said there was a band passing around a homeless 16 year old girl in their van like a prostitute there at cornerstone.  There was a time in America when the people wouldn't have put up with that going on, but now nobody cares.  But now that we don't care and have neglected our responsibility as Christians God is still not going to let it go on.

I'm going on a weekend trip to Chicago this weekend but I'm scared because now they're talking about Chicago being the ideal place for another false flag terrorist attack to attack Iran or something now on the Alex Jones show while I'm writing this!
Alex

 

Ruben,What a great report!  I preached today for 30 minutes outside
Rochester city hall. I won't be able to preach this Saturday at the
parade because our family is going on a needed vacation, but next year
Lord willing.  If you are going to be close to New York State ever please let me
know, I would love to come and do street preaching together. I am
friends with Kerrigan Skelly and Jesse Morrelle. I will lift you up in prayer for this weekend.  Please stay in touch!
In Christ,
Doug Renz

I was wondering where your next open air preaching mission will be. Please keep me informed. I am saving up my dollars to get going by the end of summer. Please keep me in prayer.

Praise God for the work and the victorious report Brother Israel !!

Thanks for the update, guys!  Ruben, my wife and I almost died laughing over your report!  You really have a great sense of humor, and it shows in the way you write!  What we do is serious business - souls are in the balance - but it helps to have a good sense of humor at times.  It was great to read of how God rained on those parades simultaneously - in Atlanta and Chicago. Did Bible Believers have anyone in SF for theirs?  Speaking of Calif., my wife pointed out to me how all those fires in CA were started by lightning...an act of God!  Take a hint, CA!  Back in the 70's Oregon had bumper stickers that read: "Don't Californicate Oregon!" (in relation to all the Californians moving to the state - including my family).  With this gay marriage business of late, that should become every other state's plea - with the exception of MA, of course - regarding California's precedent.

Great to see the Atlanta Shame Parade was pretty much considered a flop, Dick!  And way to go confronting Obama's former church, Ruben!  I could just imagine the scene, choir on the street and all.  That's one way to get the church to reach out beyond its four walls!  As far as that Cornerstone deal, those kids must have gotten quite a shock over you guys!  This is the first time I've heard of street preachers preaching at a "Christian" event.  So many so-called Christians will run to entertain themselves under the guise of "worship," but to get them to run to the world to confront sin and preach the cure - well, good luck!  Besides, many of those bands are practically idolized while having no accountability to a spiritual leader, and many are living double lives because their basically in it for the fame and fortune.  Way to go!

Brother Reuben-Thanks and praise our Living God through Jesus the same
rebukes came upon the homo parade here in Atlanta-rain, lightning that
could've killed many without the tall buildings grounding the effects, 
a human idol falling off a float and arms & other pieces breaking off &
flying everywhere in front of us, and (the best we could figure) an
Episcopalian hummer-chanter attempting to drown out the TRUTH preaching
with his noise, soon giving up in frustration and anger as he & Satan's
angels departed.  I rebuked him for his anger as he walked off and
turned and asked for forgiveness.  I told him God is the one he needed
to repent to and the battle continued at the park with much
consternation from the crowds  Many testimonial DVDs of  homo turning to
Christ were given out , with tracts and other printed testimonies of
repentance & rebukes of the DEATHstyle of  abomination being displayed
taken and  no DVDs & minuscule # of tracts on ground as we departed.
There were only a few physical altercations  that were soon thwarted as
the hatred spewed away!
Blessings to you all in your ongoing ministries of our One True Gospel!
Bro. Chap Williams

Im Sick to know that people like u exsist!!!! God does not put judgements on people people put judgements on people! God loves all of his children! I pray for you and your family! I hope That one day your life depends on getting saved by a gay or lesbian! GOD is love!!!!! Your website is a disgusting way to bring attention to yourself!!! GOD BLESS!!!!!!!!!!

I believe homosexuality is sin, and to me horribly disgusting. But also remember that there are other sins that God hates equally, and all of them equally. I have no problem with a web site dedicated to why homosexuality is wrong, but all I ask is that you don't go out and street preach with signs proclaiming: God hates fags/homosexuals/queers etc. This will turn off any man or woman who is a homosexual, becuase there are some trying to leave that sin who want to come to God, but won't because they think God hates them (which he does);but they need to know that if they come to God they can recieve God's Son. I believe all sin should be made known during street preaching and not just specifically homosexuallity. If you do not agree with I ask you to give me reasons why, because maybe I am wrong.

Bro. Ruben, thanks for the update on the ongoing battle of light vs. darkness. Will you be preaching near my home in the near future?  Also it looks like Athens, OH aka  Ohio University will be my main stay to preach on a regular basis, had a good time there a couple weeks age. Tell Dean I said hello .  Be praying for you.  Bro. Ray

May God protect you Ruben.
Praise Jesus! Preacher George
Mark 16:15 (The Holy Bible KJV)

Ruben...In the words of Moses...Get thee hence Satan...

I rebuke YOU Ruben...In the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ...I rubuke you!

 

Sir, I truly believe that you and the other preachers here reach far more lost and confused sinners than you will get to know on this earth. I've reflected many times on what it must be like for a street preacher to go out day and day again and face the laughing, mocking, raging, and ridiculing voices of a multitude that do not even know they are lost.
At times it must seem so empty and in vain.
The night I saw you standing on a street corner, there were THOUSANDS of people streaming towards a very large rock concert. You stood alone, a one or two others that I think were with you by your side, and you confronted each person who passed you.
"Worship God, not Mick Jagger."
Giggles, sneers, people putting their effort into getting past by trying to forcefully ignore you...
... but not one person passing you did not hear the sound of truth when you lifted up your voice that night. They may not have understood it. They may not have wanted to hear it. But like a silver bell ringing in a concert hall... the sound is unmistakable.
I believe God gave us the ability to hear the truth. From that point on, we can ignore it or seek it, and that is our choice. Many walked by you that night and chose to ignore you, but I don't think one single person passed you who did not hear the truth in your preaching.
You were a one or two preachers who touched 10,000 that one night in less than an hour... and that is quite remarkable.
Thank you.

Bro Ruben, thanks for the info and pics. Yes, if you could contact me when there are local events I'll see what works out. Generally, because of ministries on Sundays the Pastor has everyone working in their ministry at church. It all depends on the time needed to prepare; visitation, soul winning, studying, etc. I like the street preaching ministry and events. I'm always stirred when we go down to the Homo parade and take a stand. I would like to see if other events can be fit in with everything. Send me all the info and I'll see what works out. We will keep you all in our prayers as you all endeavor to rally around the banners and preach the WORD.
 
We love ya'll,

Bro Tony

Hi bro Ruben,

I just realized your email might be in my "junk"inbox cuz my msn hasn't been told you are not "junkmail".

 Thanks for replying. I am making my own banners and sandwich boards, but thanks for the offer. I figure the police will move in and tell us to leave so they don't have to do their constitutional duty to PROTECT us and our freedom of speech rights from the violent intolerant demonpossessed "moon god" worshippers. There are supposed to be other Christians (evangelists) gettting together to coordinate  and get on the same page for one to ones, and gospel tracting, but I am afraid we will ruin that for them if we openair preach, lift high our banners, and boards, etc. It will most certainly be intense spiritual warfare, amen? Please, if you remember, to sprtead the word around your fellowships to pray for this festival so God can get His Word out there like it should be: with shock and awe! Hallelujah!

ALso, please tell me what your banners say! I am curious.

yours in the battlefield,

Tom

PS: I really enjoy your website and stuff at SOAPA's websight. Thankyou for loving God with faithful actions to prove your love, brother. You encourage, inspire and enTHUS me. 

