Went downtown to enjoy myself on 9th and Broadway and talk to some of the fellas when I was rudely interrupted by a street evangelist. I was nice once, twice and then I decided to get off of my phone call and shut it down.
The fella's in the crowd was like "You are messing with the wrong guy!" He knows his stuff.
I simply asked him a series of questions, and then shared my Faith with him, and then he laughed at me and told me, and everyone else in the crowd that they were going to hell.
So, I taught him, humbled him, and then shut down the operation. It was cool. Also the guy dressed in the Black, which was one of his buddies, was silent as a church mouse.
A few keys points was:
Hell is not a location, but a spiritual condition.
The creator that I know is all-loving. Gave an example of how I would treat my kids and that surely if my capacity was that high, the omniscient God's perfection's were greater.
Shared a few scripture references from the Gospel.
Informed him that the thief in the night, was visiting him at this very moment, and that he should show humility, especially when he is sharing the message with others and expecting the same respectful response.
Shared how all religions agree and are apart of the same family.
Then I chastised him for his method, told him that the clergy was abolished, and then spent some time, un-teaching his affects on my brethren who were present.
I then shared with him the good news for this day and wished him well as he packed up, and gave him my card with information to research for himself.
Sidenote: There is not one social place in town that allows more than 100 black folk to congregate socially and that is culturally relevant. Also there is not one place of entertainment designed for those that dont drink. We are very base as a species at this time.
