I Reckon They're Dead! Ananias and Sapphira lied and died. So... Why did they die? Religion teaches that God killed them, but the bible does not say that. Again I quote John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. If Jesus died to give us life, God would not kill us. So....How did they die and why? I submit that they lied, believed the enemy's lie and in so doing they turned their back on life. What do you think?
