Report by John S. Torell

November 14, 2017

The Book of Revelation tells us that the Antichrist is going to make war with Christians. (Rev. 13) This same spirit of murder has been operating for the past few years in a number of nations around the world as thousands of Christians have been slaughtered in the Middle East, China, Vietnam, Cambodia and the many killings by Muslims in Africa.

CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA, 2015

The church shooting on June 17, 2015 hit home when a 21 year old white supremacist named Dylann Roof entered a Methodist church in Charleston during a Wednesday night prayer and Bible study. He was warmly greeted by black Christians, who extended their love to him. After having been in the meeting for some time and when the people started to pray, Roof stood up, removed a gun from his backpack and began shooting the people who had done nothing other than show love to him. Nine people died that night and this young man showed no remorse at his trial.

SUTHERLAND, TEXAS, 2017

On November 5, 2017, an avowed atheist named Devin Kelley prepared to visit a small Southern Baptist church in Sutherland. His purpose for going was not peaceful, with the intent to worship God, but to take the lives of the people gathered there. The church building had a single aisle down the middle of the sanctuary with pews on either side and Kelley took his time, walking up and down the aisle, calmly shooting his victims in the head. It didn’t matter whether it was an adult, child or a baby; they all died under the withering gunfire. He reloaded and went back down the aisle to see if his victims were dead, if they moved, he shot them again.

As Kelley exited the front entrance to take a break, he was confronted by a man living just a few houses away from the church. Kelley was wearing body armor but he was shot in the leg and the foot. The surprised gunman let go of his rifle and ran to his car. The neighbor flagged down a man in a pick-up truck and asked for help to chase down the shooter. After several miles of a high speed chase, Kelly lost control of his vehicle and crashed. He chose to turn his gun on himself and committed suicide.

 

TO BE ARMED OR NOT

None of the church members were armed in Charleston. When the pastor heard Dylann Roof say that he was going to kill them all, he tried in vain to stop Roof and was killed instantly. He was powerless to stop this young man from shooting more church members.

No one was armed in the Southern Baptist church in Sutherland. They only thing they could do was hide under the pews and play dead. When the neighbor across the street heard the shooting, he grabbed his rifle and ran out of the house barefoot to confront Kelley. As a result, some of the church members survived.

Had someone in the Methodist church been armed, not as many people would have been killed before the Dylann Roof was neutralized. Had someone in the Southern Baptist church in Sutherland been armed, the outcome would also have been very different.

As a pastor, I understand we are living in hard times and things are not like they were some 40 years ago when I came to Christ. As a church, we have taken steps to ensure that if someone enters our church with the intent to kill, they will be met with equal force. It is my duty to protect my congregation and I am not going to apologize to bleeding heart liberals who say we should turn the other cheek. I would like to point out that in the two church shootings I mentioned, 35 Christians turned the other cheek and were rewarded with death. Their souls are now in heaven but their time on earth was cut short.

JUDGE ROY MOORE

According to the Constitution, a citizen is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Roy Moore is running for a vacant senate seat in the state of Alabama. He is a hardcore conservative Christian, a defender of the Constitution, who was twice removed as a judge in Alabama for upholding the Constitution and refusing to remove a 5,280-pound granite monument depicting the Ten Commandments in the rotunda of the state’s judicial building.

He is not part of the establishment and is not liked by the Republican Party. President Donald Trump endorsed Luther Strange during the primary election, and unlike Roy Moore, he received a large amount of financial support.

Even though President Trump went to Alabama to campaign on behalf of Luther Strange, Moore handily won the primary election with 55% of the vote. The media all over the United States spoke about the devastating blow dealt to the national GOP leadership.

ROLLING OUT THE BIG GUNS

The republican leadership in Washington D.C. was shaken to the core when Steve Bannon resigned because he was free to go after the establishment and back populist candidates. With the Tea Party and the conservative Christians backing Moore, he would obviously win over his democratic opponent unless some dirty secret could be found that would turn off the voters and make his supporters back off.

The owner of the online giant shopping site, Amazon, is Jeff Bezos. Throughout his life he has made decisions which show that he is an enemy to Christianity and conservative Americans. Bezos purchased The Washington Post in 2013 for $250 million in cash, turning it into a left leaning news corporation. The newspaper today maintains investigators who are capable of digging into someone’s life.

