The arrest of a street preacher has renewed concern over religious freedom for Christians in the United Kingdom.
Dale McAlpine, 42, was arrested in his home town of Workington, in Cumbria, last month after he mentioned homosexuality as one of a number of sins listed in the Bible, alongside idolatry, blasphemy, fornication, and drunkenness.
He said he refrained from speaking about homosexuality in his sermon but when a passerby inquired on the issue, told her it was a sin.
Earlier Today I Assisted A BROTHER IN CHRIST As He Was STREET PREACHING In Chicago.
A Sodomite Had "Head-Butted" Him For Preaching Against THE SIN OF BEING "GAY" & SODOMIC.
The STREET PREACHER Got A Bloody Nose As A Result Of The "Head-Butt".
The SODOMIC COWARD Ran Into The Street Traffic Which Was Heading Toward THE WATERTOWER BUILDING On Michigan Ave.--Avoiding ARREST FOR ASSAULT, BATTERY & DISTURBING THE PEACE !
Suddenly, A Crowd Of Youths Began Cheering The "Head-Butting" & Attempted To "Shout-Down" THE PREACHING OF THE GOSPEL !
I Was Alarmed & Thought The Youths Were Going To Physically "GANG-UP" On THE PREACHER; So, I Ran To His Side, Held Up A Sign Saying Something Like "GOD CALLS ALL TO REPENT" & Stood Steadfastly With Him.
Someone Had Called The Police TO ARREST THE ASSAULTING, BATTERING & DISTURBING SODOMITE.
Later, In The Pouring Rain, The Police Arrived & Dispersed The Unruly Crowd.
There Were No Arrests--BUT THE GOSPEL WAS PREACHED & WENT UNHINDERED !
I actualy started preaching in a Park in 1975. Even then there was a lot of hostility when we named particular sins such as homosexuality.(Of course it was our aim to point people to Jesus) But we would have never believed that it would be society at large and even the law that would one day be the source of persecution. God raise up more Street Preachers that will have the courage it takes to get the job done.
There are so few men willing to preach the glorious gospel on the streets in our country to the sinners who need to hear it, and these few are now easy targets for the sodomite community, who will no doubt stamp out this remnant.
Evangelical churches will discover too late, that all their freedoms have been taken away, their ability to obey the great commission severely hampered, and the possibility of increase through conversions almost nil.
Already it is noticeable that even Reformed Churches have become holy huddles, fellowships which know nothing about the world around them, which never speak to the sinners in their vicinity, and regarding obeying God.....have gone into retirement, hoping that THEY will never get arrested for being a Christian.
Does anyone know if this man was preaching in Workington when he was arrested, and if he was part of a church whose ministry was extended into the town centre?
1) "was arrested in his home town of Workington, in Cumbria, last month after he mentioned homosexuality as one of a number of sins listed in the Bible"
This implies the Bible is unlawful in the UK.
2) "McAlpine, who denied the charge, was released on bail on the grounds that he cease preaching."
Thus the requirement of the law is the prevention of preaching according to this act.
The Word of God is clear....
Lev 20:13 "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."
British law also is clear; - It is anti-God, therefore antiChrist!!!
Jude 7 "Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. 8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities."
Ro 1:18 For the WRATH OF GOD IS REVEALED from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness"
