Full Title: 'Yes We Eat Grass and We're Proud of It,' Say Congregants Who Were Convinced by 'Miracle' Working Preacher
Pastor Puts People to Sleep and Says If Cops Come to Arrest Him He Can Make Them Sleep Too
Despite growing outrage over a popular "miracle" working South African pastor who convinced members of his church to eat grass, members who have followed his command say the grass has given them strength and healing.
"Yes, we eat grass and we're proud of it because it demonstrates that, with God's power, we can do anything," said 21-year-old law student Rosemary Phetha and member of Pastor Lesego Daniel's Rabboni Centre Ministries in South Africa in a Times Live report.
Phetha said for more than a year she struggled with a sore throat that only healed after Daniel "turned me into a sheep and instructed me to eat grass."
Another member, 27-year-old Doreen Kgatle, who suffered a stroke two years ago that left her unable to walk said the grass made her walk again.
"I could not walk but soon after eating the grass, as the pastor had ordered, I started gaining strength and an hour later I could walk again," said Kgatle.
Pastor Daniel, dubbed the "miracle man," has been attracting people from all over South Africa to his 1,000-member church by unleashing spellbind acts like commanding people to sleep and awake at will.
This wasn’t the same guy who claimed to his congregation that he could walk on water just like Jesus (and then promptly drowned in the attempt)?
Maybe this congregation plans to get into the dairy business
How is this glorifying God?
Was just telling the wife earlier today that I prefer my veggies second hand.
Let me think about it for a second
signs and false wonders never do.
'Pastor Lesego Daniel (with mic) of South Africa's Rabboni Centre Ministries walks on congregants he commanded to go to sleep.'
I’ve never understood those Methodists.
“Oh Africa, Brave Africa...it was a laugh riot.”
The rationale used to legitimize "grass" in some States lately ...
How long until they’re forced to drink “Kool-Aid”?
Beats the Mooslimbs looking to cut heads off.
Pray America is Waking
It’s the devil dressed as a sheep laughing at the fools.falling for his lies.
There, fixed it. (or at least that was what my brain first told me...:)
That’s some nice grass.
Cheaper than a lawnmower, I guess.
Humans aren’t evolved to eat grass. This is gross.
Without looking at the caption, at first glance that looked like a photo of the Jonestown congregation.
"What? Doesn't everybody do that?"
Exactly. The hoity toity vegans here in the US pay lots of money to get some wheat grass juice. And the folks in COlorado seem to be going out of there way to get grass some of which they will eat
Usually when see these sorts of things I ask “show it to me in the Bible!” Unfortunately it is! A king is struck mad and eats grass for 7 years.
Not sure what is going on here other than a test of faith, but is it in God or the Pastor? Who is the overseer of the Pastor, if any? What does he say?
Most of the people I know eat grass, even myself. Corn, wheat, rice, barley etc. And in the biological processed form of meat. Look up the term “All Food Is Grass” (it’s an Ag thing).
And this shocking thing is that this is for real.
preacher pimp preacher pimp ...ahh, I give up.
or the overseer of the pasture, do they pay rent to chomp his grass?
This is also all about the preacher and not about God.
I suspect their leader gets paid to have his flock keep the grass cut short.
Dan_4:33 “That same hour the judgment was fulfilled, and Nebuchadnezzar was driven from human society. He ate grass like a cow, and he was drenched with the dew of heaven. He lived this way until his hair was as long as eagles’ feathers and his nails were like birds’ claws.
Your a military doctor right? At the very least the grass is good ruffage. Eating grass is also good for getting up fur balls but that’s for cats.

I was wondering when someone was going to cite that verse!
My food poops on their food.
Any trips to Jonestown, Guyana, planned, I wonder???
FUR BALLS...ah, yes, I remember our wonderful Siamese cat, CHINO, and his fur balls.
He spit up all over my aunt Nora's fur stole when she and my uncle happened to be coming over for dinner that night. All the coats and stuff were on my parent's bed. That's were Chino did the deed.
Since this is not a Protestant Caucus Thread, can you tell me what protestant tradition this group belongs to. My guess is Pentecostal [again a guess] but I would rather one of you guys fill me in.
LOL cats are like that, all attitude especially Siamese cats. Ol’ CHINO was sending a message he either liked them or did not care for them upsetting his routine.
Seems like some type of neognostic Oneness Pentecostal heresy.
From their website:
The ministry is based on the manifestation of the Holy Spirit (the Word of God) and the Power ( proof by the Spirit that God is with us). This has encouraged members of the congregation and those following him on the daily Rabboni TV broadcast to worship God in truth and in spirit. As Christians, we must continue to impart higher wisdom of God which was once hidden from human understanding and is now revealed to us by God the wisdom which God devised and decreed before the ages for our glorification.
So now they’re ruminants?
Hey, they said it, don’t blame me, I didn’t write the article....
Where did you get the idea I was blaming you for anything Geron?
Ok, so it is a Oneness Pentecostal group. My theory would be it is likely unaffiliated with any lager body which means nobody will be able to keep this group from going off the rocker. Thanks
