Pastors all over the world keep scamming and extorting people in the name of miracles. These lies and deceit are prevalent in Africa, no thanks to hunger, poverty and under/mis-education.
When I saw the video of the woman performing drama called miracle, I knew it was another scam. Her hand appeared shortened with head of flesh gathered around her ‘upper’ arm. The Pastor, dramatically spewed rubbish, moving left to right to con the carried away audience. She stretched her hand till the heap of flesh leveled and her hand ‘became normal’ to the glory of Jesus.
It did not take a long time before other videos of this woman surfaced on the internet. The same heaped flesh, shortened hand, and of course, getting healed. As at now, we have seen five different videos of the woman in different churches and in an open gathering.
Pastor Chris Okafor, the Leader and Founder of Liberation and Miracle Ministry is the most dramatic in the so called healing process or miracle session. He claimed the woman’s plight was caused by witchcraft and ‘Jesus will do it’. After the miracle, he knelt down thanking Jesus for a miracle that was not. Unfortunately, his sheep would still defend him. Liberation or LIE-BE-RA-TION Ministry?
Well, as at now, our guess is that the woman is suffering from Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, a group of disorders that affect connective tissues supporting the skin, bones, blood vessels, and many other organs and tissues. People with this condition have overly flexible joints and stretchy skin. Read more about EDS here
The Bible says,
For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves”
Today, Christians, especially in Africa, keep running after these pastors who claim to perform miracles. The same who get exploited, while the Pastor gathers cars and private jets.
If they are not drinking water from bad plumbing taken for weeping statue of Jesus in Mumbai, they are eating grass in South Africa, a cross of Jesus would be appearing in Nasarawa or someone giving birth to a Bible.
Hopefully, these Pastors would lose half if not all of their members. It is unfortunate that they are dogmatic and could be easily brain washed and manipulated. Christians really need to start thinking and free themselves from the bondage of liars and deceptive people in guise of Pastors and Prophets.
