They've DONE The SAME THING On RUSH-DIVISION-STATE ST.'S Weekend RIOTOUS Night-Life On CHICAGO'S Near-North-Side !
I Remember Street-Preaching There A Few Years Ago With PASTOR HUFF & THE BRETHREN Of THE KING JAMES BAPTIST BIBLE CHURCH, Arlington Heights, IL !
The CHICAGO ALDERMAN At The Time, BURTON NATARUS (Who's 7th Cousin To My Former Employer & Personal Friend STUART ARONESTE [Italian/Jewish])--With THE CHICAGO POLICE DEPT.,--Slapped A "MIDNIGHT-CURFEW" On ALL STREET-PREACHERS & EVANGELISTS;
*Meaning, One COULDN'T Use A PUBLIC ADDRESS SYSTEM On PUBLIC GROUND Past 12AM !
That "CURFEW" WASN'T Challenged & TODAY Street-Preaching On DIVISION Is NON-EXISTANT !
BUT STABBINGS ON DIVISION ARE NOTORIOUS:
"2 MEN STABBED, ANOTHER BEATEN IN DIVISION STREET FIGHT
By Peter Nickeas, Chicago Tribune Reporter
Two Men Were Stabbed, Another Badly Beaten And A Fourth Arrested Early Sunday (9-23-12) After A Fight On Division Street Spilled Onto State Street, Chicago Police Said.
An Officer Suffered Injuries That Didn't Require Hospitalization While Trying To Arrest A 24-Year-Old Man..."--CHICAGO TRIBUNE
John for Jesus wrote: The jailer asked the question! The words didn't blurt out of his mouth without him having some kind of idea that he needed and wanted to be saved. I don't disagree that God works in peoples lives to bring about salvation by faith. God initiates salvation by the preaching of the Word. People are to obtain salvation in Christ through the obedience of faith.
"John for Jesus": Actions Sometimes Speaks Louder Than Words--Words Sometimes Do Greater Things Than Human Action--Especially GOD'S WORD(S) !
Therein, I Think, Lies The KEY To Understanding Where OUR HUMAN Responsibility Starts &-Or Ends & GOD'S DIVINE RESPONSIBILITY Starts &-Or Ends !
I'm No Great Theologian, But I've STREET-PREACHED Enough Of THE WORD OF GOD To Know When GOD Is Working In The Heart & Life Of A Man--AND When A Man Is Seeking To Make Himself "Right With GOD" !
For Instance, Last Year During Chicago's SODOMITE-PARADE; As I Was STREET-PREACHING THE WORD OF GOD TO THE ATTENDEES, A Young African-American Man Approached Me Afterwards & Requested That I Pray For Him.
He Said He Wanted To Get His Heart "Right With GOD".
I Told Him He Must FIRST REPENT OF HIS SIN (SODOMY ?) & BE "BORN AGAIN" ACCORDING TO ST. JOHN 3:1-16.
