  3. It is a pity that preaching which is an advice on good and decent living or BEHAVIOUR ended on this tragic manner. Hmmmm, whatever you do there is need to pray that it is well received. In these trying times with hardship hammering everywhere, even the most well-meant advice jokingly delivered could get your ears bitten off.
    RIP to the dead.

  4. One of the hardest thing to do is to reach the heart of our listener with our preaching. When preaching we want to be tactful and don’t rain judgment on people and call it preaching. When carrying out that task of preaching,we want to be soft spoken because the person didn’t demand for the preaching. There are some preaching that look like accusation. Since our goal as christians is to win back souls,then it is advisable to be tactful in our bible message to others. Or we can simply offer a home bible study with them. The person will most likely accept it because it is now private. From there you can tactfully explain why she should desist from such act sighting example from the old testament of RAHAB the prostitute how she abandoned that act and was latter saved by God during the destruction of jericho. So preaching is a lot of brain work and not just opening our mouth in the public and start condemning others when we ourselves have our weaknesses we are battling with.

    • @Endure, we are not hinted as to the manner in which the preacher had approached her. That he was attacked does not mean that he was too forward with accusing or “judging” the lady. After all, St. Paul and all of the apostles groaned under persecution not because they did not know how to preach.

      I see this as the lady simply doing what the devil wanted her to do.

  6. Rip to the prophet. That lady has taking too far,i know she regret her action. May God touch her heart

  7. devil can make u do and undo after pouring him d water am sure ur eyes were clear. see what u brought upon ur self this will teach u a bigger lesson

  8. @metu. Obviously no one is lending support to the criminal act carried out by that lady. Or as if we don’t have pity on the preacher being killed. Do know that it doesn’t go down well with some people when you hit the nail on the head exposing what they are doing in the name of preaching. some will not take it lightly with you when your point of focus in the preaching is exactly that bad thing they are practising. We also don’t want to blindly expose ourselves to un predicted consequence because of the fact that the apostles were martyred or killed during their time. The primary topic or focus of preaching in the first century by the apostles was about the KINGDOM OF GOD. Even jesus christ told his disciples that which ever city they enter they should preach that the KINGDOM OF GOD is near and every body should repent of their sins. That was quite tactful on there part. So also we should likewise start from there in our preaching work as christians if our objective is to reach the heart of our listeners. By the time you start studying Gods word the bible with them,in time they will start making changes on their own without you directly pointing at what they are practising.

  9. what a pity… you poured hot water on someone who brings you good news (salvation) i really pity you mhiz because you have given Satan the chance to take control of your life… RIP TO THE SOULS OF THE FAITHFUL DEPARTED

  10. The lady is simply possessed with the devil, part of which is pushing her to prostitution and has set her for doom by killing someone ready to set her free. Men need be weary of easy virtue ladies, 98% are demonic; the spirit leads them into prostitution without being remorseful about it.

  11. My dear Endure, the a complete sermon is the one that tells a man what he does that would lead him to hell. Now, the manner in which the sermon is delivered is a different case altogether, and I maintain that since we are not told what manner in which the preacher had used, it is not wonderful to assume that the preacher was blunt. After all, the softest spoken sermons have been viciously attacked on occasions by the individuals whom they addressed. It is not always about the method of presentation; it is rather the natural resistance against the word of God that makes people attack preachers.

  12. May the soul of the deceased Rest In Perfect Peace… As for the Lady am sorry your life has to end this way.
