The offensive post by McWayne below
His post read,
“Tonight we had the greatest of pleasure to pray with a family that gave their heart to the Lord.
They packed boxes of “stuff” they use to worship and asked us to dispose of it. We dedicated the Home in Jesus Name.
After 47 years the Man of the home asked me to cut of the strings he had tied around his wrist cos he chose to follow Jesus for the rest of his life. We acted upon their confession and their submission to the Word of God.
He later emptied his wallet where he held onto souvenirs which he taught gave him protection but learnt that Jesus gives his Angels charge over us. We give all Glory to Jesus.”Sam McWayne, Pastor
