South African pastor feeds church members engine oil
A prophet in South Africa, Prophet Theo Bongani Maseko of the Breath of Christ Ministries in Daveyton, has sparked outrage yet again after he made his church members drink engine oil.
According to him, it tastes like honey and drinking the oil demonstrates “the power of God”.Photographs of people drinking the fluid during church service were posted on his church’s Facebook page.
Maseko said no one needed to go to the hospital. This practice has however been condemned by South Africa’s Commission for Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Religious, Cultural and Linguistic Communities. Its Chairperson, Thoko Mkhwanazi-Xaluva, was livid at the latest incident.
She urged religious leaders to rally together and bring an end to what she described as “reckless” abuse of Christianity. “A lot of people are going to die one of these days; we are fortunate that has not happened. A lot of people’s lives are at risk here,” she said.
