Pastor To Be Sentenced for Preaching.

No, this is not Russia or Saudi Arabia or North Korea – this is a pastor about to be sentenced for holding a sign that said “Jesus Loves You” in protest at an Abortion Clinic.

 

Pro-life pastor prepares for sentencing

 

Watler HoyeAn Oakland, California, pastor could face jail time for expressing his pro-life views.

 

Pastor Walter Hoye ran into trouble with an abortion clinic while doing an informational picket. Dennis Howard, leader of The Movement for a Better America, believes Hoye is innocent.
 
“His approach was simply to carry a sign that said ‘Jesus Loves You. Can We Help?’ and offering those who wanted it some information about alternatives to abortion,” Howard explains.
 
A complaint was filed and Hoye was found guilty in spite of proof to the contrary. “There was a video taken of him doing this, and it shows that he was not harassing anybody,” Howard points out. “In fact, he was being harassed by escorts from the abortion clinic.”

Pastor Hoye faces up to two years in jail and a $4,000 fine. Howard is calling Christians into action. “We feel that pro-life organizations around the country ought to take up this man’s cause and pray and fast between now and February 19,” he concludes.
 
That is when Hoye is due to be sentenced.

    So what?

    Is the servant greater than the master?

    Did not the Lord say this would happen, that they would hate His followers as they hated Him?

    This pastor should be proud and ecstatic that he is graced to be following in his Master’s footsteps.

    And he shouldn’t expect anything less.

    So what?

    The ‘So what?” is that YOU are next.

    And the sad thing is – it did not have to happen on our watch were we faithful to God and our Foundations.

    Liberty was a gift of God. Excusing tyranny and the trampling of your Rights that God gifted you – is no less than spitting in the face of God with ingratitude and willfully selling yourself into slavery and death.

    The newly ellected government, along with the extreme left wing radical press shows that the majority of our nation has spiralled out of control downward toward a cesspool of immorality.

    “So what” depicts a fantasy mentality which has no idea what is coming for either himself (herself?) or any true Christian who will have the backbone to not stick their head in the sand as the nation crumbles.

    On the other side of the coin, the Churches in general are the main culprits in this horrifying mess, as we listen and enjoy solid teaching, only to go about our way and spend the majority of time loving the things of the world, seeking pleasure instead of the Word of God, which is our only Hope. What can we do? How do real Christians have a way to unite and be effective outside of private prayer? Please tell me, I am surrounded by the “just wait and see, God has it all under control” crowd. God Bless this fine Pastor.

    Well David,

    Employ Isaiah 58:1 in your daily walk. Make an effort to wake up or warn the lukewarm churches what their responsibility was and is for this huge mess we are in.

    The Founders intended that the church would influence the culture, not the other way around – as Adams’ quote about our Constitution being fit only for a religious and moral people attests.
