The story is told of a college professor who visited the Fiji Islands. Being agnostic, he critically remarked to an elderly chief, "You’re a great leader, but it’s a pity you’ve been taken in by those foreign missionaries. They only want to get rich through you.

"No one believes the Bible anymore. People are tired of the threadbare story of Christ’s dying on a cross for the sins of mankind. They know better now. I’m sorry you’ve been so foolish as to accept their story."

The old chief’s eyes flashed as he answered. "See that great rock over there? On it we smashed the heads of our victims. Notice the furnace next to it? In that oven we formerly roasted the bodies of our enemies. If it hadn’t been for those good missionaries and the love of Jesus that changed us from cannibals into Christians, you’d never leave this place alive

You’d better thank the Lord for the Gospel. Otherwise, we’d already be feasting on you. If it weren’t for the Bible, you’d now be our supper"
