Merry Christmas!
~ From all of us in the Benham family

Christmas Message from Flip
Eight grandchildren, what a miracle! My dad, an only child, was shot down twice in the Pacific during WWII. God's footprints, though unseen, were surely there. Shortly after he returned from the war he married my mom (pictured in the middle) and they had two children, my sister Chrissy and me. I was the last “Benham.”

A growing split in the pro-life community
Posted: December 15, 2006

The debate over incremental anti-abortion laws, versus working toward the goal of stopping abortion altogether, is a necessary crisis of conscience for pro-lifers. Its resolution will determine the future of abortion in America.

The First Gift was a Baby
Posted December 23, 2006
This is always the hardest time of year to be a lifesaver outside this deathcamp in Granite City, Illinois. They kill between 150-200 babies now 5-6 days a week. It was always so special to see pregnant women or be pregnant at this time of year. But sadly, nowadays, children are considered a curse rather than a blessing. Do you realize the first gift that God gave the world was a baby? His name was Jesus. He was born in a manger and died on a cross for our sins so that one day we live with Him in eternity.

If they were not murdered children,
then what exactly were they?

Gentle Christians on their way to court in Jackson, MS
We went to Jackson expecting to be hammered by the courts as arbitrarily as we were persecuted on the streets in July. Our experience in July taught us that Jackson had chosen to serve another king and banish King Jesus from her streets.

Abortion Protesters in Court

Rev. Flip Benham says, "We're going to court, we're going to give 'em heaven in court, smiling in Jesus's name, thankful that God came to this earth to be with us over 2000 years ago and thankful that we could allow the theology of the church to become the biography in Jackson and lots of little babies were saved this week when we were here in July."

December 18, 2006

Eleven gentle Christians will be returning to Jackson, Mississippi this Tuesday, December 19, 2006, to stand trial for exposing the horror of abortion on the streets of Jackson. There is one remaining abortion mill in the entire state of Mississippi, and it is located in Jackson. Jackson was the focal point of America's war over abortion this past summer as hundreds of Christians came to the streets.

Posted December 16, 2006
We just finished up a long day at Wal-Mart Stores Home Office in Bentonville, Arkansas. Saints of God from all across the United States converged on Bentonville, Arkansas from December 14-16, 2006.

Abortion Industry Crumbling in Bridgeport
By Marilyn Carroll
Posted December 14, 2006
Praise be to God, the abortion industry is crumbling before our very eyes. From what we saw; FIVE MOMS WENT IN TO KILL THEIR BABIES. Of course this is five too many, but it is fewer than normal. Remember in 1990 when we first started this ministry, they were killing up to 80 babies a day, four days a week with two abortionist on killing duty. Now they are down to two days a week, one baby killer and single digits. One day the killing will stop, hopefully very soon. Please put this on your prayer lists. Thank you. Bane

The Election is Over - Now Let's Storm the Gates of Hell!
By Flip Benham
Posted December 13, 2006
The election results are in. The News media frenzy is over. Many of us are remembering once again that life does not begin and end in Washington, D.C. National, state and local elections are not nearly as important as breathless radio and TV talk show hosts would have us believe. Understand, ratings are driven by numbers. Every little thing therefore, no matter how utterly trivial, becomes a monumental “breaking news story.”

City ordinance trumps U.S. Constitution, Hendersonville police say
By Evangelist Randy Bane
Posted December 13, 2006
Here is a report from our precious brothers in Christ as they brought the Gospel of Christ to the very gates of hell.  This is from the Bible Belt.  Startling how our religious liberties are disappearing through unconstitutional city ordinances.  We are witnessing the systematic criminalization of Christianity and it is not because the enemy is so strong that we can't resist him.  It is because we Christians are so cowardly that we would surrender anything to keep our own personal peace.

