Jim Pouillon National High School Witness
CONCORD, NC, Nov. 19 /Christian Newswire/ — On Tuesday, November 24, 2009, gentle Christian warriors (in over 50 cities) will allow the theology of the church house to become biography at local high schools across our nation in honor of Jim Pouillon — America’s first Christian, pro-life martyr. Jim was shot and killed on September 11, 2009, while ministering the Gospel of Christ outside the Owosso High School in Owosso, Michigan. On Tuesday, November 24, Cal Zastrow will stand at the same exact spot where Jim was martyred.
Jim lived out God’s love for unborn babies every day of his life for the past twenty years. He often said, “I am doing for the babies what my Lord did for me.” Everyone in Owosso had seen him with his graphic signs. His death proved the mettle of his words.
How soon abortion would end if those who claimed Christ lived like this. On Tuesday, November 24, Christians will stand where Jim stood and be a voice for his beloved voiceless children. We will proclaim the Gospel of Christ at the gates of hell just like he did. It is our turn now!
As a result of Jim’s martyrdom, The New York Times went to Owosso and did a story on October 10, 2009, publishing the actual photos of babies killed by abortion. It was amazing! The Times did more to expose the horror of abortion in one day than pastors have done in the past thirty-six years.
Yes, The New York Times went to Owosso, Michigan, to find out why this grandfather would carry graphic pictures of living and aborted babies to the gates of hell for over twenty years. Jim’s witness has gone far beyond anything he could have imagined in this life.
“Abortion in America is coming to an end! It is our privilege and duty to push it over the cliff; bury it in a shallow grave and leave no marker to remind us of its savagery.” Flip Benham, director Operation Save America.
