I have been doing open air preaching for awhile now and have run into all sorts of opposition to the gospel. Hecklers, Drunk women exposing themselves or touching us, possible demon possessed people, angry business owners, security, and the police are just a few of the things that attempt to prevent the proclamation of the gospel. But now I have a new foe, the iPhone!!!!
This Saturday night while I was preaching an angry officer walked up to me with iphone in hand telling me to turn my P.A. down. When I objected he showed me the screen of his phone which which revealed his new Decibel Meter software. Now I respect all law enforcement but I have been preaching on that corner every weekend for over a year and have never been told to turn down my P.A.. I objected again saying, "thats just an iPhone that cannot be accurate!" He then claimed to have tested it with the stations real DB meter and it came two DB under and I was 20db over the limit. I requested that he bring out the official one and he said that if he did he would cite me.
It is interesting what electronics have done to our world. Whats seems to help us in a lot of ways limits us. Our nation is becoming more ignorant, kids are glued to T.V. sets and game consoles, a lot of jobs have been handed over to computers, the Internet is filled with porn and has nearly ruined music and movie industry with all the piracy and now the iPhone is shutting down the proclamation of the gospel! when will it end!
