Default Untimely deaths (aka: Don't mock God, or you'll die)

My note: (if he really said that) why did God wait 15 years to kill John Lennon? And what about all the people that have "mocked" God and didn't die. Or didn't mock God but died?

Edited for typical horrible format. Almost unreadable.


Death is certain but the Bible speaks about untimely death!

Make a personal reflection about this.....

Very interesting, read until the end.....
It is written in the Bible (Galatians 6:7):


"Be not deceived; God is not mocked:
for whatsoever a man soweth,
that shall he also reap.


Here are some men and women who mocked God :


John Lennon (Singer):

Some years before, during an interview with an American Magazine, he said:

"Christianity will end, it will disappear. I do not have to argue about that. I am certain. Jesus was ok, but his subjects were too simple. Today we are
more famous than Him" (1966).

Lennon, after saying that the Beatles were more famous than Jesus Christ, was shot six times.


Tancredo Neves (President of Brazil ):
During the Presidential campaign, he said if he got 500,000 votes from his party, not even God would remove him from Presidency.

Sure he got the votes, but he got sick a day before being made President, then he died.



Cazuza (Bi-sexual Brazilian composer, singer and poet):

During A show in Canecio (Rio de Janeiro), while smoking his cigarette, he puffed out some smoke into the air and said: "God, that's for you." He died at the age of 32 of AIDS in a horrible manner.


The man who built the Titanic:

After the construction of Titanic, a reporter asked him how safe the Titanic would be. With an ironic tone he said: "Not even God can sink it" The result: I think you all know what happened to the Titanic .


Marilyn Monroe (Actress):

She was visited by Billy Graham during a presentation of a show. He said the Spirit of God had sent him to preach to her. After hearing what the Preacher had to say, she said: "I don't need your Jesus". A week later, she was found dead in her apartment .


Bon Scott (Singer):
The ex-vocalist of the AC/DC. On one of his 1979 songs he sang: "Don't stop me, I'm going down all the way, down the highway to hell".

On the 19th of February 1980, Bon Scott was found dead, he had been choked by his own vomit.


Campinas (IN 2005)

In Campinas, Brazil a group of friends, drunk, went to pick up a friend.
The mother accompanied her to the car and was so worried about the drunkenness of her friends and she said to the daughter holding her hand, who was already seated in the car: "My Daughter, Go With God And May He Protect You." She responded: "Only If He (God) Travels In The Trunk, Cause
Inside Here....It's Already Full "

Hours later, news came by that they had been involved in a fatal accident, everyone had died, the car could not be recognized what type of car it had been, but surprisingly, the trunk was intact.

The police said there was no way the trunk could have remained intact. To their surprise, inside the trunk was a crate of eggs, none was broken.


Christine Hewitt (Jamaican Journalist and entertainer) said the Bible (Word of God) was the worst book ever written.

In June 2006 she was found burnt beyond recognition in her motor vehicle.

Many more important people have forgotten that there is no other name that was given so much authority as the name of Jesus.

Many have died, but only Jesus died and rose again, and he is still alive.

"Jesus"

P.S: If it was a joke, you would have sent it to everyone. So are you going to have courage to send this?

I have done my part, Jesus said "If you are embarrassed about me, I will also be embarrassed about you before my father."

You are my 8 in 8 seconds. I am not breaking this. No way!

I'M TOLD THIS WORKS!!!!! Bishop T.D. Jakes "8 Second Prayer." Just repeat this prayer and see how God moves!!

"Lord, I love you and I need you, come into my heart, and bless me, my family, my home, and my friends, in Jesus' name. Amen."

Pass this message to 8 people {EXCEPT YOU AND ME}. I hope that you don't ignore this; let God bless you. ~One of the toughest parts of life is deciding when to try harder and when to give up....~

I kind of like the 8 second prayer, because you know, actually speaking to God from your heart takes so much time and effort.

The lesson here is that if you mock God you die, but if you say an insencere 8 seconds prayer God's so pleased he will heap rewards upon you.

...God has social issues.

I have a mental image of Peter Griffen:

A co-worker mocked God once. Ten years later...BAM...herpes.

Madeleine Murray O'Hare, according to her son, went out during a thunderstorm into the backyard and screamed a challenge at God to strike her down if He existed. Of course she wasn't struck. But she was murdered what, 50 years later?

My father-in-law's father met with a strange end that actually fits the topic better, at least as far as most Christians would think of it. He had a strange sense of humor, and one day found it funny to pose as though dead on the couch. He folded his arms with a flower, just like with corpses, and laid there motionless and not breathing when his wife came in, trying to make her think he'd died. The next day, he died suddenly, despite having no known health problems. Just one of those sudden heart attacks.

By the way, I'm absolutely positive I've read the OP on this board before, though I don't know when.

According to the logic of this email, that would probably count.

I thought so to, but I couldn't find it.

Nice to know an all-powerful diety is that thin-skinned and petty.

Yeah, that's why I mentioned it Actually, I was happy that her son (who was the student in question in the prayer in schools decision) refused to exploit her death in any way, saying that no one knows what happened in her last moments (apparently there was probably torture involved.) Anyway, he had the decency not to go there for the delight of certain fundamentalists.