Bro Ruben,
Thanks again for coming out and taking a stand against the the homos in San Diego. I'm always stirred up during and after working with ya'll. I wanted to find out if you could send me a schedule of events that I may attend with ya'll. Sundays always makes it hard for me because I have ministries to serve in at the church. However, outside of that I can be more flexible. I've always wanted to do more with ya'll and with school behind me I'll have some more time on my hands to be able to do that. Well, brother we will keep ya'll in our prayers. Pray for us as we continue to take steps for the Lord and endeavor to be sure of God's will.

Hey,
I have been awake since 2001.  I live in the northwest.  God had burdened my heart as he touched me deeply in 2001.  I am a believer in the word and am against the post modern garbage that is happening.  I have never seen such contradiction to the gospel of the cross ever.  I preach Rom 6v6 and am against the natural life.  I continue to bear about in my body the death of Christ, so that his life can be revealed.  God doesn\'t want to change us , as much as he wants us to exchange our life for his life moment by moment as we choose to reckon ourselves on Rom 6 vs 11.  I want you to know bro I am behind you all the way.  I would love to have more info to help me fight  for the faith here in Portland.  I am 29 years of age and am willing to have Jesus live and speak what he will as I bear the cross.  I have preached on the streets for 3 years.  I don\'t wear a sign but they get the point.  I have had everything happen to me.  I am married and have 3 kids and spend many lonely nights interceding.  The enemy is coming in full force to put many to sleep.  The sad thing its with the people you love the most.  But I say at any cost lord.. I continue to reckon my natural affection dead and continue to speak the truth no matter what pain it causes me.  I am so thankful that I found this web sight.  My hope is that we can get into contact

Ruben, I like your style I live and work in central CA in the San Jose area I would like to join you the next time your out here.

 Thank You and GOD Bless,

Victor Ashbaugh

This is extremely encouraging!!!

Ruben,

Steve Jones here, the fellow soldier of Jesus Christ which warred with you against the Sodomite Parade in Chicago. I just wanted to express my sincere appreciation for the LORD raising you up in this ministry for which you are called according to His name, and for His name's sake.  May He receive all the praise, honor, and glory, both now and forever more.  Please keep me on your list of soldiers for Jesus Christ when you come to Chicagoland.  Brother James Thomson said he missed not being present to rebuke the sodomites with the other Saints.  Hopefully he will be able to join next year, if the Lord tarries until then.  Lord willing, I will always have time to stand in the gap with those few others called according to His purpose in this adulterous and perverse generation we live in. 

Please pray for me.  I need more of the Lord Jesus Christ, and less of Steve Jones.

Thanks Bro.  Respectfully, Steven R. Jones

You're so FAT! I thought gluttony was a sin! You are so disgusting! You are also bad at preaching. Really bad. You have no proof for your beliefs, so stay out of the streets! Would you want me protesting at your church, telling you that if you don't believe in aliens and the boogie man, you'll go to hell? You redneck loser. Gluttony is so SICK SICK SICK SICK SICK SICK SICK SICK and a SIN SIN SIN SIN SIN! You're disgusting! Sinner! You're like a pig with a beard and a stupid sign. fatty fatty fatty fatty fatty!! You should share food and not be so gluttonous! SICK SICK SICK SICK SICK SICK SICK SICK SICK
GET A LIFE LOSER!

Hello, I am trying to contact a member of your group named Israel. I met your group at our gay parade in Albuquerque New Mexico. I was one of the Christians your group joined when the parade was nearing its end. If you can help me get in touch with him, please respond to my email.

Ruben, I have seen you for the past three years at the Chicago gay pride parade.  As a representative of Gay Chicago magazine I would like some of your time to do an over the phone interview.  The questions will be non-combative.  My objective is to create a dialogue between you, your Church, and the Chicagoland gay community.  If you are interested in another venue to get your message out, feel free to call me

Ruben,
I found your site and it is fascinating and edifying but I have a question. I have seen much criticism of the cults, sodomy, the occult etc. but have failed to note any mention of Romanism. Where do you stand on this subject e.g. what do you think of the view held by some churches that the pope is Antichrist ; also the various non biblical beliefs of the RC system such as purgatory, worship of Mary etc.?

Hey, gay boy. Get a life. The obvious opression of your own homosexual tensions is not only sad but pathetic. Grow up.

Dear Reuben, Do you have anything planned for Washington DC yet? Let me know if you do. I want to join you. Yours in Christ, Bob Silling

Shouldn't we will souls to Christ with love?
Will protesting against their lifestyle make them want to see this special thing we have?
I say win them over with love, then let them know they are doing wrong.
Remember all sin is the same in Gods eyes. Your sin is no different then theirs.

Ruben,

Loved your appearance on my show.

Keep my contact information and remind me to get you back on.

I’d like to get you on a couple of days prior to the Chicago parade.  And then in the midst of it as well.

Hi, I read about you being rejected from the homosexual pride walk in Chicago. I just wanted to say that I agree you should sue them, because its a matter of our rights too. Actually, its a matter of every man's rights whether they be Christian or not. I am tired of hearing about what will "offend," homosexuals while nobody cares about what offends us. I live in California now, but I come from Gary Indiana which isn't far from Chicago. I wish you the best, and please let me know what I could do in my own community. I've gotten a lot of heat for preaching against homosexuality on my website, they said that I was hateful towards them... When I was actually very loving, just trying to warn them of all of their sin and tell them to repent. Every homosexual I have encountered (Except one who was looking to be healed of it,) thinks that everything we say against the sin is like a hate crime or something. If you\'re interested in seeing my site, here\'s the link: www.GodsLovingKindness.com if you go there, then please sign my guestbook.
Your brother in Christ,
David Moore


The Gay Pride parade (or whatever you bigots feel like calling it these days) is for people who are proud of being part of the LGBT community, or proud of supporting it. Take a moment and look up \'proud\' in your Funk & Wagnalls; you’ll see the definition is quite different from a website which claims "homo sex is a threat to national security." That, dear man, falls under 'hate', and this country doesn't smile upon individuals in participating in Gay Hate (or Black Hate, or Catholic Hate) parades.

i notice that it states in Ex 35:2 that you're to kill those who work on the sabbath(Saturday)Lev25-55 states that you can own slaves from the neighboring nations
And the Bible states that eating shrimp is a sin,because i eat shrimp(: Thanks for reminding us that God\'s word is eternal and unchanging. You’re a bunch of religious wackos.

I really hope that this turns out to be a major lawsuit in the U.S. Supreme
Court. Why couldn't this have taken place before? This is *EXACTLY* what
is needed at this time. I will be praying for victory.

Brother Ruben, my name is Jim Donahue, I saw your name and picture in World Net Daily. I’m a professional sign maker, and a Christian. I make Christian signs (not just little ones) and display them in my area. I wanted to make a website where other Christian signmakers could download free vector files for these sort of signs.
 Most free Christian clipart on the internet is raster type (won't work in many sign machines) and its "warm fuzzy". Not so on my site, so be forewarned :) Somehow I don't think you'll be offended. In fact, I'm hoping you'll find a ministry there with very similar intent as your own.
 I'm in the middle of a workday, so I can't check out much on your site, but will see more later. My site is:
http://www.twoedgegraphics.com

Because during the Spanish Inquistion your kind were persecuting Jews and forcing them to become "conversos" now you're doing it to gays.

