There are any number of street preachers out there that are more inline with what Jesus intended that we do than the churches we see. But are those preachers doing enough? I mean. Repeating words of Jesus are only going to go so far. We need to break things down in words that can touch every person at their own level. Instead of telling them to "Go and Sin no more". We should instead be explaining to them how and why living the life they have is no good for them or for anyone else. Because our life doesn't just affect us. It affects others. When we live a life that promotes Sin, we are helping to reinforce it in the lives of others. Instead, we should be living an example that revolves around eradicating Sin. Not just for ourselves. But for others. Being the stereotypical street preacher doesn't get taken serious enough today to justify doing it. Because it is already stigmatized. The idea is to educate people of the Truth. Tossing it out into the wind might have worked 2000 years ago. But today, people need more than just declarations and confusing statements. They need laymens terms. Tell them why the traditional lifestyle is bad and what it truly does. Give them alternatives. You can reason to an extent without compromising Biblical scripture. And we would be more productive to work this way instead of screaming through a speaker.
