This is not a ghost story, but this is the fact that a cockroach can stir up and running more than one week even though his head is cut. Live without a head may also occur in the lives of believers

Life without a Head

The word of head has a literal and figurative sense. Based on fact, the Head is the top of the human body that is more important. The role of this organ is the center of the mind and control of all members of the human body. Its figurative meaning is a figure or portrait, as in drawing of sculpture, metaphorical, symbolic; an example : he's the head of family or company
There is in fact that an insect called cockroach can life without its head. Scientific American.com reported that without its head, the body can still function in terms of very simple reactions. It could stand, react to touch and move. Amazingly body of cockroach can live for up to one week without its head, after that time getting dehydration and death. This is because its body breathes through something called spiracles that are found in each body segment; therefore, it can keep breathing without a head and a brain. Such as the life of a family or corporation without head will result no control, imbalance, disharmony even lead to the destruction or not survive any more.
In the Bible, the head (Hebrew: Ro's; Greek : Ke • fa • le ') is used with very prominent both literally and figuratively. Christ is head over all things, He is the head of the Church or community of believers; and this Church is considered as the body of which He is especially the head; and from Him, as the head, the Church receives light, life, and intelligence. He lived with the church, filling the church with HIS life and organize the church spiritually (see Eph 1:22-23). In fact, we can read a bad news, there are some churches became supermarket, coffee shop etc. Such as the former of Methodist Church became a Tesco supermarket. in Westbourne. From the outside it still looks like the church it used to be. Inside, however, the stained glass windows that once inspired worshippers now look down incongruously on shelves of cigarettes, alcohol and food. Even buy a lottery ticket.

Some supposed that the convenience of being able to buy their bread a few miles closer is more important than prayer and religion. I do understand that the church was just physically a building but it was very sad spiritually. The church as a body of Christ might be have lost its head, no communion with God, its lust of the flash is more important than prayer and communion of believers in God.

Nowadays, I am worry of myself as a believer who lives without head as well as a cockroach. I may lack of prayer, not close spiritual unity with God. I believe that God promised to always help believers but my life full of anxiety. So I am personally cutting my head off and leaving Christ and really contributing the death of the church

Some people may be scary even it is disgusting. For scientists, it is interesting to be learned.

I feel more scared when I see a head going around without any body.

When people talk without any substance, it is wiser to avoid any conversation with that person.

Nice article Yon Maryono.
