Evangelist drowns trying to walk on water

Several sources, including World Net Daily, have reported that evangelist Rev. Frank Kabele, of Libreville, Gabon, in Africa, told his congregation that he could emulate Jesus by walking on water. He then walked into the sea and promptly drowned.

An 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."

If it hasn't happened already, I'm sure he'll soon be nominated for the distiguished Darwin Awards.

I remember reading a novelized account of the life of Jesus-forgot the name and author, but he had an interesting take on the Gospel account. In the book, when Jesus saw the disciples in the boat were being menaced by the raging waters of Lake Tiberias, he picked up a big wooden board, climbed on top of it-and surfed out to the boat.
