Open Air Preaching

Christmas, Cowards and Killing

November 24, 2012. Today I led a team of Christians to share the gospel with folks outside the Ohio State vs Michigan game. About 8 of us went to OSU’s campus from 8:45-11:45 am. I preached the entire time, while others passed out tracts or preached on another corner. After watching the first three quarters […]

Report Concerning 180 Day @OhioState

To start, let me provide a little background information about how this entire project started. On Thursday, September 27, I received an email containing the following: We have a donor who is interested in getting 1000 “180” DVD’s into the hands of young voters on college campuses in time for them to understand the content […]

Miami (OH) @ The Ohio State University & Why I’m Rooting for Michigan

September 1, 2012. The Redhawks of Miami University (not “The U”) are visiting Columbus to face off against Urban Meyer’s Buckeyes. The Tressel era is over. Memories of Appalachian State vs. That Team Up North swirl in my head. Hopefully, we’ll be ready to play. But I had a different mission today than to watch […]

Courageous Preaching?

Alright, I’ll admit, that was a slight play on words. I just wanted to share this video with you from September 30, 2011.

My local church invited hundreds of people, (specifically targeting law enforcement, emt, fire and military), to see the new movie Courageous on opening night. The generous God-loving folks of Berean Baptist Church completed funded the showing for about 188 people who actually showed up that evening.

Our goal was to share this inspiring movie with them, a small bag of “goodies,” and the message of hope that lies only through faith in Christ.

Testimony of Salvation in Christ

To hear my testimony of salvation, listen here or click this link: If you would like a CD, leave a comment and I’ll mail you a CD.

Acts 4:12

Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for this is none under name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.

Satan has created counterfeit religious systems; these systems teach partial truths, such as the truth that there is such a thing as sin. Satan is entirely satisfied if you believe you are a sinner, as long as you don’t obey Christ. So false systems have been created which allow men and women to believe they are a sinner, but to deny the truth spoken in Acts 4:12. Neither is there salvation in ANY OTHER (emphasis my own). The apostles not only proclaimed that salvation is available in the Christ, but affirmed Jesus’s own declaration that there is NO salvation in any other. Jesus isn’t an “option.” He is not one of many possible paths to God. He is the only path, and the only path to salvation. Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Islam, Catholicism – these are all religions that deny Christ as the only savior, the only provision for salvation. Christ isn’t one of a number of God’s to put on your shelf, He’s God almighty, solitarily! He’s doesn’t open the door for you to work your way to God, or prove your righteousness to Him; He is the only provision and all the provision!
