     The area where we preach is called Democracy Plaza.   There are large blackboards with chalk available for people to write their ideas. A plaque says, "Democracy Plaza promotes diverse views and freedom of expression. Should hateful messages arise, they will be addressed as an opportunity to educate."
Sister Cindy had a lengthy conversation with Gina who was in tears, but would not repent.  Pray for her.
     As I stood upon a bench to express myself, a woman said, "I am going to pray for you; it is better that a millstone be hung around your neck and you be cast into the sea than to offend one of these little ones who believe in me." She should be saying this to her professors, but I doubt if she is.   Any education that is promoting truth will reinforce faith; typically, any faith which students had before entering the university is destroyed long before they graduate. This demonstrates that there is little truth promoted in the classroom. Later a girl parroted the same Bible verse which the woman quoted, so I am assume this verse is being used among the Christians to attempt to discredit the campus preachers. Both Micah Armstrong and Tom Short have visited IUPUI this fall.
Democracy Plaza is a huge area with lots of chalkboards to, "promote diverse views and freedom of expression."
     I had not been preaching long when a hefty woman screamed at me. I replied, "Repent you brazen woman." She rushed at me cursing. I supposed she was going to attack me but her boyfriend was able to restrain her and lead her away. Meanwhile, the police arrived and stayed for most of the afternoon. At one point there were four policemen. I did not get a crowd the first break.   We waited about 20 minutes and Cindy started addressing the few who passed by. Soon she gathered an audience of 75-100. We maintained those numbers until about 3 PM.
Bro. Mike Reed had an attentive session with a small crowd.
   I had difficulty getting any intelligent interaction and dialogue started. Student remarks were mostly inane. Twice I tried to give my testimony but gave up each time because of the inattention of the crowd. Mostly, I simply reproved, rebuked and exhorted with all longsuffering.   There was a black man, Ian, who claimed to be a Christian who kept asking questions. He said, "Do you realize that over half this crowd is not really listening?"
       I replied, "Of course, but that is not remarkable most students are not really listening to their professors; they are texting, daydreaming or whatever in the classrooms. Most did not really listen to Jesus, which is why he said to his audience, 'You have ears, but you hear not; you have eyes but you see not.'"
   Students kept trying to get Cindy to quote John 3:16. She refused, saying, "You do not deserve to hear that verse." When they persisted, Cindy said, "You quote the verse." They did. Cindy then said, "Now quote John 3:17-21." Of course, they could not recite these verses, but Cindy could and did. She remarked that the Christians on campus have hardened their heart to the message of holiness and were zealously defending sin.  
     Ian also walked around Cindy and harassed her; his message was to defend sin. On my second term I grew weary of his interruptions and called upon Mike.   Shortly after Mike took over, Ian left; not long after, most of the crowd departed. However, Mike had an attentive dozen which remained until 3 PM when they all disappeared. We did not make a serious effort to gather another crowd. We just exhorted individuals or small groups as they were passing.
There were different signs promoting the sodomite lifestyle all over the student center.  There was also a sign offering free HIV testing weekly. "... and receiving in themselves the recompense of their error which was fitting."
   Cindy managed to engage Gina in a lengthy conversation. Gina had been raised in church but was molested by a churchman at 10 years old. She admitted to carrying a heavy burden of bitterness and was in tears during much of the conversation. She was attentive as Cindy read Scriptures on how Jesus has "borne our griefs and carried our sorrows." Cindy even got the girl to cut her class in order to continue the witness which went on for over an hour. Cindy was disappointed that the Gina did not repent. Cindy did pray over her before she left.
     While I was exhorting students passing by, one boy went into a tirade and pointed at his genitals in a homosexual fashion. Within a few minutes he came and sat on the sidewalk beside me and rolled over as if he wanted to be sodomized. I reproved him and he sat on a sidewalk beside me. He seemed too far gone to dialogue with so I checked facebook on my I-phone. He asked, "What model is that?"
