Believe it or NOT there are those out there that claim the name of Jesus and support KILLING abortion doctors and bombing buildings for Jesus. Here is a recent post I received from an facebook user named Russell Mallon
It has been brought to my attention that you mocked, condemned, and damned to hell to a certain Paul Hill for his defensive action.
As such, I am disfellowshipping you until you publicly repent.
If you do not know who Paul Hill is allow me to introduce him to you.
On July 29th 1994 in Pensacola Florida, Paul Hill murdered an abortion doctor, and his security guard, the doctor’s wife was also shot in the head with a shotgun at close range but survived. He was tried in court and found guilty of two murders and one attempted murder of another. The court ordered an execution to be given as his punishment. Hill’s action was done to promote others to follow his example and he was put to death by lethal injection on September 3rd 2003.
THIS WAS A PHOTO TAKEN FROM A FLORDIA NEWSPAPER
In a statement before his execution, Hill said that he felt no remorse for his actions, and that he expected "a great reward in Heaven." Hill left behind a manuscript manifesto which his backers promised him they would publish. That manifesto and his address to the jury that convicted him echoed the words of John Brown who had attempted to incite a violent insurrection to end slavery in the United States. Hill was not apologetic for the killings, and in his last words he encouraged others who believe abortion is an illegitimate use of lethal force to "do what you have to do to stop it.”
I and four other men were outside the building where Hill was to be executed, in Starke Florida supporting the execution of Paul Hill and reproving his followers that considered him an Apostle/Prophet to be a fraud. Hill became exactly what he preached against, A MURDERER.
“But let none of you suffer as a murderer” -1 Peter 4:15
Hill wanted to be executed which is why he murdered in the state Florida, as both Texas and Florida are known to carry out State executions, unlike California where an inmate on death-row will most likely die of old age before getting executed. Paul Hill wanted to be a martyr like Stephen, but failed. The news media was ready to report that Bible believing Christians support what Hill did and we were there to balance out the media that those who support Paul Hill do not characterize the Body of Christ. In fact those who believe in murder for Jesus, TAKE GOD’S NAME IN VAIN.
In the famous 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision that made abortion legal in the United States, Norma Leah McCorvey was the plaintiff named Jane Doe. I’m sure she would have been murdered by these people back in 1973 and she would have gone to hell/fire prematurely. She has since changed her position and is now saved and currently speaking out against abortion. See Brother Flip Benham of Operation Save America for details on Norma McCorvey.
Below was my response to Russell Mallon:
SHOULD WE MURDER ABORTION DOCTORS YOU ASK?
Paul Hill was not mocked, we preached against what he did. He murdered a doctor, his bodyguard and shot the doctors wife in the head but she survived, that does constitutes a murderer. He became nothing more than what he preached against, A MURDERER. No different than preachers speaking out against sodomy only to find out they had homosexual relations themselves during their public rebuking of such sin.
We find no where in the New Testament to murder for Jesus, nor do we find not one example of anyone murdering for Jesus. 1 Peter 4:5 clearly says “But let none of you suffer as a murderer” and Hill was not arrested and jailed for the sake of the gospel but for murdering two people and almost three. It is a very small group within the anti-abortion world that believes Hill to be an example of what we need to do today and it is that ilk that accused us of mocking him at the execution as a homo would accuse us of mocking if we preach against gay pride.
I do not endorse the bombing of abortion clinics or shooting abortion doctors for Jesus, maybe you do?
For over 30 years I have preached outside of these wicked clinics across this nation, preached at national N.O.W. rallies and large pro-abortion marches but it is our function to do just that: preach/warn/admonish the sinner, not murder the sinner.
I do understand the difference between murder and killing. Hill murdered and was executed as a murderer. They claim as any inmate that is executed will allege, “…..it was a set-up…….he never presented his case properly……the government wanted him killed…..or the celebrated…..the court system failed.”
Maybe somehow you have become involved these small groups that promote and justify murder and bombing all under the umbrella of being pro-life, such as ‘Missionaries to the preborn’ in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and ‘Army of God’ based in GA. but in fact promote death. Both of these groups have the FBI investigating them for their public support of killing abortion doctors and defending people like Kopp, Griffin, Shannon, Hill, and Salvi.
These groups are as cultist as a Fred Phelps who sees homos everywhere, in every verse and the reason America is doomed. But at least the Phelps Klan does not publicly endorse the murder of homosexuals.
A Newsweek investigation suggests that Matthew Trewhella with ‘Missionaries to the preborn’ apparently influenced one of his followers to become potentially violent. "John" (real name not reported by Newsweek) a young army reservist from a staunch Catholic Midwestern family joined Missionaries to the Pre-Born in 1990. He later lived in the basement of Trewhella's home for almost five months. His reading there included stories about violence for a cause, such as abolitionist John Brown and convicted abortion-clinic bomber Michael Bray. John himself was arrested almost 70 times in anti-abortion protests. John's family became alarmed by his "robotic" behavior. They read his journals, which included plans for a guerrilla campaign of abortion clinic bombings and the murder of doctors. In January 1991 John's family hired cult ''deprogrammer'' Rick Ross, who once deprogrammed the Waco Davidian followers of David Koresh. Ross said, "Trewhella had brainwashed John so that the young man could be wound up and sent out on auto-destroy." The intervention was successful. John went on to graduate school and never again associated with Trewhella who also believes that Social Security is Idolatry, endorses not paying ‘Property Tax’ and gives reasons why Christians should not obtain a state ‘marriage license.’
