Pietermaritzburg - There has been yet another public outcry about strange church activities after a Pietermaritzburg pastor allegedly poured boiling water into the hands of congregants and defended the act, saying it was backed by the Bible.
The founder of Thy Word Kingdom Harvest Ministries, Thamsanqa Sambulo, 23, now dubbed the “Kettle Pastor”, lashed out at critics who questioned the need for, and credibility of, the demonstration.
“When believers (Christians) do not know about something, they simply conclude that it is Satan’s work. Whoever wants to prove me wrong must either come and do so or remain silent,” he said.
Sambulo, whose church is in Mpophomeni, Howick, said he could not explain the “miracle”. He said people must come and see it themselves.
“No one has been burnt and for people who ask how is it possible for a person to have hot water poured over them and not get injured, they must read about Moses where he saw a burning tree. That is one of the miracles God performed. What I am doing is not new,” he said.
