First of all, this isn’t funny.
Secondly, I did laugh.
A pastor in Zimbabwe was killed by a crocodile while trying to walk on water. Here is the quote from a deacon that made me laugh:
“He promised he would demonstrate his faith to us today, but he unfortunately ended up drowning and getting eaten by three large crocodiles in front of us.”
One would think this would lead the church members to re-examine their doctrine and understanding of faith. At the very least, it would lead to a search for a new church. But never underestimate the insanity of people in the church.
“We still don’t understand how this happened because he fasted and prayed the whole week.”
It’s a giant mystery.
Come on, church! We gotta do better than this.
Apparently this story isn’t true. I should have known. That one paragraph was too humorously-expertly written. Bummer, I’ve been had. My typical ironclad confidence in my own brain has been shattered. I may never recover.
Wait, wait. I feel better. I think I’ll go for a walk now.
