 Re: John Duncan Street Preaching

If you order his DVD I think its well worth it. All you have to do it e-mail him and tell him why you want the DVD and he will sent it to you. There is a suggested donation.

I loved the DVD.

If you watch that video you will clearly see how he without tears or any anguish tells people they don't have faith or love for God and that they are going to hell. Personally I am worried about this brother more then the people he is talking to. The message is without the Holy Spirit, anyone can go out there an bash people come on! I really don't think that this is a good picture AT ALL of what open air preaching should look like.

 Re:

Hmm.. How should one act in the open-air? I'm curious, which open-air preachers do you like, Greg? Do they have websites? I'm always interested in hearing other open-air preachers to learn from their mistakes or wisdom.

 Re:

John is a personal friend of mine who I can say is a solid brother.

He started open-air in 1993. He was a pastor who sold everything, bought an RV, and traveled from campus to campus with his wife for about 10 years. There were plenty of times he had no money, but God came through and John trusted Him by faith. Before we judge John let's ask ourselves, have we ever done that?

He's brought the gospel to 93 Campuses in 33 States and 3 Foreign Countries. Again lets ask ourselves, have we ever done that?

I confess myself that I don't weep nearly enough in the open-air. I sadly confess that I can easily count how many times I've wept while preaching. Before judging another, let's ask ourselves, how many times have we wept while preaching open-air?

It's far easier to criticize those who are "performing on stage" while we sit in our seats, but it's far harder to get on state ourselves.

Yes those clips on Johns site are some of the rougher clips of the DVD. But all throughout the DVD John does a great job both preaching as well as teaching, rebuking as well as encouraging. He persuades and reasons.

John is a far better open-air preacher then I am.

John has this quote from me on his DVD page:

Please Record More: "I watched all the video yesterday and loved it. We need more videos like this! I really encourage you to video tape many more. I'll be the first one to collect the whole set. I'm going to use the video to show to the guys I take out as training. Very great video. You reasoned, persuaded, taught, preached, the whole nine yards. It definitely has helped equip me for open-air preaching. Please record more!" - Jesse, Texas

http://www.gospeljohn.com/videos.htm

I've seen the entire DVD multiple times and have been greatly encouraged by it. So have other open-air preachers I have shown it too. I've also talked to John a great deal on the phone. Honestly, I don't know if any open-air preacher has impacted me more then brother John has.

John is faithful, self-sacrificing, solid in the Word, and is out only for the glory of God. I don't know of a preacher more genuine and sincere.

 Re:

Really brother? I'm surprised you are against someone who is preaching the gospel! Thank you, though, for that feedback, that's why I posted the link.

Do you know him? It seemed like his site was doctrinally sound...

More feedback welcomed!
In Christ,
-Eli

 Re:

Now I can know why the bible says be quick to listen and slow to speak. Perhaps the problem is just seeing those chosen clips can give a person the wrong opinion of him. Brother John said in an article that "Many of our modern methods only reach those that want to hear it." And it is true that "the Gospel is a confrontational message".

I suppose I recant my prior statements but do hope that what he is preaching is from the love of God, which doesn't want people to perish and not a sense of duty, etc. Thank you brother Jesse for sharing about him and your heart on the issue. Perhaps my negative stance on some open air preaching is not as much that it is wrong but rather there is BETTER.

My prayer truly is of the same as bro ravenhill's: "God of Whitefield, give us today men like Whitefield who can stand as giants in the pulpit, men with burdened hearts, burning lips, and brimming eyes. And, Lord, please do it soon!"

The stories and life of george whitfield or many others in his era as spurgeon tells of: "I have no time further to illustrate my subject by descriptions of the work of Christmas Evans and others in Wales, or of the Haldanes in Scotland, or even of Rowland Hill and his brethren in England." what lifes made sublime and truly shining blazing witnesses in wicked and perverse generations they lived in.

I am sorry if my comments prior at all caused any hindrance in people pursuing to open air preach or for the gospel of the kingdom to go forth.

 Re:

Brother, this thread has confused me
considerably...

I understand what you are saying about Whitefield but just because a preacher does not weep in the open-air doesn't mean he shouldn't preach, does it? To become like Wesley or Whitefield doesn't just happen, you can't just say: "I'm going to preach like Whitefield today." It takes the breaking and making of God to refine a person like that. Friends, I'm just being honest, I don't cry tears when I preach, I know the greats did but I'm not like them yet. Then should I not preach until I am the next George Whitefield? I am not being smart, I'm just a little... discouraged, feeling as if I maybe shouldn't be preaching. No, I know I should be.

God will shape my character, He knows my heart, He knows that I am willing, He alone knows the thoughts in my heart at night, He sees my tears when I'm alone. He has blessed the preaching already and despite the fact that I am young and learning, He, according to His purpose, shall cause me to grow.

Brother, I'm know what you are saying and I'm not taking anything personal... besides, you know what I'm saying too. I just felt like sharing what was in my heart just now.

God bless,
-Eli

What is the best way?

Edit: I do notice you said "some." Can you explain? I respect your opinion. I would like to hear more.
