The Church Suffers Another Ridicule As South African Pastor Is Alleged To Have Staged Fake Resurrection In Church
“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”
This is being played out in South Africa’s Alleluia Ministries International, in a stage managed stunt that has earned the presiding prophet the identity of a caricature on social media. Social media users have vented their anger on and mocked Prophet Alph N Lukau, the founder and General Overseer of Alleluia Ministries International, South Africa, because he allegedly brought back to life a man said to have been dead for three days during church service on Sunday.
The pastor in the eye of the storm had claimed that the ‘deceased man’ had died on Friday and had been deposited at the mortuary from where he was brought to the church in a coffin on Sunday for the “miracle” where he (Prophet Alph N. Luau) raised him (the deceased) from the dead.
Online users who believe the miracle was “staged”, are now participating in trending ‘Dead man challenge’/’resurrection challenge’ on social media.
The South Africa government is not taking this claim lying down, the CRL Commission (Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities) has revealed that it will commence investigation on the alleged resurrection.
In the video causing widespread anger and even amusement among South Africans, pastor Alph Lukau from Alleluia International Ministries in Sandton can be seen touching a young man lying in a casket, then the supposed dead man rises up while a bewildered congregants look on.
The South African government under the CRL Commission has vowed to look into the alleged resurrection case and take necessary actions, this was made known by the commission’s deputy chair David Mosoma.
“As a commission we need to get to the root of this. Unless we do that, South Africans are taken for a ride and their intelligence is insulted.”
