General Joshua was called General Butt, a lot of people have wondered why he was called that but the reason is that he always fights naked with his boots and guns when he wants to fight as he firmly believes that his nakedness is serves to protect it

One thing that made many people dislike General Blahyi was his use of child soldiers. He forcibly recruited child soldiers and fed them all sorts of lies to initiate and confess his sins after hugging God. General Joshua said that it was a ritual for him to kill a child before going to war. He said the children he killed were usually 3- 12 years old. He would eat their body parts with his child soldier and drink their blood. He let the child soldier see these rituals as usual

How he met Christ

He was preparing for another round of murders when he met Christ. After performing his ritual of sacrificing a little girl, he asked his boys to bring him water to wash the blood from his hands. At that moment, when God visited him, he said he remembered the exact words that God said to him that day: ” Repent and live, carry on and die, ” he said like ice, these words hit his heart and when his boys returned, he told them that that day they will not fight for exactly that time, fear hit him, the fearless became afraid
