Fake pastors and false prophets rock churches in South Africa – BBC Africa


Rape and fraud scandals involving fake pastors have prompted calls for regulation of churches in South Africa.

There have been a number of high- profile cases in recent months involving disgraced pastors and self-proclaimed prophets. President Cyril Ramaphosa has even got involved, urging South Africans to come together to curb bogus pastors.

Victims of alleged sexual abuse have detailed their experiences to the BBC and criticised the invulnerability of so-called men of God who use their position of authority as a cover for abuse.

  1. Prophet Bushiri came to Kenya last year, he prayed for my friend who had hiv for a long time, she got healed, upto today she is very healthy and healed, a kingdom divided cannot stand, miracles are happening coz JESUS CHRIST is still on the throne!!! Glory to His Name.

  2. Going into these churches is no different to the children of Israel going into the high places..its a backslidden practice that millions (especially black people) cannot stop practicing..”God dwelleth not in temples made with men’s hands” you’ve read it, time and time again, yet you STILL slap the scriptures AND GOD across the face..stiffen your necks, and worship man….and you wonder WHY these things happen to you?

    You deserve EVERYTHING you get while you’re going into what revelations describe as the ‘synagogues of satan’ and is the main reason by a far mile why (on the whole) black people across the globe do not prosper, and end up as servants and slaves for generations

    Black people (especially) cannot stop this evil backslidden practice of sacrificing their lives in this way, when Christ has already done it for mankind.

    You deserve everything coming your way..Repent NOW and go to the word of God DIRECTLY

    1JOHN 2v27
    Jeremiah 31v31-34
    Isaiah 51v2

    You really don’t need flesh and blood to teach you..your pastors are all IN THE WORD MADE OF THE WORD, and THEY will teach you
    THEN and only THEN will you become part of what the scriptures call…THE GREAT CONGREGATION!

    These man made churches are places that you physically walk into, but the true “House of the Lord” is made of the word..is incorruptible, never needs repair, and is something that your INNER BEING ‘flows into’ Isaiah 2v2

    What do you think Jesus was demonstrating to Peter James and John when he took them up the mountain?

    The mountain IS The Word of God…you’ve got it in your hand…Don’t think about building any more damn tabernacles as the disciples suggested
    Just go up the mountain, and meet with Abraham, Isaac, and all the prophets from Moses to Malachi…THEY are your teachers THEY are your pastors THEY are the prophets you should be looking for…NOT FLESHY CORRUPTIBLE MEN

    Just stop that backslidden practice immediately!

  3. Seek first the kingdom of heaven and all the rest will fall in line,hook the door of your room and pray to God in silence,read the Bible,we have a conversation with God through prayers knock it will open,seek you will find ask it will be given to you.

  4. When will BBC do a documentary on how shell, Britain and France are looting and milking Africa dry???? How much African leaders has in British and western banks?

  5. The Christian God Jesus is Satan the devil and he is not coming back… Christians worship Satan with a human sacrifice of Jesus to Satan… You’ve been deceived… repent accept Jahovah an do good works.

  6. Beautiful copper colored people you are the true children of Israel and we must leave Christianity and return to Yah our creator Levitus 26:40-45 because Yah has punished us and scattered us throughout the four corners of the earth because of our forefathers rebellion Deutoronomy 281-68

  7. This is what happens when you get rid of your spiritual traditions and get involved with a fake ass Jewish god that is not your god. You are subject to the curses that come with it. Africans should know better.

  8. SHE CALLED CHRISTIANITY "THIS THING"! 
    CHRISTIANITY IS THE LAW OF GOD. TRY TO REGULATE SOMETHING WHO IS ABOVE ALL? WHAT A FOOLISH STATEMENT! 

    7 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.

    8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.

    9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.

    10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

    11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

    Psalm 19.

    STOP BEING FOOLISH PEOPLE! IF YOU WANT/CLAIM TO BE A CHRISTIAN, START BY READING, STUDYING THE BIBLE TO ASSIMILATE THE CONTENT AND OBEY IT AND YOU WON’T BE DECEIVED. 

    THE SAME WORD IS WHAT WILL WARN AND GUARD YOU. BUT IF YOU ARE LAZY AND GREEDY FOR QUICK BLESSING WITHOUT EVEN KNOWING THE ONE WHO BLESS, YOU ARE AN EASY PREY. WE REAPS WHAT WE SOW! SAD BUT TRUE!
    BLESSING

  9. There are more fake preachers everywhere than real ones!! Its not just Africa!! Nobody needs the fake church’s all they need is God! HE is with any true believer! No church building needed!!

