Four Men Arrested Proclaiming The Gospel in Bristol, U.K.

Four Christian evangelists  were arrested in Bristol in the U.K. ←
They were reported to be singing hymns, rejoicing, & reading the Bible during the time they were in jail.  They were released to respond to inquiries in 10 days from that time.
I first read about it from my friend Tony on his Cross Encounters Ministries page, and then another friend shared, and so I was able to find other comments from people who were being informed of the situation (some closely connected).

It's sad that the country that had godly men like Spurgeon, J.C. Ryle, & George Whitefield now arrests men for preaching the Biblical Gospel & the people celebrate.
They claim that proclaiming soul saving truth is "antisocial."
These street preachers are not from Cross Encounters, though they are friends of Tony.  
One was from Cross Country Evangelism, and the others are connected to other ministries.

Here are biographies of two of the four men arrested:

Someone once said, " All sin can be forgiven if people come and confess & bow & repent before Christ as the crucified risen Savior & Lord," and it is true.

Jesus is God's Son, and unless one is born again they will not see the Kingdom of Heaven.  Hell & Heaven are real.  These men love England enough that they are willing to go to jail to tell them the truth that can set people free from sin & death.  People love the darkness rather than the light, but the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
Romans 1:16 NASB

What Is The Gospel that men were arrested for?

Here is Mike Stockwell from when he was in Jamaica this year:
