Several times in my life I have had the privilege of traveling to the foreign field to preach. In fact, a few weeks ago I had the privilege of traveling to Mexico City to preach for Missionary Kevin Wynne. His work is an amazing work. I was with him for a Thursday evening service, and there were a few thousand people in attendance. That night there were over thirty people who accepted Christ as Saviour and followed Him in believer’s baptism. The next day I asked Bro. Wynne how many people are in the Mexico City area. He told me there were over 30 million people in the city. I asked him how many independent Baptist churches were in the city. He told me he only knew of 7 or 8 independent Baptist churches in the whole city (That was all that he knew about). It was not hard to get a burden for that city.

"Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake. Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets."—Luke 6:22,23.
Thank God for my preacher friends! I dare not touch God’s anointed, but I do not hesitate to say that the dirtiest gang of thieves this side of Hell are the Gospel-denying, compromising liberals and modernists who deny the verbal inspiration of the Scriptures and preach to please people instead of preaching the Word as it is laid down in the Bible.

There is the wife who loves him, the children who call him their dad, and the parents who raised him in a loving Christian home. There are others, also, such as grandchildren, brothers, sisters, in-laws, friends. All of these people are affected by the terrible sin he committed. They are victims, too. Their lives have been drastically altered as well. They feel the pain of what he has done and they must deal with the embarrassment, the shame and even the guilt that arise from his despicable actions.
