Bob Jones. He's 70 years old, going through hard times and he is looking for relatives. He doesn't believe he will live much longer. Steve Pivovaroff's wife was able to provide Bob with a Sandwich and drinks. I asked him if he believed in God and he said yes. I then asked him whom was he putting his trust into saving him from his sins and he said his trust was in Christ alone. He knew verses of scriptures and we encouraged one another and then I prayed for him and we hugged and he was soon on the bus headed for another part of town.

Nickname "Flocko" He lives on the streets. He heard us preach the Word of God. He said he wants to get right with God. I gave him a bible and he was showing me his mural that he was painting. He wanted to get off the streets and so another Christian brother was able to find a place for him to stay for the night.

Tagger EYGK

My neighbor Arnaldo paints over graffiti along the outside of his property. Taggers have no respect for God or creation. When I was young and stupid and I didn't know better I was just as bad or worse. A tagger needs to know that God is angry with the wicked every day. And that God has appointed a day when each of us will die and then comes judgement. Each of us will spend eternity in one of two places. Heaven or Hell. Jesus said the way is narrow that leads to life and there are few that find it and He also said to strive to enter through the narrow gate for many I tell you will seek to enter but will not be able.

"As for man, his days are like grass; As a flower of the field, so he flourishes. When the wind has passed over it, it is no more, And its place acknowledges it no longer. But the lovingkindness of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, And His righteousness to children’s children, To those who keep His covenant And remember His precepts to do them." Psalm 103:15-18

And have friends help you hand them out.

The Pope and the Papacy (5/1/2005) by John MacArthur

The Pope and the Papacy (51/2005) by John MacArthur

"In the long war on the truth, the most formidable, relentless and deceptive enemy has been Roman Catholicism. It is an apostate, corrupt, heretical, false Christianity, it is affront for the kingdom of Satan. The true church of the Lord Jesus Christ has always understood this. And even through the Dark Ages from 400 to 1500, prior to the Reformation, genuine Christian believers set themselves apart from that system, and were brutally punished and executed for their rejection of that system. It's not my purpose tonight to go into all that is Roman Catholicism and we will do that in the fall, we will do that. We'll take a look at it from many angles. But those believers throughout those centuries along with genuine and discerning believers today understand this is a false system."

1) It has a false priesthood.

2) It has a false source of revelation, tradition and the magisterium.

3) It has illegitimate power granted to it by this magisterium, this papal curia.

4) It engages in idolatry by the worship of saints and the veneration of angels.

5) It conducts a horrific exaltation of Mary above Christ and even God.

6) It conducts a twisted sacrament of the Mass by which Jesus is sacrificed again and again.

7) It offers false forgiveness through the confessional.

8) It calls for the uselessness of infant baptism and other sacraments.
