Dear Boko Haram . . .

Those who sacrifice others for themselves will never understand those who sacrifice themselves for others, because they live in different worlds.

Praveen Kumar said...

What a message to the stubborn followers of false prophet - this is what Christ taught us! Nevertheless HE IS ABLE to redeem them without you and sam exchanging your selves...

Royal Son said...

David and Sam -
Huge Respect.

Glory to God for your faith.

Jeyasingh Thomas said...

God bless you brother.

"I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more

@ David & Sam

Love you guys.

But no, brothers this is not a deal that you have to undertake, this is not your cross But that which will be throughly handled by our Saviour Lord Jesus Christ.

Our job is to make it known that this IS satan's work!

Sorry, brothers we dont have to deal with satan!

The Mercedarians (http://orderofmercy.org/index.html) were founded in the 13th Century to redeem Christian captives of Muslims. But, they are priests and monks. You have a wife and children to take care of. And, the world needs your ministry. Besides, jihadists would kill you for the "glory" and the girls would not be returned anyway. Such is the "honor" of those whose god is named "the great deceiver."

cheryl said...

I'm deeply moved. Praying for the safe return of the girls with no more innocent bloodshed.

Cogitarus said...

If CAIR, Ibrahim Hooper or "moderate" Muslims would make this same offer I would have a change of heart and deeply respect them. Instead they do everything they can to deflect blame and condemnation of these killers while banging the Islamophobe drum. They find a way every single time to blame the victims and those shining the light of truth on the evil of Islam. Islam even while it is committing murder claims it is the victim. #Muhammadishate, #Jesusislove

You cannot deal with the criminally insane.

Mari Kaimo said...

I am Spartacus! I am David Wood! I am Sam Shamoun!

Michael Gregory said...

Never will we let this happen to you guys
NO DEAL

Jukti said...

I would agree if I was Boko Haram.

Mike said...

Wow, I did a double take while reading this, many prayers for your ministry.

vincent david said...

bad idea because there will always be boko haram style attacks/raids, but there is nothing that can replace david wood and sam shamoun. David and sam have the abilty to force an end to this attacks by carrying on exposing the evil lie that is muhummads islam.

Jim person said...

As an act of faith this takes some beating.

I have the utmost respect for you.

All the best to you both.

You are a great man!

Dacritic said...

And both your wives are great women for even allowing this.

Isaac said...

Dear Sam & David,
You both are not criticizing Prophet Mohammad, but on the contrary you both are bringing facts from their own sources i.e. Quran & Hadiths. Mohammad built a hedge around himself by claiming that all the prophets are without sin and above all he (Mohammad) can’t be criticized without consequences. Bible is very clear that every man or a woman is born in sin this includes all the biblical prophets from Abraham to the last Biblical prophet, excluding Jesus and Quran even admits based on QS 19:19.

A tree is known by it’ fruits and you both are clearly exposing those dirty fruits on the basis of Islamic teachings. Nobody can or should blame you both. They should blame the source that is Mohammad and his teaching based on the divine revelation that he was getting while under blanket with Aisha based on Shahi Al-Bukhari (volume-5 #3775). This hadith should compel all the Muslims around the world to think as to what kind of revelations Mohammad was getting from Allah?

Rita said...

This is frightening!

Please don't.

Your work here is not done yet!

YOU ARE NEEDED HERE.

MORE THAN EVER !

Traeh said...

I would say you should preserve yourselves because the world needs great teachers and there are very few of them like you guys. On the other hand, I guess part of what makes you great teachers is that you are willing to go all out like this.

But realistically, how would this deal even happen? I doubt Boko Haram will accept any deal based on mere trust. Boko Haram would want you to surrender yourselves to them before they'd let the girls go. Even if you agreed to trust them to let the girls go after you surrender, Boko Haram probably would be hesitant about bringing you into the situation, since their might be consequences for kidnapping two Americans, an act which might bring down on Boko Haram's head U.S. intelligence agencies, U.S. law enforcement, U.S. military special forces, drone attacks, etc.

