Quote# 125471

A "huge warrior angel" protect a group of Christians from Muslim extremists who entered their place of worship shouting "Allahu Akbar," determined to kill them.

The Christians, all converts from Islam, were worshiping at a church in Central Africa when a mob of Muslims, angered by the recent evangelistic efforts of the believers, stormed the church, according to a report from Bibles for Mideast, an underground Christian ministry that distributes Bibles and conducts evangelism in Asia, South Africa and the Middle East.

The mob, brandishing swords and iron bars, shouted "Allahu Akbar" - "Allah is Great" - while destroying the church and ripping off the church roof. Then, they turned to the Christians, determined to kill them for their faith. One man stabbed the pastor's neck with a large sword.

Suddenly, Pastor Musthafa, the leader of the church, felt an invisible person - who he later identified as a "huge warrior angel" - pull him away from the blade.

The attacker, unable to regain his composure or aim, ended up injuring himself with his own sword. Furious, the attackers began beating believers.

Amid the chaos, heavy rain and blustery winds unexpectedly formed with thunder and lightning, swirling around the church and surrounding area. Massive drops of rain fell on the attackers like stones, throwing them into disarray.

Miraculously, the believers stayed dry and protected from the downpour - and suddenly, everyone then became aware of a large cloud overshadowing the church, shielding believers from the rain. The Christians then saw the Lord Jesus in the cloud, and fell to their knees before Him. Terrified, the Muslim extremists fled, fighting to run through the hailstorm.

Heard the same story in a Jack Chick tract from 15 years ago.

I liked the version with the black ginger leprechaun better.

Well, I can safely file that under "shit that never happened." (At least they didn't claim the attackers were killed by lightning bolts.)

Oddly enough, I'm actually more irritated by that nonsense about dry Christians and wet Muslims than I am about any other part of this story:

"That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust." -- Matthew 5:45

And then the director yelled "CUT!" and eveybody went to lunch while the lighting crew set up the sound stage for close-ups.

It all sounds believable except the cloud protecting somebody from the rain.

"The Christians then saw the Lord Jesus in the cloud, and fell to their knees before Him."

And I'll bet the "Lord Jesus" looked exactly like the Christians expected him to look: blond, blue-eyed skinny dude in a white robe.

@ Philbert McAdamia:

LOL. Among all the ridiculous claims in that article, that one really is the worst in my humble opinion. The rest of it is dumb, but the idea of a cloud that protected the Christians - and only the Christians - from rain is the worst.

Were all the Christians just huddled together, cheek to cheek, whilst their attackers remained at the periphery to be rained on - or did little clouds follow all the Christians around, individually, while dodging Muslims? Fucking...inquiring minds need to know!

And these magic clouds that are somehow water-proof (because why the fuck not?), are made of...what? (My guess is bullshit, but I would love to hear what the claimants think.)

It's just rain! Are they an angry mob, or the grasshoppers from A Bug's Life?

I'll take "Shit that Never Happened" for $500 Alex.

If you translate Akbar, then you ought to translate Allah, too. It's "God is Great", or stick with "Allahu Akbar" (most people know what that means anyway).

And everyone pulled out their mobile phones and took pictures of this, of course?
No? Why not?

3/20/2017 1:06:22 AM



Allah means god. You should at least know that for your story

Put the video on you tube.

Also where was this angel when ISIS was blowing up churches in Iraq?

That's pretty heartwarming. Things like that resore my faith in humanity, and religion in general.

The rain it raineth on the just
And also on the unjust fella;
But chiefly on the just, because
The unjust hath the just’s umbrella.