  10. GOD spoke but we don’t listen he said put not your trust in no man Jesus said to the disciples and was also speaking to the people greater things you to will do how do you do this by fasting and praying when I need anwser I go on my knees when I need a miracle I fast with no food or water and GOD anwsers me try it my brothers and sisters for your self and watch the Lord work in your like try it

  11. Some pastors will spray insecticides to members of his church so that devil will die. The whole thing is rubbish. You don’t need any one to take to God, we go to God by your conduct

  12. Everything can happen in Africa after all. Free sex, drugs, hungry African countries…. Abandoned children, poverty, foreign aid in flux and everything. It’s really difficult as an individual to trust Africans basically.
    Biggest and largest Dark Mission Field for the Gospel is Africa itself.

  13. People are very poor and seek for shortcuts to miracles,and the false prophets are having a party with all pre-meditated prophesies to fool the fools.

  14. Use discernment dear brothers and sisters! GOD does NOT want his annointed ones to drive fancy cars, drip with gold, live in mansions, etc. A TRUE ANNOINTED MINISTER OF GOD ALMIGHTY wants his flock to KNOW HIS Holy Word straight from the Holy Scriptures! Know these false prophets by THEIR WORKS! Pay CLOSE attention as there are MANY servants of satan posing as men of GOD ALMIGHTY so they can steal, rape, molest and do it while pretending to be annointed by GOD ALMIGHTY! Get in the Holy Scriptures and pray for understanding and to be filled with the Holy Spirit! GOD BLESS YOU ALL my brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ!

  15. These churches are wicked get out of them. They are not chosen by TMH. Stop praying to white Jesus he is not real. Yahawahsha is a hebrew man. He is of the tribe of Shem.

  16. THOKO MKHWANAZI-XALUVA you are cursed with the cursed of Jezebel for daring to call CHRISTIANITY "A THING" for whatever reason(s) cf 4:48 of video…LAODICEA is disgusting (Lukewarm) Revelation 3:16 sure but even Her Master who called Her disgusting will never call Her "A THING"

  17. Africans. Yall need to give the white man back his book ASAP

  18. 2 Corinthians 11:14,15 "And no marvel; for satan himself is transformed into an angel of light, therefore it is not great thing if his ministers be transformed as the ministers of righteousness." satan has his own behind the pulpits also.
    Search the scriptures whether the things they say are in the bible, or false doctrine. Acts 17:11

  19. So the churchanity show has reached So Africa. The sideshow is a spectacle snd if yoy pile in to view it you get everthing you purchase except TMHGOD ain’t got nothing to do wth it. Improper worship gibberish and all this laying of hands. GOD is the only ONE that performs miracles.

  20. Thank you all so much for knowing & calling them a fake one, because they are using the Name of God invain. But please don’t be discourage to follow God & believe me God will see us through & disgrace the evil fake one around. Please don’t give up in following God i begged you, this end time okay.

  21. The believers should read their bible to understand YOU ALONE CAN TALK TO GOD DIRECT AND GODS word in the bible says He hears,He listens and He answers prayers..not because some someone prayed for you NO NONONONO.your prayers are enough.pray pray pray .

  22. …the Bible says these things would happen, we pray for clarity and discernment…asking the government to regulate anything related to the church is disastrous…end days.

  23. Hold on South Africa the Holyspirit is not done let the Lord expose so he can make it right…the Last move of God is on the way the Holyspirit is going to pour Himself out upon all flesh….I believe The Lord Jesus will regulate this stand in faith that He is moving…thank you Jesus

  24. Onkruit groeid tussen Het tarwen,tovernaars kwakzalvers gebed genezers,bidden doe je zelf naar GOD vraag Hem om hulp ,niet alle mensen zullen direct worden beholpen maar u gebed is wel gehoord.CHRIST.

  25. All Fake Pastors, Prophets, Whoever it is will give Account to the Master . No one gets away with lying on God.

  26. We don’t know much about your country but these kinds of things happen all over the world, We really don’t know if it is only a blamed or is it true, because too many religious beliefs of the country can cause jealousy among them and try to ruin one another. ,the truth is that, this is the work of the devil’s through his followers,so be careful before spreading any thing if you do not have true evidence or see with your own eyes.
