Wonders shall never end! Congregates of Mount Zion General Assembly went home with heads down this Sunday after a failed demonstration of power by the church pastor when a girl fainted after he put a heavy speaker on top of her, promising her that she would not feel pain.
Sadly, the lady has died from internal injuries caused to her lungs during the “miracle”.
Pastor Lethebo Rabalango [not real names] had organised a night of worship at his church where he was teaching about demonstration of power in which he emphasised that if Jesus walked on water, he too could do anything with faith.
It is on this point that he invited a girl from the praise team and asked her to lie down. He then ordered Ushers to carry a big speaker and put on her stomach saying the weight would not harm her. As if it was not enough, Pastor Lethabo climbed on top of the speaker, adding pressure to suffocate the girl who remained quite for she had already passed out.
After seating on top of the speaker which was still on the girl’s stomach for close 5 minutes, he got up and ordered removal of the speaker, but the girl could not rise because she had fainted. It took some elders giving her first aid treatment that she came back but complained of a broken rib.
She was then taken to hospital where she later passed on.
However, Pastor Lethabo blamed the girl and accused her of having little faith for she could not withstand a very simple task.
