A South African cleric, Pastor Christ Penelope is being accused of sitting on his members and farting in their mouths all in the name of receiving the presence of the holy spirit, aso Naija reports.
The General Overseer of SevenFold Holy Spirit Ministries in Siyandani Village in Giyani, Limpopo, has stirred up controversy on social media over the bizarre act on the altar.
But, according to The Daily Sun, the pastor has upheld his actions by saying:
“The people saying all those things weren’t true. They hear of things and believe them.”
According to him, what he does is ‘not by flesh but by faith’, noting that when he sits or stands on top of his followers, they do not feel any pain as the Holy Spirit is in charge.
On Facebook he shared:
“This is to tell the doubters that we did not do it by mistake, and we’re not repenting. We’re not going to be intimidated. The body is the church and the head is Christ. You expect me to go and sit on the church? I must come directly to the head and sit on it.”
According to two unspecified sources from the church, many people didn’t find the pastor’s actions disturbing, but they didn’t feel happy afterward.
One man told The Daily Sun:
“When we come to church it’s because we need prayers, not to be farted on. What the pastor has been doing isn’t right.”
