This man, Habila Adamu, was shot in his head after he refused to deny Christ by Boko Haram militants in Nigeria. But he survived and he shared his experience with Foreign Christain website, iPostChristainPost.com
Boko Haram is an Islamic jihadist militant organization based in the northeast Nigeria. The group came to Adamu because he is a Christian.
“They wanted me to deny Jesus. They want to ‘Islamitize’ Nigeria. That is why they are targeting Christians,” he said in a CBN video posted on YouTube.
“If you agree to deny your faith you will be safe. If you don’t agree to do it, they will kill you,” he added. And that is how he answered why he chose to stand his ground and refused to deny Christ.
“What can separate us from the love of Christ? Is it hardship? Is it persecution? Is it sword? No. Nothing can separate us from the love of Christ,” he said.
“Christ did something for me and all the people in the world. We are sinners! We are condemned criminals! We are supposed to die! But He took all these burdens! He paid for our debts! He died for us! Why can I not submit to Jesus? That is what I did. I stood for him!”