YOU GO GET EM BRO.YOU ARE COVERED IN PRAYER.GOD BLESS YA

Ruben,
Keep on pushing.  My wife did not believe me so I took her to the trial in Philadelphia for the Christians who were arrested for reading the Bible on the street during a Sodomite parade.
Every minister (sick) there was a Sodomite.  We talked to several ministers and they all refused to stand up for Jesus. Actually instead of ministers they were actually all "corporate presidents" and they had previously 'signed away all of their rights', like Jacob.  By 'public policy' they were required to support Sodomites! They were handing out rainbow stickers.  I almost took one to put on the bottom of my shoe, but there were armed law enforcement (no police in Pennsylvania) thugs every ten feet in the hallway around the whole floor and they had the courtroom ringed as well.  They all supported Sodomites even if they were not all Sodomites. They had selected a very small courtroom and as the crowd lined up they said they were not going to let anyone in other than family of the accused.  At the last minute they opened a side door and about six people got in, including my wife and I. The crowd was mostly Sodomites with some family members of the accused and a few Christians Jesus let in to watch the circus some had planned. I had taken my large Bible with "Holy Bible" in very large gold letters on the spine.  I made sure to hold it so the Sodomite law enforcement agents had to look at it.  They glared and were not happy.  Oh well, kind of a free country. They showed a police video that made it clear that the Christians were the victims. They were being advised by Lynn Abraham (what a misnomer) executive director of ADL and the Sodomite justice department. These folk were somewhat saved by the fact that they were part of a documentary film and Mike was wearing remote video and audio recording devices and law enforcement could not confiscate their evidence. The woman still wearing her bathrobe seated above in judgment said Christians still have rights and we must be tolerant of folk who read the Bible just like we need to be tolerant of the Nazi's and the KKK.  What audacity!
Even with this, the crowd was shocked that the Christians were set free.  The gasps from the Sodomites and the facial expressions and body language of the Sodomite law enforcement agents was a sight to see.  They were furious. Please be careful of liars, you might call them licensed attorneys.  They are controlled liars.  When you hire one, you admit incompetence and become a 'ward of the court' (Corpus Juris Secundum 1980 version book 7, pages 801 and 802 - attorney and client).  These folk may be required to sell you out! If you read their 'rules of professional conduct' you will see that they have sworn allegiance to fictions created by man not the Creator of Heaven and Earth and all therein.  There is no such thing as a Christian attorney, no matter how much they believe they are! Sodomites demand tolerance until they are in charge, then "free speech" is the right to do as they say or else! If you go to court, demand and "Article III Judicial Court of Law", do not accept an 'administrative law' proceeding that only appears to look like a Court of Law. God's word can not be silenced!
Hal le lu Yah
May the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob bless you and keep you.  Until we meet again, I bless you in the name of Jesus.  May he lift up his countenance to you, may he bless you and keep you and make his face to shine upon you, and may he give you peace and grace.  Amen.
God Bless you Ruben,
John

Dear Brother Ruben,

My name is Petar I am 36 years and I am from Norway, I met you at the Beal Street Blast this month. Larry Keffer introduced me to you and your fellow workers in the ministry. The Blast was a life changing experience for me. I came to the Blast for the equipment and training to start up a street preaching ministry in my city Oslo, Norway. I am setting up a ministry and I will hit the streets this summer. But I am very alone doing this here in Norway in the manner I have seen you brothers do there at the Blast. I need some more training and extreme experience, so I wonder if it is possible for me to come over to US and join you for some hard hitting preaching training later this summer/autumn?  Do you have a ministry schedule?

And do you have banners and other useful things for the street as T- shirts, caps, jackets for sale?

God Bless you, and grace and empowerment for all ministry

Bro. Petar Keseljevic

i defecate on your christ
i smear fecal matter onto your bible
set it ablaze in front of your crying children
and i ejactulate my righteousness onto your crucifix
your god is filth
you are filth
you have so much hate in the abscence of your heart, and u love to spit it
so heres some of mine
i hope you die n agony

I have just come across your website.  My son & I have been actively involved in street preaching for almost 2 years now in Manchester, UK.
We believe very much as you do on the subject of the preaching of the Gospel.  We preach out loudly against all sin, against religiosity and that truth is ONLY found in Jesus Christ.
Manchester is probably the "Gay" capital of Europe, has a large Moslem population, numerous mosques, temples, and churches of every shade of theology.  It is probably the nearest thing to Corinth I know. We denounce all religions, including "Christianity" as NOT being the way to God--ONLY in Jesus  Christ can we find God! It is crazy, but most people who approach us and complain about what we are doing are so-called "Christians"! We have faced some anger from one Imam who was holding a small infant and threatening to hit my son.  I couldn't believe the guy!
We have had a Rastafarian try to stir up the crowd against us, so we made a tactical withdrawal.
We have never been criticised by homosexuals, and some Moslems have even encouraged us to carry on what we are even though we denounce Islam and Mohammed! We confront Communists who promote their agenda, denouncing the US and UK whilst defending, and supporting, Hamas and Hezbollah against Israel. Manchester is a vile place, a confused place, and an exciting place to preach the message of redemption! I realise that we may not see eye-to-eye on everything.  The churches in the UK have largely gone down the road of compromise, some to the extent where they will encourage people of other religions to promote their doctrines and have fellowship with them. The UK churches have given themselves over to "Toronto/Pensacola", the Pro-Toronto Alpha Course, Word of Faith/Prosperity, Pro-Catholic Charismaniacal movement.

I am deeply concerned with a "Christian" that will allow a man like Matthew Bourgault to be broadcasted on your website.  I saw one of his so-called sermons on Friday at East Tennessee State Univeristy.  This man is filled with nothing but hate and what he "preaches" is hate, this man turned more people to the devil faster than anyone I have ever seen.  Maybe you should think twice before supporting him or maybe you might want to really think if you are a true Christian if you believe this hate filled message.
Sincerely, Scharina

Hello Ruben,
I just wanted to let you know that I like to share Jesus and minister in the streets. However, the way your group goes about doing this is an embarrassment to me and all the Christians in the world. If you are not praying for divine appointments or you are not being led of the Holy Spirit, all you are doing is in vain and will be burned when put to the test.
Although hell is mentioned more than heaven in the Bible, souls are not saved by telling every person you see that he or she is going to hell for something (even though it very well may be true). It is important to first connect with the person, and make them realize that we were all once sinners, but Jesus wants to pick us up and give us life in his way (which is far better than our plans).
I am praying for your ministry and that God will tender your heart and show you how to minister in a loving way that will be led of the spirit.
-Sincerely, Doug 

I live in the Tifton/Moultrie Ga area. I've been atempting to locate a street preaching ministry so that I can join them. Do you happen to know of any?
D. M. Bass


My husband and I are very interest in learning more about your ministry (my husband is at work presently, which is why I am sending you this email instead of him), I have visited your website, and was blessed by the preaching/teaching found there. We just have one question before we inquire more....are you in any way in association with Ron McRae? please advise, thank you so much for your time.....God Bless, your Sister in Christ

Reuben,
I'm sorry I didn't get back to you sooner--I got layed off of my job, so I
had to find another job before I felt ready to pursue this.  My name's Seth
McAdams, I'm 22.  I grew up in China as an MK (missionary kid) and speak
Cantonese and Mandarine.  I became a Christian when I was very young (maybe
5).  I went to a community college for a couple of years, and there I
started the only Christian fellowship on campus (there's a huge gay and
lesbian group there, and they're very liberal--the school did a lot to
prevent me from advertizing), although it was small.  I also witnessed to
several people (friendship evangelism); I'm sure I had an influence, but
none of them ended up believing.  I was raised with the friendship
evangelism idea.  I guess there are two main things that changed my view and
showed me the need for a more powerful method.  The first thing was that I
started reading biographies of the great evangelists: John Wesley, George
Whitefield, Charles Finney, D.L. Moody, Billy Sunday and Billy Graham, as
well as the most powerful Chinese evangelist that ever existed--John Sung (I
was named after him, when I was 1, but I didn't know who he was until a year
ago).  I learned a lot from those books, but I don't have time to tell you
about it now.  The second thing was that I worked on two fishing boats in
Alaska (I'll never do that again).  A lot of the people had been to prison,
or were drug addicts, and I even met a murderer on the second boat.  Of
course, everyone realized right away that I was a Christian, and especially
on the second boat they loved to relentlessly ask me questions in order to
make fun of me because of my life-style, and endlessly pressure me to live
the way they lived.  God gave me the grace to stand firm almost completely
(a few times I didn't say the right thing)  I realized that a person needs
to be extremely firm and forcefull just to stay pure, so how much more
forceful would a person have to be to spread the gospel effectively!  Let me
give an example: one time when there was no work they tricked me into
believing they were watching an innocent movie in a room, and asked me to
join.  I walked in, and once I glanced at the screen I turned away, and said
"I'm not watching this," and walked out.  They asked all kinds of "why"
questions to delay me, and at the same time positioned a guy at the door to
block my escape.  I ignored their questions and pushed the guy out of the
way and walked out.  Of course, often it's good to be gentle, but in that
case anyone who believes in "always being nice" would have never even gotten
out of the room!  I hope you believe me--there was even one guy who
threatened to kill me, and had to be helicoptered out of the boat.  Anyway,
these experiances showed me that it's truly a powerful battle between two
unmixable forces: darkness and light.  And if darkness is powerful, we must
present holiness and repentance even more powerfully.

