An infidel killed by a gnat



It is said an infidel defied God during a fearful storm, by baring his bosom and looking upward, shaking his fist at God, cursing and saying, "If there is a God, I dare Him to strike me!" Did God do it? Oh, no! He would not waste His lightning on a fellow like that. When he ceased his blasphemous ravings and started into the house, he sucked a little black gnat down his windpipe and choked to death. Just a gnat to care for him. He was just an independent, blasphemous fool.
