MIRACLE IS SUNK
A PRIEST has died after trying to demonstrate how Jesus walked on water.

Evangelist preacher Franck Kabele, 35, told his congregation he could repeat the biblical miracle.

But he drowned after walking out to sea from a beach in the capital Libreville in Gabon, west Africa.

One eyewitness said: "He told churchgoers he'd had a revelation that if he had enough faith, he could walk on water like Jesus.

"He 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."

He must have been harbouring some deep doubts about his faith.

I'm wondering if his life insure will be valid.....act-of-god clause could be a problem.

Should have put his faith in some swimming lessons.

I wonder at what point he realized he was not, in fact, walking on the surface.

He forgot that he was a mere mortal. Man should not try to stretch the limits of his own faith or the grace of God.

You're supposed to put on those big inflatable shoes first.

When he was submerged under the water, his lungs filled with water, and he couldn't breathe. Guess, the guy finally figured it out.

I can walk on water in the winter but I wait until it freezes.

Hold on. This isn't testing God, this was a show of faith based on a revelation, the kind Pat Robertson has all the time.

The guy had such belief that he walked out into the water expecting any minute that the God he believes in would raise him up. It was the same situation with Peter when Jesus told him to get out of the boat and walk to Him, right? Peter failed in his faith, was rebuked by Jesus, but at least he didn't end up sleeping with the fishes.

We were told at our school that we must constantly "get out of the boat" lest we end up with an untested faith.

Which is it, believers, get out of the boat or cower down in the gunwales???

It takes more than merely having just "enough faith", this goes beyond believing you can walk on water. This man was walking on blind faith, which is bad in a world where cliffs are on all sides.

It takes pontoons on the shoes to properly walk on water.

I think the important thing is design yourself a test that won't actually be too risky, and make sure the results are open to interpretation.