     I answered, "Number 4."
     "That's what I have," he replied.
     I discerned that he had had a quick attitude change and wanted to converse. He began asking intelligent questions and he had an agreeable response to my answers. After thirty minutes he had to leave but he said, "Forgive me for my outburst."   His was one of the quickest turnarounds which I remember.
October 9, 2012, Indiana University
     As Cindy was gathering the crowd several students asked me, "When are you going to preach?" A male approached me and said, "I do not agree with you on anything. But man you really know how to provoke discussion." Several of the students gave me private words of encouragement for standing up for what I believe in the midst of intense opposition.
   Bro. Jed, "provoking discussion at Indiana University!"
Someone put up the caution tape to separate us from the crowd.
     Several huggers desperate for affection were out today with their "free hugs" signs. At one point several gave me a group hug. I protested saying, "I might get the queer coodies from some of you!"   Group hugs are the students' shallow way of demonstrating their love.
     Sarah McK. (17) from Michigan is going to be ministering with us for the rest of the week. She gave her testimony today. She told when she said her first cuss word in the sixth grade, her first cigarette and first drink in the eighth grade. She thought both the cigarette and the alcohol were disgusting and gross. She snuck out of her parent's home at night at 15 to party. At 16 she surrendered to Christ. She has already read Finney's Systematic Theology twice. She aspires to be a campus preacher. All of her old friends are going to college; she is looking forward to preaching to them. The students accused her of being brainwashed. One boy informed her, "Graduating from high school is not an education."
     I have taken to asking students who claim to have read the Bible, "What is the central theme of the Bible?" Today, one student answered, "Hypocrisy." When I asked him to show that scripturally, he was at a lost. I explained, "Jesus has his severest denunciation for hypocrites."
Sarah,17, from Michigan, talked her mom into driving to Indiana so that she could preach with us for 4 days.  Here she is giving her testimony at Indiana University.
     Suzanna, a girl with a butch haircut and a chain smoker, I used as a bad example of female behavior. She said, "You do not know anything about me; I want to be a stay at home mom." When she said that, I soften against her. We dialogued considerably for the rest of the afternoon. She is an atheist, who evidently had bad parents. She claimed the central theme of the Bible was love, but she did not understand what love is. I agreed that love is a central theme in the Scriptures as exemplified in the sacrificial death of Christ. When she finally left, I announced to the crowd that I expected her to get saved.
Sister Pat had a great side session with this group. See the YouTube video below for part of the interchange.

     For about an hour I had about 25 quiet and sitting at my feet.   A girl asked, "Why are you not like this all of the time?" Cindy and Sister Pat had another attentive gathering surrounding them.   Mike had his usual small group.   Mike left for Michigan late in the afternoon.
Bro. Jed discusses Biblical truths with IU student.
     Patrick informed me that he read my book, Who Will Rise Up?, which I gave him last year. He seems to be coming around to the Christian perspective but he want to mix some Buddhism with Christianity. I showed him why that will not work. When I first met him a few years back he wore dreadlocks; now he has a clean-cut appearance.
     We left campus at 5 PM.

October 10, 2012, IU
     Soon after I started preaching a male student screamed, "I love sin."
     "Did you hear that," I shouted? "This man says he loves sin. Those who love sin hate God. Those who love God hate sin. Our love for God is equal to our hatred of sin. Anyone who sins does not love God or anyone else for that matter. All sinful acts are unloving acts. One cannot sin and love simultaneously."
This very irate IU student helped draw a crowd today. 
He stomps off...
He turns around to yell at Sis. Cindy again denouncing the, "stupid preaching"... all the while a crowd is gathering on the other side of Cindy... within an hour he was back and stayed for the remainder of the afternoon.
     It was towards the end of the break and I was not drawing a crowd. I decided it was a good time to call on the premier crowd drawer, Sister Cindy.   Indeed, she soon gathered 35-40 students. When we started it was cold and windy, especially for this early in October.
