THE PHANTOM

January 30, 2012, Sam Houston State

     As I was sitting on my stool waiting to preach, a woman, who appeared to be in her thirties, stopped to stare at me for a moment.  Then she walked up to me with an inquisitive look. 

      "I am here to preach Jesus Christ and him Crucified," I said, before she asked her question. 

      She smiled and answered, "I wanted to make sure you were for real."

      No doubt, I was a usual looking old character in my black suit and black shirt, wearing my ten gallon hat, and holding my crucifix staff.  I can understand why someone might think I was a phantom.

      "I like your walking stick.  I am glad you are here to preach," she said as she walked away. 

"I am here to preach Jesus Christ and him crucified."

 

      This campus has one of the strongest Christian presences of any of the campuses that I visit.  The Chi Alpha group of the Assemblies of God has several hundred at SHSU.  The Christians have been relatively supportive on this campus, which I started preaching on four or five years ago.  Today several came up to personally compliment me and encourage me for my efforts.  Initially, I drew an audience of 25-30 and turned the meeting over to Sister Pat, who doubled the size of the crowd at the next class break.

     Sister Pat always promotes holiness.  In order to advance dialogue she likes to go through the crowd asking individuals "Are you a Christian?"  At a place like SHSU they often answer yes.  "Are you living holy?"  If they answer in the affirmative, she asks, "Are you a virgin?"  She usually does not get a positive response to that question.  "Your private parts are sacred," she says.  Few students believe that since so many of them have at least succumbed to self-abuse, if not fornication.

Sis. Pat asks Sam Houston students, "Are you living holy?"

 

      While I was listening to Pat a girl asked me, "Why do you have to be so mean?"  I answered, "Do you not know that it is the goodness of God which calls men to repentance?"-Romans 2:4.  She added, "Do you have to tell people they are going to Hell?"  I answered, "Knowing that men without Christ are damned, it would be mean of me not to warn them of the consequence of their sin, which is Hell-fire." 

     During my second session, about half of my audience sat down at my feet which made for an effective teaching situation.  I taught on various things and related my testimony to mostly attentive ears.  The most vehement opposition came from a lesbian who was quite offended when I told her she was pretty enough to get herself a man.  She stomped off.   

      About 2:15 I called on Sister Doris, who has a good strong preaching voice and knows how to project her words.  She preaches the Cross and relates it to sanctification effectively.  "If you want God in your lives you must obey him," she exhorts.  My team does not tolerate any religious excuse to sin, such as a sin nature from birth that still prevails in the life of a believer.  Despite Doris' good preaching, the crowd petered out slowly.  When she turned the meeting back to me, the only students were sitting off at a distance conversing.  I hoped to build up the crowd again at the 2:50 break but I was unsuccessful.  I thought that we might leave campus early since after 3 PM it is difficult to rebuild an audience.  I started conversing with a girl who identified herself as Muslim, who was quite liberal in her beliefs.  She had a gentle and thoughtful spirit which I liked.  Eventually, others joined our conversation until I had about a dozen people around me again.  By4 PM, I was down to a half-dozen and a Christian fellow started witnessing so I decided to leave the students to him.

EYE BALL TO EYE BALL

January 31, 2012, Sam Houston State

     It looked like the rain was going to be the big story today.  Shortly after we arrived on campus there was a heavy downpour.  By the time I started preaching the precipitation had somewhat subsided.  Nevertheless, half way though the break the rained started coming down hard again.  Still a group gathered around me under umbrellas.  They were mostly females who professed Christianity but they took issue with my approach and preaching against Hell.  One of them who had a pretty good knowledge of the Bible tried to promote Rob Bell, who questions the doctrine of eternal damnation.  Apparently, he is influential among many students.  The other main issue was holiness.  Of course, I knocked down all their religious excuses to sin.  Eventually, I got several of them to admit that one can live holy but that nobody actually does.  In the end the Rob Bell girl, who is planning on going to seminary, asked if she could pray for me.   She actually prayed a good prayer with the others laying hands on me.  Usually I am hesitant to allow Christians in these circumstances to pray for me because they sometime will pray something like, "Show Brother Jed the error of his ways and lack of love, etc."  However, the girl did not do any of this.  I think the gal has a lot of potential; I pray that seminary does not ruin her as it does with many.

