Pulse List: 7 shocking things that happen in churches play

Reportedly, Prophet Mbonye's members kiss his shoes to get the blessings due to the pastor's claim that he has walked through heaven.


Churches are regarded as holy places of worships. Sadly, this does not stop shocking things from happening here.

Here is a list of weird, sometimes harmful and downright hilarious things that take place in churches.

Flogging your enemies

Apparently, people go to church not to pray or worship God but to ‘flog their enemies.’

On Friday, April 6, 2018, an Instagram clip showed congregants of an unknown church hitting the floor aggressively. They were led by a female pastor.

Unfortunately, this is not the first time we have seen this happen in a church. In 2017, a pastor asked his congregants to bring kobokos so they could flog the devil.


Bowing before your G.O’s chair

In November, 2017, an interesting video surfaced on Facebook. It showed people bowing, kneeling and touching a chair that allegedly belongs to the General Overseer of the Redeemed Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Adeboye.



It earned a reaction from an increasingly popular religious critic, Daddy Freeze, who said, “This is not faith or worship, this is fuckery.”

Masturbating in church

In an attempt to bring Heaven to earth, Pastor Penuel Mnguni of End Times Disciples Ministries asked his congregation to “undress in church and start masturbating until they reached orgasms.”

He said the “holy fluid of masturbation would produce a sacrosanct fluid which would make the church floor as sacred as heaven.” Surprisingly, the congregation obeyed.

Eating snakes

Imagine going to church to receive the Word of God and you get an order to eat snakes instead.

In 2015, Penuel Mnguni of End Times Disciples Ministries picked a snake, ‘turned’ it to chocolate, and ordering his members to eat it, which they did without hesitation.

Getting sprayed with insecticides

In the Catholic church, you are sprayed with Holy water. In some other churches, you are ‘blessed’ with insecticide.

In 2016, Prophet Lethebo Rabalago used Doom, a harmful insecticide, on his church members. The goal was to heal them of cancer, HIV, and so on.

He continued despite warnings from Tiger Brands company, the makers of Doom.

Receiving healing kisses

The General Overseer of Kingdom Prayer Ministry International, Prophet Nana Poku taught the world something new.

Apparently, they have healing powers which were displayed when he kissed out an unknown ailment from a lady, while the church members said,  “Yes, Lord!”


The kiss was accompanied by this statement — “By the power of the Holy Spirit, God is working here.”

Drinking kerosene

In 2017, Pastor Light Monyeki reportedly asked his church members to drink kerosene. This was to ‘show forth their faith’ while healing them of all infections and illnesses.

As you can imagine, this earned his members a trip to the hospital.
