CONCORD (WBTV) - A North Carolina man who describes himself as the 'Christian counterpart to Osama bin Laden' will plead guilty to federal charges after he posted instructions on Facebook about how to make bombs for attacking abortion clinics.

Justin Carl Moose, 26, will plead guilty to distributing information on making and using explosives, according to documents filed in federal court in Greensboro.

Moose was arrested in September and accused of providing information on how to make a bomb to a person he believed was planning to bomb a women's health clinic in North Carolina.

Moose used Facebook to advocate violence against women's healthcare clinics, according to the criminal complaint, specifically locations where abortions are performed and the health care professionals employed at these facilities.

Court documents say Moose posted links and instructions on making bombs to his Facebook page.

Under one of his pictures on Facebook, Moose describes himself as "whatever you may think about me, you're probably right. Extremist, Radical, Fundamentalist...? Yep! Terrorists...? Well.... I prefer the term 'freedom Fighter'. 'End abortion by any means necessary and at any cost'. 'Save a live, Shoot an abortionist.'"

During a recorded conversation, Moose referred to himself as the "Christian counterpart of Osama Bin Laden."

According to the complaint, Moose is a part of a group called the Army of God, which is considered a Christian terrorist anti-abortion organization that sanctions the use of force to combat abortion.

A sentencing date has not yet been scheduled. Moose faces up to 20 years in prison and a maximum fine of $250,000.
