Pastor Demands His Donated Kidney Back from Atheist | Says He Either Returns It Or Join Christianity & Keep It
Call it kindness with restriction and you will not be far from right at all. The action of a Californian-based Presbyterian pastor has shocked the world after demanding his kidney which he donated to a sick person who was once a member of his congregation back.
The pastor, whose name was given as Evangelist Bismark O’Neil is the head pastor of Bel Air Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles, California.
Earlier this year, a member of his church – DeGraft Johnson was diagnosed of Pyelonephritis, a potentially serious kidney infection that can spread to the blood, causing severe illness.
Doctors treating Mr. Johnson suggested kidney transplant as the only cure of the deadly sickness. This, according to Evangelist O’Neil, donated one of his kidneys to save the dying member of his church.
After the successful kidney transplant, Mr. Johnson stopped attending the church, an action that Evangelist O’Neil describes as provoking.
Per his narration, Mr. Johnson not only stopped attending church but tried persuading a cross-section of the congregation to quit attending the church as well.
What annoys Evangelist O’Neil most is the fact that his former church member who is now a hard-core atheist is functioning on his donated kidney. Instead of using the gift of life to praise his maker, the Christian-turned-Atheist is rather discrediting the existence of the Almighty.
According to Evangelist O’Neil, he does not like the current lifestyle of Mr Johnson. He believes he (Evangelist O’Neil) could end up in hell if Mr Johnson does not change his ways.
“So far as my kidney is in him, I am part of him now. Whatever he does affect me as well. God will not accept my body in heaven while my kidney ends up in hell,” he angrily stated.
Asked what he intends doing, Evangelist O’Neil said he has given Mr. Johnson 2 weeks ultimatum to return his kidney back to him.
Nonetheless, “he can keep the kidney if only he gives his life to Christ again and become part of the Christian brotherhood,” Evangelist O’Neil retorted.
If not brutal evangelism, what should this kind of act be called?