Rubin  my freind -- i saw you preach finally ! it was on youtube .com   my son and i watched it . i love your style . its great !it seems that the Lord has opened alot of doors latley for me in something new --acting . i was just in a movie playing a preacher . the director gave me total freedom to write my own sermons . it got known and he just came in from portland and hired me to play a preacher in a new movie that he is filming in texas. i never acted before in my life . my website is getting hits and people are into my testimony . lots lof evangelism going on --i call it STEALTH . very sneaky . i am performing at a cult called UNITY  here . they totally deny the cross . i will give away my cds free , and on the back will be my website --so they will read my testimony . SHOCK EVANGELISM    AND STEALTH  EVANGELSM --whatever works ! rocket

Wanted to say it was good to meet you at the conference center today. I was the one that was the "traitor" labeled so by the devil heckling you. I told you that I was converted through that book, Struggle to Peace.

 If you would like, this is a link to a place where you can watch the show I was on last week where I told my story. It is the one labeled "conversion story" on 3/23/07. It is about three down in the blog page.

Anyway, very good to meet you brother. Checking out your page. Like what I see. People need the truth.  Grace and peace,

Mark 16:15

Ruben,

 

Thank you for your generous offering.  You are always a big help when I come to Southern CA.  I enjoyed preaching with you and Paul.You made a great report for my email newsletter.

I trust that you will be able to come to the SOE.

 Jed Smock

 

For many years, I was in the limelight whilst Doug stood on the sidelines
sorta in the limelight but not really.  :-)  God took me from that position
through a series of events.  I'm not saying I was always happy about that
and even cried a few times but I still felt the Holy Spirit saying, "Trust
me."  He told me that Doug would become greater and I would become less in
terms of being known in the gates.  I KNOW that my place is to intercede and
I get so much encouragement from the Lord to continue on.  Intercession
connects the dots that would never be connected otherwise.  If there were
any area that would be "according to God's will" it would have to be seeing
souls saved.  So I know that I am praying according to His will.  I am so
encouraged by what God is doing!!  I am so comfortable being out of the
limelight and just being behind the scenes doing His work.  I will fast and
pray Tuesday.  I am also asking 45+ very godly women that I know to fast and
pray for the team as well.  Be assured, the fervent prayers of the righteous
availeth much!
In His Love,
Vera

 

All I can say is ruben is a sorry example for a Christian

 

I have always held the belief that we as Christians are a better witness to others when we humbly live our lives and love others.  I have had many discussions with my friends about my beliefs, and I believe that the way that I witness to them is a better ministry than the hateful things that Matt "The Hammer" recently shouted at James Madison University.  People automatically stop listening to what he says after he calls them whores, etc.  I was just reading my Bible, and came upon this verse.  What do you think of it? Paul writes to the believers in Thessalonia.
"Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody." 1st Thessalonians 4:11-12
I think that my life is a model of this, while ministries such as yours contradict it in every way.

Brother Ruben!

 I’ve got the tapes! I’ve received them Wednesday the 24th and watched 3 of the tapes the same evening and the rest last evening.

 Yes, I really enjoyed every minute of them! Thank you so much brother! It was very very instructive and helpful. I’ve got a number of tips from watching them. I know I’ve said this before, but I really love the style and the way you guys preach! That’s exactly what the world needs! Preachers that are in-your-face. That’s the way I want to preach too! So I look up to men like bro Robert, you and bro Paul and I try to follow your examples.

 I especially liked the tapes about you in Mardi-Grass, the one about Kevin in San Francisco & the Chicago Sodomite Parade. I don’t know if Paul told you, but the Cape Town Police Department gave me the green light to preach against the sodomite-parade this year on the 17th of February! They said I can take my bull-horn and my banner and preach there as long as I don’t get violent or too personal with someone or as long as I don’t obstruct the road. I’m very happy to be able to preach at the Cape Town Sodomite-parade again this year, because I was worried that I would get shut down. This is a real answer to prayer. I’m definitely going to use some of your sayings like: “Why are you so intolerant? Why can’t you accept me for who I am? I was born this way!”

Do you have Kevin’s emailaddress? I would like to send him an email.

One thing that really stand out to me from the tapes is the huge crowds there are over there in America. I would love to preach to those kind of crowds. I’ve already told bro Robert and bro Paul that I’m very serious to move to America. There are much much more events and people to preach to in America than over here in South Africa. There are much more opportunities for open-air preaching in America than over here. This is the biggest factor in my decision to move to America. I’ve already decided that I want to go forward with the move and I’m going to update my resumé soon to apply for a job over there on the internet. My only concern is to find a company that will be willing to hire (and sponsor) someone from overseas rather than to get someone locally. I feel somewhat frustrated living in South Africa. It is rare to find that kind of crowds over here than I saw on the DVD’s. I’m not satisfied to preach to thousands, I want to preach to millions of people! I want to live there where I can be most productive and useful in preaching the Gospel and this is the reason I want to move to America. As soon as I get a job there, then I’m flying over there with the next plane!

God bless you, brother Ruben!

Dear Brother Reuben,
My name is Edward Savoy, I am a student at James Madison University, and I
am proud to call myself a Christian.  Over the last two days, we at JMU have
been visited by a represenative of your organization.  After listening to
this gentlemen for the last two days, it was my determined conclusion that
he was a misguided man, in his views, his rhetoric, and his theology.  I
visited your website, which he advertised, in hopes that this gentleman was
an exception and not the norm for your organization.  I have since found
that my hope was misplaced.

Sir, it is my considered opinion that you and your ilk do more to harm the
cause of Christ than all the athiests in Christendom.  The message you
spread is one of intolerance and diviseness.  You talk much of condemnation,
but little of salvation.  You preach a great deal about sin, but little
about grace.  Is this what Christ, in whose name you preach, would approve
of?

The Christ I was raised to worship loved and ate with sinners and, while he
hated their sin, he loved the sinner and did not bellow condemnations toward
them, as your represenative.  You misrepresent the Gospel when you transform
it into a document of condemnation rather than an instrument of grace.  How
can you possibly expect to convert those who sin by hardening them against
you?

Furthermore, in speaking with your represenative concerning matters of the
Bible, I came away with the impression that he does not understand it in a
way that any reasonable person does.  For example, when I conversed with him
about the story of Jesus and the adulteress and his injunction to \"those
who have no sin, cast the first stone,\" I was told that this literally
applies to the throwing of stones and not to the principle that we should
not judge the sin of others because of our own sin, a position that I do not
believe any reputable and reasonable preacher or theologian holds.  In
holding such positions, you and your organization do harm to those who may
otherwise be with you.

