I started preaching with my banner and drew an audience of 8 to 10 with whom I had a good discussion for about 20 minutes until it broke up. One girl had just two weeks ago been baptized by one of the campus ministries, gave a bold testimony. Hopefully, this will be the start of her being a strong student witness. A Catholic boy also stood up for the Lord.
On the other hand, a brazen woman boasted that she was an adulteress, lesbian, drunkard and a gossip. She had no shame whatsoever. It is remarkable how harden a person can quickly become in their sins. There was nothing attractive about this woman whatsoever neither physically or spiritually.
Later one of the outwardly prettiest lesbians that I recall meeting introduced herself to me as I was waiting for the next break. She merely wanted to take a selfie with my banner behind her. Obviously, she had no shame over her sin either.
About 1:30 a long-time preacher friend, who is a chemist, drove down from Wisconsin with his family. He had a 5 ½ hour drive having to go through Chicago. He preached between the break when there were few students. His message was, “What do you love, darkness or light?”
A Jewish boy with whom I have had several confrontations confronted the preacher. The Jewish boy did not even believe in the Torah. His religion appeared to be “standing up for what is right.” Clearly, he had no universal standard to which he could appeal for determining right from wrong. He could not see anything wrong with sodomy.
At the break, the preacher’s wife, Mary, spoke mostly giving her testimony. Her mother had been a radical feminist and her father a Marxist. Mary went to the University of Wisconsin and soon realized the hypocrisy of the feminists and fell into the drunken party life. However, during her undergraduate years, she found the Lord. She was influenced by the ministry of my long-time friend, Leonard Allen. Mary gathered several students around her.
For a time, the three of us each had people around us. There was a group of five, apparently 12 to 13- year old boys, gathered, who hung around for a while. They had lots of questions. They were not very respectful but I have encountered a lot worse.
I left campus at 3:30 while Mary was having intense dialogue with a young. There were many parents/high school tour groups, which passed by throughout the afternoon,
