As With Roses is the compelling true story of Obadiah Holmes, a Baptist preacher who lived in the early American Massachusetts colony. His commitment to sharing the Baptist doctrine of faith was a serious threat to the standing order of the Congregational Church and its governing authority. When Obadiah openly denounces that authority, and the practice of infant baptism, he is arrested and subjected to cruel punishment that goes beyond the level of offenses, including thirty lashes at the whipping post in Boston on September 5, 1651. Because of this cruel punishment, King Charles II granted pastor John Clarke permission to write the charter of Rhode Island in 1663, the first document in America granting religious freedom to any who resided there, and the basis for religious freedom in our current U.S. Constitution. As With Roses is a story of religious persecution, of Baptist perseverance in the face of immense suffering, and of God's amazing deliverance. You need to see this film!
