Warren and I met at the usual time of 2pm at the Redcliffe Jetty ready to do some witnessing. We firstly prayed and then started handing out tracts to everyone we met, at the same time trying to get into one to one conversations.

The first conversation I had was with a middle aged man who said that he did not believe that beliefs existed. I've heard many people say that there is no absolute truth, but never heard anyone go as far as he did by saying there are not any beliefs. I pointed out to him that his position is self-refuting, for that in itself is a belief that there are no beliefs. In fact I pointed out to him that he has many beliefs, for example, he believes that the seat he is sitting on will hold him up. He also has a belief that he and other physical objects exist. However he objected to that by saying, "Nothing physical exists." However as the conversation went on he admitted that he believes the inner consciousness exists. He said I should look within myself for the truth, not to anything objective.

At this stage, I knew that this man was massively deceived into believing the new-age cultic material. So I showed the man that we can know there is a God, and I told him of the judgment to come. I then brought him through God's law in order to bring the knowledge of sin to the man. I pointed out that because he had sinned, and he was deserving of God's wrath as the just punishment for his sin. At this stage he just started swearing and cursing at me, so I promptly left the man alone, and helped Warren who was handing out gospel tracts to the hundreds of people that were coming off the Whale Watching boat.

Numerous other conversations were had and many gospel tracts went out. To God be the Glory!
