You’d think priests would have read the Bible
A priest in Gabon decided to prove to his congregation that his faith in God would allow him to walk on water. He strode confidently out into the waves, and drowned.
Maybe it’s not that God hates him, or doesn’t exist; maybe God was just so impressed at his faith he decided to promote him to Heaven ahead of schedule.
Or maybe god just can’t resist a good prank. After all, to paraphrase the warning that god gives several times in the bible (Deuteronomy 6:16, Matthew 4:17, Luke 4:12):
Don’t tempt me.
You’ve been warned. God has very weak self control and can’t be held liable for his actions.
