Bushiri church clarifies ‘prophetic seeding money’ after South African probe

The Enlightened Christian Gathering Church of Malawi charismatic prophet ‘Major 1’ Shepherd Bushiri has been in the headlines in South Africa on Wednesday after The Sowetan newspaper carried a front-page story that the church was investigated by the country’s CRL commission over reports that its Pretoria based church charges congregants R5 000 (about K200,000).sowetan

The Sowetan had a catchy headline on front page lead story titled: “R5,000 to see the Man of God

The story says Bushiri’s church told the CRL commission investigating dodgy pastors and the commercialised selling of religion, that the R5 000 was not really a fee.

The money covered each church members ’accommodation, transport and food, according to the church official Mirriam Motsolo.

She told the paper that it was just to ensure ‘Papa’ Bushiri found all the “people in one place ”.

The church official said Bushiri’s ECG also accepts “prophetic seeding” – which is for the prophet, seeding, tithes, offerings and prophetic channel seeding, for people who want to partner with the free-to-air ministry channel.

“Seeding is when you have a special need and what you are trusting God for. [You] plant it and expect to harvest at a later season,” said evangelist Trity Pretorius as quoted by The Sowetan.

Motsolo said the prophetic seeding money was not sent to Malawi but was used for Bushiri ’ s travel and accommodation.

Why worry yourselves friends since you are very clever not to be cheated by this Man of God?Let those who believe in Major 1’s God do what they want and if they do not want to pay or feel cheated to publicise, who forced them to go there? Read God’s Word clearly,He says hold your peace,the battle is not yours but His.Who are you to judge another man?Let God do His work,otherwise if Major 1 is a sinner as you insinuate,by complaining and accusing Bushiri you are downloading his sins and adding them to you list. I believe this Man… Read more »