Bro. Dave and Sis. Doris weather the heavy downpour before the start of a great day.

 

     Meanwhile, Sister Doris had gathered a significant crowd around her; she was not cutting them any slack.  Some of the open air preachers are absolutely against women preachers.  The laborers are few; if a woman is willing to lift up her voice, I am all for her, especially when it comes to evangelistic preaching.  Some say a woman ought not to teach men under any circumstances; however, there are very few real men on a college campus.  Most of them have been effeminized.  So the lady campus preachers might as well be speaking to a virtually all female audience. 

Sis. Doris was especially anointed today and really had the attention of the SHSU students.

 

     Bill Hamilton from Houston joined me on campus today.  He served Campus Crusade for Christ for many years.  However, because he received the call to preach in the open-air, he was kicked out of CCC or CRU as they call themselves these days.  He brought a street preacher friend, Dave, with him.  Dave is a tall fellow who held a sign listing damnable sins from 1 Corinthians 6:9-10.  The sign from the ground was well above his waist and about three feet wide.  It was quite an attention getter.  Bill said he was not going to preach but he ended up getting into the fray in defending Creationism against a persistent and loud mouthed evolutionist.  Dave was active all day; he is very bold.  He had a sense of humor similar to my own, which I liked.  Dave had never been on campus before.  By 2 PM the rain was no longer a factor.  Throughout much of the afternoon there was more than one meeting going on at a time.

     At one point when I was sitting alone, a male student paused in front of me, spit at my feet, and as he walked away, he said, "God is dead.  And I am glad my generation killed him."

      By mid-afternoon the students were beside themselves and crowded around us and giving us little space.  The battle was raging; I could see the whites of their eyes; I was firing both barrels; smoke was everywhere.  There were several lesbians which were close to me all afternoon.  If a man with self-control had been in their lives, perhaps they never would have ended up lesbians.  These types of girls have had so many men around them, who just treated them as a piece of meat that they come to hate men.   Soon they start to think of themselves as merely sexual objects, but they turn their affection toward females.  Lately, I have been taking the students through a little exercise:  "Now imagine you are in the shower.  Look down and if you do not see anything that means you are a woman, not a lesbian, not a bisexual, not a transgender, but a woman, a girl, a female.  Now if you look down and see something that means you are a man, not a homosexual, not a bisexual, not a transgender but a man, a boy a male.  It is very simple young people to figure out what you are." 

      Somehow the rumor was going around that I said all blacks were going to Hell.  This is a sign that students are getting desperate.  When they cannot rationally discredit what I teach, they will make things up.  Part of this is the old tactic of the left to call conservatives racists, bigots, homophobes because we do not want to grant certain so-called rights to groups, who primarily identify themselves by their race, sexual practices or their sexual identity.  Actually, there is no such thing as group rights.  There are only individual rights.

      Dave and Doris left for their camp ground about 4 PM, Bill and Dave left shortly before 5 PM for Houston.  Sister Pat and I stayed around until 5:30.  For the last half hour I had a quiet group around me who were intently listening to my every word.

Christian girl leads students in prayer for Bro. Jed.

 

       At the end of the day a Christian boy for asked my forgiveness.  He said, "I should not have called you out.  I was influenced by the emotion of the crowd."  I appreciated his honesty.  This so often happens that Christians allow the crowd reaction to influence them to oppose me.  Instead of siding with God against sin, they end up siding with the devil in support of sin.  Many are more interested in pleasing their peers than they are in pleasing God. 

     It was an exciting day!

"NEVER DAUNTED, WE CANNOT FALTER"

February 1, 2012, Texas A&M

     The atheists' club was waiting for me with signs promoting unbelief.  I jumped on a bench and proclaimed, "Sound the trumpet, let the battle begin!  Christian vs. atheists, right vs. wrong, truth vs. the lie, God vs. the devil.  I am ready to fight until death to defend the faith.  I am prepared to take on all challengers and pretenders.  I stand before you in full armour." 

     It did not take long to gather a crowd which at times reached into the hundreds, just with those gathered around me.  There were more that surrounded Dave and Doris and Bill and Dave and Sister Pat.

It did not take long to draw a huge crowd at Texas A&M.

