HIGH WYCOMBE WITNESS : Young passer-by, ‘I am not bothered that my sins are not forgiven’. Preacher, ‘You will be when Christ returns as Judge’

Pastor Peter Simpson was preaching the gospel in High Wycombe on May 6th, helped by 4 lady members of the congregation and Mr Chrisden de Souza from Wealdstone, near Harrow. 

One of the passers-by came up to Pastor Simpson and expressed his outrage at the arrest of Pastor Sherwood in Uxbridge two weeks previously. The minister told him that he was in fact present when the arrest took place. It seemed that the man was not a a Bible-believing Christian or churchgoer. Nevertheless, he was shocked by the Police’s actions. 

Some useful conversations were entered into by those helping the witness. At one stage Pastor Simpson called out to some passing schoolboys, ‘Are your sins forgiven?’ One said no and that he was not concerned by it either. However, the issue of sins forgiven is the most important  issue that anyone will ever consider, because it is matter of eternal life or eternal death, as all who stand before Christ on the Day of Judgement will suddenly find out (2 Corinthians 5:10).  

The preaching referred to how the nation had been in much fear over the past year, a fear directly related to the fact that so few know Him who by His earthly ministry showed that He has power over all disease, the risen Lord Jesus Christ who governs the affairs of the nations.

May many who heard the gospel in High Wycombe see the need to bow down before Christ for salvation and everlasting life, doing so without further delay.
