Desperation for miracles, healing and solutions to problems is gradually leading a lot of gullible people to doing some of the most ridiculous things. What is more surprising is, those who normally lead people into these downgrading acts mask themselves as “men of God.”
The economic situation in the many African countries, the desperation to get married and have children, the need for healing and the thirst for quick money have made people preys of some of these so called pastors.
When it comes to religion, people (especially Africans), tend to easily discard their rationality. They would do whatever they are ordered by their pastor no matter how ridiculous.
If your pastor asks you to do any of the follow 5 things, please run for your life!
1. Fall asleep in the freezer
A South African based pastor has become famous for his methods of deliverance like asking congregants to do absurd things like eating grass and hair. Recently, he is said to have commanded a woman to enter inside a deep freezer that was on a high freezing point and ordered her to fall into deep sleep. Thirty minutes later, he opened the freezer and asked the woman to come out. When she was asked how she felt, she said refrigerator was very hot although the fridge was on.
2. Sucking demons out
One Kenyan-based Nigerian pastor, who goes by the name Pastor Chijioke, admitted that he ‘delivers’ women by sucking their breasts. He said he sucks the ‘demons’ their breasts. Ironically, the name of his church is ‘Breast and Honey Harvest Church’, which according to him was chosen because ‘the spirit lies in the breast of a lady; the more you suck the breast the more you get the fulfilling of the Lord.” When did demons start residing in breasts and why is only that of women?
3. Ditch your bras and pants
A pastor, described only as Rev. Njohi, asked his female congregants at the Lord’s Propeller Redemption Church in Dandora to come for Sunday’s service without any underwear “in order to be closer to God” and so “God can enter their bodies.” But why only women though?
4. Get naked for total healing
A young pastor in Pretoria made his congregation strip during a weeknight service. After they were done stripping, he sat on top of them and prayed for them. Now who knew you’d get total healing by getting naked in church?
5. Strip naked for pastor to plant a holy kiss
Single women of a church in the Caribbean were reportedly taken to the beach by their pastor. He asked them to get naked and bend over so he could plant a “holy kiss” on their butt. This ‘holy kiss’ was to enable them find their husbands. How gullible can one be?
