Pastor Lukau under fire for staging ‘resurrection’ miracle in church

Things are turning ugly for South Africa’s Pastor Alph Lukau who is facing public criticism for ‘increasingly staging miracles in his church’ with an aim of gaining popularity.

Lukau lays his hands on the dead man in a white suit named Elliot, prays and boom! – the man is brought back to life.

Congolese born Lukau runs an over 8 000 membership church in Sandton, South Africa, and has been in the news lately for allegedly staging ‘miracle’ to court attention.

The recent backlash concerns a miracle of resurrecting a dead person in his church on Sunday.

It is being reported that people brought to a church a dead person in the coffin and Lukau opened the coffin, prayed for the dead person and the person returned back to life.

This has rattled various quarters of Christians who find the move as ‘typical of spiritual fraudsters who use antics to fool people.’

Social media is currently awash with questions as to who, in the first place, certified the person dead with many Malawians also questioning Lukau v: Is this real? Why did the man not look like someone who’d been dead two days? Where is his death certificate? Why was he not immediately tended to by a health care professional?

The questions outnumber the answers by far.

The South Africa department of health is said to be launching an investigation into matter because it suspects some gimmicks being involved.

Meanwhile, the Kings and Queens Real Funeral Services, whose vehicle was used to carry the coffin, has distanced itself that the supposed deceased person was at their mortuary.

Malawians on social media recently questioned Luaku when he was caught on  video clip making fake prophecies on  an Machinjiri area in Blantyre,  naming street names purportedly belong to thee township when in actual fact there  are no streets names he was mentioning.

Lukau has also raised eyebrows for claiming to heal HIV/Aids, TB and other illnesses.

However, unlike his counterparts, Lukau has not faced any criminal charges nor been referred to the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of Cultural and Religious Rights (CRL).

He has, however, been embroiled in a legal battle with South African-based Nigerian journalist Solomon Ashoms after Lukau sued Ashoms for defamation of character after the journalist claimed he was a fake preacher on his Facebook account.

If god can’t even stop fraudsters from using his name, how can he stop corruption or theft or hunger or famine.

There is no god. Lets get rid of this thinking which was brought to us by Europeans to make is docile so they could rob us and control us.

You’re speaking my language Tariq. God doesn’t exist. The sooner we realize that, the better for us all.

be very careful with your utterances. if you claim the europeans brought God to us and we are being blinded, then you are displaying ignorance in the highest degree because i am very sure you pride yourself with formal education. Ask yourself who brought formal education? Its the whites who brought that too to confuse you. Besides Christianity has many evidences to show. if one man is muddying the waters doesnt mean that is the true picture of christianity… the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom

South Africans n most of Malawians believe blindly. This is purely fake n staged. That is y most thieves go to this country pretending different types of profession like witch doctors or pastors. Government should put in place methods of rooting out this evils from our societies.

is the government on the right(or far much corrupt than what you could imagine?)…let “GOD” bring to the “light” all that is done in darkness including your own character…check one’s log in your own eye, before becoming critical on another man’s speck…
