An unfaithful man dared to take his mistress to church while his wife was also there with their kids. But he never expected the pastor to call him out in front of the entire congregation to make him choose between the two women.
taken in Zimbabwe shows how the founder of United Family International Church (UFIC), Emmanuel Makandiwa, makes uses of his authority as “man of God” to call out a sinful man for cheating on his wife.
In the clip, the pastor is seen professing to a woman that’s holding a child in arms, as he reveals he has seen her before. The man then tells the crowd the woman is married and states that her husband was also in the church. But he was not alone.
Walking around the place, the pastor gives the husband the chance to come out of his own, and when the man appears in front of him, the pastor says “you have saved your life, my brother.” The ashamed husband confirms he has a companion, as the crowd claps and murmurs about his indecency.
Then, the mistress in question comes out on her own too and kneels before the pastor crying her life out. “Don’t cry,” he says, “You came out, so that means you have a good heart after all.”
At everyone’s amazement, the pastor makes the husband stand in front of the two women, and he asks him to choose one. “I choose my wife,” the man says without hesitation, but the wife walks toward she’s ushered back by the pastor.
“If you want something, take it,” the pastor tells the man, as he walks towards his wife and children while the crowd keeps on cheering. He also encouraged the mistress and the man to delete each other’s numbers, adding that, the day they come together, they’ll “die on the spot.”
And as if that wasn’t enough, the pastor then encourages the wife and the mistress to hug, talking about forgiveness in the background.
In the end, everyone seems happy and thankful to the past for solving their problems, even if it was in front of thousands of people and a million more from all over the world after the video went viral on Worldstar Hip-Hop.
This is not the first time a pastor goes a bit out of line to prove a point. But Makandiwa’s actions look tame in comparison to the lengths pastor Paul Sanyangore has taken to preach to his congregation.
Sanyangore was preaching at Victory World International church in Bulawayo, central Zimbabwe when he revealed he has a direct line to God, through the phone.
“I have His number, and I can call Him when the need arises. I actually have a direct line which I can call Him on and get instructions on how to proceed,” he told the astonished crowd in a video from the service shared on social media.
Paul then calls a woman to the front of the church as he dials on his phone. “Hello, is this heaven? I have a woman here, what do you have to say about her?” he says on the phone. And continued:
“He says we should pray for your children, two of them. He is saying the other one is epileptic; the other one is asthmatic. God is telling me to tell you that your story has changed.”
Religious people from all over the world consider the pastor’s actions as blasphemous and disrespectful. Some went as far as calling him and the people who believe he can actually talk to “Papa God” on the phone, “crazy” and “deluded.”
“I just can't believe that there are actually people this gullible and foolish. I don't know who is worse, these obvious false prophets or there obvious foolish people!” wrote one YouTube user.
And another added, “Crazy pastor. But the truth is, I don't blame them fake pastors, but the crazy members shouting and clapping. Imagine the stupidity. Nonsense.”
