This just in: Unless you’re JC himself, you’re not walking on water, folks.

Just last month we told you folks about a psychic who stabbed himself in order to prove his immortality. But guess what? He died. And now we have another genius here by the name of Jonathan Mthethwa, a pastor from the Saint of the Last Days Church.

Mthethwa was trying to show his congregation how Jesus walked on water by crossing what is locally known as Crocodile River on foot. And you probably know what happened when he attempted this: Mthethwa was eaten by three crocodiles. Yes, three crocs.

According to witnesses, the pastor managed to get around 90ft into the river before trying to climb onto the surface of the river. It didn’t end well. And all that was left of him was his sandals and his undies. Geez.

Here’s what eyewitness Deacon Nkosi told the Daily Post about the incident:

“The pastor taught us about faith on Sunday last week. He promised he would demonstrate his faith to us today, but he unfortunately ended up drowning and getting eaten by three large crocodiles in front of us. We still don’t understand how this happened because he fasted and prayed the whole week. They finished him in a couple of minutes. All that was left of him when they finished eating him is a pair of sandals and his underwear floating above the water.”

This story sounds so absurd it can’t be real, can it? Well, it seems like it is. So here’s a lesson for you all: let’s stay away from going into crocodile infested waters. Yes, that’s a good lesson.
