Fired Up Missionary

Missionaries are known for their zeal and energy and desire to reach the lost for Christ. But there are exceptions to every rule. A 70-year old missionary has been accused of burning down one of the churches that supported him.

Mobley [the pastor of the burned church] says he’s disappointed to hear that his friend of seven years is charged with burning down his church. He says he hasn’t talked to Wilkins about the indictment. He’s waiting for an arrest.

Disappointed eh? I’ll say. It would be interesting to know his motive. I’ll bet their missionary conferences will never be the same after this. Perhaps he was trying to recreate the tongues of fire for this Pentecostal church. Our God is a consuming fire, maybe it was an illustration gone awry. Who knows.
