I've heard it said that open-air preaching is futile and useless. The actual phrase that was used by the brethren was that street preaching was just "pissing up a rope" (you can find a nice, lovely, thoughtful definition of that Christian phrase in the Urban Dictionary or in the Wiktionary).

Noah, "a preacher of righteousness" (2Pet 2.5), was given 120 years to preach to lost people, warn them of coming judgment and wrath, and call them to the gracious salvation provided by God.

But he won no convert.

Gee... What a tool (also defined in the Urban Dictionary). I guess he was just pissing up a rope.

For apostasy there is no remedy but judgment.

2Timothy 4.3-4For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

With regard to open-air preaching, street ministry, and intentional evangelism... Since that is the clear, biblical model of the main thrust of the Great Commission...

I think that's a fine rope to piss up.
