A pastor in Zimbabwe whose names we got as Jonathan Mthethwa became food for crocodiles as he attempted to replicate Jesus’ walking upon the sea.
According to Zimbabwe Today, the said pastor who was the leader of Saint of the Last Days Church located in the White River Mpumalanga region, had tried replicating the Biblical story of Jesus walking on water at a river known as Crocodile River which is inhabited by a large number of the reptiles.
Unfortunately for him, his faith was not as strong as he claimed, as he got attacked and torn into bits by 3 hungry and feisty crocodiles in the presence of his church members.
According to eyewitnesses recounts, the pastor had walked into the water and was 30 meters away when he attempted to climb to surface and walk as Christ did. All of a sudden, these crocodiles appeared from nowhere and attacked him. Before the rescue units could get there, it was already too late as the pastor was already dead and all they could see was his pair of sandals and his underwear floating on the river
A church member recounted that the pastor had preached to them on a Sunday service about faith and told them that he could perform miracles like Christ did. His words were;
“The pastor taught us about faith on Sunday last week. He promised he would demonstrate his faith to us today, but he, unfortunately, ended up drowning and getting eaten by 3 large crocodiles in front of us.
We still don’t understand how this happened because he fasted and prayed the whole week.
The crocodiles finished him in a couple of minutes. All that was left of him when they finished eating him is a pair of sandals and his underwear floating above the water.”