Bezos turned to his investigators for help in assassinating Moore’s character by creating a widespread perception of guilt before an actual verdict in a court of law. This is also known as “trial by media” and it has been carried out many times on people running for a political office.

After all, it was the now famous Washington Post investigators Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, who took down President Richard Nixon and forced him to resign in 1972. They had a high ranking source within the FBI known only as “Deep Throat,” who furnished Woodward and Bernstein with classified information. The FBI and other agencies tried in vain to discover the identity of this mysterious source but the Washington Post administration knew how to protect their source.

THE ACCUSERS

So when it came to Roy Moore, Jeff Bezos unleashed his investigators from the paper to dig and probe Moore’s history. Such an investigation is not cheap but money is of no concern when its purpose is nefarious. According to Roy’s wife, Kayla, every family member on both sides and all their friends were tracked down and even harassed. When they responded by saying positive things about Roy Moore, the investigators would abruptly disengage themselves. They were not looking for good things, but ways to defame his character.

There is an old saying, “Drag a $20 bill through a trailer park, and every prostitute living in the park will come out to try to catch it.” The Washington Post did just that as investigators dug deeply into Roy Moore’s past and found he had a habit of dating high school girls. At that time in Alabama the legal age for girls to date men was 16.

By going through high school yearbooks in the town where Moore lived at that time, the investigators were able to compile names and addresses of young women in Moore’s past. Some of them stated they had dated Moore and they were offered large sums of cash to come forward with the claim that Roy Moore had sexually molested them in some way.

There are two women who currently stand out among the accusers.

DEBORAH WESSON GIBSON

Deborah Wesson Gibson has been active in the Democratic Party and worked as sign language interpreter for vice president Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton. Coincidentally, she is currently active on the campaign of the democratic candidate Doug Jones, who happens to be running against Roy Moore. I’m being sarcastic when I say that there is “obviously no bias on her part!”

LEIGH CORFMAN

Leigh Corfman claims that Roy Moore molested her when she was 14 years old. Examining her background does not give any credence to her accusations. She used alcohol and drugs during her high school years and had many boyfriends with whom she was sexually active. She also tried to commit suicide at the age of 16. She has been married and divorced three times and also declared bankruptcy three times.

MITT ROMNEY

As I stated earlier, any person is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. However, it would seem that some would like to see that provision removed from the Constitution. Mitt Romney stated the following on his Twitter account:

“Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections. I believe Leigh Corfman. Her account is too serious to ignore. Moore is unfit for office and should step aside.”

I can tell you that as an immigrant, citizen of the United States and a Christian, I have a lot of respect for rule of law and what is being done to Roy Moore is simply disgraceful. How can we allow “trial by media” and call into question Moore’s character and destroy his career without proof? Why are we employing a double standard on a man who has served in public office for four decades? This is just wrong and these dirty political shenanigans have to stop.

MY CONCLUSION

Roy Moore has run for office a number of times. During his 39 years as a public servant, none of these women had previously made a sexual harassment charge against him. In fact, none of them ever filed a police report. It was not until investigators from Washington Post showed up with cash from Jeff Bezos that these women suddenly had their memories jogged and they tearfully told their stories in public. Do these women want justice? It would seem that money, not justice, motivated these women to publicly accuse Roy Moore of sexual harassment and rape.

If there is blood in the water, you can be sure that a shark will arrive to investigate. Gloria Allred is one such person. She is a shark, a hired gun if you will, with a name that invokes fear based upon her track record. Allred is a stalwart for abortion and a diehard democrat. Any time there is blood in the water, she will be there using her skills as an attorney and “champion the cause of any downtrodden woman” to stand against a “predator” like Roy Moore.

If you are gullible enough to believe the story fostered by Gloria Allred, the Washington Post and these women who have prostituted themselves for money, I have a great deal on a famous bridge in San Francisco. I am willing to sell it to you for a great price!

