WILL people ever learn?
After publishing several editorial comments warning congregants against fake church leaders, it appears we still have gullible people who entertain them.
The past decade or so has seen an influx of fake prophets preying on innocent souls.
Some congregants have been stripped of their identity while others are regretting ever joining their churches.
In 2014, a Gabonese evangelist drowned in a river in an attempt to replicate Jesus Christ by walking on water.
Members of his flock watched in disbelief when he took to the water.
Since they worshipped him more than God, they thought he would not drown.
For his actions, he is now history after he was swept away by the strong current.
Two years later, another pastor in Cape Town, South Africa drowned in the Umlazi River attempting the same miracle.
Back home, Trinity International Church leader, Apostle Ruramai Nhapata, is trending for her fake resurrection bid at a mortuary.
The daring church leader wrestled the mortuary attendants in a desperate bid to raise a man from the dead.
She claimed she had the power to raise him from the dead.
After overpowering the mortuary attendant, she raised the ire of the deceased’s relatives after the miracle flopped.
What riled the mourners was the fact that she didn’t attend the funeral wake.
Legally, she must be charged with disorderly conduct, which warrants an arrest.
The police should step in and arrest this moron for disorderly conduct.
Biblically, she sinned against God.
Her case was prophesied in the Bible that people should be aware of false prophecies.
Being a church leader, she soiled her image as a fake prophet.
As a mother and influential community builder, she has lost the faith of those who look up to her.
It’s a shame that Apostle Nhapata has exposed herself as a fake church leader without any power.
She needs to repent and be saved.
The disgraced church leader should make a public apology to the deceased family, nation, funeral parlour and her congregants.
As Zimbabweans, we should not be embarrassed by these lunatics masquerading as church leaders.
Fake prophets and church leaders should be arrested.
Laws protecting congregants against these crooks should be enacted for the church to maintain its reputation.
Church leaders remain crucial in life for the important roles they are supposed to perform.
However, it becomes a cause for concern when we continue to be hoodwinked by these morons pretending to be church leaders.
It’s also high time that congregants wake up from their deep slumber.
As the people’s paper, we have been doing our best to try and make sure that we expose these people.
Let’s get rid of fake church leaders in our midst.
The prophets of shame should not be allowed to keep on taking congregants for a deadly ride.
