Josh Alexander, a 16-year-old follower of Christ, wasn’t at a bar when he was arrested on Wednesday: He was handing out Bibles at a protest in Canada.
But despite his apparent peaceful protest against aggressive counter-demonstrators, Alexander was the one who ended up in handcuffs.
“Today I was handcuffed and put in a paddy wagon for offering students bibles on a public sidewalk in Calgary,” Alexander wrote.
He continued, “I was released and told if I returned I would be arrested and charged. I continued handing out bibles. For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ.”

Pro-trans people flocked to the scene as well, however.
At some point, a fight broke out between a number of protesters and counter-protesters in a crowd of about 80, the Calgary Herald reported.
Alexander wrote in a tweet that the police said his views were too “inflammatory” to express near the school.
His tweet also featured a clip of a woman aggressively shoving him.
If his name sounds familiar, that’s because it is.
Alexander was arrested in February for his biblical-based views.
According to New York Post, he was suspended from his Catholic high school for rejecting transgender bathrooms and saying there are only two sexes.
After trying to attend school despite his suspension, he was arrested.
What a different country America would be if there were more Josh Alexanders defending the faith. Source
Brothers and sisters in Christ, this is a snapshot of what we as believers in Jesus Christ will be facing every day. More and more of us will be incarcerated and worse. I wish that many American Christians would stop thinking that we are somehow above persecution – WE ARE NOT. It just hasn’t begun yet, but as you can see in Josh’s story, it’s getting closer to us. Soon it will be upon us.
We should be ready to defend our faith and the Word of God. Jesus said this:
“Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come” (Matthew 24:9-14).
COME LORD JESUS!!