It also wouldn't seem to make sense for you to trust any word of Boko Haram that they will let the girls go if you first surrender yourself to Boko Haram.

So it's hard to see how this deal could realistically take place.

Still, it's incredibly brave and heroic, and I don't doubt that David and Sam would follow through if it were realistically possible to free the girls by a David and Sam substitution.

King Arthur said...

no brothers, do not do such a thing...though many of us do not know you personally, we still feel a spiritual affinity with you all.
.
in this crazy world we all need brothers like you two who are bulwarks of sanity
.
please do not do it.

Nothin'ButTheTruth said...

Wow, I see most of people here don't understand sarcasm...

"Greater love has no man than this..."

Ban Koran said...

I have to go with the majority on this one. The fact is, Boko Haram work on a fundamentally different set of ethical axioms than we do. You David, know this better than all of us.

This means if they noticed your deal at all, they would use it to kill you as a blasphemer and it will have zero benefit for the slave-raided girls, as they see no ethical reason to honour an agreement with a kaffir.

If you really want to martyr yourselves for their release, go to Nigeria, get a-hold of some decent weapons and find Boko Haram and start killing them till its no longer worth the risk to them to hold the girls or continue slave raids against non-Muslims.
We in fact have done this before to great success and the virtual end of slavery for over a century.


This was known as, 'The Colonial Period'.

TAREK said...

Hello!
NO DEAL but deal. Well if we are going to use their book (Q 3 verse 28) Therefore we can say let go into a deal and once our girls are given back to us we can then read from their book 3:28.
If they are happy with the trick then we will ask them to condemn allah.
MAY GOD YAHWEH BLESS you always Dr. David and Brother Sam as well as your families IN JESUS' NAME AMEN

Ben said...

David & Sam have validated their faith by following Jesus to the cross. My faith is lessr, I can not sacrifice myself.

Brothers and Sisters, the concerns you expressed above are valid. These brethren are needed to continue their ministry.

While there is very little chance that Boko Haram will make such an exchange deal, consider the consequences for a moment.

The media would be grabbed by the nose and dragged into the ring. They would be unable to ignore and cover up the event. The audience of Acts 19 would grow exponentially and millions of viewers would be exposed to the truth.

This is an unparalled opportunity to expose the evil core of Islamic doctrine and practice.

Let us agree and pray in the name of Jesus: Lord, as you encountered Saul on the road to Damascus, so encounter every Muslim, breaking the yoke of slavery to Satan. Amen!

Glory to God! I'm speechless!

9jaguy said...

Wow, David Wood, this is worthy of all the praise I can give to another human being. As a Nigerian christian from the north, I can't tell you how much respect I have toward you for doing this; even I, sadly, do not have the courage to. That being said, I am glad that boko haram will more than likely not even know about this deal let alone accept it. It is because of you and Sam Shamoun that I now have a heart for reaching out to the muslims around me. The world definitely needs you around; you are doing a great work for the kingdom.
God bless you my brother, and thank you so much for your concern for my people.

Legend said...

David, Sam...a brave thing you are doing. May God work it out according to His will, but I DO hope the girls can be saved without the loss of your lives.

Will keep you both in prayer.

TPaul said...

Sorry David and Sam, You cannot and must not make a deal with Satan or his minions here on earth. Islam is an evil ideology and we need warriors like you and Sam on the intellectual front line rather than having you sacrifice yourselves tho these barbarians. Good bless and keep you both, along with your families safe from danger... We are all praying for the release of those innocent Nigerian girls... May the Lord send his mercy and love to change the hearts of the Boko haram members.

Pel Ort said...

That is powerful!

Pay attention people, all for Jesus.

FascinatingVision said...

Wait a minute, wait a minute. I love you David Wood and I love you Sam Shamoun. Don't give yourselves to the "Muslim Islamic Terrorists" a.k.a. "Islamic Extremists/Jihadists" called: Boko Haram in exchange for those girls that Boko Haram kidnapped. I am going to miss you David Wood and you Sam Shamoun if you guys did that.
