Tragedy for Christian copying Jesus’ 40-day fast

Consider the source,,,
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.

Khulu Reinfirst Manyuka reportedly left his Zimbabwe home on June 15 and headed into the wilderness to pray, redirecting his attention away from worldly things and instead toward God, according to Nehanda Radio.

The report says Manyuka was known by his family and local community as “a very spiritual person whose faith could move mountains.”

“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.

According to family members, Manyuka had no history of illness.

“He was a healthy and religious old man who did not even look his age,” said one family member.
