Durban - Grace Bible Church (GBC) bishop Mosa Sono has added his voice to South African religious leaders condemning an alleged "resurrection" that was filmed and spread via social media on Sunday last week.
Sono said via an emailed statement that GBC rejected the "so-called resurrection" and described the act as "blasphemy against God and a black mark on Christianity".
“We are appalled by the acts that have been described as miracles by so-called men of God, [done] to confuse and to take advantage of the gullibility of their congregants.
"As leaders in this sector, we need to stand up and defend Christianity against people who use deception to amass wealth. It is an indictment against the church of Jesus Christ and an abuse that the Word of God warns against. We call upon our law enforcement agencies to get to the bottom of these insensitive acts and bring to book people who break the law in the name of religion,” said Sono.
He said that GBC recently took part in a summit to discuss "controversial acts that have brought a spotlight upon the church".
