Truck driver Harold Scott, 72, spent the last 43 years driving a truck and the last few years sharing the gospel.
According to the Christian Post, Scott believes it’s his calling to “get the word of God out.” To date, Scott has spent $600,000 renting billboards with messages like, “Life is nothing without God,” “Calvary’s Miracle: God hates sins, but He loves sinners” and “Jesus Christ died for the sins of the world.”
Scott rented billboards in high-traffic areas, including one at the entrance to Lambeau Field in Green Bay. He estimates that 75,000 football fans see the sign during a regular football season.
“I’m trying to reach the masses of people who are lost in this world and try to get them back to God before it’s too late, because this world is not going to be here forever,” Scott told the Christian Post. “I’ve experienced some controversy. A lot of people say, ‘You’re crazy. Why are you spending your money this way?’ I tell them, ‘You don’t understand; God and Jesus Christ, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, they brought you into this world and they’re going to take you out.'”
On average, Scott spends $20,000 per billboard. He has rented billboards throughout the country.
Scott told the Christian Post that what inspired him to spend his hard earned money was that in all his years on the road, he had yet to see a billboard that teaches the Gospel.
“I haven’t been a religious man all of my life. But I’ve come to know the Bible. I’ve come to understand it. I know what it’s all about, and I know about how Jesus Christ died for our sins. The most important thing is the cross, and to get down before the cross and repent of your sins,” Scott said.
Scott told the Christian Post that he sees himself as a modern-day John the Baptist, and that he doesn’t want any glory for what he has done. He wants all the glory to go to God.
