Meet Juda Author, Ex-Armed Robber Turned Pastor Was Sentenced To Die By Hanging by CastedDude: 8:07pm On Oct 14, 2018
A former notorious armed robber has changed his bad ways and become a pastor after escaping death execution in prison despite being condemned to die.

A colleague (Apata Emmanuel) who shared a story of the ex-convict identified as pastor Juda Author, revealed that he (Juda Author) spent many years in prison and saw many executions after being sentenced to die by hanging. 

It was revealed that on the day of the Juda's execution, he was called into the room to be hanged but something miraculous happened and the execution didn't take place again. He was taken back to his cell. 

According to Emmanuel, his friend later decided to change his ways and turn a new leaf in the prison after escaping the execution. 

He was later released through the help of Amnesty International after spending over 20 years in jail. 

Now, not only is the ex-convict a pastor, but he's also a motivational speaker who goes around sharing his life story. He has also written a book titled 'I Refuse To Die'.

I believe in God.

I also do believe that God can touch anybody's life anywhere,be that place a prison, beer joint, hotel for prostitutes,school or even your place of work.

There is no particular place laid out for repentance.

That said. He should continue in the vineyard of the lord and not be tempted to go back to worldly things.

Paul Adefarasin has repeatedly said he was a crackhead(drug addict) before he found Christ.

Let us stop Judging people from their past.

I doubt how honest his repentance is.
That was apparently a ploy to win sympathy....luckily it worked.

Nigerian prisons do not have correctional capabilities. They only make you hardened, worse-off and irredeemable. So forgive me if I tell you this man is not a born-again pastor.

Ask yourself,
Was he celibate in the 20years of his incarceration?
He most definitely either mastubrated, engaged in gay-sex or had a warden fix him up with some female gig.

It's just creative of him to use his wealth of prison trickery to become a pastor instead of being a regular fraudster.

Shame on our attachment to religious sentiments.
Because today; a frigging convicted armed robber walks free still robbing unabatedly.
Only this time, he does it with a bible and not a gun.
And the only reason he is free, is because he pretended to be a saint.

You said his being saved was coincidentally miraculous. Now he has written 'I Refuse To Die' as if his being saved was as a result of exercising a personal faith that says "I refuse to die' which places him in a position to write a book to teach such radical faith to others. Believe it or not, this is PR gimmick. But don't expect people who are as gullible as they are faithless, to agree with me oh!

I am really disappointed by your biased write up. Whether he did all these things you are accusing him off does now matter, what matters is whether he's doing them now. Everyone has a past and he changed his to make himself useful to the society yet you are still criticising him. I wonder how some humans think. the pastor title is because he moves around preaching to people not to end up in jail. So this is now a bad thing. I am ashamed of u.

Keep doubting his repentance as if your dead opinion matters and keep exposing all the things you did during your time in prison.
