This controversial pastor has been slammed for having his followers eat millipedes and drink beer believing they can become the body and blood of Jesus Christ.
South African Pastor Lesego Daniel of the Rabboni Centre Ministry made global headlines for making his followers eat gas and drink petrol and is making waves again after making believers eat millipedes and drink beer.
According to the pastor, God has given man everything on earth as food and any food man prays on can become the body and blood of Jesus Christ and can be consumed as the Last Supper.
Daniel added: “Creation wait no more, whatever we touch is blessed, whether it’s chicken, millipede, borers, waffles, etc., we sanctify and consecrate it by the word of God and prayer and we declare it to be the body and the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
The controversial preacher made international headlines in 2014 when he was photographed persuading followers to eat grass at his ministry, after which a video of a ceremony was released in which he made his followers drink petrol.
Rabboni Centre Ministries has more then 90000 followers on Facebook but many netizens have slammed the controversial pastor.
Neitzen ‘Ade White Ireland’ wrote: “Everyone is doing something so that can notice them on social media…when you’re craving for attention seriously, just pour in the church , or mosque, press will carry the news straight.”
And ‘OfficialDiamo14’ added: “Controversial Pastor, Lesego Daniel is in the news again for feeding his church members with millipede and beer.”
