Sermon of the Week: "Open Air Gospel Preaching"
Our JPBC interns read Walter Chantry's little classic Today's Gospel: Authentic or Synthetic? (Banner of Truth, 1970) last week and we discussed it in our staff meeting on Monday. We had a good discussion of how to do evangelism with integrity and what it means to share the gospel. Not long afterwards I watched this video sermon of Robert McCurely of Greenville Presbyterian Church preaching the gospel to what looks like mostly disinterested passers-by (of course, that's probably because everyone in Greenville is already a Christian--right?). McCurely does not hold back from winsomely preaching the reality of sin, the judgement of God, and the grace of Christ.
