Dayton, Ohio… the epitome of communist Romania

 

If you could show us that you are the true church of Christ, we would pass immediately to your side because we wish to be with Christ. But you did not come with arguments for the truth. You put us in jail. You can take our lives but not our faith.

Ohio students get arrested for evangelism-

Charlie Butts – OneNewsNow – 5/22/2009 1:00:00 PM

A group of young Christian evangelists ran into trouble with the law while trying to evangelize on an Ohio campus.

Five of seven members were arrested on the campus of Sinclair Community College in Dayton after being told to leave. All of it took place on public property. The group of Christians was approached by police who allegedly denied their constitutional right to freedom of speech.

Officer: “You’re all going to jail. Come on, it’s private property. You want to go to jail, too? This is not First Amendment; you’re on private property and you need to go.”
Student: “We have a right to be here”.
Officer: “You want to go to jail, too?”
Student: “We have a right to be here.”

One member of the group, Dan Poillon, remains jailed pending arraignment. Much of the action was caught on video by another member, but police seized the camera and still have it. Student Jason Storms describes the scene.
“When they tackled Dan and threw him to the ground, she got her camera out and began to film, so we have film of Dan on the ground getting roughed up by the cops,” he notes. “And then an officer came over to her and asked for the camera and she said ‘No, I’m not going to give you the camera.’ And so she was placed in handcuffs, and her camera was confiscated.”
Storms adds they were handing out Christian literature and witnessing peacefully and says there was no justification for violating their constitutional rights. The Alliance Defense Fund is representing the students. Article posted in its entirety

I wanted to post the article from One News Now in its entirety so that  believers that are living in America might see through the eyes of the Spirit the path that has been laid before us.

Who would have ever thought that the events that transpired in Dayton, Ohio on May 21, 2009 would be liken to the days of communist Romania? Speaks volumes of where America is today in terms of our  governments agenda.

Young adults arrested while sharing the Biblical message of sexual purity and morality. We are living in a day when our society cannot discern the difference in criminal activities and words of wisdom…

Crime Soared After Prayer Ban.                                      Mobile Press Register 22-May-09 

In 1962, five Supreme Court justices banned the following prayer in the public schools, probably to accommodate one atheist: “Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence upon thee, and we beg thou blessing upon us, our parents, our teachers and our country.”

In 1963, the five justices on the Supreme Court banned Bible reading in the government’s public schools, perhaps to accommodate an atheist.

In 1980, the same five justices on the Supreme Court ordered the removal of the Ten Commandments from view of the students, lest they be influenced by “the 10 laws.”

Statistics from government sources show that crime increased 544 percent from 1962 to 1985. From 1962 to 2000, teen suicides were up 450 percent; child abuse up 2,300 percent; drug use by teens up 6,000 percent; arrests of teens up 150 percent; pregnancy by single teenagers, ages 15 to 19, up 500 percent; and divorces up 350 percent.

It was a dangerous thing to kick, as it were, God out of the classrooms — the government educational system. Now contrast crime before God was excluded from the classrooms, and now.

The U.S. Supreme Court could be the means of turning this nation around by requiring that the Ten Commandments be posted on the classroom walls, and a reading from the Sermon on the Mount be presented at the beginning of each day.

But don’t hold your breath until such comes from the Supreme Court. There may be an atheist who would be offended.. al.com

Now you would think, if the above statistics are accurate, and rest assured they are, just pick up the daily news paper and see what is unfolding before our very eyes, you would think that law enforcement in Dayton, Ohio would have bigger crime to fight than someone sharing the gospel of Christ. Not sure how the rest of the WordPress readers feel but it seems pretty clear to me…

And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence. And when ye come into an house, salute it. And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you. And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. Matt.10:11-19

This is the advise that the Lord Jesus Christ gave His disciples when he sent them forth bearing precious seed. You do not have to be a Rhode Scholar to see that the Lord warned them that His gospel would be met by opposition and to expect rejection from the world. We in America are just now beginning to feel the force of the prophecy. Our brothers and sisters all over Asia have been immersed in this type of rejection for decades.

The only encouragement that we might find from our Lord’s exhortation is…..

