Mark Cahill – Pride Goes Before Destruction!

September 30, 2008

I am embedding a video of Mark Cahill at the Atlanta Gay Pride Festival.

Warning…this video may be very triggering. It may step on your toes. It may convict you. There is a lost world out there that will never come through the doors of the church to hear a message of truth in love about their situation with God.

And why should they? Why would they go to a place where so many point their fingers at them and spit out hateful messages? Why would they go to a place that is frequented by people who shout at them and call them vile things? I sure as heck wouldn’t go…nor would I listen!

We are called to be salt and light. We are called to go and reach out to the very people who need God the most. We are called to love them…and to share God’s love and mercy with them. Are we doing that? Are we following the Great Commission? Or are we waiting for the lost to come to us? That is very unlikely to happen. We must go to them…any way that we can.

The first 13 and half minutes of the video give you an idea of what kinds of things you will see at the parade. The rest of the almost three hour video shows how Mark reaches out to the people there. He has a friend of his video tape several conversations.

I love how he lovingly tries to find a common ground with these people. They have real discussions and some of these people open their hearts up to him, enabling him to plant the seeds of the Gospel. They know that he truly cares about them.

It is heartrending to hear of the deep struggles that some of these people go through. One young man had an understanding of scripture and the gospel that was better than a lot of Christians, yet he was also deceived in some areas. I could see Mark praying about what to say to this young man to try and help him.

At the end of the discussions, Mark gives a little bit of a wrap up and shares how it ended. He shares where he has been able to give a book or a DVD that might help the person better understand their need for Yeshua/Jesus. He also shares some of the other people’s comments about the discussion. Many of them were very grateful that he took the time to talk WITH them instead of AT them. They were grateful that he expressed an interest in them and a willingness to dialog and find out more about them. He did not write them off because of their appearance or lifestyle. Instead, he reached out with a love that they could see was real.

Here is the video:

Pride Goes Before Destruction

I have so much to learn about loving others. People like Mark Cahill and Paul Washer and others help me a lot.

    Hello, brothers. My name is Andre and I am Peruvian and live in New Jersey. I want to encourage you to preach the Word with boldness.

    And I also want to know if someone want to help me with the distribution of “One thing you can’t do in Heaven” in Latin America.

    I am giving away these book through two websites; and

    They are for free to any one who request it online. If someone wants to help with the distribution we can talk with Mark Cahill about this issue.
