Christian influencer goes viral for preaching at the gym

by Kelly Valencia

A Christian influencer in the US has gone viral for preaching at the gym.

In a video, now seen by almost four million people, Ryan Foley can been seen delivering a passionate sermon at the gym while others are exercising.

As puzzled gym-goers looked on, Foley asked: "Will you all deny Christ on this day? Are you under the father of deception which flies in this city or under the father of God?

"On the day of judgment will you inherit the kingdom of heaven? Or are you living in sin? Sin will drag you to hell.

"Repent for the kingdom of heaven is near."

The video sparked a debate on social media with some supporting Foley’s bravery and courage to preach the Gospel in the public sphere whilst others accused him of “proselytizing”.

Responding to one of the comments, Foley said: “My mission is not to win over sceptics. My mission is to bring the lost sheep and a stray sheep and Christians who have fallen away into sin. Everyone knows who Jesus is. What will you do with that information? You must know the truth”.

On his Instagram and TikTok accounts, Foley also has other videos of him preaching in shopping centres, supermarkets and public spaces in the city.
