Secret Service confiscates more Gospel tracts

U.S. Secret Service agents, who earlier confiscated Gospel tracts from Christians in Texas and Nevada because they carry a message of salvation and an advisory that they are not legal tender even though they look like a $1 million bill, now have taken the same tracts away from a Los Angeles man.

Jim Thomas, who with his wife Charlene had just finished an evangelism training program at their church, told WND he was handing out the tracts near an escalator at a downtown Los Angeles mall "and everything was going very well."

Then, he said, a man approached him and told him that "there's a problem here." ...

My Dad was saved by reading Chick tracts left regularly on a table at his workplace. Never had an actual person witness to him. He eventually went to Bible school, became an Independent Baptist Pastor, and a more solid man or better father would be almost impossible to find.

No, JD, no joke. Considering what I've seen on this board, I believe my questions are justified. Maybe Mr. Comfort isn't like a lot of others when it comes to evangelizing Catholics. However, if he's opposed to Catholic images and all(perhaps he's not), maybe he should reflect this in his tracts--take out all the imagery. You ask if Paul had the whole New Testament sent to various churches. I'll ask: Did the Apostles send out fake money with some form of the Gospel on it?

Mustard Grains says, "It's sad that the JW's and Mormons will carry around a whole bible while witnessing. Those who call themselves Christian seem to limit themselves to gimmicky literature."

Some people that read the Bible seem so naive. I guess this is why Christians are thought of as superstitious nincompoops.

To answer my neighbor from Indiana, let me ask, Did Paul send the entire New Testament to the church of Galatians? What about Corinthians? What about the other churches in the first century? Allow me to ask one more question, Does his pastor read the entire Bible every Sunday? I think that these are redundant.

Furthermore it is the Mormons and JWs that carry gimmicky literature (The Book of Mormon, The Watchtower, etc.). Ray Comfort's tracts may seem gimmicky on first sight, but they are used as spring boards for discusions and to make people think.

MSC says, "I wonder why kind of denomination these guys are? Pseudo-Catholic? They obvoiously don't blink at the thought of making eye-catching and possibly confusing images. Makes those "popish" things look rather innocent--icons and all. I can see where it could be misleading."

This is the craziest conspiarcy theory comment that I've ever seen on Sermonaudio and I've read alot of 'em. This is a joke right?

It does lure them into reading an important message but remember what Jesus said when he sent out the diciples for witnessing in Matthew 10:16, "Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves." It's just like fishing: you have to use an attractive lure or bait to get the fish interested until you can use the Gospel Hook and reel em in. Of course, you do it with all humbleness of spirit and soundness of doctrine.

quote: "It's sad that the JW's and Mormons will carry around a whole bible while witnessing. Those who call themselves Christian seem to limit themselves to gimmicky literature."

The only thing gimmicky about Ray Comfort's tracts was making the cover look like money, so people would pick it up and look at it. So what? If you use a loud noise, a bull horn, whatever, you have to get people's attention before they will listen.

At least Ray Comfort cares enough to try to tell people, to try to get their attention. I know people who risk their lives to get Bible literature into China, and the people in China gobble it up eagerly.

Here in America, where people only care about money anyway, it's a good ploy to get people's attention. Chick Tracts are pretty good too, they do get read.

The only problem I have with the gospel tracts is that they are presenting the wrong message to Americans. Here, people are gospel-hardened, a bunch of people who think they are saved but aren't, as Paul Washer preaches here in SA.

Somebody needs to get out there with some tracts for Prodigal Sons, for those who are dried up like the Five Virgins, pass them out to Christians who are coming out after church service, plaster them on their cars.

A Christian gospel tract should not be
one that uses trickery. A simple little pocket size tract which states
what it is will never be confiscated
by the Secret Service. NOT YET

I would love to hear the testimony of
one that was saved by reading a gospel
tract. Just curious

"The thing that kicked this all off was some ignorant person tried to deposit one of these tracts at a bank..."

His wife also tried to cash one with a muslim taxi driver, but he said he doesn't usually carry that much cash unless the Shah is in town.

The only bills in current production are 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100.

http://www.moneyfactory.gov/section.cfm/4

There used to be 1,000 but you had to go to a bank and register one. All this was to curtail movements of large amounts of cash.

There was a design for the $1 mil note, but it was never printed for use. ( I guess we just had to waste some tax dollars on a design )

"U.S. Secret Service agents, who earlier confiscated Gospel tracts from Christians in Texas and Nevada because they carry a message of salvation and an advisory that they are not legal tender even though they look like a $1 million bill, now have taken the same tracts away from a Los Angeles man."

"The Center for Law and Policy is working on the case, where District Judge Jorge A. Solis of Dallas originally concluded the tract is not sufficiently distinct from actual currency."

Hmm. There is no such thing as a million dollar bill. Seems like that ought to be distinction enough. Maybe Judge Jorge should familiarize himself with US currency.