And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

  1. Brother Malachi, I took a deep breath after reading this article. I am no longer shocked but still stunned every time I read of these atrocities that are happening to Christians in this nation who are simply and peacefully exercising their first amendment rights. It appears that the liberal agenda has inserted a codicil into the constitution that says these rights are now for everyone except Christians! No other belief system is targeted anywhere and to any degree as are believers of Jesus Christ! Are the times so dark that we fail to see our liberties are being taken and made into chains of bondage before our very eyes? Christ left us his Word when he left this world. Do we treasure the reading of our bibles or do they sit idly by on some table collecting dust? Soon the time will come when they will be confiscated and burned as the truth is deemed intolerant and hate-filled. As in persecuted countries, to possess a single page of Scripture will one day be a crime. And you can be sure that the ACLU won’t intercede!

    What do we do? We pray unceasingly. The Lord is looking for those who hold on to the truth till the end. I echo John’s fateful words at the end of Revelation and say, “Come, Lord Jesus!”

    • Yes Marianne, shocked is no longer the experience. I am thinking that based on where we are in God’s time table, this type of opposition is to be expected.

      Concerning the rights being for everyone except ‘Christians’? It is amazing the anti-Christ spirit that seems to be prevailing. We are living in a day liken to when God sent Isaiah to His people. Darkness is light, light is dark. Bitter is considered sweet and sweet bitter. There is a gross blinding of the eyes and the world knows nothing but to oppose God and His word. They can not get their hands on Him so the next avenue is to attack His children… those living and serving Him.

      I can not help but think of Micaiah (1 Kings 22) when King Ahab had shut him up in prison. The world is getting more vehement against God’s messengers with each day. Should not surprise us.. stay in His word. It shall be the only firm foundation with which we must stand upon.

      Peace Marianne and thanks for being a faithful reader, but better yet being faithful to the teaching of God’s word.

  2. […] DAYTON OHIO THE EPITOME OF COMMUNIST ROMANIA […]

    • Greetings Timbob. I not only wanted to thank you for linking ‘Dayton Ohio, the epitome of communist Romania’ on the Grace Country blog site, but for your continued stand upon the firm foundation of God’s word.

      We are living in a day in which our faith will most assuredly be tested and few, even in the church who name the name of Christ will be able to stand, and that due to a lack of God’s word being supplanted by too much of the flesh. Thank you for the encouragement that you and Grace Country have been to me.

      Pray we shall stand, and when we have not the strength or the courage to stand, He will strengthen us as we stand upon the firm foundatioin of His word.

      Peace my friend.

  3. John 15:18-19 The authorities of this world does love its own , if moral Christians are hated by this immoral world, then they deserve better than this world. Just like that gay-pageant-judge created a problem for Carrie Prejean, where she had none, so have other irrational-authorities, in GOVERNMENT, have created problems for moral Christian parents, where they have none. Gay and lesbian AUTHORITIES were the one’s who spear-headed the women’s liberation movement [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virginia_woolfe [ note the organization Bloomsburg and their history is riddled with corporate profit at the expense of quality human life and human self destruction http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloomsbury_Group ], and their influence of the elite in society did encourage authorities to shatter the traditional family, and destroy the man as head of house hold, and as the sole provider for his family. They diminished the man’s pay check and his earning capacity, so that both parents MUST neglect the child, and work for a paycheck, just to make financial ends meet. So, now that a man is no longer a provider and the head-of-house-hold and both parents must struggle against economic slavery that is designed to destroy the family, a gay man now deemed himself equal to the man who has had his prestige and recognition stripped away, by gay and lesbian authorities. Therefore, homosexuals only use their equal rights to obtain a higher platform to attack traditional Christian values, and bring us down to their level of DIS-SATISFACTION. Now, after diminishing and destroying heterosexual relationships, a gay man accuses heterosexuals of being bad parents, and claims that he can be a better parent. Here is REALITY, heterosexuals are in a life and death struggle against an immoral corruption campaign that is waged against them by homosexual authorities, in our own government, and most of us don’t even know it; YET, and this oppression does damage our ability to be better parents. What moral Christians need to do is to make heterosexual parents aware of this immoral homosexual crusade against them, so that together, we will repel this immoral corruption campaign made by gay and lesbian authorities. The destruction of man as head of household, and the recent attacks against modern, liberated women, by gay activists, is the reason behind Proposition -8, in California.
