Are You Superstitious?

Are You Superstitious?

Are you superstitious? As you’re about to hear, superstitions are not only foolish, they can be quite dangerous to your physical health.  This is the Creation Moments Minute.

Last spring, a man fainted while driving through a tunnel near Portland, Oregon. This caused a head-on collision that sent four people to the hospital. The driver said he had lost consciousness while holding his breath. According to CarMax, the auto sales giant, “Holding your breath while driving though a tunnel is [America’s] favorite driving superstition.”

Christians, don’t be superstitious. You have nothing to gain by being superstitious. Some people would even say that superstition is just another word for idolatry. As believers, we should not put our faith in objects like rabbits’ feet or in manmade rituals like holding our breath in a tunnel. We should put our faith only in the one true God who is sovereign over all His creation.
