- A video posted on Facebook Thursday has taken social media by storm
- It shows an angry man preaching to citizens near a mall about 'fake' pastors
- However, although people praised him for preachign the truth, other pastors slammed the unknown man over his "language"
The 'pastor' appears to be shouting at those listening to him at a mall in Tembisa, and although other pastors in the area slammed him for the tone he used, residents praised him for preaching the truth.
Speaking in Zulu, the man, who is believed to be a pastor, spoke out against preachers and prophets who exploit people's faith for personal gain.
He is heard in the video warning people to be cautious of those who claim they were healed from HIV after a pastor treated them with 'holy water', adding "there is no way water will heal you of HIV".
The man, who the people dubbed "The lashing pastor", said by failing Vitim to the fake religious leaders' gimmicks, people distance themselves from God.
“We have distanced ourselves from God and placed our trust in fake pastors,” he said, adding, “Girls buy T-shirts belonging to the church, but still they perform adultery. The boys even lift it up to do what they want to do while she is wearing it".
The Daily Sun reported he then continued by slamming those who rely on television for their religious life.
“What happens if electricity goes off while they are still receiving? Does that mean Jesus has also left?” he asked
The preacher then told those who listened all they needed was to come to Jesus and give Him their hearts, yet people search for Him in holy water.
“But today when people want God, they look for him in holy waters. God is not a Russian, he doesn’t stay in oil,” he said.
Briefly.co.za learned the other Tembisa pastors are not happy with the way he spoke to the people, and added he is not a pastor from the area.
“This is not a pastor from this area. He may not even be a pastor by profession judging by the language he uses,” said Pastor David Masondo from Tembisa.