 

      My first hour, I devoted almost exclusively to apologetics.  After almost an hour of reasoning with the students and deflecting all their vain thoughts, Chris had the audacity to hand me the following note which open by quoting 1 Peter 3:15-16 and he commented:  "I admire your passion for the gospel, but please do it with grace, truth must come gracefully, show Christ through love, and win peoples' hearts, you will never argue anyone into the Kingdom.  I'll pray for you and encourage you to keep your passion for sharing the gospel but please do it gracefully."

      If we cannot argue anyone into the Kingdom, then why give a reason for the hope that it is us to those who ask?  Few men are going to be instantly convinced.  Men will give counterpoints; we must respond with sound arguments.  Jesus argued with men; Paul argued with the people in the market place of Athens.  Faith is an intelligent decision to submit to Truth.  Oh well, at least the man appreciated my passion.  Religious fervor is generally lacking on campus and in our churches.

Atheist mockingly "preaches" with Bible in hand.

 

     1 Peter 3:14 is applicable to my situation, "AND DO NOT FEAR THEIR INTIMIDATION, AND DO NOT BE TROUBLED."  I will say that I have never been intimidated or troubled by a crowd of heathen students no matter how much they rage.  Long ago, God made my face strong against their faces, and my forehead against their foreheads.  He has set my face like flint.-Ezekiel 3:8-9, Isaiah 50:7.   What have I to fear against these empty headed Philistines?

      I called upon Sister Pat who engaged a Moslem.  She was prepared because she is reading a book, Islam and the Son of God.  Sister Pat also pressed the need for holy living to which professing Christians quickly and vehemently objected.  Then a few surrounded me to defend sin and tried to convince me that no one could live holy.  After an hour Sister Pat turned the meeting back to me and I did not stop preaching until almost sunset.

      The battle was so intense that I lost track of time and was surprised to notice that it was 4 PM.             

      At 5:30, I started to leave when several Christians surrounded me to try to correct by method and message.  I said, "No, I am here to correct, reprove and exhort you.  I am here to show you how evangelism should be done.  You people are making no waves (only ripples) with your sin excusing doctrines and your friendship evangelism.  You need to join with me and oppose sin, beginning with resisting sin in your own lives.  Then boldly and loudly proclaim the Word of the Lord!" 

"The battle was so intense that I lost track of time."

 

       We left campus at 6 PM; we had started preaching at 11:20 AM.  We had a full and productive day of warfare.  We emerged from the battle unscathed.  "This is the victory that overcomes the world even our faith."

     As I write in my journal I am reminded of my old alma mater's fight song:

"Indiana, Our Indiana" 

Indiana, our Indiana
 
Indiana, we're all for you!
 
We will fight for the cream and crimson
 
For the glory of old IU
 
Never daunted, we cannot falter
 
In the battle, we're tried and true
 
Indiana, our Indiana,
 
Indiana we're all for you! I-U!
 

 

If Indiana's glory was worth fighting for, how much more the crimson tide which flows from the Cross?  We are daily driven into the spiritual wilderness by the Spirit of God to be tried by the devil and we have always proven ourselves to be true in the rampant.  After all, we are to be loyal sons of the Cross.  Fight, fight, fight for the sake of the Gospel! 

Open air preacher, Bill Hamilton, joined us on campus for several days.

"WILT THOU BE MADE WHOLE?"

February 2, 2012, Texas A&M

     Students began to gather as I was waiting for the class break.  I overheard some of the conversation of those who were about 30 feet from me, a few of whom had Bibles in hand:  "He says he doesn't sin.  We are all sinners.  He says Christians are perfect."  I decided to take the offensive on the holiness issue rights away, I stood up and pointed at Dave's sandwich board sign which reads on the front, "Jesus said, Go and sin no more."  I expounded on the story of the woman caught in adultery pointing out that she did not excuse her sin as so many on campus have been doing the last two days. 

Bro. Dave's sign reads, "Jesus said go and sin no more." Today the holiness message was the issue at Texas A&M

 

     I continued, "Jesus said to the lame man whom he healed at the pool of Bethesda, 'Sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.'  He did not say to the adulteress or to the lame man, 'Sin less.'  He certainly did not say, 'Sin daily and thought word and deed.'  He issued a command!  Holiness is not an option.  It is not something we may or may not receive in this life; it is something we must achieve if we are going to have eternal life."

