Brother Jed At Your College Campus

Tue Sep 17, 2002 9:14 am

Today, Brother Jed was condemning us all to hell on campus at the University of Minnesota. He travels to campuses throughout the US. Anybody else seen him lately?

Not sure if he's the same guy, but we used to have somebody like that while I was in college. Used to scream "whore" at all the girls wearing sorority letters.

I guess whether Greek letters are "tacky" really depends on your environment. While it seems silly now, looking back I can see why 18-22 year olds feel a need to identify with a group during their first few years away from home and among a sea of 20,000 people.

He's at the University of Florida all the time. My friend got a book about "confrontational evangelism" written by him last year.

It sounds like Brother Jed is not paying attention to the words of Christ
in Matt. 7:1 1"Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

He seems to also missing the real message of 1 Corinthians 6; I'm paying close attention to verse 11, but I'm starting at verse 9, so you know how many like this Brother Jed take some things out of context
9Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders 10nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

Sexual Immorality

12"Everything is permissible for me"--but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible for me"--but I will not be mastered by anything. 13"Food for the stomach and the stomach for food"--but God will destroy them both. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.


The message used to convert should be that of John 3:16, a message of love. Of course people should be aware that they are sinners (Romans 3:23), this would probably require some mention of sin for some people, but not in judgement, just in informative and loving manner. They should know the reality of hell and God's final judgement, but it is not our place to judge, let them decide. They should know Romans 6:23. Then they should know the truth to be set free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:1-2). God loves, he accepts us as we are, and he has already taken the punishment for our sins, our job as christians is to make people aware of the Goodness of God, his willingness to save even the most hardened sinner. The only good is God, so we should not act as if we are any better.

Ahhhhh another incarnation of (Rev.) Fred Phelps, the guy who pickets gay funerals with signs that say "God Hates Fags."

Like we really need more of these guys. I hope they get struck down for their blatant sin -- pride.  Yeah sure
