    First a hotel approached me and said not to bother people as they were on the streets. But I replied and said I could give out tracts to people on the streets and the law does not forbid it and they left me alone. I met plenty of people hungry for the gospel, met some that encouraged me and so forth. However the major showdown of the day came as I was walking on a street and a certain person had a sign up that said "smile if you want to xxxxx" and he was pretending to do the sexual act in front of children and women. I tried to reason with him, but he did not want to hear it and got proud. Then I gave him the LAW and this set him off and he told me not to judge him, or "judge not and ye shall not be judged" or something like that. I challenged him that he was doing a sinful act and he needed to stop. He got mad and pretended to be satan and tried to run me away. However I stood to his face and showed him no fear nor intimidation and he left me alone, but I walked away and got both security and the police and they came and took him to jail. The police thanked me for he had been wanted for two weeks and I was the only one whom contacted them as others just avoided him, and other Christians probably chose to pray for him, but not confront his sin which was wrong. The lawbreaker will be judged by the law and I will pray for this man to repent and change his ways in jail.

    Then sometime later I did some open air and this time attracted a crowd as I waved $10 to anyone that could name all 10 commandments without the aid of a phone or Bible and many tried but none passed. This gave me an audience to tell people they needed Christ and I presented the law to the proud and grace to the humble as there were a few humble there. Then a little later some pastor from the Baptist General Conference (I think a Wesleyan) approached me that what I was doing was wrong, and the best way to win souls was to have a relationship. I confirmed my Calvinism and that I did not believe I could win anyone to Christ, as only God granted faith and repentance to the elect but only expected me to be out witnessing. I said I was not against and did take people to lunch and talk with lost souls as I have done many times, however there is a place for open air preaching. We concluded in peace and agreed to disagree as I am not a open air preacher that preaches law all the time and does not preach grace for I believe very much in God's love and grace for the humble. Some of the audience went and talked about me as a christian female I met sometime later said they were harping on me (probably convicted by the Word of God).

    If you can pray for that man that went to jail and for his repentance.

    PS- I am confused as why an organization would present both the Purpose Driven Life and Living waters on the same page as they are polar opposite, just as Quantum, TND, and others are with me.

    Please drop the word whom from your vocabulary. You use it incorrectly 97.2% of the time.

    And hotels do not approach people. Management or employees can approach folks though.

    Interesting story.

    Who uses Whom When ? (my title for the article)

    Hope it helps the bro. On the other hand, most people, including myself, tend to use "who" most of the time even when the correct word to use is "whom".

    It is. it is.

    Yes I should have used the word "who". But never mind the grammar as people make grammar errors all the time on FB and in web articles and blogs, and sometimes even books. What did you think of the content of my post?
