Sixty-year-old British comedian Ian Cognito started performing stand-up comedy back in 1985. He liked to ‘shock’ his audiences with vulgarities and abandoning all decency. His comedy act was often banned, and by 2008, he was known as ‘Britain’s most banned comic’.
On April 11, Cognito was on stage with his usual blend of shock and vulgarity, only this time he started joking about death and dying, and said, “Imagine if I died in front of you!”
Suddenly, he started breathing hard and had to sit on a stool. People thought this was part of his act, but Cognito wasn’t acting. Right there on stage, he died.
Because God alone holds the keys of life and death, it makes us wonder if God was fed-up with his blasphemies and vulgarities. Sometimes, people push sin too far. Sodom and Gomorrah sure did.
Sin is a deadly game, and Christians are to stay far away from it.
James 1:15 “Then when lust hath conceived, it brigheth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.”