Here is the angry guy confronting Sis. Pat later in the day.
     When I took my turns, I had an attentive audiences. I was able to teach considerably on the atonement today and the spirituality of God's law. Mostly, students were surrounding me in close. I called upon Sarah at one point. Several objected that she was only 17.   Never mind that many of them are only 18. After Sarah more than held her own for about 15 minutes, Sister Pat took over.   Three boys followed her to the sidelines in the hopes of saving her from the cult she had joined. They were not believers. However, within a short time; they had completely changed their attitude when they discovered that Sarah was a thinker,  could rationally defend the faith and had considerable Biblical knowledge and understanding. They finally promised to read the Bible.
The two on the left and the one on the far right, all unbelievers, promised Sarah that they would read the Bible. Notice the angry guy is now listening to Sarah.
     As the main speaker was addressing the crowd, each of us had students inquiring of the rest of us on the sidelines. Some of our most effective ministry takes place on the edge of the main show, which is the sideshow. This is where we can often go deeper with the students and sometimes even pray with them.
This student grabbed the YOU DESERVE HELL sign from Cindy, bent it, cursed and threw it in the stream in the picture.  This was disappointing since Bro. Mike had spent a couple of hours making the sign.
   The sideshow at the carnivals of old might have semi-nude girls, tattooed men or women and other odd people with bodily piercings.   Usually, there were physically deformed people in the sideshow. Most of our audience is morally deformed. Sideshows have pretty much died out with so many people turning into freaks. Today, anyone holding up Biblical morals and walks fully clothed is considered an oddity.   The fairs and carnivals of old had barkers to call peoples' attention to the various shows. The Holy Ghost acts as the barker during the Brother Jed Travelling Show.  
Sarah used her monopod to retrieve the stolen sign which is almost like new.  Go Sarah!
   The atheists had their table set up when we arrived. They were passing out Brother Jed Bingo cards all afternoon.
   The carnal clashed with the spiritual. The spiritual prevailed as it always does although it may not seem that way at the time.
The sign thief returns to heckle Sarah.

October 11, 2012, Indiana State University
     It was national coming out day for the sodomites; they were serving punch and cookies in the center of fountain area, which is turned off for the season. There was also a fraternity group who had set up a cardboard camp and was raising money for homeless women and children. As soon as Cindy started preaching the homos with their signs gathered around Cindy. One sign read, "Closets are for clothes." Soon the fraternity also crowded around barking for money. I sat and held the YOU DESERVE HELL sign.   A student came up to me and said, "This is pandemonium."
Sis. Cindy had moved to the other side of the plaza but the sodomites followed her.  It was the only way they could get any attention. Cindy had not mentioned homosexual sin.
     A policeman came up and told me that I could not hold my sign that was causing a disturbance. He asked if I had a permit. I appealed to the first amendment. The policeman backed off and slowly had an attitude change. Three policeman conferred; the first one returned later and said he was not trying to stop me but just wanted to make sure there were no disturbances. I was agreeable. Meanwhile, Cindy continued preaching and ignoring the comments from those protesting her. She kept moving from one location in Dede Plaza to another. Wherever she went, the students followed.  
Bro. Jed was able to somewhat tame the ISU crowd.
     When I preached the students were extremely emotional and anti-intellectual. Homos and lesbos made up much of the crowd. There was one lesbian, Sarah, who listened all day last Thursday and again today. She has twin Sister, who is normal. When Pat was preaching, I called Sarah aside to ask what her parents thought. She read from her I-Phone a note her father had written when she came out last year. The father said he was proud of her for standing up for her feelings and that he would always have unconditional love for his daughter, blah, blah, and more blah. I asked about her grandparents. She said, "My grandparents think like you. They do not approve." 
Melissa, an ISU graduate student, gave a powerful testimony of deliverance from sin through faith in Jesus Christ.  She told Sis. Cindy that she started living holy after hearing Bro. Jed a few years ago.
