On Lagos-Ibadan express road,
when a Pastor met a team
of
policemen who, quite
naturally,
wanted 'something' from him.
Since he was not prepared
to
play their games, they
asked for his papers and
having combed through everything without
any
offence with which to nail
the
'stubborn' pastor, they now
asked him to open the bonnet of
his car. A careful scrutiny
of the engine
number against what was
on
paper revealed that letter 'U'
was written in such a way
that
it could be mistaken for
letter
'V'. That was all the officer-in- charge needed
to shout "stolen
vehicle!" Sensing trouble,
even when he
knew he committed no
offence, the pastor called the OC to
say
he was a priest to which
the
officer replied :"Please,
leave that pastor thing...in any
case, if you
are indeed a pastor, then
you
must have a Bible in your
car, bring it." The Pastor did as
was
commanded after which the
officer now ordered:
"Please
read Matthew 5:25-26 to me".
The incredulous Pastor
opened
to the recommended
passage and read:
"Settle matters quickly with your
adversary who is taking
you to
court. Do it while you are
still
with him on the way, or he may
hand you over to a judge,
and the judge may hand
you over to
the officer, and you may be
thrown into prison. I tell you the
truth; you will not get out
until
you have paid the last
penny." The man of God
quietly made an "offering" of "just" N100 to
his
newly found "preacher".
"End of service go in peace
and
argue no more", said the OC.