I write this missive not in the interest of condemming it, but in the hope
that you may reform; I sincerely believe that you are capable of doing the
work of Christ, if only you drop this unholy rhetoric and untenable
reasoning.  I pray that you will hear these words in the spirit of Christian
brotherhood and take them into your heart.
Yours in Christ,
Edward J. Savoy

I'm interested in street preaching/evangelism, and I'd like to join a group that's into that, so I can learn.  Do you know of a group around Seattle?
Thanks.

BEST VIDEO DISPLAY EVER, I AM MOVED   Thomas, Texas

Dear Ruben, It was really great to personally meet you at the Street Preacher's conference in Atlanta this past weekend. I have been reading about you and seeing your messages on Jed's bulletin board for several years..... Celi and I had a really good time in the few days that we were at the street preaching conference. We are still basically new at this whole public ministry thing...but we are rapidly learning. Our learning was enhanced even further by being around folks that have had much involvement with street and campus ministry. I was really touched at how excited and bold the others at the conference were about preaching on the streets and the campuses. It was like they were just itching to get out on the streets.  I remember when we got to downtown Atlanta, outside the U2 concert....boom...people just started preaching....and kept on. Hopefully we will bring that spirit with us back to the Philippines. We have been doing street ministry there for about a year and a half now, but we need even more boldness.

Hi Ruben, Like the new site.  When are you guys next in the UK?   Yours in Christ, James G. Battell

Ruben, If it was not for the Lord’s divine protection, you would not be here my friend.  In the dictionary under “no small stir” there should be a photo of you, with all of your liberal anarchists and their peaceful demeanors!   Eric CA.

Cool there goes my FAVORITE Photo - Ruben in a cow outfit complete with udders. Still cracks me up! 

How cpuld you stand the abuse day after day, year after year if you did not love those who abuse you.  I am amazed that he hasn't punched someone out? I see love on ruben's part.

Have you been out preaching lately?  and if you have where. i have the picture of you on my wall, above my TV.  and i like to look at it just to see your picture, and just to think on how you and how everything is going for you.

Have been missing street ministry, but praying to get back in the groove. Are you coming down? If you do, I will make sure to see you and group. I went to your web sight. AWESOME!  I love and appreciate you brother, praying for you always that God continue to use you and for you to be a blessing to others.
Your brother in service for Christ Jesus our Lord.

Bro. Ruben,   Just a quick email to say hello, hope all is well with your family and brethren in CA..  Will be preaching at the Sodomite festival in Harrisburg, Hope all went well for you this year.  Take care and God bless.   Dan 

My Dear  Bro. Ruben
It was such a joy to be with you yesterday although be it for such a short time.  Perhaps someday this side of heaven we can have more time together. Please keep me informed of your activities as best you can so we can lift you up in prayer.  My men were strengthened as a result of yesterday.  I think all pastors should realize how  this helps their men to grow.  May God meet your every need and then some.  Thank you for allowing us to be with you.  I would to God that we had more time and places to preach.
In Christ  Phil

Praise God for your report Ruben.  You are an inspiration.
Also, thank you for connecting Jim Ellsman and me.  He is a great guy
and is looking forward to our arrival for the Super Bowl.
Bill

Thank you very much for your quick reply to my plea.  Can't make it to the S of E this time around because of time restraints,. but hope to next year.
Jed S. came to our church and preached back in 2003 I believe he mentioned your name.  One of our saints here ended up going their where you folks are and meeting you.  I mentioned to him that I received a reply to my email from a Ruben Israel, and Eugene  said...GREAT MAN OF GOD,. NO NONSENSE EVANGELISM, .. TELLS IT LIKE IT IS NO MATTER WHAT...and so on and so on..haha.
I certainly hope to meet you some day.  Perhaps if we can get our church body into a higher gear,. we could invite you and some of the brothers their to come and help us and do some in depth teaching?
Pastor James M. O'Connor  To God Be The Glory Church , DeWitt, Michigan

Dear Ruben,
Greetings from Georgia! It was really great to personally meet you at the Street Preacher's conference in Atlanta this past weekend. I have been reading about you and seeing your messages on Jed's bulletin board for several years, so it was awesome to finally meet you in person. Celi and I had a really good time in the few days that we were at the street
preaching conference. We are still basically new at this whole public ministry thing...but we are rapidly learning. Our learning was enhanced even further by being around folks that have had much involvement with street and campus ministry. I was really touched at how excited and bold the others at the conference were about preaching on the streets and the campuses. It was like they were just itching to get out on the streets.  I remember when we got to downtown Atlanta, outside the U2 concert....boom...people just started preaching....and kept on. Hopefully we will bring that
spirit with us back to the Philippines. We have been doing street ministry there for about a year and a half now, but we need even more boldness.   Thanks also for your offer to have a few banners made for us. They will be a big help for our ministry in the Philippines. Our plan is to begin to go to more of the large gatherings in the Manila area...sort of
like you are doing in the USA. Manila is about an hour and a half away from us. It is basically an easy trip. Sometimes a million plus people gather for things like Catholic fiestas and other events in Manila. People are everywhere and the banners will be a big help in drawing attention and sharing the Word. Here are 4 phrases that can be put on banners. You mentioned that the banners would be back-to-back.  So that will be two banners. That should be enough to get us started in the Philippines. Maybe we can how you have them made and then in the future, we might can find someone
in the Philippines who make similar banners. 
Thanks again for your help! God bless you!
In His Power Derek

Greetings Ruben,
We checked out your website; it was awesome!
It was good to have met you, as well. We look forward to keeping in touch; if you could put us on your email list to receive any mailings and ministry updates that you send out it would be a blessing. We thank you for the wisdom that you shared in your teaching sessions at the School of Evangelism; we greatly benefited from what you said and will
put it into practice as we "go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature". Additionally, if you have any advice, pointers, tips, criticisms, that can help us to be better servants of Christ and open air preachers, we would welcome your input.
 

May God continue to anoint and bless you in His Service!
Michael and Tamika Venyah

WHAT A WEBSITE:
Ruben, I just got done putting masting tape on the back of my folding chairs that
says 'JOHN 3:16' and 'READ THE BIBLE'!  My son has a soccer tournament and
it seems to be a good way to get the Word out.  Thank you for coming to
Columbia.  It was a pleasure to meet you!
Press on, Mike

Ruben,
Blessing back to you! I learned a ton from you this week, and enjoyed your fellowship. Well, if I plan a trip out west I will definitely contact you. For the Word of God and the testimony of Jesus!    Ken

Hey Bro Ruben,
Good to hear from you!  Great report.


Excellent website.
Yes! Please do send the update, address and how to help. We are now sleepless near Seattle area. Doin a little street work with Lance and locals etc. GOD BLESS YOU and the family, and the teams
Bro. Tim
PS- Thanks for all you and your family has done for Grant and myself over the long haul. I must say I have learned more from you Ruben at the Mardi Gras and many other events,  with your O.J.T. (on the job trainning) style than literally ten years with some un-named preacher types in the northlands who must remain nameless

Been wwatching your videos for some time now. I beleive your abosolutely right in what your doing. I looked at your blingblings. A friend what somewhat fearful that I might be upset about the group of christian bikers you have displayed on that page. It's about time someone calls most christian riders what they are. Cowards for Christ. I put together through the Holy Spirit a motorcycle ministry in a different way. We are Street Preachers! We absolutely believe the lost need to hear the Truth of God's Word no matter the cost. If you would like to visit our webpage here it is  www.jerichoriders.org . We have many of your videos posted there for all to see. Most christian riders don't agree with what we do. We need to please God instead of man. Continue your work for the Lord Jesus Christ and know we would like to join you at one of your events. Please contact us about upcoming events.
Jim


Hi Brother,
This is Joe Christopherson from
www.burningheartsoutreach.com. I preached
with you at the Gay Parade in Chicago. I would like to go preaching with
you at other events you go to like mardi gras and such. Let me know. God
bless,
Joe Christopherson

Hello Mr. Israel,
I am a brother in Christ from Massillon OH. I am just writing because
I read about your endeavors with the homo parades and I am glad you
are a public witness to them about that being a sin and about the
grace that Christ offers to them. I am also glad at your excellent
attempt to expose their hypocrisy as they have been sneering at
christians who are supposedly "intolerant". I would be interested in
any updates you would have on your case.

