A tehsildar - a woman in her thirties - was set on fire in her office in Telangana’s Abdullapurmet in Telangana - on 4 Nov 2019.
A crime I condemn. But I also learnt a spiritual lesson I won’t forget. Initially folks around wanted to report to the tehsildar about a burning person outside her office not realising the burning person was the tehsildar herself. Reminded me of the Scripture that we can be disqualified from the prize - land in hell ineffect - after having preached to others (perhaps about hell) (I Cor 9:24-27). So I must beat my body and make it my slave as Paul says here - that is bring into action Holy Spirit empowered holiness day in and day out till the final day.
