We live in an era where it is said that many pastors exploit worshippers for material gains, so it is difficult separating the real men of God from the charlatans.
A case which sprung up in South Africa in 2020, involves one Prophet Paseka Motsoeneng, popularly known as Pastor Mboro who offered to go to hell and fight the demon responsible for the coronavirus pandemic.
His offer of a solution came at a time the virus caused a lockdown and infections were rising rapidly across the world.
The pastor demanded the sum of $100,000 in order to embark on the dangerous journey and save mankind only for a sum.
According to Mboro, the money was meant to cover his transport logistics. He said there was no need to waste money on research as the real cause of the disease that infected thousands of people and caused many deaths is a demon in hell which he has volunteered to kill.
He said; “I am ready to save mankind. I have seen a vision of how the Coronavirus demon looks like and I will defeat it.”
Motsoeneng added; “There is no need for worry and expensive research, the real problem is the demon causing this disease and I am ready to kill it once and for all”.
The clergyman gave an ultimatum saying the money should come no later than the second week in April 2020.
Similarly, in 2017, the controversial pastor was alleged to have charged his church members 5,000 rands during an Easter church service, to view pictures he allegedly took with his mobile device when he was in heaven.