It would be great to have you out here to minister with you. I guess
we have kindred spirits, or both have a desire to get the word out
publickly as much as possible.
Sincerely, Steven Banks

 

HI,
I received a news alert that a preacher in Florida (James Knox) sent to our home church about the Gay Pride Parade in Los Angeles.  A lady at my church forwards emails to those of us away from our home church.  I just wanted to say thank you for your stand.  It encourages me that we should defy the enemy  and stand up for Jesus.  There is no shame in it and it makes me so glad to see the way you are going about it with dignity and honor.

I had a supervisor recently who took up for his "gay" cousin and it is so true that they do accept what we believe even though they want everyone to accept their disobedience.  God Bless your efforts.
Donna Coon

 

Hi!

I am pastor Eligio Thomas of Faith Baptist Church in Yuba City California.

I am writing to know when you are going out to these street preaching. Let us know so we can pray for you and your people. 

Keep up the good work I am very delighted to see someone standing in the gap of this awful sin. 

God bless saw the pictures sent to me by Pastor Knox from Florida. God bless you my brother keep on for our Lord Jesus Christ.

Thanks what an encouragement for us who love God. 

 

For Christ sake, 

Pastor Eligio Thomas 

 

Thank you for standing up for my rights as a strait bible believer. You are not alone, my prayers are with you.

Jared Hardin 

 

Greetings! My name is Brian Pace and I am from Northeast Mississippi. I enjoy your website and keep up the good work. Now I have a personal question. I am huge on Christian Outreach with Gospel Tracts and through the Internet. Also I independently protest against Abortion (Child Murder) on a regular basis. Of course I try and find others to engage on these issues. However they keep ignoring me on numerous occasions. I have tried to get numerous Christians and Pastors to go out into the community and Spread the Gospel Of Jesus Christ. They either ignore my concerns or lie to keep me away from them. Now I am not a Green Alien and I wasn\'t born on Planet Mars. I am a sinner saved by grace and I have taken up my calling to Spread the Gospel Of Jesus Christ in public places. I used to think that people didn\'t like me. Now I realize that was a selfish way of looking at this situation. I realize these people are ignoring the message. My question is the following. How can Christians refuse to Spread the Gospel Of Jesus Christ in their personal lives? Faith Without Works Is Dead! Right!

 

DEAR brother Ruben:      im a street preacher in porter texas ....been enjoying your web site and your life story i liked the picture of you standing on the hood of your  59 ford and preaching ...the gospel that is my kind of preaching !!    i preached for 35 years in churches ..and GOD got me out of all that now ..the last 2 years i have been open air street preaching only i have never been happer  i feel like i wasted 35 years of ministry ...now im 63 and just getting started  been at it now 2 years lost most of my pastor friends ...i go down town at the main intersection and hold my banner and preach ...OH  why didn't i do this a long time ago...i really admire you brothers a the work you are all doing for CHRIST ..im at it alone so im learning like on the job training it don't take long ..to find some things out . was wondering if you have a like ministry in the houston texas area?  i do want to fellow ship with other street preachers  ....seems like im the only one around here doing it ..  your bro. in CHRIST gene painter

 

Hi my name is Reuben also.  Can you send me information on all of your resources

for stuff going on in the la area?  I would love to attend the Georgia conference but its too far.  If you need a volunteer I would like to be a part of your activities and add support.  I can learn a lot from you.  This e-mail is fine. 

 Glory to God,

Reuben

 

 

I just read your story, i love you (nothing unclean meant by this i am a married (35 years same man) grandma of  11..) because you are a disciple of Christ and no lukewarm wishy washy one at that. Glory to God...you are a servant of the Most High...amen...and it is of Him you shall receive your reward dear brother.

I have only had a wee taste of your street ministry when i spent 5 years then another 2 years at a later date as a side walk counselor out side our local abortion mills...it was like someone getting out of years of schooling (in a church) and finally being able to put all that learning into practice. I spent a lot of time witnessing to clinic escorts and abortionists. I loved it in the Lord. I love to share the gospel. 

I so admire what your doing and covet that kind of minstry opportunity, maybe the Lord will open that up for me sometime for now my ministry is via the internet.  

God bless .....again....lol i will bother you no further today.

Seed.

 

Hi Ruben. My name is Joshua and I was wondering if you are still looking for street preachers? If so I live in Santa Clarita, CA and I would love to learn from you, anyway you can email me. 

 

 Bro. Ruben,

 Just a few lines to check in and share. Been a while since we spoke or emailed..

 I checked into your website yesterday and seen the updated version. Love it!!!!

 

Larry , Ed, and I have been preaching in Athens, OH a couple times a month. We plan to preach next weekend. Also Larry and I plan to preach a Kutless concert in Charleston , WV  early October  and the three of us plan to be at the Halloween Celebration in Athens , OH  this year.

 

I went to Marietta , OH and did some street work Friday night. The usual , I stirred some Catholics and a bar owner, while some received the word with gladness.  No one saveed though.

Again let me say , your new website inspired me.  Your ministry provokes me to good works!! I look at my calender and I can see that I did more this year than last year but I have a  lot more to do next year. 

Thanks for your ministry and you encouragement and inspiration.

God Speed my Brother

 

 

Hello, Brother in Christ

I'm writing simply because something was laid on my heart as I looked at you holding the sign in the Denver Daily News and as I read your website.

 Jesus' main exhortation to us as His followers was to feed the hungry, take care of the 'least of the bretheren' etc. I don't recall Him saying anything about Homosexuality. If it were the big deal we humans think it is, shouldn't He have mentioned it?

Don't get me wrong. Sin is Sin. Just as Leviticus tells us that we must sacrifice a bird if we get mildew, and that touching the skin of a pig is an abomination. Do you go to football games and preach against touching the skin of a pig? I just think it's odd how we humans pick and choose which scripture we're going to emphasize. 'Love thy neighbor' should be a little closer to the top of the list in my opinion.

God bless

Do you know of a street preaching ministry in Seattle that you could put me in touch with?
I am interested in talking to street preachers in Seattle and learning of their beliefs and ministry for a possible story in the daily newspaper here.

Loved this press release, Ruben!  I found it quite objective, coming from a homo press-release outfit and all!  Bro., your reasoning is perfect.  It only hit me near the end when you're quoted saying how the sodomites want to march in Macy's parade, be accepted into the Boy Scouts and have sued e-Harmony for not being allowed to use its services.  Yet they bar any opposing viewpoints in their parades??!!  What hypocrisy!  Go for it, Ruben!