     Any one who professes Christianity and continues to sin is like the lame man at the pool who had his infirmity for 38 years.  It is a shame that we have people who have been claiming Christ for years, who have not learned to overcome sin.  Our churches are like the "great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water pool."-John 5:3.  These sick folks are paralyzed with fear, refusing to confront their own sin.  And they know if they cannot overcome their own sin, then they cannot meet head-on the sin of the world. 

     Jesus asked the infirm man, "Wilt thou be made whole?"  This is the question I daily ask sinners, "Will you be made holy?"  One must will to be righteous, not simply desire righteousness.  Sin is a product of the will, a refusal to do what one knows he ought to do.  Like the lame man at Bethesda, hypocrites make all sorts of excuses why they cannot be holy, even having the audacity to misuse the scriptures to justify their sin and hypocrisy. 

     The lame man pleaded, "I have no man to put me into the water."  But the man, Christ Jesus, commanded him, "Rise, take up thy bed, and walk."  And immediately the man was made whole.  Men rarely become wholly sanctified in this life because they think that sanctification is a lifelong process, which can never actually be achieved until the next life.    They have sanctification confused with maturity.  When men choose to be holy by obeying the commands of our Lord, they will be made whole.  The lame man had to rise up; he had to do the walking; he had to believe the Lord that it was possible for him to walk.  He had to act on the Word.  Men need to have faith that it is possible for us to live holy or they will never be holy. 

     "And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."-1 Thessalonians 4:18.

"Any one who professes Christianity and continues to sin is like the lame man at the pool who had his infirmity for 38 years,"  Bro. Jed tells the students.

 

      I wrote, Walking in the Spirit:  A Liberating Commentary on Romans 6, 7 & 8, which commands men to be wholly sanctified.  I exhort men to continuously and habitually walk in the spirit and not fulfill, at all, the lusts of the flesh.  Sin will make a believer impotent and incapable of begetting other men into God's family.  Alas, men still prefer the bondage of Egypt instead of advancing into the promised land of holiness.   

      As the hour progressed, I was unrelenting in proclaiming godliness asking students, "Why do you think that it is called the Holy Bible?  Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5:48, "Be ye therefore perfect even at your Father which is in heaven is perfect.'  Paul said to young Timothy, 'All scripture is given by inspiration of God, . . . That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.'"

     Finally, someone interrupted me and said, "We are to strive for perfection." 

     Jesus did not say strive, he said 'Be.'  Paul said, 'For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.'  Don't you people know anything about sanctification?  To be sanctified means to be separated from the world, the lusts of the flesh and the pride of life.  Christianity is not a religion based upon works or striving; it based upon faith.  We need to learn to rest in him and his work; he has promised to purify us."

     "Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."-2 Cor. 7:1.

      Many impotent students joined in pleading for sin, coming up with all sorts of religious reasons why they had to sin.  The holiness issue was the main subject of the day.  I had to explain 1 John 1:8 and Romans 7 numerous times.  Psalm 51:5 was read to me several times, which gave me the opportunity to teach on the nature of sin, which is a selfish choice, not a gene or inherited substance.

"Jesus did not say, go and sin daily in thought, word and deed," Bro. Jed

 

     In the middle of the afternoon it started raining heavily; the large crowd mostly scattered for shelter; however, several encircled me to hear more as I preached under my umbrella.  Some of the students simply stood in the downpour.  After an hour the rain stopped and the large crowd returned. 

     A secondary issue was my approach to evangelism.  The atheists were out again today with their signs but they were less of a factor than yesterday since I was getting my main opposition from Christians.  One atheist was holding a sign which listed alleged contradictions in the Bible; so pointing to his sign, I put these verses in context and instructed on hermeneutics.

     At 6:30 there were still 30 or so students hanging around.  Some were talking with me and others speaking with Sister Pat.  There were also a few other pockets of students standing around and talking about Biblical issues.  By late in the afternoon I noticed somewhat of a change of attitude in some of the professing Christians.  They seemed more interested in learning how to live holy.  Also, I clarified my position on Christian perfection.  "I am not saying that Christians are unable to sin; I am teaching that we are able not to sin."

      I invited my group to walk back to the parking lot with me and I would give them complimentary copies of my book, Walking in the Spirit.  Six students followed us back to my car to get their books.     

