Emergency services bravely tried to rescue a festival-goer who ran straight into the Burning Man during Nevada’s famous arts and music festival.
“And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.” Mark 9:43,44 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: New Agers get mad when I call Burning Man the world’s largest pagan festival, but guess what? It is. And like all paganism, it celebrates the accomplishments of man outside of any relationship with the God who created man, but with a twist. Burning Man is a festival celebrating unregenerate man as said man burns in eternal flames of torment, kinda like how the Bible says unsaved people wind up after they die rejecting the salvation of Jesus Christ. I wonder what this man who threw himself into the fire thought when, after he presumably died in the flames, he opened his eyes in a burning Hell from which there is no escape? Get saved and avoid the smoking section.
Approximately 70,000 people from all over the world have gathered for the annual Burning Man festival, which is taking place in the Black Rock Desert. But crowds were horrified when one reveler made a beeline for the giant wooden effigy and was engulfed by the flames.
He had to dodge a number of rangers and law enforcement personnel in order to reach the fire, which stretches approximately 50 feet into the air.
It is believed the man died in the shocking incident, although this has not yet been confirmed.
The festival issued a statement through its website to say that at ‘approximately 10.30pm Saturday evening, a male participant at the annual Burning Man event in Northern Nevada broke through a safety perimeter and into into a fire. Black Rock City fire personnel rescued him from the fire.’
‘The individual was treated on scene, transported to the on-site medical facility and airlifted to a burn center’. source
