Tony Miano Arrested For Preaching Against Sin In England

Here is a link to an article of brother Tony Miano being arrested in England for preaching against sin.  I watched the post-arrest video from Tony concerning this event.  Tony and his team were preaching the gospel and passing out tracts at the Wimbledon Tennis Tournament in England.  Tony chose to preach from 1 Thessalonians 4:3-7 and was preaching against all sexual immorality including homosexuality.  A woman heard Tony preaching against homosexuality, cursed at him as she walked by, and then called the police to complain about his sermon.  The police arrived and arrested Tony for his “hate speech” against homosexuals.

Tony was then taken to a police station where he was questioned about his faith in Christ.  The British asked him where in the Bible he was preaching, did he hate homosexuals, would he help a homosexual if they asked him for food, and would he continue to preach against homosexuality if they let him go.  He answered appropriately but on the last question, he told them he would continue to preach against homosexuality since it was condemned in Scripture.  At this point the British told him he would not be released but would have to stand trial for his crimes against homosexuals.

This is coming to the United States.  It will be a crime to preach against the sin of homosexuality in this nation in due time.  My prediction is less than 10 years.  However, the Church of Christ must preach against all sins.  We must not pick and choose what sins to preach against but must declare what God’s Word says about all sin (1 John 3:4).  The Bible condemns not just homosexuality (1 Corinthians 6:9-10) but also lying, greed, idolatry, adultery, racism, etc.  May we be faithful to preach against all sin that robs God of His glory and sends people to hell (Romans 6:23).