     The turning point of the meeting occurred about 2:30 when Sarah and Melissa gave their testimonies. The students were respectful, quiet and attentive as these dynamic young ladies confessed to their past sins and explained how they came to the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation.
The ISU students listened to Melissa tell how God saved her life several times before she finally repented of her sins.
     From three until after five the students had a better attitude. Each of us had groups around us and we were able to effectively teach. I got into a long argument with a five point Calvinist on holiness. He claimed that I John was his favorite book. I had never had a student say that before. Regrettably the only verse of I John which he seemed to believe was 1:8.
Sarah. M. tells students the "HPV Holly" story and then gives her personal testimony.
Sis. Pat shared the truth with the small groups who encircled her all day.
October 12, 2012, (Columbus Day) Purdue University
     It was windy and only in the low fifties when I started; there was not a lot of traffic passing during the class breaks. I knew I would have to work hard to gather an audience.   I came on stronger than usual.   A Christian girl was the first to stop and she protested my aggressive manner. She claimed I was putting the students on the defensive, which is exactly what I wanted to do. Sinners are used to putting the Christians on the defensive. I believe in attacking sin and sinners.   The Sword of the Spirit is a deadly weapon, not merely some ceremonial sword. It wasn't long before the female was in tears.  
Sarah M. proclaiming the Message at Purdue University.  The atheists interrogated her.
     Meanwhile, a male, whom  I suspected was homosexual, stopped and protested. It did not take long to get a confession of sodomy out of him. Soon several were hugging the homosexual. He left for a while then returned in about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, the police showed up. I suspected that the homo had called the police. However, they said nothing to me and seemed to be listening to my message. Within 30 minutes I gathered a crowd which averaged 25-35 for most of the afternoon. One fellow came out during the first half hour with a sign he held all afternoon which read simply, "CITATION?" I pointed at him each time I quoted a Biblical reference.
There was a lot of reasonable dialogue today at Purdue.
   Sister Cindy took the day off campus to work on the website; Sister Pat took her turn for almost an hour. We did not get into the sexual issues as much as usual.   Purdue students are above the average student intellectually. So one can carry on a reasonable dialogue with many of them. I called upon young Sarah, who withstood the atheists' inquisition. However, after 15 minutes she looked towards me. Her mother picked her up to take her back to Michigan at 3:30.   She was a valuable addition to our team this week. It is convincing to have someone even younger than most of the students affirming our teaching.
Students seemed attentive to my points.
   I got into a lengthy and heated argument with a Calvinist who was pushing the doctrine of Christ's righteousness being imputed to the believer, while the believer remains sinful. So the believer is accounted as righteous when he is not according to his thinking. Adam's sin is accounted to a new born baby. He thought that believers still have some debt to the flesh to indulge its appetites. He also argued that man can do nothing to save himself. Yet, Peter said, "Save your selves from this perverse generation."-Acts 2:40.   Students seemed to be following our arguments.
    I preached until 4 PM; I lingered after I dismissed the crowd. The fellow holding the "Citation?" sign was the last to leave. He had expected me last Thursday. But a change of plans took me to ISU. He must have been watching for me all week. Many sinners were wounded (someone may even have been killed) today as we wielded the Word of God.  


Fall Semester 2012
     This is my tentative schedule for the Fall Semester 2012. There are so many campuses and so little time. Should anyone want to arrange a church or home meeting while I am in your area please contact me. Also, let me know if you are interested in scheduling formal debates with atheists, Muslims, or Christians, who disagree with my message or methods. One student leader recently contacted me that he wanted me to speak to the Young Republicans on limited government and free markets. I am still open to changes. I will be doing my tour of the Southwest and California in the Spring Semester 2013. Sister Cindy and Sister Pat will be accompanying me full time this year.  Any Christians, who are interested in joining us on the road for a while, or who want to meet us on campuses in your area, are welcome.  Remember to pray for the campuses that we have already preached on.  Bro.
