The True Untold Story of Obadiah Holmes
The road to religious freedom is one
that is bathed in the blood of Baptist persecution.
With Roses is the compelling true story of Obadiah Holmes,
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! You need to teach
your children their true heritage!
It's time for the truth to be told!
