Perturbed Pagans Persecute Pupils


It is always a treat to see new evangelism students in action, especially when they get picked on by angry sinners….

In Huntington Beach last Saturday, one newbie, Jay, ran up to me and was very excited. “I offered a $100 bill Gospel tract to a surfer,” he said, “and he shoved it back in my face!” Alphonso, another student, got the F-bomb dropped on him. I gave them an extra point each on their grade card—for righteous suffering.

At an upscale shopping center on Monday I got a piece of the angry action when I offered a Gospel tract to a pre-homeless looking lady, y’ know, older, hardened with a scowl, wearing sunglasses, heavyset. She needed a lift in her spirit—and the Lord. I plucked out my crisp Giant Money and asked, “Hi! Would you like a $100 bill?”

“Get that out of my face,” she growled.

Whoa! That took me by surprise. I tried again. “Are ya sure you don’t want a $100 bill?

“GET THAT OUTTA MY FACE!!!” she spat.

How else can anyone experience such excitement and receive so many blessings from the Lord except when sharing your faith?


  1. Matthew 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
    12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
