Taylor Objections to Street Preaching Considered

Objections to Street Preaching Considered

By William Taylor

William Taylor was a Methodist in the California Conference in the mid-1800’s. Although published in 1867, this article speaks to our generation. Mr. Taylor spoke about cultural refinement, secular education, the negative effects of immigration, the apathy of the churches, and other topics that apply today. The book from which this chapter is taken is called, “Seven Years’ Street Preaching in San Francisco, California.”

Objections to Street Preaching Considered

Summary: In this 8 chapter work (very short chapters, so this is almost a tract)by Taylor (Methodist), he examines objections to street preaching. He looks at 8 objections: a degradation of ministerial dignity, it debases (makes common) the gospel, it detracts from regular ministrations, it creates riots and confusion, it brings confrontation with civil authorities, it is impossible to preach both in the church and in the street, and it will damage the preachers voice (bronchitis and crack his voice).

David Cox Evaluation

Yes, it is kind of a distasteful activity. But this comes from a group that is not all that evangelistic. It was even more distasteful than God incarnated and came to earth and died the death of the cross for our salvation. So, even distasteful, we should joyfully do it and support it however we can. We should promote street preaching. Those who do it have a great reward waiting for them.
