Last week (October 24) in Mid-Town Manhattan, a 79-year-old man was beaten bloody for preaching the Gospel on a train, according to the NYPD. A woman hit him with a high heel, leaving him bloody and disoriented. She did not like the content of his speech.
When the woman heard the man’s preaching, with his Bible in tow, she took off her shoe and clocked him with it as an argument developed over the subject of sin and righteousness.
In the video, you can hear passengers say, “Please sit, in Jesus’ name, please sit.” Other passengers were encouraging the man to keep pressure on his wounds.
You can hear the man, seeing the blood he suffered for Christ, say, “Praise Jesus.”
The man then exited the train at 42 Street and 7th Avenue and received medical treatment by EMS. The suspect fled on foot.
It is unknown whether or not she had one or two shoes remaining.
And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil (John 3:19).
