A South African preacher made his congregation eat grass to ‘be closer to God’ before stamping on them. Under the instruction of Pastor Lesego Daniel of Rabboni Centre Ministries dozens of followers dropped to the floor to eat the grass at his ministry in Garankuwa, north of Pretoria after being told it will ‘bring them closer to God.’ His controversial methods have drawn criticism from thousands of people although members of his congregation swear by his methods – he is said to have claimed that humans can eat anything to feed their bodies and survive on whatever they choose to eat.
That’s insane. It’s ridiculous. And it has no foundation in either scripture or theology. Why, oh why, do Christians tolerate such false teachers? Are they really so ignorant that they’ll follow anyone who says anything, no matter how absurd? If so, they need an intervention. [HT to Michael Acidri for mentioning the absurdity on FB].
