Last weekend we were in San Diego again for the yearly 'comic com' which is nerd heaven as people dress up like super heroes by the thousands. Harry Potter is their bible with demons and zombies walking among the 200,000 people attending.
So of course, one can not have an event like this without street preachers preaching and the San Diego police worked very well with us again as we preached on both Saturday and Sunday.
We were called ‘party crashers’ and buzz killers’ from the nerd community. Because of the outsized crowds around us that were turning into an angry mob, police moved everyone back and moved us inside yellow tape for our own safety.
Banners and megaphones were allowed to compete with the noise level around us
If you speak against Superman that would be like speaking against the pope, as this way of life is a religion and their holy book would be Marvel Comics.
They have been inspired by these comics and emulate those them in every way possible from how they talk to how they dress. We of course tried to wake them from their stupor and they did not take that too kindly.
As this person below tried to reason with me that everyone knows God and they are good people. He wanted the crowd to just walk away and leave us but of course the crowd did not move as they seemed to long for a good rebuke and that we did.
“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.”
And of course the atheists were out in force with their signs trying to argue that there is no God. The police quickly moved in and warned them against blocking our signs with their signs and they complied. The crowd cheered as they held their signs.
These people have lost their minds and heads for comic books. Some times you must watch your back literally, as you do not know what is behind you.
This headless zombie needed to get some life into his dead body but it appeared this crowd gloried in death and not a living God.
And I do not know what that person is in drag was on the second photo, maybe s crime fighter in a costume. Playing dress up, makes them feel invincible.
I was asked by many if I believed in aliens, to which I said “Yes, this is San Diego and we are close to the border, there are illegal aliens.”
These poor souls believe that there are small green men on Mars and if God died for them. I tried to explain the Bible speaks of earth not another planet but they would not hear that.
Almost every question was with a “What if…” which is expected for someone who lives in a fantasy world.
For a hours we contended for the faith as we would preach and answer questions, preach and answer questions. If someone did believe in God, they should say “God is Love and Jesus preached love” and of course the “Judge not Brother” as if we never heard that one before.
The issues of these people had against the Bible were sodomy and there was not God. Those topics guaranteed many to gather for questions and answers. They accused us of having faith in a book and we accused them of faith in science books. The Bible is filled with facts, as we have witnesses, miracles, prophecy and fulfillment, many authors and archaeology.
That BIBLE is a book of evidence not blind faith. However science like evolution is always changing.
Most were offended that we preached against Marvel Comics who now has a ‘gay super hero’ to keep with the times. We argued if you want to read about a super hero, read about Jesus, He walked on water, healed the sick, cast out demons, raised the dead. Lived a holy life and was put on the cross only to be raised from the dead. THAT, is a super hero.
But ‘Nay’ they would rather defend someone with a mask, cape and wearing leotards…go figure?
As Catholics with an image of Mary, these people have idols. The person below have a small idol of his comic hero as the crowd cheered him and received his blessing. These guys spend way to much time in front of that TV set as a child and grew up with play-station.
“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie”
2 Thessalonians 2:11
Jesus did say to “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature” and last weekend we entered into geek paradise and verily there were many creatures walking around, who now have no dispute not to believe.
There were many other Christians that were at this event, those that just held up signs, those that passed out tracts and others who preached. There is no doubt that they had every chance to get saved. If you did not like our signs or message, they could just walk a block and find others if they did not agree with those people, keep walking as many different messages were proclaimed with the same goal, to get the unsaved saved.
“For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office”
Need a visual of what it looks like when people try to merge Islam and Christianity together?
We have all heard “Be ye not unequally yoked” and we have been told this pertains to marriage but I say NOT SO. The verse is speaking of attaching yourself with another faith, that is IF context has anything to do with anything.
Here is the full context of 2 Corinthians 6:14-17
“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing.”
See marriage in that anywhere?
The text is clearly exhorting us to separate ourselves from these other Belial infidels not be one.
Not even Jesus tried to merge the Pharisees, Sadducees and Herodians together into one happy family. Be separate against that unclean religion, or you are unequally yoked.
This is a preach clip from Bible Brian preaching in front a sodomite church in North Carolina: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4W4BFSH1UQ&feature=c4-overview&list=UUWAZAzN2FfZGEBjAW_LxYsw
And what makes that video unique is that the day before this was filmed he was arrested for preaching in a small community. He was arrested, pushed around and was told by police that they would beat him and kill him. After he was hand cuffed they slammed the back door of the police car on his wrist and keep him locked up for hours.
But all was recorded and this will be used in court. His bail was $1,500.00 and with that I will remind you of our ‘Bail Fund’ to get active saints out of jail.
This is one investment that every active Christian should invest in. If you knock on doors, pass out tracts, witness one on one or just want your fingerprints in getting men out of jail for the Gospels sake.
