Apparently, a Zimbabwean prophet has figured a new “bizarre” way of melting away the myriad of problems bedeviling his congregants. According to reports, the prophet, during one of their church services, had his church members place burning candles on their heads in what he called “Melt Away Your Problems.” Congregants froze in pains as hot candle wax rolled down their heads and faces.
The pastor who reportedly sold the mystery candles to his congregants for a whooping $20 insisted his church members must use only candles purchased from him in other to activate the “problem-melting” abilities of the burning candles.
The deteriorating state of affairs in today’s churches, especially, unfortunately, the ‘prophetic churches’ mostly across Africa has become a huge source of worry for many true believers and bible scholars, who now wonder how we all got here.
Given the level of numerous unorthodox, un-biblical practices plaguing the African churches today, many believe that if this raging storm of hypocrisy and apostasy is not nipped in the bud, there may be more falling away amongst believers than predicted by the scriptures. Many believe that the elders who know the truth should rise in defense of the true gospel and save the church from sliding into oblivious irrelevance.
