Fake pastors make women vulnerable

2018-05-09 06:01

What is wrong with us South African women? When will we learn? How will we learn? But the writing is on the wall.

Why have we given into being the receiving bowl to such an extend that we allow foreign activities to strip our dignity?

We continue to become victims of satanic and sodomising acts by so-called pastors, but we continue to flock to each gathering and every new church tent that is being set up.

I have ended up looking the other way whenever someone introduces himself as a pastor. It makes me sick that every Jack and Jill turn into a pastor overnight.

It has come to my attention that the success of these new churches, led by fake pastors, relies on women, as we support them physically and financially while our children suffer.

I was deeply disturbed by a recent social media post stating how a pastor was reported to have personally taken off a woman’s underwear in front of the whole congregation.

According to the post, with a picture attached, he ordered her to open her legs wide for the spirit of pregnancy to enter her.

We all know this is not the first incident concerning pastors surrounded by controversy.

We allow these fake pastors to let us eat snakes, drink paraffin and now undress, forgetting that we are wives and girlfriends.

Someone commented on the story by writing that: “The worst part is that these pastors are foreigners. There is a joke that a son told his father, ‘We are struggling whilst you are sitting at home. Why can’t you go to South Africa and become a pastor?’ That’s how stupid we are, believing in each and every thing that comes our way.”

However, women – old and young – continue to give themselves to these pastors, instead of giving themselves to the Lord. In the process, some of them are losing their hard-earned cash and lifetime savings.

These churches are crowding our communities to such an extend that even the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities (CLR) loses its pace in bringing the fake pastors to book.

Whenever there is a new church set up, the majority of the congregation is guaranteed to be women. We end up leading our children and husbands to these churches, which later shame us.

The worst part is that we tend to keep quiet when these opportunists, who call themselves men of God, abuse us through making us believe that speaking up is a sin.

How can you allow a pastor to touch you in­appropriately and still believe it is the right thing in the eyes of the Lord?

There is no holiness in that. God will not see it as the right thing to instill the Holy Spirit in you by messing with your body.

What makes you think that giving yourself to them will make you the first lady in the church? These pastors move from one town to the other, leaving a trail of controversy behind.

I am crying out to women to look, learn and listen: The world out there is devious.
