Outlawed

Living in a society where Christianity is being increasingly outlawed, I find it easy to be countercultural. For me participating in street evangelism, were a group of us Christians come together to preach the Gospel and sing worship songs with our acoustic guitars as accompaniment in a public location is counter cultural.

In any major city you can find many worldviews being herald from street corners, while each simultaneously being embraced as true. Whether Allah, Krishna, Wicca or any other American pantheon, there is still only one true monotheistic God, which is Jesus Christ. In our postmodern society where freedom of belief is a right, legislation, public opinion and fear of alienation have stripped me of my right to profess Jesus as Lord of all. Making this statement publicly will affect me not only economically and socially, but also perhaps in the future, physically, with the ultimate sacrifice, life itself through martyrdom.

My statement to the world is the same as the three Hebrew boys gave Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon. “If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.”” – ‭‭Daniel‬ ‭3:17-18‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