AFA calls off boycott of Wal-Mart stores
By David Crary - Associated Press
Nov 30, 2006, 17:21
Discount retailer agrees to earmark funds for specific causes rather than making unrestricted gifts to groups.   This is an article from the “Dallas Voice,” a blatantly pro-homosexual news publication. Sometimes it is helpful to view “our declared victories” from the perspective of our enemies.  What have we won as far as bringing Wal-Mart to repentance over what it has done to the Gospel of Christ, to the legacy of Sam Walton, to the biblical principles that made Wal-Mart great, and to the American Christian family?

A Word about Fetal Pain Legislation

That's right!  The devil would be happy to sign this, oh so cleverly crafted, piece of legislation.  “We need to be kind to the babies we are going to murder, so let's reduce the pain for God's sake.  Let's be humane in the way we kill.”   See, the devil loses nothing here.  It is just a “gentler and kinder” way to kill.

Operation Save Wal-Mart, North Carolina

Pastor Flip Benham led a group of saints to the Wal-Mart on JW Clay in Charlotte. We had a glorious “black Friday” proclaiming Jesus to the people in the Wal-Mart parking lot and along the streets approaching the store. We passed out over 2600 flyers and received many more positive responses than negative. About thirty Christians came “out of the closet” to allow their theology to become alive and active to confront Wal-Mart with her sin.

Cal Zastrow, right, and his 13-year-old daughter Corrie, left, protest on the curb in front of Wal-Mart Friday afternoon. Zastrow is protesting Wal-Mart for their decision to sponsor National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, their funding for Planned Parenthood and their decision to sell Plan B, a birth control medication. Zastrow held signs that depicted two aborted fetuses. Many people passing by thought the signs were disgusting and had vulgar words for Zastrow. "Oh thank you, I am number one," Zastrow said in response to negative comments or gestures.

Dr. Wiley Drake stands for righteousness, says "NO" to Wal-Mart
Posted November 23, 2006
Dear Mr. Scott,
Please accept my appreciation for Wal-Mart taking a stand to remain neutral in the cultural wars.
However as long as you are killing babies with your selling "Plan B" I will not return to your stores.
Also as long as you are still a member of the Sodomite Chamber of Commerce I will not return to your store.
I could go on but the list is long, and until Wal Mart Repents I will do all I can to keep people out of your stores.

OSA will expose the truth about Wal-Mart!!
by Flip Benham
Posted November 22, 2006
The same spirit that inhabited the shell of William Jefferson Clinton has found a resting place in the confines of the once, God honoring shell, of the Wal-Mart Corporation.  It has been caught dishonoring the God of its founder Sam Walton.  It has been caught “dissing” the American Christian family.  It has been caught calling that which is evil, good and that which is good, evil.  It has been caught by the Church of Jesus Christ betraying the God of the Bible, calling Him “a big, fat, black dyke.”

Wal-Mart blacklisted for Black Friday
Shoppers urged to boycott No. 1 retailer due to pro-homosexual commitments
Here is a powerful article written by Bob Unruh on WorldNetDaily.com.  Bob has been recording for all of us, in several different articles, the incredible slide of Wal-Mart into the promotion and all-out support of homosexual sodomy.  Not only that, Wal-Mart is a financial supporter of Planned Parenthood, and dispenses the plan B abortifacient that kills baby boys and girls in their mother's wombs.  Sam Walton would never have allowed his corporation to ever sink so far from the principles of Almighty God.  He would have closed it all down before allowing this.  Money was never Mr. Sam's first priority.

Reported by Marilyn Carroll
In spite of attacks by the enemy to cause confusion, lives were still saved at the Bridgeport, CT abortion mill, November 14, 2006. Why? Because Jesus is greater than anything Satan can ever try to do. Sixteen lifesavers were present, no escorts. The police were on the scene. Pastor Miller represented the local clergy. He led two women to Christ after one of them changed her mind about killing her baby. Radical lesbians, one wearing a white shirt that says, "Nothing Christ-like in terrorizing women," and one holding a sign "Pro-choice - don't bring God into this," came out to try to overturn the efforts of God's people. They came out losers again. In spite of what the enemy may try to do, God turns things around for good for those who love Him and are called to His purposes.

