Judas in the church
The news of Pastor Chris raping a lady has spread round like whirled fire across the city and why some persons gossipped about it, others defended the man of God.
So many people left the church with claims that they cannot remain in a church where the pastor was a rapist. And Pastor King was unhappy about the whole occurrence. He called Pastor Chris to his office for a heart to heart discussion.
King: Pastor, I trust you completely and totally. But I wanna do this because the deacons and deaconesses have asked me to call you and ask you again.
Chris: It is alright pastor. Ask anything you want, I am ready to answer.
King: thank you pastor. I just want you to tell me everything that happened that day again. Right from the moment you left me. What happened?
Chris: pastor, you know we left each other quite late. I was tired and exhausted. I even waited that late because I was waiting for the carpenter who was to fix my door. If you can remember you will know I was calling him and he kept on saying he was coming but ended up not coming.
King: yeah I remember, and I even promised you that we will call someone else the next day. I remember well.
Chris: Thank you pastor. I went home and I entered the house and locked the door from inside. I went straight to my room then bathroom. I never knew or expected anyone to be inside my room and so I walked out with just the towel on my waist. How was I to know a naked lady was there?
When I got out, I saw her naked, standing there. I was in shock wondering how she got there, I asked her what she was doing but instead she grabbed my towel and dragged it off my waist, I was still trying to take my towel back from her when she started screaming and then before you know it the people started coming.
Pastor, I know my story is hard to believe but this is the truth and nothing but the truth.
King: But what about her clothes that were thorn on the floor beside your bed? How about the marks on her body from beatings?
Chris: pastor I do not know about the clothes and I do not know how she got any mark on her body. All I know is that someone is out there trying to tarnish my image and bring the name of the Lord down but I know the God I serve and I know He will vindicate me and give me victory in this.
King: (he breathed heavily) I believe you pastor, I know the devil is fighting and doing some pranks here. I had my suspicions first when I saw those boys and that young lady hitting on your door. Where did they come from? Because they are not members of our church, why were they in the church at that time? What was their mission? This is going to be tough. I believe this is the vision God was trying to warn me about. I believe you pastor. God will surely give us victory.
The case has been charged to court. I am going to join you and from now till the next fifteen days when the court will sit, we will be fasting and praying. God will surely give us victory.
Tears flowed from Chris’s eyes, he was thankful that Pastor King believed him. At least he has someone on his side and that was a plus. He put his head down on his hand and cried like a baby.
