Pastor Tries to Walk on Water Like Jesus, Then Drowns in Front of His Congregation
An evangelist who tried replicating Jesusâ miracle of walking on water has reportedly drowned off the western coast of Africa.
âHe told churchgoers heâd had a revelation that if he had enough faith, he could walk on water like Jesus,â an eyewitness told the Glasgow Daily Record.
âHe 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.â
The New Testament records the story of Jesus walking on the Sea of Galilee as he approached his disciples in a boat.
âAnd in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.â (Matthew 14:25)
As WND reported in April, a researcher at Florida State University believes he has a natural explanation for the account of Jesusâ miraculous walk on the surface of water â ice.
Professor of Oceanography Doron Nof and the co-authors of his study theorize that a rare combination of optimal water and atmospheric conditions resulted in a unique, localized freezing phenomenon called âsprings ice,â according to Physorg.com, which specializes in news about science, technology, physics and space.
