Turning from one cult to another, I bring you the tale of a Christian pastor in Nigeria, beheaded for his faith.
Read about it here. Captured by Islamic radicals in Borno State, Pastor George Orjih was threatened and commanded to leave Christ and embrace Islam to save his life.
His response? Did he open a dialogue? Did he express regret for past Christian whatevernesses? Did he say that we are all seeking God, and there are many valid paths? Did he suggest a couple of couches and some candles so they could grope together? Did he, in other words, equivocate to save his life?
Pastor Orjih preached Christ to his captors.
And they beheaded him instantly.
My first thought is, What a wonderful way to go out.
I read that Pastor Orjih was working on his Master's in Theology. I'd say he graduated, with honors.
The direction of Nigeria is of great concern. Sadly, the professedly Christian is wasted on health-and-wealth "gospel" false teaching.
But Pastor Orjih didn't preach that, he preached Christ. And as a result, he is indeed having his best life right now.
