A man is claiming to be obeying Jesus Christ in the Congo while he violently abuses children. Their crime, being witches. "Pastor" Moise Thsombe says he has the gift of the Holy Spirit's discernment and gladly, for a fee of $50.00 (because all things God does cost money, right?), can exorcise demons from children to thwart the parents hardship of economic difficulty. A segment aired on Dan Harris's World News broadcast yesterday evening. The video of children's pain and torment as the man bites their flesh and drips burning wax and flame haunt me.
Jesus never abused children or blamed them. He loved them and cherished their innocence and wonder. I can't even imagine the children's pain as they grow up believing they are evil. The man snickered and laughed when the news caster asked him if this was simply a scam to take people's money.
I do not even pray for the salvation of this man. I don't care even for him to realize how wrong he is. I want justice and pain for him. I want him to pay for the unnecessary torture he is causing to young children. If God blames me for wanting him dead, then so be it. I don't know how anyone can watch what he is doing falsely in my Savior's name and wish him compassion.
