Christian influencer causes massive scene at gym trying to preach his religion

Some people just wanted to get on with their session

A Christian influencer who spends his days preaching his religion at the gym caused quite a scene.

Ryan Foley, who has a respectable 182,700 followers on TikTok and 7,866 on Instagram has gone viral for a number of escapades, which include performing unexpected sermons in places such as a cafeteria, a shop and even a Subway.

But Foley’s latest video landed him in a spot of bother after it was shared on Twitter by an account named Fifty Shades of Whey.

In the video, which has been viewed over 3.3m times, the influencer can be seen stood in the middle of the busy gym.

As confused gym-goers looked on, Foley asked: “Will you all deny christ on this day? You under the father of deception flies in the sea or under the father of God.

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

“Repent from the kingdom of heaven you steal.”

One man can be heard asking for security, but that doesn’t stop Foley, who continues to preach.

“Turn to God today,” he added. “You laugh, you mock, but God said in the last days many will laugh and mock. They don’t want to hear the word of God.”

Foley then called for anyone who wants to ‘stand for Jesus’ to let themselves be known and promised that he would ‘have their back on judgement day’ if they did.

Although it was a valiant effort, nobody seemed that interested as they continued to lift weights and run on the treadmill.

His parting message to his perplexed audience wasn’t as kind-hearted as the others, instead choosing to call them all “cowards”, something many disagreed with.

“Nothing at all wrong with being Christian… this isn’t being a Christian. Him quietly helping a person at the gym is what Christ wants, not proselytizing,” one user wrote.

Another said: “He isn’t preaching for belief. He’s preaching for views. If it was for belief, he wouldn’t have the camera all set up and ready to catch himself and peoples reactions to him.”
