71 year old Christian Pastor Arrested For Saying Marriage is Between a Man and a Woman

245 5

A Christian pastor in the UK was arrested by police after a member of the public reported him for the “homophobic” comment of saying that marriage was between a man and a woman.

Yes, really.

The incident occurred outside Uxbridge Station in west London. The video clip shows the elderly pastor being confronted by police and forcefully handcuffed before being led away.

“I wasn’t making any homophobic comments, I was just defining marriage as a relationship between a man and a woman. I was only saying what the Bible says – I wasn’t wanting to hurt anyone or cause offence,” said John Sherwood, who has been a pastor for 35 years.

Sherwood was arrested under the Public Order Act, for using “abusive or insulting words” that cause “harm” to another person after a member of the public flagged down officers snitched on him.

Although the pastor was released without charge after spending a night in jail he is still under investigation by the Crown Prosecution Service and could be charged at a later date.

    That is UNBELIEVABLE!!! We can see the persecution of Christians in America beginning as well. According to Bible prophecy persecution of Christians worldwide will continue to ramp up in these end times. We know that from reading the Bible. It is just a bit surprising to see this sign happening in our generation. We are moving ever closer to the return of Jesus when He will evacuate His Bride, pour out His wrath upon the wicked after a time called the Great Tribulation . . . and finally He will refurbish the heavens and earth after that outpouring of wrath, and bring us back with Him to rule and reign on the earth for a period of 1000 years referred to in the Bible as the Millennium. These are perilous times . . . but exciting times for those that have a personal relationship with Jesus!
