Fervent, Yet Unholy Christians
It was Wednesday and Bro. Shola had gone out to meet his would-be convert, Abdul. He went into block 2 room 3 of the boys hostel, Abdul’s room to evangelize to brethren from the other religion and possible have a chat with Abdul but unlike other days they didn’t give him a listen ear. They instead made mockery of his faith.
“Why this mischievous look on your faces?” Bro. Shola asked innocently.
“Why do Christians preach what they do not practice, go and preach to your fellow brothers and sisters before coming to us.” Akin replied.
Akin was a fanatic and never liked the fact that Bro. Shola always come to their room to preach to his roommates.
Only the previous day Bro. Shola had thought to himself, just a little more and he will bring them to Christ. Why the sudden change?
Akin went ahead to show him a video that has been circulating amongst them, with tears in his eyes Bro. Shola held his Bible and walked out of the room he could not watch the video further. To him, there was no point preaching to the block 2 room 2 occupants that day, he was weak, demoralized, physically and spiritually.
As Bro. Shola reluctantly drag himself back to his room at the opposite end of the hostel, at his door step he could not hold back the tears that has been clamoring in his eyes and so he let them stream down his cheeks freely.
“Thank God.” He muttered.
He unlock the door to the room he share with seven other students. Glad that none of his mates were around to ask questions about the tears. He slumped on his bed and cried, he kept asking no one in particular.
The content of the video Akin showed him was so insulting and possibly just took him back to square one in winning them over to Christ.
What was the content of the video?
Sis. Clara, the quiet, fervent Christian in the Campus fellowship was having an illicit relationship with Akin’s friend, Mubarak and unknown to her, her lover had hidden a camera at the corner of his room to capture their illicit act. That was not all, in the heat of passion the name she was screaming was our Saviour’s name.
It wasn’t his intention to capture the scene but no one believed him when he told them he was sleeping with the righteous Sis. Clara, so he made the video to prove them wrong.
This is a true story but has been edited.
You are reading this and you are kinda-like Sis. Clara or Bro. Clara? Pretentious Christians! Holy in the morning, the devil’s advocate at night!
Why do we keep crucifying Jesus on the Calvary over and over with our sins?
Please can you kindly remind us what 2nd Timothy 2:19 says again?
