Normal I Guess Thats Why It Is Called A Miracle


A PRIEST has died after trying to demonstrate how Jesus walked on water.

Evangelist preacher Franck Kabele, 35, told his congregation he could repeat the biblical miracle.

But he drowned after walking out to sea from a beach in the capital Libreville in Gabon, west Africa.

One eyewitness said: "He told churchgoers he'd had a revelation that if he had enough faith, he could walk on water like Jesus.

"He took his congregation to the beach saying he would walk across the Komo estuary, which takes 20 minutes by boat.

"He walked into the water, which soon passed over his head and he never came back."

Or a Darwin Award sheesh.

Is that really faith? Sounds more like some form of mental illness. Someone who thinks they're able to walk on water has an apparent poor grip on reality and it's manifesting itself in his belief.

It's simple, if you walk into a lake or similar body of water, you're going to sink. Who'd he think he was, anyway?

I hope this doesn´t plant the seed of doubt on any of the members in his congregation.

I hope they didn't believe him in the first place.

Hopefully this should be a lesson that God doesn't suspend the laws of nature for anyone, no matter how self-righteous their dreams are.
