Mind-Boggling Arrest of Christian at Abortion Clinic
Barbwire ^ | 27 February 2018 | Benham Brothers

“To you, Lord, I call; you are my Rock, do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you remain silent, I will be like those who go down to the pit. Hear my cry for mercy as I call to you for help, as I lift up my hands toward your Most Holy Place. Do not drag me away with the wicked, with those who do evil, who speak cordially with their neighbors but harbor malice in their hearts” – Psalm 28:1-3.

On Saturday, we got a text from our sister that our dad had been arrested while ministering at an abortion clinic. She had no idea why, nor did he.

It turned out someone had taken out a warrant for his arrest – without obtaining a police report or any verification of the claim whatsoever. He was released the same day and sent us the below email after he got home.

We’re living in some crazy times.

Dear boys,

I was reading Psalm 28 today, and it became apparent to me what is happening in the streets of our nation. Strange new city ordinances and seemingly little changes in laws are beginning to squeeze out every last breath of liberty we Christians have to be a voice for Him and His precious preborn children. The systematic criminalization of Christianity is not coming to us merely by Supreme Court cases or cleverly crafted pieces of congressional legislation. It is coming to us by seemingly small nuances, changes and alterations of the ordinances and laws in our cities, townships, counties and states.

The strangulation of our First Amendment rights and responsibilities as Christians in America is burgeoning from the bottom up – not from the top down. One would never know this, however, if he were only paying attention to mainstream media, Fox News, conservative radio, et.al.

My recent arrest is a great example. I wrote this in my Bible this morning, February 25, 2018: “I was taken to jail yesterday at an abortion mill (a preferred women’s health clinic) because a foul-mouthed, pro-abortion woman had sworn out a warrant for my arrest, saying I approached her in a threatening manner. She claimed I said, ‘You are dead,’ and that I said it repeatedly so that she, or any ‘reasonable person,’ would fear for his life.’

This supposed “confrontation” took place one week ago, on Saturday, February 17, 2018. That morning, there were between 15-20 uniformed policemen on duty because we had about 250 Christian moms and dads, grandmas and grandpas, and boys and girls praying and singing across the street from that abortion clinic. It was a loving example of God’s goodness to give these mommas a choice.

This pro-abortion woman then got on her bullhorn and began shouting vulgarities and epithets at the Christian families across the street. It was at this time that I walked across the driveway, while remaining on the sidewalk, and spoke with her. I asked her to please stop berating these families and saying four-letter words in the presence of children.

I then told her that she was “dead in her trespasses … dead in her sins … and was a dead person walking because from out of the abundance of her heart her mouth spoke such death.” I said “she was filled with prickles and stings in her heart and needed Jesus.”

Yet she continued her harangue.

Interestingly, she communicated not one word of this supposed “threat” to any of the uniformed policemen that day. I wonder why? Because there was no visible, audible or perceivable threat made to her or anyone else. As a matter of fact, there was no threat at all – just an invitation to ask Jesus into her heart so that He could make it brand new.

She waited until she could go to a magistrate, without a police report, and get the magistrate to swear out a warrant for my arrest. Mind you, without a police report, she was allowed to swear out a warrant for my arrest. When the policemen came to arrest me, they were all apologetic and said they had no idea someone could obtain a warrant for my arrest without a police report. It broke all protocol.

My court date is April 17, 2018.

If these things continue unchecked, it won’t be long before warrants will be issued against anyone who stands against the radical left’s agenda. Though they may speak “cordially with their neighbor,” they can’t hide the “malice in their hearts.”

It’s time to pray – and be a voice.

No doubt many local judges salivate over the prospect of such a claimant coming before them to accuse a Christian.

Leftists have long since forsaken the legislature and have gone after the presumably unaccountable, unassailable judiciary as their totalitarian tool of choice.

The preacher was not threatening her, per se, just the spirit which inhabited her. The preacher was a direct threat to that spirit.

Abortion mills are spiritual warfare ground zero.
Been at this many years - nothing surprises me.

"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm"
Ephesians 6:12

Yes, I’ve seen the violence these demon-possessed worshipers of Moloch demonstrate. From trying to run down pro-lifers when their cars, to ripping signs from their hands, to throwing projectiles at them from passing cars. They are barbarians to the core.

The gentleman is absolutely correct about the defeat of liberty is not just at the federal level, but taking place at local levels eroding the very foundation of this nation. Democrats at every level must be removed from power. But, it may already be too late.

Democrats have seized absolute control of the media, schools, and the soft "sciences" to pronounce their religious dogma as "sound." Unless any of these can be regain, we don't have much hope. Multitudes of youth are born into this brainwashing environment.

The Benham’s are based in North Carolina, in the Charlotte area. I’ll bet their dad is similarly located.

Obama Attorney General Eric Holder told all the state AG's that they only needed to uphold the laws they felt like upholding. That is the epitome of lawlessness, which I guess means that they can also make up laws when they feel like it.

I reckon somebody still has that Holder admonition still kicking around their measly brains.

I also figured it was down south. I live in MD. My wife prays at a abortion facility once a week during the 40 days for life events. Turnout is very weak. There’s even a church that shares the parking lot with the abortion mill. The pastor refuses to even contemplate telling his members about it because he “doesn’t do politics.” What an absolute sissy

I figured this was likely St Louis, where the prosecutor hires mercenary investigators so she doesn’t have to use police to investigate anything.

She obviously has no concept or is confused about the mortal man and spiritual man. If she did, she would understand the difference. In the meantime she dwells in spiritual darkness, dead in sin, and in ignorance of the two.

Stating a physical law of our universe, for every action there is a reaction. The mortal woman reacted to a spiritual rebuke by feeling her mortal life had been threatened. She reacted this way because she has no spiritual side to stand on.

If I had the time to explain what is going on in our world this incident would be a prime example of what Christians are facing today. So put on your armor and grab your sword, and get ready to rumble. Display some angry righteousness against the devil and his daemons. The world will react by prosecuting you for your beliefs. This you must overcome and endure until HE returns.

The bible encourages us to be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can make your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this world’s darkness, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms...

I’m only expressing my biased opinion (as a sinner who has hope in his Savior) about this incident. I’m not going to argue doctrine with anyone, in fact I’m not even going to reply.

If anyone has any questions, then seek ye one who teaches true doctrine. I would recommend starting with Jesus and trying to understand where HE stands on any issues you may have.

What's wrong with someone swearing out an arrest warrant? Not much different than a citizen's arrest or any kind of he-said she-said type of confrontation. That said, whosoever is swearing out the arrest warrant should be responsible if the warrantee is found not guilty, or the warrant is found to have no cause. That should be an automatic (no trial) jail sentence.
