The congregation could be heard gasping in shock at what they had just witnessed, as the pastor tried to explain exactly how God would do the same to imprint his DNA on them.
Netizens stunned by spectacle
Many on social media also shared their disbelief at the pastor's actions during the sermon, with some labelling it ridiculous.
Here are some of the reactions:
Mike Todd offers apology
After the overwhelming reaction online, Todd offered an apology through an Instagram video, noting that after rewatching it he thought it was also disgusting.
He said that it was a distraction from what he was trying to do, but admitted that he had crossed the line and sent his love to those who showed him support.
He urged those who only saw the short 'spit clip' to go back and watch the whole message to understand the meaning.
Pastor sits on congregants face
In another weird church story, a pastor left many stunned after breaking wind on his congregants' faces.
Pastor Christ Penelope from Giyani, Limpopo, went viral in April 2021 after a snap of him sitting on one of his congregant's faces and letting off the gas to supposedly heal the person was shared online.
In a past interview, Penelope explained that the only way to impart his amazing and godsent healing powers is bypassing flatulence as close to a person's nose as possible.
According to an article by Drum magazine, Pastor Penelope first puts his congregants into a deep sleep before he imparts his "healing farts".
