Last year, I was in Scotland on mission with Jeremiah Cry Ministries to preach the gospel in Glasgow, Edinburgh, and other cities around the country. It was my experience that the freedoms we currently enjoy in America are scarce elsewhere. Scotland, part of the United Kingdom, is a country facing the judgment of God right now with rampant atheism, liberalism, sexual immorality, and an anti-Christian sentiment that rivals Islamic countries.
It is quite typical in the United Kingdom to face persecution from police while open-air preaching. The general population has literal tolerance for the truth of God. In this video below, you can see two police officers approach a man who is brave enough to stand at the gates of a lost city to proclaim Christ demanding that he stop and go away, or be arrested.
Take a look.