      Cindy's bridesmaid, Susie, and her husband, Enrique, drove up from Houston to take us to dinner, two of their children and four of their friends joined us for dinner.  I had been invited by a Christian student, Matt, to come to his Bible study at 8:30 in his apartment to answer questions.  Our whole dinner party came with me to the study.  The questions were not hostile and dealt mainly with holiness and confrontational evangelism. 

     Both Susie and Enrique engaged in the dialogue, Susie told a humorous story about how when she first heard me as a sheltered 20 year old Catholic girl at Louisiana State University, she thought, "I can not listen to this man he is cussing.  He is using the words like whore and whoremonger."  But she was provoked to read the Bible and discovered the strong language, which the Bible uses to condemn sin.  Enrique first heard the gospel from me at LSU when he was as a freshman.  He is from a prominent family in Nicaragua.  His uncle was Somoza.  It was helpful to have Enrique, who is now a financial consultant, confirming what I had been teaching. 

      I gave each of the students a copy of Walking in the Spirit.  We left at 10 PM; we had a very full, productive and unforgettable day of ministry.

Sis. Doris takes away every excuse that the sinner has to sin!

 

     Later, Matt, the leader of the Bible Study, wrote on my FB wall, "Brother Jed, Thank you for coming to teach us Thursday. You really gave us a newfound understanding that Christians are called to be without sin. I believe it is because today's brand of Christianity that tolerates so much daily sin that our fellowship with the Lord is broken daily. Perhaps this is why you don't see others healed by being in the shadow of a believer today? We must be urgent; there is a generation that doesn't understand the difference between confession of sin and repentance of sin. Confession isn't enough."

THE NOISE OF BATTLE

February 3, 2012, Texas A&M

      My opening text was Hebrews 4:12, "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword."  On one edge is God's love, but on the other edge is God's wrath.  God's wrath is not the opposite of his love; it is an expression of his love, the love that disciplines.  On one edge is God's grace, but on the other edge is his law.  "The law was our schoolmaster bringing us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith."-Gal 3:24.  On one edge is the Lord's mercy and forgiveness.  On the other edge is his justice and judgment.  On one edge is the promise of heaven; on the other edge is the warning of Hell.  "Behold the goodness and severity of God!"-Rom 11:22.

       The crowd gathered quickly and was relatively subdued as I pierced hearts with Truth.  There were some interruptions but generally I was able to stick with this theme for 30 minutes.  Christian students have problems with my ministry because they have rarely heard preaching which rebukes, reproves, corrects and instructs in righteousness.  I fear with many ministers, the Word of God is not wielded as sword but used as a feather tickling men's ears.

Sodomite Disturbance

 

       There was distraction when a sodomite walked up dressed in a robe, wearing sandals, a wig and a fake beard.  When he started waving the rainbow flag, I opened my rainbow umbrella announcing that we Christian are taking back the rainbow.   The next distraction was an female who got in the middle of the crowd and announced that she was once a Christian but was now a pagan.  Within the hour, an atheist claimed that there is a contradiction concerning the dates of Jesus' birth.  I tried to address that issue but a few of the Christians began to defend the scriptures.  I do not like to be interrupted by Christians; however, it is good experience for them to have to defend the Bible to hostile skeptics.  Soon there was a large circle of atheists and Christians arguing among themselves concerning alleged contradictions in the Bible.  Others gathered closer to me.  For the rest of the afternoon I never did regain, nor did I try, the attention of everyone.  I had profitable and often in depth conversations concerning original sin, free-will, omniscience, [God knows all there is to know.] and other theological issues.  I was asked about Calvinism.  So I gave a teaching on the TULIP, explaining why I do not hold to any of the five points of Calvinism.    

     There never did seem to be a good time to switch speakers.  Sister Pat spent her day either talking individually to students or small groups.  There was a number of Christians in the crowd who were taking advantage of the situation; instead of fighting with me, they were witnessing to the lost.

"We are taking back the rainbow," Bro. Jed said to the sodomite who waved the rainbow flag.   Students take pictures with their i phones.

 

      Some expressed their disappointment that I was going on to TSU and UT next week.  They asked me to stay on.  This campus is very fertile ground.  But others need to hear the gospel as well.  I gave these people 19 hours of teaching over three days.  And I gave out about 20 of my books.  It started raining about 4 PM and we lost most of the crowd.  Nevertheless, I still had a dozen or so around me until 5:30 when it started pouring.  Sister Pat also had a little audience.  And there were still some Christians witnessing to the lost.