I have worked for Wal-Mart stores for over 13 years. On September 5, 2006, I received a call from my brother asking me if I was aware of what was going on in Wal-Mart. He then informed me that my company had joined the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC). I was shocked! I called my home store and asked one of the managers if this was true. He read me a short e-mail stating that it was, and gave me a phone number to call the home office in Bentonville, Arkansas.

Pastor Mark is an awesome man of God!  He never fails to find new and creative ways to allow the theology of the church house to become biography in the streets.  Not only are the messages on the marquis in front of “Spirit One Church” hard-hitting, but his God inspired plan to bring truth to the churches in his area reminds me of David doing raids on the enemy's camp from Adullam's cave.  “Operation Righteous Leaders” is something we all should consider.

But a critic of the YWCA said that for the organization to "present itself as a cure for the violence that is savaging our children is like Osama Bin Laden coming to the aid of Israel."

SIN is Destroying America
Written by Flip Benham with introduction by Wesleyan pastor
October 8, 2006
Why do we spend so much time and money trying to reduce the harm of sin? Schools throw condoms at our kids so that they can sin safely. Clean needles are given to drug addicts so they can sin safely. The homosexual community is doing all it can to reduce the harm (AIDS) of its own sin. Alcoholics are told to “drink responsibly” so they can sin safely. Abortion enables us to sin and avoid the consequences (a baby).

America's Sins are Coming Home to Roost
Written by Jo Scott
Posted: October 4, 2006

America 's sins have come home to roost. The sins of the heathen are not responsible for our deplorable state, but rather it is the uselessness of the Church. We've been complacent, reveling in our luxuries instead of loving the world around us enough to stand between them and their destruction. We've eaten the sweetness of the world until our teeth are rotten and our bones are softened and bent from the lack of meat. We are weak, unwilling to stand for even the most vulnerable among us, the unborn child.

Here is just one more example of the media painting a beautiful picture of pure and unadulterated evil.  Anne Blythe of The News & Observer, the local newspaper for the city of Durham, North Carolina, tells a story (a whopper of a lie) about the wonders of the homosexual lust fest held on the East Campus of Duke University this past Saturday.  For the life of me, as I was reading this article, I couldn't stop thinking about the Disney classic, “Pinocchio.”  You remember the story.  The good father Gepetto creates his premier puppet “Pinocchio” and wishes that he would become a “real boy.”

Just reading the title of this article can leave little doubt as to its positive portrayal of homosexual sodomy.  The Dallas Morning News and the newspapers of our land have become the purveyors of sin.  They paint it in the prettiest of colors to cover-up its hideous and deadly design.  They make it appear as if everyone is having a good time.

“The Makeover of Wal-Mart” appears on today's AOL opening page Thursday, September 14, 2006.  You might want to see it.  It brings to light how Lee Scott, the CEO of Wal-Mart Stores and called "the most powerful CEO in America" by Fortune Magazine, has hired outside "Image Consultants" to clean up its image.  Cleaning up its image, however, means doing away with the Godly principles that made it great.

Pastor Mark Holick Stands Again
September 11, 2006
Pastor Mark Holick is a mighty man of God.  He stood with us in Wichita, Kansas, during the “Summer of Mercy” in the summer of 1991, as God gave us a glorious revival of true Christianity in that city.  Thousands of Christians picked up their cross and laid down their lives that children in the womb might live.  He has been the faithful Pastor of Spirit One Church in Wichita for the past 16 years.  Hundreds of children are alive today because of his efforts.  He has stood, no matter the cost, for King Jesus and the lives of His precious preborn children.  Today, Pastor Mark is taking a stand again!

Abortion protesters can carry banners

GRANITE CITY - Large anti-abortion signs, including pictures of dismembered fetuses, can be streetside at Granite City's Labor Day parade, a federal judge ruled Thursday. U.S. District Judge William Stiehl granted a temporary injunction against enforcement of a city law banning signs larger that 8.5-by-11 inches within 25 feet of a parade route.

