During a performance in Canecio (Rio de Janeiro), he blasted out some smoke into the air while smoking his cigarette and exclaimed, "God, that's for you." He died of lung cancer at the age of 32 in a horrific way. His name is widely known today because of this incident.
The king gave him permission to eat food again and drink water from the river. Then he went back to his room and sat down there by the window. After a while, he fell asleep with Jesus on his left and Moses on his right. In this state, they sent him to heaven alive.
It shows that if you want to be successful in life, you should learn how to pray. Also, it proves that God will answer your prayers if you are faithful with your requests.
Prayer is very important in Christianity because without it, we can't have close relations with God. It is also useful when we need help from Him; for example, when we face difficult situations in our lives. Prayer gives us strength when we need it most.
"God, that's for you," says Cazuza, a bisexual Brazilian composer, performer, and poet. The guy who designed the Titanic After the Titanic cruise liner was built, a reporter questioned him how safe the Titanic would be. His answer: "God, that's for you."
Cazuza had been inspired by one of his songs called "A Divine Mystery" to compose this poem. It's about how everyone is responsible for their own actions but not for those of others, something Jesus also taught in the Bible.
The Titanic was constructed in Belfast by Christians who were also employed by the Catholic and Protestant churches to show their support for both institutions. They supported each other in times like these when there were many conflicts between them. The ship was supposed to be a floating hotel where rich people could travel in comfort and peace away from land because war had broken out recently between England and France over control of Africa. But it is known today as the "Ship of Death" because it is believed that God punished some people for their sins by causing them to perish in the iceberg.
Some critics say that this event was just an excuse for Christian conservatives to attack homosexuals because the ship belonged to a wealthy man who was likely gay.

Alighieri, Dante Aligheri (1265-1321) was an Italian poet and politician. He is best known for his threefold vision of hell, purgatory, and paradise in his poem Inferno, which describes the sins of the human spirit.
Dante's work pre-dating Milton's by about fifteen years brought him fame during his own time and has never been eclipsed since then. The Divine Comedy has been influential to writers from William Shakespeare to James Joyce.
Dante was born in Florence but grew up in Lombardy, where his father had been appointed governor. When he was still a young man, his father died, leaving him with little money nor influence in political life. Heartbroken, Dante left Italy for London, where he joined the Church.
He returned to Florence in 1306 and became involved in politics. He helped to bring about a peace agreement between Italy and England and was made a member of the government council. But the corruption behind the scenes disgusted him and he resigned after only a few months.
According to Greek historian Plutarch, Pan died during the time of Roman Emperor Tiberius (A.D. 14–37). According to legend, an Egyptian sailor named Thamus was sailing to Italy when a "divine" voice called out over the ocean, "The Great God Pan is dead!"
Thamus responded by throwing his spear into the sea, where it hit something soft. When he looked closer, he saw that it was Pan who had been killed. Thereafter, everyone who threw a spear into the sea received permission from Thamus to take home some of Pan's flesh. The Romans agreed to this treaty with Egypt because they needed more food than usual. However, some historians believe that Pan actually survived this encounter.
Several years later, in A.D. 30, Emperor Tiberius ordered that all gods should be destroyed that were not recognized by the Senate. Because Pan did not have any temples or priests of his own, he was included on this list. After hearing this news, several people brought pieces of Pan's body to Tiberius, hoping that he would honor them by having them hung on walls or placed in temples. But because Pan had no family, no one came forward to claim him so he was thrown into a trash dump and burned alive.
This story is also told by the Greeks as part of their history of Rome.
Lucian, Greek Lucianos, Latin Lucianus (born ad 120 in Samosata, Commagene, Syria [now Samsat, Tur.] —died after 180 in Athens [Greece]), ancient Greek rhetorician, pamphleteer, and satirist. He is best known for his satirical writings, which include a series of 12 books of anecdotes, quotations, and comments on society and culture. The first nine books are attributed to him but the last three are probably by others.
His attacks on Christianity are humorous but also contain elements of truth about the hypocrisy of its followers. He claims that many Christians were even willing to sacrifice their own lives rather than accept death as an alternative to worshipping Christ. This statement is certainly true of many people today who claim to be Christian but who actually follow a different religion.
Although he was not baptized, nor did he ever attend church, many churches have monuments or statues dedicated to him.
He wrote several other works, some of which deal with philosophy and science but most of which are devoted to politics and society. He had been a pupil at Athens of both Apollonius of Tyana and Antigonus of Sokhoim, and it was through them that he became acquainted with many philosophers and scholars of the day. His style is elegant and clear and he often uses actual events as examples to explain philosophical concepts.
