Judas in the church
”Where is he? That scoundrel, that small boy that calls himself pastor, that rat that was born in my pres£nce, where is he?” Douglas stormed the office pushing books and everything away from him, even the Bible on the table. When Pastor Chris heard and saw him coming, he stood and waited for him.
Douglas: So you are here, you are here and you are keeping your father quiet while I was shouting abi. You this stupid small boy. Let me tell you, you and I are not mates, in case you don’t know. It is your father and I that are mates and so don’t think because pastor King saw that you were dying of hunger and had pity on you and decided to choose you as his as-sistant don’t think that it has become a yardstick for you to forget your s£niors.
Pastor Chris: with all due respect sir, Pastor King didn’t chose me, God did.
Douglas: Shut up there! Does God know you? I am asking you, does God know you? God did not see the deacons and deaconesses of this church it is you he saw abi. because you are the most righteous and the most holy one amongst us all abi? Let me tell you, if you feel because you are next to Pastor King you and I have become mates you lie. You hear me? Pastor King is not here and won’t be here for a long time, it is either you respect yourself and humble yourself before your elders or you face war.
Chris: Pastor Douglas, what is all this? This is a church for crying out loud. We are servants, we are called to serve the lord, you and I are not in competition over anything. Why are you acting as if we are enemies. We’ve never quarreled before and I have never disrespected you. Why are you now sounding as if I am your enemy?
Douglas: oh you don’t know? So you think you are my friend? Let me spill it out to you today. We are enemies o, we are not friends, we can never be friends. You have the effrontery to call Pastor King and report me to him ba? (He laughed wickedly) you don’t know what you did o. You don’t know what you just did.
Pastor Chris: I didn’t report you per say. I’m sorry if you feel that way. I just nee-ded him to talk to you so that we can work together to build the church of God. We are supposed to be helping each other build the church not fighting.
Douglas: we will fight o, we will fight, I will fight you with everything I have. Work with who? You this small boy that was born yesterday, I should work with you? What do you know that I want to work with you? You didn’t report me yet you told him how I changed the [email protected]£ of a church program, you told him how I sold oil in the church. Let me even ask you, is it your oil? Is it your money? What is even your concern in the matter? Well! I have this to say to you, as you say I will not rest in this church you too will not rest. Mind your business and leave me alone. Pastor your way and let me pastor my way.
Chris: I can’t do that sir, we were called to serve together in the abs£nce of our pastor. Besides the affairs of the church is my affairs, because I want the growth of the church and not the downfall.
Douglas: so it is me that want to bring down the church abi?
Chris : I didn’t say that na
Douglas: Don’t worry, don’t worry o. But always remember that we are two parallel lines. We can never meet. And one last advice for you boy. ”When you want to eat with the devil, use a very long spoon, a long one o”
Chris: And what do you mean by that sir?
Douglas: exactly what you un-derstand it to be. ru-bbish!
He storms out of the office with Pastor Chris staring at him.
