Muslim convert to Christianity sues Tulsa church
A Muslim convert to Christianity is suing First Presbyterian Church and its pastor, the Rev. James D. Miller, alleging that church leaders published an announcement of his baptism on the Internet after assuring him they would not do so.

The Tulsa County resident, identified only as John Doe in court papers for his own safety, alleges that because the news of his conversion appeared on the Internet, he was kidnapped on a trip to his native Syria by radical Muslims seeking to enforce Shariah law.

According to the filing in Tulsa District Court, he was bound, beaten and tortured for several days, and was forced to spend 18 hours a day in a 55-gallon electrified drum. He also was stabbed several times, shot, and threatened with beheading. ...

This seems like a set up to me.
Sham conversion, sham capture and escape to sue a Christian church. "Better call Saul".

Hello,

This is just another glaring example of our times.

Let this be a WARNING and a CALL to all who truly. Pursue/Follow Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior.

WARNING: this is a result of a weak and ineffectual church. I/We have spent to much time on our selfs and not enough time with Christ and the Father on our knees. Thus the current downward spiral were in!

CALL: Let's humble ourselves before our God and Savior,
REPENT, REPENT, REPENT every one of us!
Cry out to God for Holy REVIVAL!

Is the life were living, worth Christ dieing for?

puleeeze, the church should be writing to their congressmen asking why we are paying those jihadists.... hey, I say, if evangelicals can't man up and deal with this, then let the people who get injured sue the church, I mean at this point, why not? bonhoefer spoke of being silent about evil is evil.

I was wondering how he was recognized while traveling and how anyone would have even known who he was but it looks like his paternal uncle may have put the word out.
I'm no attorney, but unless the church was under some sort of contractual agreement, I don't think he has a case. Somebody slipped up, that's for sure, and they should have shown more concern by making certain his named stayed off the internet considering the ramifications.
One thing that has me curious is that his name wasn plastered and exposed on sites around the world, but rather, his name appeared on a lone, church website under baptisms. Why would anyone he knows from back home ever even go to that specific site/page, or even be aware of it?
