How Do You Feel About Public Preaching?

What is your opinion about public preaching in Nigeria?. Sometimes the preacher disturbs the peace in a public transport irrespective of how frustrated the passengers look; sometimes it is in a school yard, market, sometimes they disturb the neighborhood early in the morning[morning crier] etc. Do you think the propagation of the gospel must be done that way or is it better the government ban public preaching so that any intending preacher can do it in the privacy of their church or at least approach people one on one?.

You should practice whatever it is you believe in without becoming a nuisance to others. This is the basis of fundamental human rights. Public preaching of any type should be banned. However, they can do one on one, distribute tracts or other means that do not disturb the peace of those who do not and may not change. What is right or correct depends on the PERCEPTION/BELIEF of each person.

There are several things that are of disturbance, The records store where music is blasted, The siren of police vehicles and politians, Why is it the preaching that gives life you want to ban. This is how it started in uk and america. And that what is leading them to the doom.

when you hear a preacher man preaching, if you are a christian, pray that lives will be youched by that message and get challenged to do thesame. Do you know how many came to know the lord through public preaching?

Remember this is a call for every christian.

Mr 16:15

And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature

So how will this great commision be fulfilled. You have to take the gosple to where the sinners are. Publickly or privately

Ac 20:20

And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publickly, and from house to house,

If the preaching is disturbing others by obstructing the sleeping or preventing them from communicating with each other for example, then they should not be able to preach in that manner. However, if they changed the manner such as whispering I guess then I would not care then either.

So even if their preaching is disturbing others, it is okay as long as they are in a private property?

They can preach in public(i.e among other people) as long as it on private property they or someone who invited them owns, they are not using government funds/resources, and is not causing physical harm to anyone else. If they meet these requirements then they can tap dance over kola nuts and palm leaves, and scream how they are the most powerful dark wizard of all time for all I care.

Don't you feel the preachers disturb the peace of people sleeping in the morning?

Must we just discuss for the sake of it, or vote for no reason at all? Isn't this of the devil and an antichrist opposite of the great commission? God/the church is still looking for more labourers and here is someone hinting that the few should be banned. Even so come Lord Jesus.

Public nuisances. Ban them. The last person most people want is somebody accosting them on the street to impose their own beliefs on them.
