Evangelism at Maritzburg College vs. KES

DSCF2371On Saturday May 18, 2013, Maritzburg College hosted a “Breast Cancer” awareness day (pink socks worn by the players) during their Premier Interschool rugby encounter with King Edward VII School (KES) from Johannesburg.

Lungisa and I found ourselves being lead of the Holy Spirit and attending at this event to hand out Gospel tracts, booklets and to engage school boys and girls in witnessing encounters with the Holiness of Almighty God through the Law and Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Cross carrying at CollegeWhilst we were able to enter the grounds unhindered past security carrying the “ARE YOU READY” Cross, and we were also able to share the Good News with a host of scholars near the “Tuck-shop” and on the grass banks, we however were confronted by the College Estate Manager named Mr Ken Hackland that said “I must ask you to refrain from doing this!” This incidentally was after the featured televised match between the 1st XV’s had commenced and we were standing around speaking to another brother-in-Christ named Roger. Mr Hackland advised me that there were complaints to him and that people – including some of “other faiths” – were offended by what we were doing. However, we never received any objections whilst we walked around sharing Christ and giving out literature. From the attached video clip, one can pick up part of the conversation due to the “competition” of the rugby match taking place and the vociferous support from the College scholars.

Also, at one point Mr Hackland states that “he is a believer and that he has two Bibles in his office.” If this is the case why was he prepared to prevaricate when it came to “others” sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ! In fact, if he does believe upon the One true God Jesus Christ, as also College professes to do with their “Christian-ethos” and the ministry CFC (College For Christ), then why do they not STAND FOR CHRIST? It doesn’t matter what religious men think or whether they are offended by a man carrying a Cross, or not! It comes down to the following TRUTH:

1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

John 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

Later, Christ Jesus was preached from off their premises to those who had ears to hear!

As it says in the Holy Scriptures:

2 Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2 Timothy 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

2 Timothy 3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

2 Timothy 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

2 Timothy 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
