Pastor turns snakes into chocolate

Pastor turns snakes into chocolate

Members of ‘Prophet’ Penuel Mnguni‚Äôs End Times Disciples Ministries in Soshanguve, Pretoria, were convinced that, by the power of God, live snakes would be turned into chocolate.

According to this report, the church posted images of Mnguni’s antics on Facebook which show the pastor dropping snakes into the mouths of his congregants.

The pictures were captioned:

Man of God declared a snake to become a chocolate (chomp) and the congregation ate it. We have authority to change everything into anything and it will obey because of our authority.

Mnguni hit the headlines back in May when he encouraged his followers to strip in the name of Jesus … then stomped on them.

Strip

Pictures of this caper were also posted by the church on its Facebook page, but removed after a public outcry.

    Low level stuff. Randi can perform far more impressive feats.

    Another example of the wish of people to be conned. They want to believe this nonsense and so they do believe it.

    All religions turn brains to mush.

    He’s a bit behind the times, actually:

    PS: “I visited the pastor and he put a chocolate snake in my mouth.”

    Hmmm…are we quite sure that we are being told the truth here?

    @barriejohn: I think it must have felt like a snake and moved in her mouth. I can’t imagine what else it could have been. Unless……..??? Oh no, it couldn’t have been that as he is a Prophet and very devout.

    I hope that it was healthy chocolate i.e. 85% cocoa. None of that milk chocolate stuff packed with sugar.

    Is he related to Eric Cartman?

    Depressing, but no worse than the supplements I use for my heart or brain function. maybe just another snake oil salesman with Its NaturaL not processed.

    You commentators are so cynical. This is a man of god; as such , he would not lie.
    Just remember, this church is not far from Limpopo; a province in South Africa renowned for it’s many witches, many of whom get killed for practising their dark art in g spells on people.

    I’m worried about the snakes. I often used to see them when I was a boy and now I never see one. What happens to the snakes he is using and where does he get them? This is a disturbing aspect of the story for me.

    Snakes. Why did it have to be snakes?

    The world is heavily burdened with credulous fools and befouled with battalions of charlatans who prey upon them.

    I see that the Mnguni has somehow convinced at least one female member of his congregation to get half naked.Religion being used as a means of manipulation for the sexual gratification of the man who has all the answers? Surely, surely not!

    As Samuel L Jackson might well have commented, ‘I have had it with these motherfucking snakes in this motherfucking church.’

  14. Cali Ron says:

    I hate motherfuckin’ snakes!

  15. killerbee says:

    I certainly hope that his reference to the word “snake” is not a euphemism

  16. barriejohn says:

    I hate followerfuckin’ pastors!

  17. AgentCormac says:

    Haha! Very good, barriejohn!

  18. Cali Ron says:

    Kudos barriejohn!

    In our neck of the woods, there’s a lolly product called Choc Dipped Snakes. These are multi flavoured lolly snakes dipped in choc and they’re quite yummy on a cool day. No magic, except the magic of manufacture required.
