Pastor Accused Of Farting On Congregation's Face Says "It's A Demonstration Of God's Power"

A pastor accused of farting in the faces of his congregation says that his methods are justified.

Recently, a bunch of photos emerged on social media, showing Pastor Christ Penelope sitting on the heads of people at SevenFold Holy Spirit Ministries in Siyandani Village, Limpopo, South Africa. One attendee from the mass had posted the photos with a peculiar complaint, “ When we come to church it's because we need prayers, not to be farted on.”

Pastor Penelope has since reacted to the backlash against his unorthodox ways, suggesting that he is simply demonstrating ‘God’s powers’.

Speaking to Drum, he explained: "It started with Master Jesus when he stepped on Peter. It is the demonstration of God's power. Just like God made Adam go into a deep sleep, it is a similar thing.

"God did anything with the body of Adam while he was on the ground in deep sleep. He was not feeling anything.

"The Bible doesn't say anything about Adam saying 'God, you are hurting me'."

Pretty sure the Bible doesn't say anything about guffing on people's heads either, to be fair.

Pastor Penelope continued: "When they wake up from the deep sleep, they will tell you that they didn't feel anything. It is showing the power of God and those who needed healing are healed afterward and others get to manifest at that moment.

"Remember when people try to tarnish your image, that is when he shows his glory.

"As long as souls are won into the kingdom, he who sits on the throne laughs at his enemies."

Other South African pastors, however, do not agree with Penelope’s justification for farting. Pastor Jacob Sibiya from Kagiso said: "This is wrong. Nowhere does God say sit on people and they will be healed.

"Pastors should practice what's in the Bible, not what they think is in there."
