I’m not Satanist, says Pastor Salanje: Maintains bragging about riches

Pastor Hastings Salanje, leader of Wells of Revival Ministries in Johannesburg, has rebutted claims that he left Malawi at the thicket of allegations that he was a “Satanist” and a “human private parts dealer” warning orchestrators of such talk to always “be careful about what they say about pastors.”

The South Africa-based controversial pastor told Nyasa Times in an exclusive interview  that the allegations of his links to Satanic cult were “a total lie from Satan.”

He said: “If I was being involved in human private parts dealings, why didn’t the police arrest me? I’m sure we’ve police in Malawi right? Where is the person who saw that?

“It is high time people knew that the devil is clever. When you beat him, he calls you Satan or Satanist, he called Jesus Satan too. So, to me it is the same case but it doesn’t move me.”

He said he too started hearing about “these stories from 2003” but only left Malawi in 2008.

Salanje, who has been awash in media posting posh pictures of his expensive cars, told Nyasa Times that he “was not focusing on how many come to worship at his ministry for now.”

He said “God told me to invest first and at the same time I was going through training.”

Salanje referred to his training as some sort of “wilderness.”

“When God calls you,” he said, “he takes you through a series of trainings and that is one of the most difficult times for a man of God. Wilderness is when God takes you through a series of troubles.”

He unleashed venom at his sceptics saying “people must know that whatever they say doesn’t affect us, but themselves. We know the one who called us is God, and we will always listen to him only.

“Like in my case, nothing will affect me because I don’t eat from church offering. Whatever they say about men of God will affect them and their children tomorrow. You can’t attack a true man of God and go unpunished.

“People tried in the Bible but they were heavily punished.”

On investing in Malawi, Salanje said he was not investing in the country “as of yet.”

He added: “But I do help a lot of people. If you ask people they will tell you that I’m the best giver ever, and what I’m today is because of giving. You can imagine that I’ve already given over 22 cars to pastors and other places plus millions of money.”

Unlike most men of the clergy, Salanje does not use the social media platform to share scriptures or reach out to his followers but rather uses it to brag and show off his riches.

His Facebook page is littered with images of his expensive cars and upmarket mansion.

Christians must testify to prove to unbelievers that God is not dead.. pastor Salanje’s testimony is based on what the bible says about tithe and offering Malachi chapter 3, as wel as obedience.
