Pastors’ actions disturbing

2016-12-14 06:03

I CANNOT help but be sad at what I have been seeing in the media recently pertaining to the pastors or preachers who are making people do things that are downright disturbing.

These charismatic churches often involve robbery of the people, specifically vulnerable women. Many men also fall victim to the scams of these thugs who hide behind the name of the Lord.

I was raised a Christian and part of me still believes that I am, although a lot has happened to shake my belief. The saddest part of all of this is the fact that these so-called pastors are prevalent in black communities. Is it a case of us black people being more gullible or is it a deeper sign of how desperate we have become for quick fixes? These pastors come not only with promises of marriage, money and success, they make their followers drink petrol, eat grass and more recently, people are now being sprayed with Doom.

How far do things need to go before a community wakes up and realises that they are being scammed?

Some of the women, who are in the majority in these churches, have been fondled and some have slept with these pastors under the guise of the pastor inserting the Holy Spirit in them.

It is truly a sad state of affairs and with all that is going on in our communities we truly do not need to be wasting our energies and time following these fake pastors.

The so-called end of the world cannot come soon enough for some of us so that these fake pastors can answer for all they have done against people who are trying to find something to hold on to in a hopeless world. #fake pastors must fall.
