Fake pastors are getting a lot more attention these days. Celebs are speaking out against them and hopefully opening the eyes of poor people who are taken in by charismatic preachers. Loyiso Bala took to social media to ask why pastors need hype men.
South African musician, Loyiso Bala, spoke up about fake pastors and the way they operate.
He doesn't get why pastors need hype men when they're preaching in church, and took to social media to pose questions:
When did some pastors start having a hype man on another mic while they preach?! Com’on church... Isn’t the word of God strong enough to stand on its own?
Is it even the word of God that you’re preaching that it needs other antics to make it impactful?
These hype men sit in the front of the church and shout words like "Jesus!" and "Man of God" while the pastor preaches.
Loyiso is a director at the Trinity Broadcasting Network, and it is clearly important to him that pastors give people the word of God, not use their desperation to score from them.
He's not the only celeb who is tired of fake pastors who take advantage of South Africans.
Sports presenter Andile Ncube recently slammed these prophets and called them thugs that are pretending to be men of God.
Briefly.co.za reported that TV presenter Thabiso Sithole shared a video of Bishop Dudu J. Comfort, who told his church that they would die very quickly if they did not obey his order to give all their money to God, according to a report by TimesLIVE.
This had Andile very angry, and he had this to say:
In 2019 the bible is used as a weapon worse than a gun by thugs masquerading as prophets and pastors.
2019 the cross is diamond studded and a symbol of greed and opportunity for crooks to clean out the desperate and vulnerable.
We hope that people will think twice before simply giving their hard-earned money away.
