All religion in this world teaches its believers to abide by its laws. God also prohibits us from challenging its authority.
No matter how much fame, money and success you have, it does not give you the licence to think that you are beyond God’s reach.
Here are top 5 influential people who famously mocked God and ended up dead.
- John Lennon ( The Beatles)
John Lennon was a British legendary who co-founded the British Invasion band called ‘The Beatles’ in the 1960s. Lennon and co-writer Paul McCartney wrote hundreds of songs together along with George Harrison and Ringo Star, and together they remained at the top of the list for nearly a decade. The ladies were head over heels in love with John Lennon.
Some years ago, during his interview with an American Magazine, Lennon had said: “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” (1966).
His remark led to an outrage among his fans and triggered a protest rally where people expressed their anger by setting the vinyl records and The Beatles posters afire. In 1970, The Beatles disbanded.
On the 8th of December 1970, Lennon was shot six times in his head by one of his fanatics in front of his house and died on the spot. Interesting fact, he kind of did predict how he would die. Now, that’s spooky!
2. Marilyn Monroe ( Hollywood Celebrity )
She had a perfect life anyone could ever dream of; a remarkable amount of wealth and great fame.
One day during filming, she was visited by Billy Graham during a presentation of a show. He said the Spirit of God had sent him to preach to her. After hearing what the Preacher had to say, she said: ‘I don’t need your Jesus’. A week later, she was found dead in her bedroom.
The most accepted theory suggested she was suffering from depression and committed suicide. In fact, it was actually the right time for her to seek God.
3. Thomas Andrews (Titanic Shipbuilder)
Thomas Andrews was inspired to build a ship that will be legendary during his time.
After the construction of the mighty Titanic, a British luxury liner, a reporter asked him how safe the Titanic would be. With an ironic tone he said, ”Even God himself couldn’t sink the ship”.
The result: I think you all know what happened to the Titanic.
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.
Sure he got the votes, but the unfortunate fella got sick a day before he was made President and died.
Scott in his golden days with AC/DC since 1974 had replaced Dave Evans as the vocalist of the band.
On one of his 1979 songs he sang: ‘Don’t stop me; I’m going down all the way, down the highway to hell’.
A year later, Scott was found dead on 19 February 1980; he had been choked by his own vomit.
Humans can only come up with theories, but God alone knows the true reasons for their death.
