    I don’t doubt that this dialogue made a much deeper impression on people there than either one singly could have made–a Providential moment.

    But we in the west divide what belongs together regarding heart and head. http://textsincontext.wordpress.com/2012/06/21/the-great-commandment-heart-and-mind/

    I wish I could give this woman a huge hug! She’s so brave to stand up for what she believes! I don’t know this man, but it seems pretty clear that the Jesus that he preaching and the Christianity that he is inviting people into is what Paul warned about…having a form of godliness, but denying it’s power. I’m sure he’ll get a lot of pats on the back for making enemies, but I don’t think he’s expanding the kingdom 😦

    I ended up disagreeing with the girl actually not in what she said but how she confronted him. She went in on emotion and being emotional clouds judgement, so some things she did say weren’t necessarily biblical but more opinion and things that men have taught. She may be right but was she being spirit-led? they were both equally right in what they said but at the same time it worries me a bit about has our generation of christians become all about experience and emotion and what feels good, and right and this hurts my heart so you must be wrong, what if what she was possibly feeling conviction, but whose to know but God?

    i have watched a similar situation except with a young man, the difference was he actually practised what he preached, he talked to the street preacher got to know him and befriend him, then he asked for the street preachers mic and began to share his testimony and this rallied in a crowd of those who genuinely wanted to know the God whereas the girl really was all talk, and in that situation it looks more as if she was causing more division and confusion than to bring the focus back onto God.

    When people hear the word of God there is a likelihood that they will be angry,

    Doesn’t the Bible say,

    John 3:19 Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil

    Some People are going to be angry no one can help that because people are just angry in the first place, for many different kinds of reasons. What would be wrong of the preacher is that he is preaching but not following what he preaches, because then he would be a reason why unbelievers blaspheme God and the people would not receive the message or pay attention to it because he won’t be living in the truth. Truth has a distinct fragrance and what is hidden from man is never hidden from God. How does she know that God had told him to say what he had said just as she was stopping by? whatever the case praise be to God he knows how to turn things around for the good of those who love him, that may have been a few people’s first ever church service, the first time hearing the Bible discussed more deeply.

    You can’t ignore God’s wrath and justice and at the same time we shouldn’t forget about his grace, love and kindness. Ignore one and the repercussions are disastrous on the hearers but then again the Holy spirit will lead those who belong to Christ into all truth.

    But yeah unpopular opinion, I had to agree with the street preacher simply because he could back up what he did and why he was doing it and was still respectful to the girl in doing so.
