You think you have seen it all when it comes to pastor’s crude means of urging congregants to seek the kingdom of God, then another proves you wrong almost immediately.
The men of the God across Africa have been known to perform a number of heinous acts which they perceive as means to seek divine power but to a normal person, it doubles up as madness.
From taking on a sermon using snakes to asking congregants to wave their panties in the air like they just don’t care, African pastors particularly from Kenya, Zimbabwe and South Africa, have a knack for not only entertaining, but also raising serious questions to modern religion.
One pastor was at it again, only this time, authorities caught up with him since his stunt was not only outrageous, it also potentially cost congregants money.
The pastor from Zimbabwe became an online sensation when it emerged he was selling tickets to heaven to congregants who somehow felt they might not make the cut to the ‘promised land’.
According to online reports seen by Briefly.co.za, Pastor Tito Wats intended to sell each ticket to heaven for a whopping R6,700 to any gullible follower.
Police had to intervene and nab the pastor who claimed to have been personally informed by Jesus to offer heavy sinners a chance at salvation through the tickets.
“I don’t care what people or the police are saying about me, I am being persecuted because of doing the work of God. Jesus Christ appeared to me and gave me the tickets made of pure gold so that i can sell to people who want salvation,” he defended himself in an interview.
According to reports, the pastor was arrested alongside his wife after he outrageously told thousands of congregants about his peculiar 'encounter' with Jesus.
