In a play on “the devil made me do it”, Pastor Timothy Ngwu of the Vineyard Ministry of the Holy Trinity in Nigeria got twenty of his female parishioners pregnant, saying that the Holy Spirit commanded him to do it.
Ebere Amaraizu, spokesman for the Enugu State Police Command, said “The pastor claims to be obeying prophetic/spiritual injunction to do the will of God, which is to impregnate any one chosen and revealed by the Holy Spirit, irrespective of whether the woman is married or not.”
Pastor Ngwu was turned in to police by his wife who grew sick of his philandering ways after he impregnated her niece. The pastor’s brother had reportedly been warning the family about Ngwu for a long time without any success. He told them, “Let me tell you, God’s anger has befallen my brother, we have severally appealed to him to stop what he was doing but he refused. He has colonized our compound, bearing children with recklessness. He accused us of being jealous of him because he is doing the will of God.”
Ngwu told the press that he had five wives and thirteen children at present, along with an unspecified number of concubines that were provided by God. Several women reported that they gave their children to Ngwu and at least one reports that Ngwu impregnated her daughter subsequently.
This is what happens when people believe in imaginary friends in the sky so strongly that they take leave of their senses. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time I’ve written about Christian abuses in Africa, it seems to be commonplace and because the government largely lets them get away with it, at least until it becomes painfully obvious, you get pastors ordering their flock to eat grass and have sex and give them all of their belongings and hardly anyone says a word. Yes, you get a lot of American Christians saying that this kind of thing doesn’t happen with Christianity, but clearly it does. It just doesn’t happen in secular societies like America where the government doesn’t allow religion to get away with murder. But let’s not fool ourselves, Christianity is just as bad as Islam where it is allowed to be. That’s why this kind of thing will continue to appear on Horror Show Sunday for a long time to come.
