Testing God


Keyword: test, tempt, apologetics

A Ukranian man who claimed God would keep him safe was killed by a lioness in the Kiev zoo. The man reportedly shouted, "God will save me, if he exists," and then lowered himself into the lion's enclosure at the zoo. He took his shoes off and walked up to the lions. Officials say the lioness went straight for him, and killed the man instantly. The incident was the first of its kind at the zoo, and occurred on a Sunday evening when the park was filled with visitors.

Luke 4:9-12 (NIV) “The devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. ‘If you are the Son of God,’ he said, ‘throw yourself down from here. [10] For it is written: He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully; [11] they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.' [12] Jesus answered, ‘It says: Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'"