Yale School of Medicine Requires Abortion Training for Ob/gyn Residents
By Peter J. Smith
August 23, 2006
Posted August 25, 2006
What we have been saying for years is corroborated again in this article.  No student working toward his degree to practice medicine desires to become an abortionist.  But, in view of the abortion industry's collapse in finding new doctors to replace its aging child-killers, Planned Parenthood has succeeded in requiring ALL resident Ob/gyn's attending Yale University to learn the abortion procedure.  What a travesty!  ~ Flip

Clarion Ledger Lies Again
Written by Flip Benham
Posted August 24, 2006
Here is yet another example of the Clarion Ledger, the local newspaper in Jackson, Mississippi, bringing forth as fact, a bold faced lie.  Never in its history has Operation Rescue or Operation Save America ever been tied to a violent crime - not ONE!  In the over 57,000 arrests that have taken place at Operation Rescue sponsored events since 1986, there has not been one convicted act of violence anywhere in America, or on the face of this globe.

As one who has been a pro-life activist since 1976, traveled nationally and internationally as a missionary evangelist, and enjoyed the privilege of working on various church staffs as a volunteer and paid employee, I feel I am qualified to comment on the recent flurry of press (good and bad) and opinions (ignorant and informed) of those criticizing the efforts of Operation Save America and others who graphically portrayed the realities of what is taking place within the abortion chamber on North State Street.

Read your front page story “Are Black People Avoiding Abortion Agenda?” and found it the fairest story published in Jackson during my two week visit to the city for the OSA event. However, the “Abortion Agenda” is exactly what White owned newspapers and White owned television makes every attempt to avoid.

Letter to Tanya Britton, Pres. Pro-life MS
From Doug and Laree Hiser
Posted August 11, 2006

We plan on continuing to be out there in the fight, but we wish not to be associated with Pro-Life Mississippi, which is now perceived as being led by a bunch of religious fanatics who do not respect the law of the land. So in light of this, will you please remove my wife and me from your mailing list and sidewalk counseling calendar. We think our message is strengthened by not being a part of Pro-Life Mississippi, but by participating as Sidewalk Counselors as part of a church that believes that we need to be out there helping the lost.

Dear Doug: I know you meant well by your letter to Tanya and me about your feelings of shame over her arrest while president of Pro-Life Ms. You mentioned a charge of disorderly conduct and something about this being used in DUI arrests. I don't know where you got your information but it is most incorrect.

I've just returned from four days on the streets in Jackson, Mississippi, fighting abortion with Operation Save America. Despite what you read in the press, OSA is a group of God fearing, Christ honoring, patriotic Americans. They are not a street mob, as many would have you believe, but faithful, gentle Christians who hate what is happening to America.

When Salon and the others attack us like this, you've got to know that we're moving in the right direction because they are doing everything they can to shame us off the street. They fabricate lies; their father is the author of all lies. We must learn to despise the shame. Jesus did it! We must pick up our cross and follow Him. “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Heb 12:2)

Personally, I hate the graphic pictures of aborted babies and wish that it were not necessary to use them.  The bloody, mutilated body of JESUS that hung on Calvary 2000 years ago was probably very shocking then also. Further, after WWII, horrendous pictures of victims in Nazi death camps were what convinced the world of atrocities committed in THOSE evil places. 

RESPONSE to Protesters Helped us the Most by Departing
By Marilyn Carroll

Letters to the Editor – Jackson Clarion Ledger
The reason OSA goes to churches with signs of aborted babies is to wake up the congregants to go to the streets where the killing center is located in their community and help save the babies lives before their very own parents kill them. Shame on the church if they don't care that innocent little boys and girls are murdered in their city! God commands us to go to the Church, judgment begins in the house of God.

You can't tear down any of Satan's strongholds if you falter in the preliminaries. Showing yellow is an almost insurmountable obstacle to overcome when you do it your first time under fire. It's hard to get men to follow you once you show yellow. You can't take back what the devil stole and you certainly can't take the gates of the city if words and threats strike fear in your heart."
