Yeah, this story isn’t about actor Jim Caviezel. World Net Daily reports:
A 73-year old Christian man trying to emulate Jesus by going without food for 40 days and 40 nights has reportedly died a month into his abstention from all nourishment. “He was a very spiritual man. It’s unfortunate he had to die this way,” said a close relative, requesting anonymity. Although he was trying to copy or even break Jesus’ epic fast of 40 days, he fell short by 10 days. “After a month we got the sad news of his death,” the relative noted.
The story has generated a heated discussion among World Net Daily readers over whether the Bible actually commands fasting.
