Every religion in the world teaches its believers to abide by the laws of the religion.
such laws include paying homage to their God or object of worship.
The Almighty God hates it when people who believe or do not believe in him mock or disrespect him. That’s why the bible says in Galatians 6:7 that Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”
No matter how powerful, rich or famous you are as a human, it does it give you the right to think you are bigger than the almighty God so as to mock or challenge his authority.
These 5 famous and influential people mocked God and ended up cutting their lives short.
1. John Lennon of The Beatles
John Lennon was a legend and the co-founder of The Beatles in the 1960s. The Beatles rule the music world for nearly a decade with their great music.
In 1966, John Lennon was interviewed by an American Magazine and this is what he had to say and I quote “Christianity will end, it will disappear. I do not have to argue about that. I am certain. Jesus was okay, but his subjects were too simple, Today we are more famous than Him”
These words were greeted with anger and outrage from his fans and family. People set their vinyl and posters on fire to show how angry they were. This led to the collapse of the Beatles in 1970
On the 8th of December 1970, John Lennon was shot six times in his head by one of his fans in front of his house and he died on the spot. Don’t forget he mocked God in the year 1966 and was shot 6 times. Really scary
2. Marilyn Monroe
One could say she had the kind of life everyone would wish for with a great amount of wealth and fame. One day whiles filming, Marilyn Monroe was visited by Billy Graham. He told her that the spirit of God has sent him to preach to her.
After hearing what the preacher had to say, she said and I quote ‘I don’t need your Jesus’. A week after that incident, she was found dead in her bedroom. It is believed that she committed suicide
3. Thomas Andrews (Titanic Shipbuilder)
Thomas was inspired to build a great ship greater than any other during his time. After building the mighty and famous Titanic, a reporter asked him how safe the ship would be. in reply to the question, Thomas said, ”Even God himself couldn’t sink the ship”. After that statement, the Titanic set sail and I believe you all know what happened to the ship and the number of people who lost their lives
4. Tancredo Neves ( President of Brazil )
During his Presidential campaign, he said if he got 500,000 votes from his party, not even God would remove him from Presidency. He did get the votes but he fell sick a day before was made the president and died.
5. Cazuza (Bi-sexual Brazilian composer, singer, and poet):
While smoking his cigarette during a show in Rio de Janeiro, he puffed out some smoke into the air and said:’God, that’s for you.’
He died at the age of 32 of LUNG CANCER in a horrible manner.
No matter what you do always remember that God is not supposed to be mocked and whatever you sow, you will surely reap it.
