Saturday Night in Queen St Mall was a very quiet night, the usual attendance was no where to be seen, the mall was almost empty, we still had a decent amount of labourers and praise God that most people had no where to be and therefore were casually strolling around.
I talked to two young men who asked many questions and bought up many reasons they don't want to believe in God.
The bought up the problem of Evil, the problem of 'science', they also said God wasn't very moral.
I answered their questions, explaining that Evil only exists because it is a denial of God and His standards, that God who has all knowledge and is absolutely Good does not do evil but reveals to us His standards which are an outworking of His perfection.
And I also asked them to name a single science experiment that wasn't intelligently designed.
We kept talking till the point where they said maybe God exists but then we came across the real problem, they, like the rest of us, left to our own desires don't want to follow God.
They admitted their sin, they heard the way of salvation by they also wanted to continue living for themselves.
Then towards the end of the night I spoke with two young ladies, who were professing lesbians.
Throughout the whole conversation there was a recurring theme, continually denying God in that they didn't want to follow a God who didn't want them to be Happy.
They denied multiple times that homosexuality was wrong, they would agree about lying, stealing, cheating, lusting, hating and many other things were wrong but when it came to homosexuality they were adamant there was no problem.
They appealled to some morality but the problem was, it was what they wanted it to be, not what God's standard is.
We talked about the use of the Old Testament, the application of the Law, the way of salvation, why certain things are wrong and others aren't, we talked about many things the Bible says but after it all, after hearing the way of salvation, after hearing about the guilt of all men, they still were adamant that there was no way they'd follow a God who didn't do what they wanted.
Please keep all these people in prayer, all those who interacted with us, took tracts, listened to preaching, conversed or anything. Pray that God may use the Gospel of Jesus Christ that we preached to change the hearts of the Lost. May many come to salvation because of what we preached.
Please pray for the team as we continue to evangelise, may we be faithful servants, desiring to Serve God in all we do, preaching the truth in love and fleeing from Sin.
Soli Deo Gloria!
