This is an unusual bit of news, but it shows the danger that American missionaries can come under. American, John Allen Chau seemed to know that what he was about to do was extremely dangerous as he set out on a kayak with Bible in hand to a remote Indian island in the Andaman Sea. The island is one of the most sealed-off parts of India, inhabited by a small, enigmatic and highly isolated tribe whose members have killed outsiders for simply stepping on their shore. Fishermen warned him not to go. But he set forth anyway and upon landing on the beach was immediately killed with bow and arrows shot by the tribe.
As per the New York Times article, Chau who is about 26 or 27 was believed to have been "trying to convert the islanders to Christianity. Right before he left in his kayak, Mr. Chau gave the fishermen a long note in case he did not come back. In it, police officials said, he had written that Jesus had bestowed him with the strength to go to the most forbidden places on Earth."
I share the story as just another example of how certain Christians have become so immersed in their religious beliefs that they feel they are doing God's work and are infallible. But Chau is not alone as many on this thread have already noted. As per this article by Amy Sullivan in Politico,
Millions of Americans Believe God Made Trump President
“Millions of Americans,” declared Jeffress at a July 2017 event his First Baptist Church of Dallas sponsored in Washington, D.C., “believe the election of President Trump represented God giving us another chance—perhaps our last chance to truly make America great again.”
