Refusing to Accuse

Stop sign

The Voice of the Martyrs received the following report about a Christian man named John who lives in a Muslim country.

One day, as John was driving down the road, two youth crashed a motorcycle into his car on purpose to make it look like John had run into them. When John got out of the car, he saw that the motorcyclist’s face was bleeding. The injured cyclist’s brother then beat John up and left him unconscious. A Christian friend of John’s drove by, saw what happened, and took John to the hospital. The police came and asked John about the “accident.” They asked John if he wanted to accuse the youth of a crime.

If John did not bring charges against the youth, they could say the accident was John’s fault, and he could go to jail. But John said he would not charge them. He said he wanted to have a forgiving attitude like Jesus. The youth and the policemen were curious about John’s behavior and began to ask him questions. Some non-Christians who heard about the incident even started going to church with John to learn more about Jesus! Praise God for their change of heart, and pray that they will decide to give their lives to Jesus.