 

Bro.Ruben

Read about your encounter from brother Ray send me your updates this stuff is good!!  Controversial street preacher huh? hey where do they get off Where’s the tolerance? You made some really good points ha-ha- should of let you march I was glad when this was put in =they will not let him register for the parade because of his sexual orientation (straight) and religious beliefs.   Go getem Ruben your in our prayers

Pastor Larry

If only more believers would take this precious gospel into the PUBLIC square( the cults do)mormons Jw's and ALL the filth that the devil can expose you and your family to. When is the last time someone while you were out approached you with a GOSPE L tract? Are confronting you friends neighbors with the true gospel or do you fear losing their friendship , yet you tell them you love them but in reality the fact they are lost and will spend eternity in Hell (and deep down you know it) does not covict you enough to tell them . In many cases your "church" has not taught you the real bible way to be saved and you have  not studied enough to be confident to defend the gospel. All believers are commanded to study and contend for the true faith( and it is not catholic judaism mormon islam etc. ) You need a new heart a new nature a new direction a savior the Lord Jesus not baptism communion cicumcision (unless it is to take out your stony rebellious heart .A bris a bar mitvah a 1st communion rosary the mass hail Mary's penance indulgences WILL NOT save you from a devils Hell . NOTHIING will but being BORN AGAIN by dying to SELF and accepting the Lord Jesus being bought with His precious BLOOD giving Him title and deed to YOU He wants.  YOU . Do you really want Him ? How much? Important as All your eternity is the truth and that is a person the Lord Jesus not a truth "the" TRUTH if what you are believing does not conform to the bible you are beliving a lie and who is the father of all lies the devil. We accept and promote and vote for LIARS and then wonder why America is falling and being destroyed little by little . The answer is Jesus and HIS gospel are you out there telling the world if NOT you are as much a part of the problem as those LIARS in Washington and all these false teachers and preachers. Why because you PROFESS to know the truth and are doing nothing.The bible says"how will they KNOW unless some one TELLS them " NEVER forget that and if you are not doing that to knowwhat is right and to do it not is SIN. REPENT, get equipped and GET BUSY. GARY I am so grateful for Ruben you real believers pray for him he is so rare today.  

Don't let them wear you down Ruben.

 

Thank you for standing up for my rights as a strait bible believer. You are not alone, my prayers are with you.  Jared Hardin

 

Ruben, In my study of Matthew I was led to this scripture and instantly thought of you.  I do hope this benefits you in the Lord for Marti Gras.
Malachi 3:17
"Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will clear the way before Me And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; and the messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming," says the LORD of hosts.
But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner's fire and like fullers' soap.

He will sit as a smelter and purifier of silver, and He will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, so that they may present to the LORD offerings in righteousness.

"Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasing to the LORD as in the days of old and as in former years.

 "Then I will draw near to you for judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers and against the adulterers and against those who swear falsely, and against those who oppress the wage earner in his wages, the widow and the orphan, and those who turn aside the alien and do not fear Me," says the LORD of hosts.

"For I, the LORD, do not change; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed.

 "From the days of your fathers you have turned aside from My statutes and have not kept them Return to Me, and I will return to you," says the LORD of hosts. "But you say, 'How shall we return?'

Bro. Ruben, Just a note to say hello. Hope all is well with you. We are keeping busy over here. Preaching on the street in Lancaster, Pa. a couple weeks ago, ran into Mark Diener, said he had not seen you in a while. Coming to the east coast any time soon.? Preaching in our area regularly plus Baltimore and D.C. occassionally. We are expecting our third child in late May early June. Praise God for his goodness towards us! Hear from Dean Moore at all, if you have any contact info for him, please e-mail. Thanks, take care and God bless you. Bro. Dan

*Brother Ruben you are on this Mormon video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upxdvSTLRXI

Thank you, Ruben, for including us in this mission (as intercessors). We
will certainly pray and fast for the team. It is an honor and privilege to
do so. Even though I would've loved to go with you guys, I understand the
reasons behind the women not going and not only that, my surgery will be on
Thursday morning, so....Anyhow, thanks, Ruben, for praying for me regarding
that. I will need it.
Bless you!! :) Onica

Dear Reuben,  This is Bob Silling, an evangelist who met you in New Orleans in 2004 during that year's Southern Decadence. I am the tall guy who wears hearing aids. Saw you on TV during the Micheal Jackson trail and read about you challenging Cindy Sheenan during the recent anti-war rally in LA. When are you coming to the DC area? I live about two and a half hours from there. Any Virginia outreaches planned? That is the state I live in. What is your web site? Keep preaching away and may the Lord grant you fruit this year. Also pray for my foster son whom we are hoping to adopt. He is in the hospital with meningitis. His name is David. God speed to you.      Yours in Christ, Bob Silling

GOD bless your heart Ruben! You always do a wonderful work. I appreciate you and the great bunch of ministers that you witness and preach with.      

 Brother Ruben!

I’ve got the tapes! I’ve received them Wednesday the 24th and watched 3 of the tapes the same evening and the rest last evening.

 Yes, I really enjoyed every minute of them! Thank you so much brother! It was very very instructive and helpful. I’ve got a number of tips from watching them. I know I’ve said this before, but I really love the style and the way you guys preach! That’s exactly what the world needs! Preachers that are in-your-face. That’s the way I want to preach too! So I look up to men like bro Robert, you and bro Paul and I try to follow your examples.

 I especially liked the tapes about you in Mardi-Grass, the one about Kevin in San Francisco & the Chicago Sodomite Parade. I don’t know if Paul told you, but the Cape Town Police Department gave me the green light to preach against the sodomite-parade this year on the 17th of February! They said I can take my bull-horn and my banner and preach there as long as I don’t get violent or too personal with someone or as long as I don’t obstruct the road. I’m very happy to be able to preach at the Cape Town Sodomite-parade again this year, because I was worried that I would get shut down. This is a real answer to prayer. I’m definitely going to use some of your sayings like: “Why are you so intolerant? Why can’t you accept me for who I am? I was born this way!”

One thing that really stand out to me from the tapes is the huge crowds there are over there in America. I would love to preach to those kind of crowds. I’ve already told bro Robert and bro Paul that I’m very serious to move to America. There are much much more events and people to preach to in America than over here in South Africa. There are much more opportunities for open-air preaching in America than over here. This is the biggest factor in my decision to move to America. I’ve already decided that I want to go forward with the move and I’m going to update my resumé soon to apply for a job over there on the internet. My only concern is to find a company that will be willing to hire (and sponsor) someone from overseas rather than to get someone locally. I feel somewhat frustrated living in South Africa. It is rare to find that kind of crowds over here than I saw on the DVD’s. I’m not satisfied to preach to thousands, I want to preach to millions of people! I want to live there where I can be most productive and useful in preaching the Gospel and this is the reason I want to move to America. As soon as I get a job there, then I’m flying over there with the next plane!

God bless you, brother Ruben!

 

Excellent!  Thanks for sharing.  What a wonderful work.

God always blesses,  Jer. 33:3

 

Why is it that every time I picture you at these events, a mischievous sort of smile emerges on my face!  Talk about polar extremes, I don’t believe two events could be further from each other in a single day. 

 

May the seeds that were sown bear fruit in the hearts of men and women that heard the Gospel today.  Let us pray they found good soil. 

 

Thank you for the update Ruben.  I can only imagine how little time you have in a 24 hour period.  May the Lord bless you, your family, and your endeavors.

 

Interview, filming request.  Hello Brother Ruben,
I'm writing to you on behalf of First Word Productions, in Los Angeles.
We are in the process of filming a documentary about modern religion
and religious movements in the United States. We are focusing on
different modern cultural events, different views on religion and
spirituality, and traditional religious festivities and rituals.
We want to do a segment on preaching religion to the public. We are particularly interested in interviewing a street preacher to hear their beliefs, their history and their protection of 1st amendment rights. We will be traveling all over the country to collect footage and are extremely interested in capturing this segment for our documentary, probably in February.
Please let me know if you would be willing to speak with me further on
the subject and if there i's a phone number I can call.
Thank you for your time.

 

Hi Ruben - Thanks for your message. From what you say there is a lot more
happening in the USA than here in Australia. I live about halfway between
Sydney and Brisbane, and the Christians here are very timid. I'll have a
look at your website and the links. God bless you. Rod

 

Praise God Ruben for your great report.
Keep preaching bro...see you in Miami

 

Ruben, Hi, my name is Daniel and I write articles about UF campus news on my
site and submit articles to the Florida Alligator (our campus
newspaper).  Frank Warner has been on campus for a while, and I was told
that he is affiliated with your organization.
I was wondering if you could spare a few minutes for a quick phone
interview.  I just had a few questions about the size and scope of you
guys' organization, about how many years you guys have been active, and
your long-term goals.  I do not have any theology-related questions, or
any religion-related questions at all.
If you could help me out, I will gladly call you at whatever number you
like, whenever it is convenient for you.
I will send you a link to the story that gets printed up.
With warm regards, Daniel

 

I really appreciate your zeal for God and the website is very informative. I met you in New Orleans at Mardi Gra. Our website is www.thechurchatbrookhaven.org you will recongnize me on the front page and some of the others. I also wanted let you know about my Young Son Samuel\'s new DVD that is out \"The Young Preacher\" there are 10 messages and two are on abortion. IT has been encouraging street preachers. You can watch the messages online if you have highspeed. Ig you like it I will send you a hard copy.  Press ON  Bro Kendall

 

Brother, I just wanted to check in with you and make sure that everything is going well.  If there is anything you need, please do not hesitate to ask!

