Pastor Who Instructs Congregation To Eat Grass Comes Under Fire.

                                          One of Daniel's followers eats grass. (Rabboni Centre Ministries, Facebook)                                                                        One woman claimed eating the grass stopped her having a sore throat, while another said it healed her after a stroke 
A South African church leader has come under fire after reports that he made members of his congregation eat grass. Pastor Lesego Daniel, who is based in Garankuwa, north of Pretoria, told dozens of followers to eat grass because “it will bring them closer to God”.
 Daniel made headlines globally after images were shown of his followers laying down in a field and furiously munching grass. Further images were then shown of some followers vomiting. People were apparently been drawn to the pastor’s church, Rabboni Centre Ministries, after it was claimed that he performed miracles.
But many people have started questioning Daniel’s credentials and complained on the ministry’s Facebook page. “No man of God would tell the people of his flock to eat grass... this man is not of God, run away as far as you can from him and his teachings,” said one user. “Did you yourself taste that grass? Why feed it to your congregation? This is purely abuse of power and betraying God's word!” says another.  Daniel has not responded to the complaints or queries but some of his followers have come to his defence. Yes, we eat grass and we're proud of it because it demonstrates that, with God's power, we can do anything,' Rosemary Phetha said. The Times Live reported that during a service of at least 1,000 people in a marquee  Daniel screamed 'sleep' and six people went to sleep. He ordered other congregants to slap and trample on them, tut the sleepers remain rigid and unresponsive until he ordered them to wake up.  'You can leave them like this for six months. I love this, I don't want to be bored. You can even make police go to sleep when they come to arrest you,' he said.   Although Daniel has not responded to the backlash yesterday he posted on Facebook: 'God is at work and His people are testifying right now st the farm. TO GOD BE THE GLORY.'
