The St. Petersburg Times recently published an encouraging article on street preachers who appeared in Tampa to share the gospel during the Super Bowl. (See “Super Bowl XLIII is no game for street preachers”; see also “Super Bowl Outreach ‘09”). These are not the crazies with the sign boards saying God hates fill in the blank or you are all going to burn. Rather, their goal is to share the Gospel with as many people as possible and hope that many will repent and receive Jesus as their savior. These individuals are willing to stand in enemy territory, face criticism and ridicule, to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is amazing that their biggest critics are not the atheists, but the other “Christians.” Thanks to the St. Pete Times for publishing this article and to the street preachers for hitting the Super Bowl.