 For His Kingdom, Joel Thornton

 

As always, much appreciation for you preparing the way, Bro. Ruben. I guess
you could say "your reputation proceeds you?"    Bro John

 

Reuben-
I have some things to challenge you with since you seem to always challenge me. I'll have a good view of you guys im living at the old travel lodge now on the block next to the conference center. Its part of the lds business college dorms. Are you going to be carrying a book of mormon with your bible this time?
Josh

Why do you hold signs saying "God Hates You"?

 

Ruben is this you west hollywood

Hi Ruben,
I was wondering do you know where I could get a hold of dvds or audios from the soapa conference from last year and or will there be some available after this years conference?
Thankyou and Godbless  In the harvest, Joe

 

Ruben, Thanks for letting me know.  Last week I made a decision to go full time
ministry, so, I am looking for preaching events.  I might be missing your
itinerary on your website.  Do you have one?  If so, could you email me it,
I would like to preach with you at some of the events you go to.  I have
made plans to go to the SOAPA conference and I am looking forward to seeing
you there.  Larry  Matthew 5:16

 

Your webpage is probably the worst I have ever encountered.
Seriously. I think I might vomit. Because its like looking at your mom after she\'s been run over four times and shit on by vultures.

 

*I'm Catholic, and I read the bible, but I think there are some things that you're wrong on.  You came to (and still are at) my campus.  You call yourself preachers, but is that who you really are?  My friend, who shall remain not named mentioned this:
"After being called a "hell-bound whore" by someone I had never met or spoken to before, it was no longer very entertaining. It was more like a car wreck. People were angry, and people lost their cool. Slurs and insults were carelessly thrown around by these [people]!"    When I read this, I was horrified.  Can someone who is trying to preach God\'s word really go and call a complete stranger a "hell-bound whore?"  I think not.  You talk about the final judgment day when "all your sins will send you to burn in hell with all the other homos and sinners and child molesters, the lesbians etc.. the list goes on. Sure Jesus said" "Go and make disciples of all nations, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." but I doubt that means calling every person in your sight a whore, etc. I'm not one to use bible quotes on people, but since you used them on the campus body the other day, I ask you to contemplate Matthew 7:1-2.  "Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you”.

Am I wrong to think that since you're galavanting around campus yelling names that even your children shouldn't hear at strangers you barely know (they could even be christians!) that you\'re in the wrong? Some of my own thoughts: Loving another person is never a sin, no matter what gender they are.  God makes gay people exactly how they are (and straight people, and those somewhere in-between) and God doesn't make junk! Who are we to disparage and defame any of God's gifts?
Truly it is a heinous sin to preach hatred, discrimination, bigotry and therefore violence against these people. Not only is this hypocritical, and using only selective parts of the bible, but it ignores the whole "judge not" part as well. I wish more of these hate-mongers would try - just once - to embrace tolerance, peace, love, and understanding. WWJD?
I guess my main problem is that you are not open to debate. To believe so strongly in something, with NO doubt, NO skepticism, is dangerous. It allows your mind to stop functioning, am I right?
Aide to that, also, you bring your children to these "functions" I guess i should call them.  Why?  So they can hold a sign for you?  So they can freeze while you're yelling insults at people as they walk by?  The children are at most 7 years old and here one is carrying a sign that reads ". Heathens Beware!  Fornicator, Adulterer, Liar, Hypocrite, Lesbian, Drunkard, Thief, Sodomite, Idolater, Blasphemer, Motty Mouth(wait a minute.. weren't you the one calling people whores and Dikes.. tsk tsk tsk, you potty mouth)" 

YOur Guild is REAL! you deserve to go to hell!"  The other children are huddled together on the side, trying not to freeze to death while you argue with the students saying things like "I don't listen to Homos" and "you’re going to hell, you whore."  What an example for those children, I tell you.
My friend, who I have previously mentioned also stated that the thing that disturbed her the most out of the whole ordeal was when "because they were too busy calling complete strangers whores, dykes, homos, sinners, stoners, rock and rollers, potty mouths, blasphemers, and many more[names], the children were too busy freezing in the wind'  also,  you refused to speak to women. He said "I'm sick of all these females" and began making squawking noises-- i suppose to imitate shrillness? "That's why God made the 12 apostles men!"
So excuse me for being put off by this, but i am throughly offended by the majority of what was said.  You're supposed to preach God's word and let that instill belief in them, not scare them away by saying they're automatically damned to hell.  Am I right?

Religious people are the absolute worst of humanity

Your last questions:  I've lived in Seattle a few months, and in the fall
I'll be going to Trinity Western in Canada.  Until then I'll be in Seattle.
I go to the United Evangelical Free Church--it's the church my parents go
towhen they come back; not really very evangelical, but I go to feel
connected, since I've been all over the place.  Looking for a better church.
p.s.: could you tell me about the Seattle group?
Seth.

 

 

Hi,
First, I want to say I'm not going to flame you with rants. That would be stupid.
Second, If you got this thank you for taking the time to read my e-mail. I hope you read the rest.
I want to get out that I disagree with many of your views. You are doing it wrong.
You condemn people to Hell. you might be thinking "I do no such thing." When you say "If you do ____, then you go to hell." You have taken the role of God.
When did man have the choice of who goes to hell or not?
Telling people that they're doomed is only going to generate dissent toward you.
And the only people on your side are people who already agree with you.
When you preach that what other people are doing is wrong, they feel compassion. They feel HATE. How do I know? Does protesting Gay Pride parades sound like love?
WWJD?
Would Jesus tell people they were going to hell?
Would Jesus shun people if they were wrong?
Would Jesus show HATE period?
Would Jesus mock others?
Did Jesus tell people they were going to hell? No.
Did Jesus shun people if they were wrong? No. He ate with them and they sat at his table.
Did Jesus show HATE period? No. He expressed anger and sadness. But only love.
Did Jesus mock others? NOT EVEN ONCE.
Jesus loved everyone. And from what I see, it doesn't look like your loving at all. Am I right?
Please remember Jesus came to replace the MOSAIC LAW. That means most of the torah, it's popular among preachers to use the OT to explain why homosexuality is bad (specifically the book of Leviticus). When Leviticus condones slavery.
So, is one part right and the rest is not? The Bible is infallible remember?
Leave Catholics alone. Did you go to Catholic school? Do you know the complete history on the church? Have you read the catechism front and back?
I'm sorry if you still don't see what you did there.

 

frank & i are planning to be in southern Ca for the last half of February.  of course, we're looking forward to seeing you & Colleen.  we will be campus preaching with paul & fellowshipping with numerous others.

God bless, jeremiah

 

Hi Reuben, 

I would like to come preach with you at Mardi Gras, assuming there are no other huge events going on in Florida (are there?) that week.

Did you talk to your webmaster regarding my site www.primaryproofofthebible.com?  Could we exchange links?

I've been preaching at USF daily, and I'll be going to the St. Pete Times Forum often to preach near the hockey games.  Pray for me that God continues to fill me with Jesus' heart of pity for the lost and causes me to weep at the abominations of ObamaNation (Ezekiel 9).

God bless you,

George
