Man Spotted Burning The Bible, Says There Is No Power In It As Christians Claim by Made4naijalove: 7:50am On Nov 13
An unidentified man was spotted in a viral video burning the Bible which according to him has no power like Christians claim.

The Ghanaian man who had a conversation with his friends while engaging in the act, was heard saying he is a black man and has nothing to be afraid of.

He emphasized that he respects and fears popular Ghanaian god ‘Antoa’ than the Bible.

Lol!

This is the height of ignorance!

And what God meant when He said:

"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:" {Hosea 4:6 (KJV)}

The power is not in the letters, but in the knowledge of the Word of God.

Lord have mercy on this man.

the Bible may be powerless, but there is no point burning it.

MISHIGAS!

What is his point?

Is there any other book that cannot be ripped apart and burnt, because It "HAS POWER IN IT?"

Did somebody tell him that The Bible has such Power?

I was just testifying to my boss this morning, about an American Sailor named KEN CANTRELL, who served on an Aircraft Carrier: THE LAKE CHAMPLAIN, in 1953.

People came to witness to the servicemen, and distributed booklets, including BECAUSE OF YOUR UNBELIEF, by Franklin Hall.

He had received the book, but did not want to read it, and threw it away.

Someone brought it back to him, because his name was on the cover.

He knew how to fix that- he tore the cover off, and threw the book in a dustbin.

A senior officer brought it back to him, saying: "Is this not your book?"

(He marvelled that a senior officer should have found his book in a dustbin!)

Resignedly, he decided that he might as well read the book, then- and found that the author was teaching people how to go on fasts of all lengths up to forty days. He decided to try a twenty-one day Fast, for the first time in his life.

On the tenth day, he had an experience consistent with Baptism with The Holy Ghost, feeling a "Healing Heat" envelope his body.

On the sixteen day of his Fast- the 6th August, 1953, the Watch Officer reprimanded him for having his light on after lights-out.

He protested that he had no light on, so the officer came over to see, and found that the light was coming from his body!

He was in the catapult room the next morning, and there was a landing mishap, just as he was joined by fifteen fellow crewmen.

Aviation Gasoline poured into the Catapult Room, and it went up in flames.

The door was sealed, and required a tool called a "Dog-Wrench" to open it.

There was no time for anybody to get out.

The other fifteen crewmen died immediately.

Ken Cantrell, however, could not even feel the flames.

He tried to save some of them, but they just fell apart in his arms.

Alone in the inferno for thirty minutes, he wandered around, not knowing what to do.

A Voice spoke to him, telling him not to be afraid, but just leave the chamber.

He picked up the red-hot Dog-Wrench, opened the door, and stepped out- the sole survivor.

Everyone was surprised to see him emerge alive.

He had to go back and carry our all of the fifteen bodies- they were like roast meat.

When the room had cooled somewhat, he went back to look at something- another crewman followed him down the corridor, but had to turn back, because his shoes began to burn. Ken Cantrell's clothes were completely unharmed- and he did not even smell of smoke.

He found that the booklet had fallen from his pocket during the excitement- yet, it had survived the inferno, intact!

. MATTHEW 17:14-21.

14. And when they were come to the Multitude,
there came to him a certain man,
kneeling down to him,
and saying,

15. "Lord, have mercy on my son:
for he is lunatick, and sore vexed:
for ofttimes he falleth into the Fire,
and oft into the Water.
16. And I brought him to thy Disciples,
and they could not cure him."

17. Then Jesus answered and Said,

"O Faithless and perverse Generation,
how long shall I be with you?
how long shall I suffer you?
Bring him hither to me. ”

18. And Jesus rebuked the Devil;
and he departed out of him:
and the child was cured from that very Hour.
19. Then came the Disciples to Jesus apart,
and said,

"Why could not we cast him out?"

20. And Jesus Said unto them,

"Because of your Unbelief:
for verily I Say unto you,

'IF YE HAVE FAITH
AS A GRAIN OF MUSTARD SEED,
YE SHALL SAY UNTO THIS MOUNTAIN,
"REMOVE HENCE TO YONDER PLACE;"
AND IT SHALL REMOVE;
AND NOTHING SHALL BE
IMPOSSIBLE UNTO YOU.'


21. "Howbeit this kind goeth not out
but by Prayer and Fasting."

THEREFORE, IT IS NOT THE BOOKS THAT HAVE POWER, BUT THE APPLICATION OF WHAT THE BOOKS SAY, THAT HAS POWER.

[See also: THE BODY-FELT SALVATION, by Franklin Hall.]

Ken Cantrell went on to become a Pastor, and traveled across America, testifying in FRANKLIN HALL DELIVERANCE Ministry Churches.

SNOPES.COM says that the US NAVY denies that this incident ever took place.

That's really unfortunate.
Something about the name "Jesus"...that incites such a reaction of hatred and brutality.
I figured he was either in "ignorance" or "rebellion".
He's not the first to do that nor will be the last.
I think God is moreso saddened than anything, because He knows that in that Book is life, freedom, and peace..if the man would just be humbled enough to search.
God knows the ending, while we do not yet.
Hopefully, the man will be one of the miracles that will be seen in the Kingdom one day.
