Reformed. Christianity. Evangelism. Modern Culture.
This is simply as ludicrous as it sounds but…
A Kenyan lawyer has filed a petition with the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague, suggesting that the trial and crucifixion of Jesus Christ was unlawful, and The State of Israel among others should be held responsible, Kenyan news outlet the Nairobian reported on Friday.
Dola Indidis, a lawyer and former spokesman of the Kenyan Judiciary is reportedly attempting to sue Tiberius (Emperor of Rome 42 BC-37AD), Pontius Pilate, a selection of Jewish elders, King Herod, the Republic of Italy and the State of Israel.
“Evidence today is on record in the bible, and you cannot discredit the bible,” Indidis told Kenyan Citizen News.
Yes, those he suggests should have been convicted during the original trial have not been alive for more than 2000 years, however Indidis insists that the government for whom they acted can and should still be held responsible.

When we lose track of the gospel and get caught up in aberrant financial and prosperity schemes its not long before the name of the Lord gets dragged in the mud. The focus of every evangelistic work should always remain the gospel. [pullquote]And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you’ Matt 7:23[/pullquote]
