On one side of the street was a “Christian” man holding Bible signs and shouting bilious diatribes to the protesters across the street. On the other, whole mobs of anti-Bush, anti-Cheney, anti-meat, anti-Israel—anti-everything—children of the sixties and their anti-children, were gearing up for a good old-fashioned fist-shaking anger party. The only thing these people were for was protesting! (Please, you must read the start of this series by clicking here to get the whole context.)
What an exciting opportunity to share our faith, and we did, at the A.N.S.W.E.R. LA anti-war march in Hollywood. As intimidating as all this may seem, we were able to get a Gospel tract into nearly every hand of the would-be Socialists—and we preached in the open air during a strange ritual called a “die-in” (more on that next week).
How did we do it? The Apostle Paul wrote that he had “become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some.” (1 Corinthians 9:22) Our strategy was simple: We became “war-protesters.” Heck, I was even able to lead these people into a rhythmic chant of my own. But seeing is believing…
