"People who still go to church in 2019 need to get their minds checked..."
"As long as they don't study the Bible, they will all be treated like this. This foolishness is clearly stated in the Bible."
"It’s situations like this that makes us look crazy as Christians. We should be bowing down in adoration of God, not men of this world."
"It is a robbery scene, the pastor is there to take their money..."
"It's no longer funny yazi. This is getting too much for my liking now. #Exodus 20:5 Don't bow down to idols... #Mathew 23:9 And do not call anyone on earth 'father,' for you have one Father, and he is in Heaven. Kanti, which Bible do many people read?"
"When it comes to certain things, a sjambok is needed."
"God says, 'My people perish for lack of knowledge'."
"I am so angry."
