A South African ‘pastor’ last week ordered his congregation to eat live snakes during church service, declaring that the reptiles will turn into chocolate in their stomachs.
Photos of the bizarre activity was posted by the ‘church’ – which calls itself End Times Disciples Ministries – on Facebook July 13 (above), with the caption, ‘Man of God declared a snake to become a chocolate (chomp) and the congregation ate it. We have authority to change everything into anything and it will obey because of our authority.’
The ‘man of God’ in question is 24-year old Penuel Mnguni, who was said to had earlier given a sermon about faith … and it is not the first time he has subjected his flock to do unnecessary, bizarre demonstrations of ‘power’.
This year alone, Mnguni was reported to have ordered his congregation to drink gasoline, promising that the toxic fuel will turn into Fanta Pineapple soft drink in their stomachs. Again, he also reportedly commanded his followers to take off their clothes so he could pray while sittingon their naked bodies.
To sum it up, Mnguni is the disciple of one ‘Prophet’ Lesego Daniel, the leader of ‘Rabboni Ministries,’ who once told his congregation to eat grass.
