"What's important to me is telling other people about the Lord Jesus Christ. That's why I'm down here in Columbus, Ohio : to try to lead people to the Lord and hopefully they get saved and repent. That's what needs to be done."

Stevenson is from Grove City but currently lives on the South Side on Gilbert Street.

"Jesus Christ said himself 'I'm the way, the truth, and the life, and no man comes to the father, except thru me.' So it's only thru Jesus Christ that we can have a relationship w/ God-- and not thru Allah, and not thru Buddha, and not thru anybody else, but only Jesus Christ. And that's what I'm down here to do : point people to Jesus."

Stevenson said he's part of the Pleasant View Baptist Church, which he said is involved w/ feeding people and otherwise helping people in need.

"If you have heavy burdens and if you're depressed and you feel like you're going to kill yourself or you're going thru something in your life, I want to let you know that Jesus loves you."

Stevenson said the work he does is based on love, not hate. But he said he's not willing to work w/ Muslims or Hindus, even on common goals such as feeding the hungry.

"I do support the Jewish people. I support the nation of Israel...but as far as working w/ Muslims, Buddhists and all that: absolutely not. The reason why is they do not follow the truth of the Lord Jesus Christ."

What I didn't think of asking Stevenson is this: do Jewish people believe in Jesus Christ as our savior more than Muslims, Hindus, or Buddhists believe in that ?
