Yikes! Pastor spotted using a snake for deliverance during church service

These days, people have begun to mistake extremism for religion. In other words, to prove the power of God, some clerics go to the extreme by putting some of their followers into serious danger.

Due to this believe in faith, many of the followers fall victim and become scapegoats in the men of God's so called miracle.

Here is another story about a pastor using a snake to do deliverance. A young man identified simply as Zwide on Twitter shared the photos of the pastor holding the snake at the altar of his church.
