A woman in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, drove into oncoming traffic on January 7 in order to “test her faith.” She was convinced that God would protect her from injury, so she tested the Lord by dangerously putting other motorists at risk.
And Jesus answered him, “It is said, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test” (Luke 4:12).
According to CBS Philly, an investigator said the motorist told him she had been driving around for a few hours, waiting for a calling from God, when she decided to drive through the oncoming vehicle.
“Reilly related God took care of her by not having her injured,” wrote Trooper Bruce Balliet in an arrest affidavit. “Reilly expressed no concerns or remorse for the victims. Reilly also stated she did not care if the other people were injured because God would have taken care of them.”
The woman, Nadejda Reilly (31), apparently believed this was her way of forcing God into action. Tragically, two innocent people were taken to the hospital.
The moral of the story is don’t be a charismatic. It melts your brain.
