Up here on the Sunshine Coast where the Australia Zoo is, there has been a furore recently when an e-mail made it to the media stating that Steve Irwin gave his heart and life to the Lord at the Kings Christian Church (AOGish) just weeks before he died. The pastor of King's denies this actually happened and is sorry that one of his staff had a mind to send out such a message from the church's office computer.
How desperate are many christians to come up with a way to manipulate the facts so that it's seen that Steve will be frolicking around in heaven with the rest of the 'holy' and great people. So what if he never gave his life to the Lord? He certainly gave his life to the planet and its creatures. Will he now be running around in an eternal and tormentuous hell because he should have been fishing for men rather than fishing for crocs?
