I sure hope she does, and today will be a day of either much joy, or much disappointment for her family, and also many Malaysian’s who have been keeping their eyes peeled and trying to look for her.
6 days ago, on the 23rd of January 2008, 50 bomohs unanimously agreed that Sharlinie was alive and will return in a week. I mean, 50 bomohs cannot go wrong, can they?
The bomohs were unanimous in saying that Sharlinie, who was reported missing on Jan 9, was alive and would be found within a week – Paragraph 5, The Star, Jan 23
In the old testament, if a prophet makes a prophecy and it doesn’t come true, he is was to die. That is how seriously God takes ‘speaking in His name’. (deut 18:20-22)
If sharlinie does not come home tomorrow, what becomes of the 50 bomohs’ predictions?
Will the government take action against them?
Will they refund their hefty fees to the family?
Most of all, what will they say that will comfort Sharlinie’s sorrowing family? I can’t imagine what they would say.
I’m sorry for being so negative, I don’t blame her family for calling the bomohs, even though I neither believe in bomohs nor the powers they summon for their ‘revelations’, but I’d feel very angry if these folks are taking this family for a ride.
If the bomohs claim that their revelation was indeed genuine and that they didn’t conjure it up on their own, may I humbly ask all to question the ‘powers’ that they consult, who has obviously lied to them? My bible says,
Ye are of the devil, as your father, and ye desire to the lusts of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has not stood in the truth, because there is no truth in him.When he speaks falsehood, he speaks of what is his own; for he is a liar and its father. – John 8:44
Whether the bomoh’s are right or not, I just hope Sharlinie comes home soon. No child or family should go through this.
