Christian Cleric with $60 Million Bounty in Vancouver

Screen shot 2010-08-18 at 1.40.00 PM  You may remember that saying, if you're a Christian would there be enough evidence to convict you of being one?  Sobering question.  Even more sobering, some of us go for days, weeks and even years without sharing our relationship with Christ, and/or even admitting that we are a Christian.

This story that I wanted to share today, is tied back to Father Zakaria Botros, who is a controversial Christian cleric, and who is also referred to as Islam's "public enemy number one" because he criticizes Islam and shares the gospel on television with up to 60 million viewers.

It is reported that when Father Botros preaches, Muslims come to Christ Jesus.  What a great testimony!

This also explains why there is such a huge bounty on his head.  Please keep Father Botros in your prayers as he boldly proclaims the good news of Christ Jesus all over the world.  Pray for his protection, and pray for many more to come to faith in Christ.

The Province has two articles on him, I highly recommend reading.  First, Anti-Islam Cleric with $60m Bounty in Langley and Islam's 'public enemy No.1' in Langley to Share His Gospel

I don't know about you, but I would love to hear this guy preach.  What do you think?  Leave a comment.

I always prayed for Father Zakaria Butros and may the Lord almighty protect him.

I have been following Father Butros now for about six months since I first heard of him.
First I will start by saying: Shame on all the Christians of the Middle East, they are cowards and hardly know Christ, Except for the Egyptian Coptic Christians. These are the backbone of Christianity where Islam thrives... Father Butros is "Paul" of the modern day Christianity. Christians in the Middle East live in fear, and in shame... Not even one Church invites muslims to Christ! Why? They fear persecution... Didn't Christ Himself told us that we will be persecuted, tortured and killed in His Name? The thing is, Middle East Christians are dying and slowly vanishing cowardly. Since this is happening anyway, why don't they preach to muslims, (Christ enemy number one), at least if they are persecuted and killed, they don't die in vain, they will have spread the word of Christ. I would like to see every Church inviting the muslim community to come to Church and learn about Christ from Christ perspective Himself, and not from the Book of Terror (I mean the Kor'an). Actually, I have a lot to say about this subject, but for now, I will be happy to make a point.
The Lord is protecting and will protect Father Butros until his mission is accomplished, just as He did with Paul, and by the way "Butros" is "Peter" in Arabic. Father Butros is always in our prayers.
Love in Christ,
Abu Musa
