“The Wrath of God is coming on all flesh. This world is going away! Baseball is going away!”
These were the words of a “turn or burn” street preacher I heard at a recent baseball game while in the United States.
As he went on, I literally had to walk away because tears were forming in my eyes.
I was not upset baseball was going away.
I was so grieved at this man’s approach to evangelism.
I wonder how effective he is?
Does someone rush up to him and express a desire to repent?
Or does he elicit one of two responses: Laughter or Anger.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m all for evangelism.
I do believe in sin, judgment, and the wrath of God as expressed in Romans 1. God’s wrath is not a pleasant topic, yet it is in part of the character and nature of God.
