Cannibalism and World Missions

D. James Kennedy, in his book What If Jesus Had Never Been Born?, tells of an amusing story about world missions:

During World War II, on a remote island in the Pacific, an American G.I. met a national who could speak English carrying a Bible. “The soldier pointed to the Bible and grinned knowingly. ‘We educated people don’t put much faith in that Book anymore,’ he said.

The islander grinned back. ‘Well, it’s a good thing for you that we [believe this Book],’ he said while patting his stomach, ‘or else you’d be in here by now.'”
