Several personages made serious mistakes a couple of centuries ago by believing themselves higher and greater than God because of their achievements and small earth glories. Whether you are rich or super intelligent, you shouldn't disrespect God. In this article we talk about some famous people who laughed at God and about what happened to them.
1. John Lennon (The Beatles)
John Lennon was the co-founder of the British band Invasion named "The Beatles", a globally successful musical group that ruled for several decades. Before he passed away, in an interview he said: “Christianity will end very soon, I don't have to discuss this. I'm sure Jesus was fine, but his mission was too simple, today we are more famous than him." His words sparked outrage and prompted some of his fans to burn some of his posters. Some time later, on December 8, 1970, Lennon was murdered by one of his fans who shot him six times in the head.
2.Tancredo Neves (Former President of Brazil)
During his presidential campaigns, he claimed that if he got 500,000 votes from his party, even God would not remove him from the presidency. God was good, he got the votes, but he fell seriously ill one day before being named president before he died.
3. Marilyn Monroe
Hollywood celebrity, Marilyn Monroe had a great fame and wealth that many would have liked to have in her time. One day, while making a movie on a set, she received a visit from a preacher named Billy Graham who said to her, "The Spirit of God sent me to preach for you." After listening kindly to the preacher, she said to him: “I don't need your Jesus”. Exactly a week later, she was found dead in her bedroom. Investigations revealed that she committed suicide following an attack of depression.
4. Thomas Andrews (Titanic shipbuilder)
Known for having built the Titanic ship, Thomas Andrews was interviewed by a reporter who asked him how safe the Titanic ship was, with a tongue-in-cheek tone he replied, “Even God himself cannot sink the ship". The rest, we all know it.
5. Good Scott
Ronald Belford Scott, a former AC/DC singer, was born 9 July 1946 and is a British Australian singer. The lead vocalist of 1974 rock band AC / DC is better known as Bon Scott. One of his songs used to be: "Don't stop me, I go down the highway to hell." After being choked on his own saliva, a year later he was found dead.
