Letter From Imprisoned Abortionist James Pendergraft, 8/13/2001

By Editorial Staff
Published August 13, 2001

By Patte Smith

I stood on the sidewalk at 1103 Lucerne Terrace praying against the opening of the first late term in central Florida in 1996. James Scott Pendergraft had informed the city that he wanted to perform abortions through all three trimesters. When the Lord allowed Orlando Women’s Center to open in 1996, I sensed that He wanted me to stay to reach out to the aborting moms, companions, clinic workers and yes, even the abortionists. I had already been ministering outside all of the other murder mills in Orlando for three years.

A few years later as a result of a frivolous lawsuit he filed against the city of Ocala, Pendergraft was found guilty of conspiracy to commit extortion, lying under oath and mail fraud and sent to a federal penitentiary. I wrote to ask the abortionist to allow me to visit him. I wanted to share the gospel with the man.

Here is what the serial baby-killer wrote in response to my letter to him:

James S. Pendergraft
Reg # 42979-018

Dear Patte,

God says to love thy neighbors as thyself and to love all people including your enemies. That in order to love people you must not have hatred. I go to sleep every night with love and peace in my heart. I hate no one. I look forward to getting out soon and continuing my mission of helping women in one of the most difficult times in their lives. No one will ever change that. I am more determined than ever to pursue my mission.

I see you more than enough when I pass you on the sidewalk of Orlando Women’s Center. If you would like to donate to my legal fees please talk with our security personnel. God bless you and take care.

Sincerely,
Dr Pendergraft

Perhaps this will help people to understand why I abhor the wishy-washy Christendom which makes everyone, including abortionists and aborting and post-abortive women, feels as if God loves them just the way they are … unrepentant, with no fear of God in their eyes. This is the devil’s business.

Sin is a devil dressed as an angel. ~ RC Sproul

Let niceties and relativism and humanism be flung to the dogs. Let churchianity and comfort in sin be confessed and forsaken. Silence kills babies. Abortion is the devil’s business and the church is complicit by her silence and her tolerance. We should be ashamed and repent.

… as for murderers … their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. ~ Revelation 21:8

Your comments are welcome!

I couldn’t have said it better myself. We waste precious energy thinking it is in our power to “save” these aborters; that’s God’s job. Our job is to warn them in no uncertain terms that they will reap as they have sown. Our job is to “rescue those [unjustly] sent to slaughter,” even when that means placing ourselves and other complicit parties at risk.

Is this man a type of serial killer that needs absolute power over babies to get a ‘high?’ His habit of shoving women out of the door with a tiny corpse inside belies his statement that he wants to help them.

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - A Christian Manifesto (DVD)

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!

Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.

Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.

The Four Keys to the Millennium (Book)

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology

By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.

All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?

These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?

Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?

Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?

These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.

The Abortion Matrix: Defeating Child Sacrifice and the Culture of Death (DVD)

Download the free Study Guide!

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?

This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.

Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.

The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?

As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).

Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.