Neal Horsley from the ‘Army of God’ (link below) has run for Governor in the state of Georgia and once said he was ‘willing to kill his own son’ who is a Sergeant in the Army, if he were sent to Georgia to stop him from seceding. He has admitted to nearly killing his son once before and confessed to having sex with a mule on a farm and has a taste in artwork that makes John Wayne Gacy’s artwork seem average.
Groups like this have another common denominator besides thinking themselves to be modern day prophets which gives them special liberty to bomb or murder.
They are anti-government, therefore it is they that are the true patriots and it is they that will be used as vessels to bring America back to a Christian Nation.
Paul Hill may have started out as a good Christian willing to reprove sin but due to zeal rather than inspiration died a murderer, as did Timothy McVeigh who was no patriot but likewise a murderer. Ever noticed we find no mention of Moses ever preaching against Pharaoh in the scriptures for murdering those young boys at the birth of Moses, nor did John the Baptist ever tried to assassinate Herod for the blood of all those young boys murdered at the birth of Jesus.
Our government does not take and force abortion, it is women that pursue to murder their unborn babies, be it at a clinic, in an alley or with a clothes hanger. The same government that allows abortion, will give almost anyone the right to stand on that very sidewalk and preach against those same clinics. In some cities, one can not stand near these clinics and this is due to groups like this that threatened to bomb or kill doctors within these building, so Free-Speech took a few steps backwards as a result of this death theology. If you are going to blame the government for allowing these abortion clinics than one must also BLAME GOD for putting the putting the forbidden tree in the Garden of Eden.
Both of these groups will stand together with Catholics praying the rosary at an abortion clinic but demand the death of those who murder babies. Now if pecking order means anything to God the first two of the Ten Commandments deal with idolatry and graven images whereas ‘murder’ is ranked number SIX. They should rebuke anyone praying to another as in ‘hail Mary’ rather than God the Father as Jesus taught ‘when ye pray say, our Father.’ This is Prayer 101. Me thinketh these groups will allow tree huggers praying to trees on the sidewalk to join their ranks, if they are against abortion.
Like the Phelps, these kill for Jesus ilk, believe everything rotates around one issue, as they see abortion everywhere, calamities based on abortion, the downfall of America is due to abortion, the economy collapsing for the killing of the unborn, not to mention if you see their signs and hear their message it has noting to do with the gospel but a sole issue, abortion. If this is the same group you wish to fellowship with, you need to know they wanted to murder myself, threatening my life, phoning in death threats at my home phone and emails filled with hate. One of these misfits even punched me three times in the head when I was not looking at a N.O.W. rally in Washington DC.
Regarding your KILLING for Jesus position, can you show me one example where someone in the New Testament killed sinners or where in any Epistle we are encouraged to kill unrepented sinners?
If you believe this is behavior is biblical and just, I need to ask you this question Russell.
Have you ever KILLED someone for Jesus?
“Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin”
The book of James will admonish you that IF you have not KILLED an abortion doctor then you currently live in sin. This is what you believe not me and IF you have not killed a abortion doctor, knowing this is the right and godly thing to do.
YOU LIVE IN SIN.
Do not be bewitched with the word ‘Defensive Action’ as is the new name or code name for endorsing murder or bombing a building. Anytime people coin a new phrase for something known there is sin at hand. Fornication is ‘living together,’ homosexually is ‘gay,’ drunk is ‘partying’ and if you are an atheist you are just being ‘open minded.’ Sinners are ‘non judgmental’ with religious being ‘tolerant’ of everyone and soon a Bible believing Christian will be deemed a ‘hater.’
BEWARE OF RENAMING WHAT IS OBVIOUS, murder is murder.
There are many groups like ‘Operation America’ which consider bombing and killing for Jesus as unbiblical yet they are very active in their public stand against abortion.
Hopefully this sheds light on my position and I will NOT repent for keeping within the New Testament standard of preaching to sinners rather killing them. KNOW YOUR BIBLE and do not allow emotions to move you with this gruesome sin.
Oh, one last point, Paul Hill DID NOT STOP one abortion that day when he committed two and almost three murders, as any abortions scheduled that day were sent to another death mill and provided on another date.

This is not a disagreement of being pre-trib, post-trib or mid-trib, or another perspective to interpret a parable. This theology promotes death and literal murder under the umbrella of Christianity.
If we kill abortion doctors, will homosexuals be next?
Will Scott Roeder, Eric Rudolph, James Kopp, Clayton Waagner, Michael Griffin and John Salvi start killing fellow inmates while in prison who sodomize each other? The killing spree of these people called by god should continue even while incarcerated, no?
My stand against killing sinners will not be changed and if there is any who believe that they will kill for Jesus, be advised I will most likely be outside the prison the day you are executed, setting the record straight. Paul Hill did not repent nor was he remorseful, therefore I summit he dies an UNSAVED sinner as per Matt. 5:21, 19:18; Gal. 5:20-21.
“And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village”
“Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear”
“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine”
We are given precise instruction to ‘preach the word’ and rebuke sin not kill sinners, unless of course you have outgrown the New Testament.
