An elderly Zimbabwean Christian man has died after he allegedly attempted to emulate Jesus Christ by going without food or water for 40 days and 40 nights, according to African news sites.
NewZimbabwe.com reported that a 73-year-old man named Reinfirst Manyuka left his home on June 15 to embark on a spiritual journey in the wilderness, just like Jesus did for 40 days and 40 nights in the desert while He was tempted by the devil.
Although family members say Manyuka, who is from the Zimuto communal areas in southeastern Zimbabwe, was steadfast in his faith in the Lord, authorities said he died after no more than 30 days of refraining from food and water in the mountains. more >>
