In an attempt to imitate Jesus Christ by walking on water, a pastor of the Saint of the last days church in Mpumalanga, Zimbabwe have been eaten alive by three giant crocodiles.
Pastor Jonathan Mthethwa was unfortunate as he tried to prove to his congregation that he could walk on water.
According to members of his church who witnessed the sad event, Jonathan had gone to the crocodile river to show them that what happened in the bible could happen in our time, if only they believed. Unfortunately, he only walked about 30 meters into the river before the crocodiles appeared and started feasting on him.
One of the members identified as Deacon Nkosi, said:
The pastor taught us about faith on Sunday last week. He promised he would demonstrate his faith to us today, but he unfortunately ended up drowning and getting eaten by 3 large crocodiles in front of us. We still don’t understand how this happened because he fasted and prayed the whole week. They finished him in a couple of minutes. All that was left of him when they finished eating him is a pair of sandals and his underwear floating above the water. Emergency services were called but they were 30 minutes late as Pastor Jonathan was already dead.
