Crucifix Crushes Man’s Leg

“David Jimenez believed his devotion to a crucifix was responsible for his wife being cured of cancer. Well, the crucifix fell on him, crushing one of his legs.”

Jimenez asked the church if he could clean the crucifix, so the church let him. While cleaning it, it toppled and crushed his leg. he is now suing the church!

  1. This is such a classic story…fallen human nature at it’s finest!
    One could make many reflections:
    1. Perhaps God shouldn’t have healed his wife, then he would still have his leg. A leg, after all, must be worth more than a wife!
    2. We see here the curse of idolatry. Your idols eventually topple over and crush you.
    3. Marriages are like this: when they start, the couples bless God and each other for all the goodness they receive from each other, how they are the divinely-appointed mate for life, etc., but after 5 or 10 years, when trying to help each other, and they are instead bruised, they curse each other, and fight in court for the children and possessions.
    4. “Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil?” Job 2:10
    5. “And when the ass saw the angel of the Lord, she thrust herself unto the wall, and crushed Balaam’s foot against the wall: and he smote her again.” Num. 22:25
