A controversial South African pastor who received backlash last year for feeding his congregants snakes and rats as a test of their faith has contrived a new way of "demonstrating the power of God" — by driving over people with a car.
Pastor Penuel Mnguni of the End Times Disciples Ministries in Soshanguve was featured in a series of photos posted to the ministry's Facebook page, which purport to show the self-proclaimed prophet conducting a "demonstration of power" by driving his car on top of sleeping congregants.
"Congregants witnessed the power of God," the ministry's Facebook post reads. "The man of God prophet Penuel demonstrated the power of God by running over two members of the congregants: He commanded both of the members to sleep followed by moving the car over them." more >>

A team of renovators have finally begun restoring the holy site where Jesus Christ is believed to have been entombed after His crucifixion.
Nine Greek experts have been tasked with preserving, restoring and reinforcing the Edicule — the chamber housing the tomb where Jesus was thought to have been laid to rest before He was resurrected — which is located at Jerusalem's Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
In response to thousands of Atheists gathering on the National Mall last Saturday to rally for secularism at the 2016 Reason Rally, leading evangelist Franklin Graham pointed out the irony behind the demonstration.
Atheist activists, entertainers and performers took the stage in front of the Lincoln Memorial on Saturday to rile fellow atheists and religious "nones" to call on politicians and governments to take "reason" as priority over "religious-driven ideology."
Graham, the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, took to his Facebook page Monday to argue that "freedom-loving" Americans should be concerned by the "liberal godless kind of reason" being promoted at the rally. Graham then wrote that it is "ironic" that the gathering was held on the grounds of the Lincoln Memorial. more >>
Can the world experience a "Jesus movement" once again or are those times long gone? That's the question posed by Harvest Christian Fellowship Pastor Greg Laurie in a sermon he preached on Sunday.
In the message based on 2 Chronicles 7:14 titled "Can We Have Revival in Our Time?" Laurie briefly recounted the history of the four "great awakenings" within the body of Christ and shared his theory on how America and the world would be impacted should believers experience an End Times rapture.
Laurie explained: "If millions of Americans were caught up to Heaven we wouldn't be the superpower we are today. … Imagine this: if 100,000,000 people were caught up to meet the Lord in the air, if they just disappeared, do you think that would affect our nation? Well of course it would … imagine the effect on our country if 100,000,000 people — people in industry, government, military, business, agriculture, education, medicine — suddenly disappeared from the face of the Earth. … It would certainly have a crippling effect on our entire nation and upon our infrastructure. more >>
