Arguably, humans have a natural instinct to be ungrateful sometimes. Regardless of what someone else does for you, you will find grounds to criticize them if care is not exercised.

It's safe to say that some people go to the extent of mocking God, forgetting that he was there for them when they had nothing. It's sacrilegious to speak against God or against sacred things. There's no two ways about this.

Do you remember the 5 famous people who mocked God and met their untimely death? This article highlights what they did that resulted in their demise and lessons we can learn.

1. Tancredo Neves

Tancredo was the president of Brazil. During a campaign trail, he said, "If I get 500,000 votes in this year's elections, not even God would remove me from presidency." Granted, he did get that votes and even more, however, he became seriously sick a day before being made president, then died.

2. The builder of Titanic

The Titanic brought a great deal of fame to its owner due to its extra huge shape. A reporter quizzed the builder how safe it was. Ironically, the builder replied saying not even God can sink it. Reports showed the Titanic sink deep into the sea after crushing an iceberg.

3. John Lennon

John Lennon who lived between 1940-1980 made a strange statement in 1966 saying Christianity will varnish. He added, "We are more popular than Jesus now. I won't argue about that, but a time will come when I'll be proved right." 14 years later, John was shot dead by Mark David Chapman in New York on December 8, 1980.

4. Bon Scott

Bon Scott, a singer and ex_vocalist of the AC/DC. On one of his 1979 songs he sang, "Don't stop me, I'm going down all the way, down the highway to hell." He was found dead in his apartment after being choked by his own vomit in 1980.

5. Cazuza

Cazuza was a Brazilian renowned singer of his time. On one occasion, while smoking cigarette, he puffed out the smoke heavenward and said, "God, it's for you." At age 32, he was reported dead due to a horrible lung cancer.

Lessons We Can Learn

1. Never underestimate the power of God. God is real and should not be spoken against or talked to anyhow. Always acknowledge his existence and trust in him.

2. Never allow worldly fortunes, like wealth, fame, and prominence blind you to the extent of treating sacred things as if they were a piece of rag.

3. Keep in mind that the words we speak are powerful. They can go a long way to hunt us, if not now, in the future they can pose problems to us. Before you speak, carefully and wisely choose your words.