REDEEMED SINNERS

I have been walking with the Lord Jesus since January of 1966 and I have attended many revivals, conferences, and conventions. I remember hearing testimonies during the Billy Graham crusades when former gang members and murderers gave glowing testimonies how they were saved from their old sinful lives and were now walking with Jesus. Chuck Colson, convicted for his involvement in the Watergate break-in became a national celebrity and founder of Prison Fellowship Ministry. The Mafia member Jim Vaus and the country singer and disc jockey Stuart Hamblin were saved during the 1949 Billy Graham Crusade in Los Angeles. Both men had a troubled past with alcohol, domestic violence etc. But once they were born again, they were also forgiven and paraded on the national revival circuit in the United States and treated like heroes.

Nicky Cruz and Sonny Arguinzoni were gang members in New York and saved under the ministry of David Wilkerson. They murdered people, raped women and did many evil deeds. Yet they were forgiven, redeemed by the Lord, and both men became prominent ministers.

I remember attending many Full Gospel Business Men's International Fellowship conventions and hearing testimonies from men and women who had been redeemed from their sinful past.

Even if Roy Moore has mistreated women in the past, it is obvious that he has proved he is a true Christian. Should we not forgive this man if God has already forgiven him? The apostle Paul was a murderer, but he had an experience with the Lord on the road to Damascus and God made him an apostle and moved him into the ministry.

VILE ACCUSATIONS

All Christians have a past, some worse than others. I was once a drunkard, fornicator, gangster and street fighter during my teenage years. But I repented and God did not reject me. Over the years I have lived a completely different life and preached the Gospel for the last 40 years. If someone were to bring vile accusations against me like they have done with Roy Moore, would I be disqualified from Christian service?

Something similar in fact happened when the Prime Minister of Sweden was assassinated in 1986. I immigrated to the United States from Sweden in 1963 and had visited my birth country on several mission trips in the 1970’s and 80’s. Almost immediately after Olof Palme’s death, my name was in every major newspaper as the mastermind for his death and I was inundated with interview requests from Swedish newspapers. As far as they were concerned, I was the one who killed Palme. Never mind the fact that I was a Christian and would never murder anyone or that I lived in California and had not been to Sweden since 1983. Nevertheless, the allegations continued and I was their scapegoat; the negative media coverage was so prevalent that I even received a phone call from a family member decrying my supposed action.

The FBI got involved when the Swedish Security Service (SAPO) sent an investigator to interview me here in the United States. They are responsible for counter-espionage, counter-terrorism, the protection of dignitaries and investigating crimes against national security and terrorist crimes. The murder of a Swedish prime minister would fall within their jurisdiction.

The interview started with intimidation when I was presented with a transcript of a cassette recording in which I advocated getting rid of Olof Palme and the Social Democrats who were ruining Sweden. They wanted me to be guilty of this crime, so they took my words out of context. Any sane person would have known I was advocating their removal by voting them out of office.

Then I was presented with a report of my life where they had interviewed everyone associated with me in my hometown in an effort to find anything incriminating. They questioned my family members, neighbors, classmates, coworkers. Basically anyone remotely connected to me, however remote it turned out to be. Given my past and how I used to be a drunkard, fornicator, gangster and street fighter during my teenage years, this turned out to be a waste of time as I did not have a criminal record. My life had also radically been changed since coming back to Christ in 1965 when God changed my heart and I dropped those activities.

I embarrassed the SAPO agent by telling him two things. First, I informed him it was ridiculous to interview a Christian preacher for murder because this practice is condemned by God, and secondly, I told him to go home and stop wasting the Swedish taxpayers’ money by spending time in sunny California. If the FBI agents weren’t present, I am sure the SAPO agent would have attacked me because he got very red in his face.

I don’t believe that Roy Moore is guilty of molesting any of the women that have come forward with accusations. But if he were, cannot God forgive him? Is Roy Moore any different than the rest of us? There is no one who is sinless. I am taking Moore’s denial at face value based upon his profession of faith and track record. When he says, “I’m not guilty,” I am willing to take his word for it because there is no proof. Until they can be proved, allegations remain merely assertions.

If the policy of these “pious” republicans and democrats is going to be the new standard in America, wouldn’t that disqualify me and all the work I done for Christ since 1966? Won’t all my work have been in vain? Remember the woman who was caught in adultery?

“And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him.

But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord.

And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.” (John 8:3-11)

Don’t’ get me wrong, there are consequences for sin, but Jesus showed this woman grace. Let’s give Roy Moore the benefit of the doubt and not equate allegations with fact.
