8 cut off Manhood and testicles for 'Kingdom of God'
An online journal, the World-science.net has reported a bizarre trend of body mutilations being inflicted by some people upon themselves, in order to make the Kingdom of Heaven as instructed in the Gospel of Mathew.
Quoting medical researchers at the St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Centre in Phoenix, Arizona, in the United States, world-science.net reported overall 23 cases of people who have cut off their penises or hands or removed their eyes, because they felt they had caused them some sins. Three of these lot who self-severed their penises believed their action would make them live a sinless life and as transformed eunuchs, make them live in line with the injunction in Mathew 19:12. Four others also cut off their testicles, believing same sentiments.
The Biblical verse reads as follows:
“For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb; and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men; and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it let him receive it.”
Worldscience.net reported that these incidents of self-mutilation and penis cutting happen on average of one every three years
Na waoh, This is very serious matter. Is this extreme or what?
