South African preacher gets congregation to drink PETROL

A South African preacher persuaded his congregation to drink petrol after claiming he had turned it into pineapple juice. Pastor Lesego Daniel performed the supposed 'miracle' in Garankuwa, near Pretoria, having poured the liquid into a bucket and dropped a match inside, causing it to set alight.

Pastor Daniel then told his congregation he had turned it into fruit juice and encouraged them to line up and take a sip from the bottle. The video from the Rabboni Centre Ministry shows people crowding around the preacher and having the yellow liquid poured into their mouths.

Pastor Daniel, meanwhile, informs his congregation: ‘I want to prove to you, with the flames that will burn here, that it shows what can be achieved if you have faith.'

'What you see, you have to believe it,' he adds, before drinking some of the liquid himself.
It's unclear what happens to the members of the congregation after they swig the liquid.

The preacher made international headlines in January when he was photographed persuading followers to eat the grass at his ministry. He said that humans with faith eat anything to feed their bodies and can survive on whatever they choose to eat, and persuading them to eat grass and drink petrol was simply a way of proving the point. The outrageous stunts may have been dangerous, but his congregation claim it helped cure their various ailments.

One woman claimed eating grass stopped her having a sore throat, while another said it healed her after a stroke. Interviewed by local media one of the congregation, Rosemary Phetha, said: 'Yes, we eat grass and we're proud of it because it demonstrates that, with God's power, we can do anything.'

Photos showed that followers who had eaten grass then allowed Pastor Daniel to walk across them as they spread out on the floor.
The grass eating however failed to impress many with one outraged commentator saying: 'Is this a scene in a movie? This can't be real. God created animals to chew grass and made human beings to dominate over animals. Any person who reduces human beings to animals is definitely not of God.'
