A Form of Evangelism I Could Get Behind

The words “campus preacher” probably conjure up images of homophobic men who scream about hellfire at everyone as they walk by, but Ivan Imes (a.k.a. Jesus Talk), as he’s known to students, takes a very different approach at Louisiana State University:

Jesus Talk (Patrick Dennis – The Advocate)

He sits stoically at the end of the alley on a cushioned, fold-up, metal chair and speaks only when spoken to.

His chair faces a matching seat with a laminated paper bearing the words, “Prayer requests questions?? Email: jtalk@cox.net”.

“The key is, I never approach anybody,” Imes said. “They have to approach me.”

He may hold many of the same views as the loudmouths who usually come onto campus, but he knows this is a far better way to win people over to his way of thinking.

The American Jesus also points out another advantage:

… I appreciate this guy demonstrating that not all Christians who want to share their faith are completely bonkers.

He’s wrong, but he’s not crazy. And he seems open to debate.

More of this, please.