      Someone asked me yesterday about quiet time.  I addressed that question more thoroughly today.  Of course, it is important that we have a time when we set ourselves apart to communicate with the Lord.  Quiet time is an emphasis of campus Christian leaders. 

      "But to every thing there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven."  There is a time to be quiet and pray; there is also a time to hate and a time to war."--Ecc. 3:8. The latter time is sorely missing in the church, and probably the former as well.

      I wonder what Christian students are hearing in their much promoted quiet time.  Are they hearing from the Lord?  Does the Lord give them all these excuses to sin?  Does the Lord tell them to go forth and say to the world, "God loves you and he has a wonderful plan for your life?"  Does the Lord tell them not to fight but to peacefully coexist with the world? 

     When it was time for kings to go forth to war, David stayed in Jerusalem while his men were fighting.  Hence David in his quiet time fell into adultery with Bathsheba.  When we are aggressively fighting sin in the world, we do not have time to practice sin.-1 Peter 4:1.

"How many of you are Christians?"

 

     The children of Israel were fearful when they faced the Red Sea and Pharaoh's armies were behind.  They criticized Moses for leading them out of Egypt where they labored in the security of slavery.  Evidently, Moses took some quiet time to petition the Lord.  And the Lord said unto him, "Wherefore criest thou unto me?  Speak unto the children of Israel, that thy go forward."-Ex 14:15.     

      It was no longer the time to pray.  It was time for Moses to take resolute action and lead the people across the sea.  So Moses lifted up his staff, and stretched out his hand over the sea and divided it: and the faint hearted people went forth on dry ground through the midst of the sea.

      We sound the battle cry daily on campus.  The noise of battle is blasting as we clash with the heathen.  At the same time, we fend off professed believers who refuse to fight the enemies of God, nor do they want anyone else going to war against evil. 

Bro. Jed autographs his biography for the lead atheist on campus.

 

      At one point I asked, "How many are Christians?  Many raised their hand.  I asked, "How many have read the Bible through?"  One raised her hand.  I responded, "You are a pathetic bunch." 

      Later a girl admonished me for calling her pathetic because she had not read the Bible through.  She was 19 and claimed to have known the Lord since she was seven, but she had not in all that time even read the entire NT.  I had quite a session with her for about 15 minutes as she tearfully held her ground defending her indifference to the Bible.  I cut her no slack because of her tears but pressed the sword in deeper.  I asked, "How do you expect to pass your courses without reading the textbooks?  If you had a fiancÚ overseas fighting a war, would you neglect his love letters?"    

     The corps of cadets at Texas A&M is the largest uniformed student body outside of the military academies.  There are usually a significant number of cadets in my audience.  Cadets march past my campus pulpit by the hour as I preach. 

Cadets at Texas A&M listen to the preaching. Christians have marching orders too!

 

       The Bible contains the church's marching orders.  No wonder the church is not on the march.  She has not read her orders.  She is in the slumber of sleep.  The prophet cried, "My soul, my soul! I am pained at my very heart; my heart makes a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because you have heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war."-Jeremiah 4:19.  Where is the spirit of prophesy among these students?  Who will sound the alarm of war?  

      "If the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?"-1 Cor 14:8.  Daily we attempt to muster troops in the Lord's army.  Who will volunteer?  Cadet graduates from Texas A&M have served in every armed conflict of the U.S. since 1876, over 225 have served as generals or flag officers.  Alas, today A&M students were displaying and waving the gay flag, how pathetic, how wretched!  Who is on the Lord's side?  Will no one take up arms for the Lord? 

Student who had invited Bro. Jed to speak at a campus Bible study witnesses on the sidelines.

    

       All afternoon the Christians were vociferously defending sin.  Towards evening, a boy who had been quietly sitting beside me and intently looking upon me for an hour stood up and said to my opponents,  "I am not a Christian, but are you people saying that it is impossible to obey God consistently?  Are you saying that you cannot keep from doing wrong?  If so, that does not make any sense."  Often the children of the world are wiser than the children of the light.

      Sister Pat informed me of a girl who had opposed me last year when she was backslidden.  Since then she has been reading my internet writings; she admitted to Pat that she had been wrong and I was right all along.
