Carol reminded me that the desciples of Jesus died terrible deaths.
First of all, I don't think that's documented in the Bible.
I reminded her that so did the 909 followers of Jim Jones at Jonestown, Guyana in 1978.
Another 39 morons, members of Heaven's Gate and led by Marshall Applewhite all died by apparent suicide as they attempted to avoid the coming of the Hale-Bopp comet in 1997. Applewhite convinced them that the comet was hiding a spaceship that would "cleanse the earth'
Charles Manson's people didn't kill themselves but is there any doubt they would have? They got themselves killed following his lunacy.
Another one in Uganda
At least 235 followers of a doomsday millennium cult died in a church fire in Uganda after apparently being persuaded to take part in a mass suicide by their leader.
Expecting the end of the world, members of the Movement for the Restoration of Ten Commandments of God slaughtered their cattle and feasted for a week, singing religious songs, before the mass suicide on Friday.
All 235 members of the registered sect, including young children, died after their church was set on fire. It was the second largest mass suicide in recent times.
There have been other extreme Christian cults in Uganda, including, the Holy Spirit Movement, which sprang up among northern ethnic groups in the late 1980s. Many hundreds of believers died in suicidal attacks.
Last September, police in central Uganda disbanded another doomsday cult, the World Message Last Warning sect which had 1000 members.
In October 1994, 48 charred corpses belonging to the Solar Temple Cult were found in two Swiss villages and five in Quebec. The sect believed the world was heading for disaster.
The most notorious mass cult death occurred in 1993 at the end of the FBI's 51-day siege in Waco. More than 80 members of the Branch Davidian cult died, with leader David Koresh, amid gun shots and fire.
Then, investigating a little further we find any number of people who died because they believed the nonesense that their adopted leader told them.
So, IF 11 of Jesus desciples died believing HE was the way, they were only the first of many to be deceived by their leader.
