Report Claims Church Paid People to Fake Medical Miracles
After a video of a man being raised from the dead went viral, an investigation found that one South African Church paid people to pretend that the pastor performed miracles on them.
According to Church Leaders, South African news channel funded by the South African Government, SABC1, began to look into Pastor Alph Lukau and his Alleluia Ministries International church (AMI) after a video began circulating the web in February of a man named “Elliot” who was supposedly resurrected.
The video shows Elliot lying in a coffin surrounded by hundreds of people during a church service, some who were claiming to be his family members and one claiming to be his landlord. As the man laid in the coffin with his eyes wide and mouth gaping, Pastor Lukau asked the people claiming to know him how and when he died. One woman who said that she was the man’s landlord, told Lukau that Elliot died on Friday because he could not receive medical care. At that, Lukau placed his hands on the man – who was already visibly breathing – and yelled: “Rise Up!” Elliot immediately sat up and Lukau along with several other men removed him from the coffin. Lukau can then be heard yelling into a microphone, “The dead man is alive! The coffin is empty!” A woman also holding a microphone then yelled, “Jesus! This is what you call an uncommon miracle!”
