It’s not good to try to bargain with the Creator:

A man in Ukraine set out to prove that the Lord would protect him when he clambered into the lion enclosure at a Kiev zoo Sunday, The St Petersburg Times reports.

An official at the zoo said: “The man shouted ‘God will save me, if he exists’, lowered himself by a rope into the enclosure, took his shoes off and went up to the lions.”

    I wish someone would have told this man the old joke about the guy who was on his roof as the flood waters rose.

The man drowned. When he got to heaven, he asked God, “I had faith – why didn’t you save me?” God shrugged his shoulders and said, “I sent two boats and a helicopter…”
