Pastor Tries to Walk on Water Like Jesus, Then Drowns in Front of His Congregation

Walking on water is not easy. Not too many people have the ability. Letís see, thereís Jesus, and well, thatís about it. Unfortunately for one pastor on the West Coast of Africa, his attempt to become the second man to make this impossible feat a reality cost him his life.

Pastor Franck Kabele, 35, told his congregation that he was capable of reenacting the very miracles of Jesus Christ. He decided to make it clear through way of demonstration on Gabonís beach in the capital city of Libreville. Referencing Matthew 14:22-33, Kabele said that he received a revelation which told him that with enough faith he could achieve what Jesus was able to. According to an eyewitness, Kabele took his congregation out to the beach. He told them that he would cross the Kombo estuary by foot, which is normally a 20 minute boat ride.Sadly by the second step into the water Kabele found himself completely submerged. He never returned.

I believe it was Satan that was tempting Jesus in the wilderness (Matthew 4), telling Him to jump from the cliff and God would send angels to rescue Him before He hit the ground. Jesus rejected Satan's temptation.

This pastor was obviously fooled, by some other spirit or his own imagination, to do what he did.

This is one very obvious reason not to take the bible literally.

None of the witnesses could swim?

How the hell does a person manage to drown just like that? I've read so many stories where people fall into the water and instantly sink to the bottom. I can't swim very well at all, but I have always found it extremely easy to not drown, even in turbulent water. Am I just naturally more buoyant than other people? What's going on here?

Although I do know that some people are just naturally buoyant (me)... others like my mom sink like a stone.

But... if this "preacher" was that stupid.... well.... one less stupid person..... Wonder how many of his "kool-aid" drinkers are getting ready to follow in his footsteps? LOLOLOL

Stick to preaching and not acting like you can perform the miracles of Jesus. You ARENT Jesus and never will be.
