Evangelist pastor John Pennington, wearing a jacket emblazoned with the words: 'You need Jesus Christ', argues with a soccer fan. His placard reads: 'Be sure your sin will find you out'. Some Christians believe that it is a sin to hold football matches on Sunday and for shops to trade on that day, which they believe should be kept 'holy'.
