It is sad to see how gimmicks have taken over in religion. Instead of preaching the gospel, some weird antics have taken over in churches across the country and they managed to raise eyebrows on social media.
On Wednesday, a video was posted on social media which showed a pastor calling his 'sheep'. However, the religious leader apparently did not mean it figuratively - the church members came crawling on all fours.
The video was shared by Twitter parody account, Man's Not Barry Roux, who captioned it:
"Just when I thought I have seen/heard all and then boom."
Briefly.co.za gathered social media users were stunned over the congregation's 'sheepish' behaviour and they gave their two cents' worth on the matter.
Sthembiso Dube, who goes by the Twitter handle @InfoSthembiso, commented: "something is wrong in our continent where people are being enslaved in the name of religion."
Social media user @FChineti, wrote: "Brain washed people after that they are going to rob kill people in the suburbs saying they took our jobs they must go back to their countries really???"
Buhle Madolwana, @mbuhles, added: "Africans are busy with this nonsense instead of improving our lives and living conditions."
