Those Who Mocked God

Johnny Ramsey, a favorite preacher of many, wrote the following article for the Gospel Minutes, on some who mocked God:

John Lennon: Some years before, during an interview with an American magazine, he 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). Lennon, some years after making that statement, was shot six times.

Tancredo Neves (President of Brazil): During the presidential campaign, he said if he got five hundred votes from his party, not even God could move him from presidency. Sure he got the votes, but he got sick (one day before he was supposed to take the oath of office) and died one month later.

Cazuza (bisexual Brazilian composer, singer and poet): During a show in Caneca (Rio de Janeiro), Cazuza, while smoking his cigarette, puffed out some smoke in the air and said, “God that’s for you!” He died at the age of 32 of Aids in a horrible manner.

An employee of the White Star Line (which built the Titanic): After the construction of the Titanic a reporter asked, “How safe would the Titanic be?” With an ironic tone the employee said, “Not even God can sink it” (National Archives and Records Administration). The result? We know what happened.

Man becomes so arrogant. “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good” (Psalm 14:1).

“Do not be deceived, God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life” (Galatians 6:7,8).

“If the righteous receive their due on earth, how much more the ungodly and the sinners” (Proverbs 11:31). Destruction often starts already in this life and carries through into eternity.
