“It’s like he didn’t even know it was fire, it’s like he thought it was just a playground”
“Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.” Mark 9:48,49
Inspired by the New Age event ‘Burning Man’, Element 11 held this year in Salt Lake City, Utah, recorded it’s first human sacrifice. Does this surprise anyone? The bible says that it is Hell that burns with unquenchable fire, and that Hell was made for the Devil and his angels. So when pagan groups like this meet to invoke spirits and demons from another world, is it a really a surprise when they show up and inspire a worshipper to offer themselves as a sacrifice?
On Monday, scores of “burners” — who commune in the Nevada desert every August for Burning Man — were mourning the doomed festival-goer after he dove into the flames during a moonlit bonfire ritual at the Element 11 fest near Salt Lake City late Saturday.
Earlier in the day, he had told other festivalgoers he planned to jump into the three-story-tall inferno, police said. “This is what he was going to do, and it’s what he did,” Grantsville Police Lt. Steve Barrett told reporters Monday.
“He was running out there. He was dancing around a little bit, and then all of a sudden he jumped into it,” Daisey McDonald told KUTV-TV. “It’s like he didn’t even know it was fire, it’s like he thought it was just a playground”.
“It took not even seconds. He was just through the barricades and into the fire.”
Element 11 is a Burning Man offshoot, described on its website as a regional gathering of devotees of the annual counterculture extravaganza.
