Apostle Khaya Maseko of The Salvation Church of the Revival of Faith, has condemned other pastors for living it up on the lap of luxury, while their followers wallow in poverty.

“Many pastors are concerned about their own images and how they are worshipped by adherents and never pay attention to their poverty and hunger.”

Maseko was speaking during a convocation held at the Mew Way last Sunday.

“When I read the Bible, I hear the Word of God saying: Drive out the demons, chase out the demons ... It doesn’t say a man of God must make a show, while people are suffering. People are being tormented by evil spirits and these pastors are busy with shows in church. They do funny things because they want congregants to look at them as great people,” said Maseko.

He was addressing about 3000 Christians, and went on to say when people go to church they should not be driven by the fame of a particular pastor, but by the need to connect with G-d first.

“The Bible teaches us that the power of G-d is hidden in the hands of G-d and not the hands of men,” he said to roaring approval from the crowd.

Christianity in South Africa has come under intense scrutiny in the recent past after the men of the cloth convinced their followers to eat grass, drink petrol and sprayed them with the domestic insecticide called doom. All the while claiming to heal ailments, woes and tribulations.

Maseko warned Christians gathered at the centre to be wary of pastors who sought their own glory outside of G-d.

“If pastor seek glory in this manner, its a red flag for Christian followers. If you come to church today because of me, you are at a wrong place, you must only go to church to worship G-d and not a human being,” he added. Amahle Sizani,39, from from Grabouw said the message was true and factual.
