Texas Pastor Electrocuted During Baptism

"A pastor performing a baptism was electrocuted inside his church Sunday morning after adjusting a nearby microphone while standing in water, a church employee said."

Rev. Kyle Lake of University Baptist Church was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital; the woman being baptised "was not seriously injured." More on Yahoo News, via Associated Press.

The story says that apparently the woman being baptised had not yet stepped into the water. No word on whether she will proceed with another pastor or church, or take it as a sign not to join this particular sect.

I guess Jesus didn't believe the pastor's claim that he (the pastor) believed he (Jesus) was his Lord and Savior?

Or maybe Jesus believed him a little too much?
