Judge Threatens Preacher with Arrest for Using Bible Verses Online

An online Christian preacher has been ordered by a Washington County judge in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, to stay silent on social media for five years after he expressed his moral and religious concerns in posts about a church that endorses same-sex marriage and a public drag queen performance in front of children.

A team of attorneys with The Rutherford Institute, a nonprofit civil liberties organization, has stepped in to help Rich Penkoski. They're asking the Oklahoma Supreme Court to overturn the five-year restraining order against him, denouncing it as excessive and a clear violation of the pastor's First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion.

Penkoski leads the Tennessee-based online ministry Warriors for Christ.

Given to Depravity: Organization Proposes Laws With 'Sick' Sexual Agenda

If you haven't heard of "The 8 March Principles" yet, you soon will. And, as end-times expert Michael Snyder says, most Christians—and really, anyone with a conscience—aren't going to like them.

"The 8 March Principles," Snyder says, "are essentially a blueprint for synchronizing all global laws regarding sexuality, gender and reproductive rights. On its website, UNAIDS, one of the organizations that helped draft this ungodly document, claims that many global laws that prohibit certain types of sexual behavior 'not only violate human rights, but the fundamental principles of criminal law themselves.'"

Snyder says, "Alarmingly, among the laws that are being targeted by the globalists are laws that ban adults from having sex with children."

March CM CoverThe light of Jesus is shining even brighter as the world without Him becomes increasingly dark in its sin.

Being a Christian automatically puts a target on one's back, and as Jesus says in the Word of God: "The thief does not come, except to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly" (John 10:10).

Christians are reeling from attacks that have decimated their communities leaving dozens murdered in the wake of recent terrorist attacks.
