A South African cleric, Prophet Rufus Phala has come into the ‘limelight’ after a photo of him making his congregants drink disinfectant made its rounds online.
Phala, seemingly irrespective of the harmful nature of drinking disinfectant, reportedly makes his congregants drink the disinfectant, promising them that it will heal them of all illnesses.
“I know the disinfectant is harmful, but God instructed me to use it. I was the first one to drink it,” he claimed.
The pastor from AK Spiritual Christian Church in Makgodu, Limpopo claims that he has received positive feedback from some of the recipients of the unique healing method with most of them testifying to have been healed after drinking the disinfectant.
Experts have revealed that ingestion of the disinfectant could cause respiratory related complications such as pneumonia and even cardio respiratory arrest.
This comes just a few weeks after South African pastor Lethabo Rabalago’s doom-spraying service photos emerged.
Rabalago too reported to believe in the healing properties of doom, claiming that it could heal terminal illnesses such as HIV/AIDS and Cancer.
Rabalago was supported by another South African pastor Penuel Mnguni of End Times Disciples Ministries in Soshanguve, with Mnguni saying that he saw nothing wrong with Rabalago’s actions.
“I confirm that this is total demonstration of God’s power. I don’t see an error; I see the manifestation of God’s word. We are not pastors who will join the world and fight against the mystery of God. As long as we are here, we will stand for this mystery, no one will stop it because we hear from God not from any religious acts. My brother Prophet Lethebo, be strengthened. Go forward with the work of the Father. Do not go back, go on! To God be the glory!” said Mr Mnguni.
Doom manufacturer, Tiger Brands, condemned Rabalago’s actions saying citing the harmful nature of the insecticide.
