 Taliban cuts throat of cleric convert



A spokesman for Afghanistan’s Taliban guerrillas told Reuters that group members had slit the throat of Muslim cleric Maulawi Assadullah on Wednesday, June 30, because he was “propagating Christianity” in the remote Awdand district of Ghazni province.
Taliban spokesman Abdul Latif Hakimi said members of group “dragged out Maulawi Assadullah and slit his throat with a knife” after learning that he had embraced Christianity. He added that there was “enough evidence and local accounts to prove that he was involved in the conversions of Muslims to Christianity.”
Hakimi also warned that any foreign aid workers found to be involved in spreading Christianity in Afghanistan would face a similar fate. The Taliban has killed at least 33 foreign aid workers since the beginning of last year. The number of Afghan Christians killed by the Taliban is not known.

Consider how the Apostles responded (prayed and obeyed) to evil threats as recorded in Acts 4.

8Then they [Sanhedrin] called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. 19But [u]Peter and John[/u] replied, "[b]Judge for yourselves whether it is right in [u]God's sight to [i]obey you rather than God[/i][/u]. 20For we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard[/b]."
21After further threats they let them go. They could not decide how to punish them, because all the people were praising God for what had happened. 22For the man who was miraculously healed was over forty years old.

23On their release, Peter and John went back to their own people and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said to them. 24When they heard this, they raised their voices together in [b]prayer[/b] to God. "[b]Sovereign Lord[/b]," they said, "you made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and everything in them. 25You spoke by the Holy Spirit through the mouth of your servant, our father David:
" 'Why do the nations rage
and the peoples plot in vain?
26The kings of the earth take their stand
and the rulers gather together
against the Lord
and against his Anointed One. ' 27Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed. 28They did what your power and will had decided beforehand should happen. 29[b]Now, Lord, [u]consider their threats[/u] and enable your servants to speak your word with [u]great boldness[/u][/b]. 30Stretch out your hand to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus."
31After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. [b]And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly[/b].
Acts 4:8-31 (NIV)
