A Chinese man who swore to God that he didn't owe money to a neighbour was hit by lightning a minute later.

Quote:
"He borrowed 500 yuan three years ago from me for a friend's marriage gift, but he has denied it ever since then," said Huang, who went to Xu's home to demand payment.

"I told him that if he dared to swear to God that he didn't owe me the money, then I would waive his debt," said Huang.

Xu made the oath, but was suddenly struck by lightning a minute later.

It would seem that, from time to time, there is actually justice in this world.

@Merry Andrew,
Struck dead for $73.

This sounds a little excessive... even for a cranky deity.

When I was a kid, I sat in church, so heard for myself when the preacher told how God struck a woman dead for cheating on her tithes. This may have struck fear into a few hearts, but it merely stirred my skepticism.

Fear is the greatest selling point of religions.

@edgarblythe,
FWIW, I always think of this related witty quote when I hear about things like this odd news item:

"Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car. "
