London: Police Arrest Christian For Reading From The Bible In Public ✝🇬🇧
In the video a Christian pastor is forcefully arrested by police after he publicly recited a basic message found in the Christian Bible (God only recognizes marriages between men and women etc) 📜
The incident took place in west London, UK, as John Sherwood, a 71 year old grandfather and Christian pastor, was standing on a step ladder in the Uxbridge section of the city. While in custody Mr. Sherwood was aggressively questioned by police about his views on homosexuality, with the officers going so far as to ask what he would do if his own children were gay.
Mr. Sherwood was held overnight at a local police station and though he wasn't prosecuted, a detailed file was passed on to the Crown Prosecution Service for review.
Sherwood's supporters posted a statement online noting: "Whilst he was preaching, he expounded the final verses of Genesis 1, declaring that God's purpose in creating mankind was to set human beings in families, headed by a father and a mother, not by two fathers, or by two mothers.
Statement From Peter Simpson, a pastor at Penn Free Methodist Church in Buckinghamshire preaching with Mr. Sherwood prior to his arrest:
"The distinction within mankind of just two genders, male and female, made in the image of God, constitutes the essence of God's created order.
Everything Sherwood said was Bible based. He was not saying anything abusive; he is a Christian minister. There did not seem to be any recognition from the police that Christian ministers and such views exist.
If there were Gay Pride Parade in Uxbridge, the police would support it even if Christians were offended. You don't have to be an evangelical Christian to be shocked by this. Anyone who cares about liberty should be concerned about what happened in Uxbridge.
This is about defending our Christian civilization, or what is left of it. The belief in Genesis 1:27 is fundamental to Christian belief.
This arrest of a faithful minister for doing nothing other than declaring what the Bible teaches about one of the important moral issues of our time reveals a dangerous assault upon freedom of speech and, not least, upon the freedom of Christian pastors to declare in public all that the Bible teaches. The state has no right to designate that some parts of God's word are no-go areas.
Whatever one's personal views on homosexuality might be, it is surely pertinent to ask what kind of nation have we become that the minister of a Christian church is arrested for upholding in the public square the very truths which Her Majesty the Queen promised to uphold in her Coronation Oath in 1953, with a Bible in her hand?" 📖
