Video:Pastor who forced followers to eat grass now asks them to drink petrol
A controversial South African pastor, infamous for making his congregation eat grass, has struck again, this time encouraging members of his church to drink the petrol that he miraculously turned into pineapple juice.
Pastor Lesego Daniel of Rabboni Centre Ministries is on a YouTube video that starts with a cautionary note, “Warning, the level of the anointing is not the same, if you cannot turn water into wine, please do not try this.”
The clip starts with a demo on faith where Luke 1:37, that says nothing is impossible with God, is quoted. In the demo, a match is used to show that the fluid filling a bowl is really petrol. After the demo members of Daniel’s congregation are seen drinking what he claims is petrol, saying it tastes as sweet as pineapple juice and Iron Brew.
Members of the congregation are seen desperately clamouring to drink the petrol as the pastor preaches and encourages them. According to healthline.com, petrol is dangerous because it is poisonous. Exposure to it either through physical contact or inhalation can cause health problems such as abdominal pain, vision loss and burning in the oesophagus.
It also causes dizziness, extreme fatigue, convulsions, body weakness and unconsciousness, which members of the congregation appear to display in the video.
