A self-proclaimed pastor in Kenya has reportedly sought police protection after receiving information that his followers were planning to crucify him on Good Friday.
According to local reports, the man raised the alarm, stating that members of his community in Bungoma had vowed to crucify him during this year’s Easter celebrations, just like the son of God.
The man, who claims to be Jesus Christ, reportedly told police that he overheard residents of Bungoma discussing his crucifixion and wants protection as a result.
Members of the community had assured him that if he was truly the messiah, he would resurrect on the third day and go to heaven after the crucifixion, and therefore he had nothing to worry about.
The pastor’s claims have caused a stir in the local community, with some questioning his mental state and others expressing concern for his safety. It is unclear what action the police will take in response to his request for protection.
The idea of a self-proclaimed messiah being threatened with crucifixion is a disturbing one, and it raises questions about the role of religion and belief in contemporary society. While it is not uncommon for individuals to claim to be Jesus or other religious figures, the idea that they would be persecuted by their own followers is unusual.
There are several possible explanations for the pastor’s claims. One is that he is mentally ill and is suffering from delusions of grandeur.
Another possibility is that he is a charismatic leader who has attracted a devoted following, but who is now facing resistance from those who question his authority.
It is unclear whether the pastor’s claims are genuine or whether he is simply seeking attention. Regardless, the fact that he feels the need to seek police protection is a sign that something is wrong.
