David Barker and Stephen Wan were questioned by the police under caution, after preaching the gospel on the High Street in Camberley, Surrey on 9 December 2017.

As they were preaching, a number of hecklers gathered and made trouble for the preachers. It was alleged that the preachers said “homosexuals are going to hell” and “man cannot lie with man”. The preachers did not say these things.

David spoke first about the good news and Christmas, he then explained that all people have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God and quoted John 3:16. He then challenged a self-professed atheist, and suggested that atheism was a ‘temporary condition’.

Stephen then continued to explain the true meaning of Christmas and that Jesus was called ‘Jesus’ because he would save his people from their sins. He explained that that Jesus is the saviour because he came into the world to atone for the sins of all mankind. The previous heckler then returned, swearing and accusing him of preaching hate.

The heckler then asked about homosexuality, so Stephen explained the Genesis creation story and that marriage is an institution ordained by God for the purpose of procreation. Again, the heckler demanded to know what Stephen thought of homosexuality. Stephen then referred the heckler to the Bible. The police were then called.
