Priest Light Monyeki is from Soshaguve, South Africa. And it seems to be his calling to show his followers that he and those who believe in his teachings were superhumans able to ward off death.

During the High Place Conference, which is also referred to as his “Supernatural Service,” Monyeki proclaimed that they must not fear death, as they will not die. He then started pouring Rattax (a popular rat poison) into a bottle of water, which he then urged his believers to drink.

This is Priest Light Monyeki, a non-believer in the power of rat poison.

He proclaimed,

We do not need to proclaim faith because we are believers. Death has no power over us.

Monyeki put some rat poison into a water bottle and then challenged his believers to drink from the poisoned water.

Monyeki then took a swig from the bottle of poisoned water. And with the power of belief and the absolute faith they had in Monyeki, many followers ran forward to take a drink as well.

The congregation, in their absolute faith in Monyeki, rushed forward to drink the poison.

Many of them were enthralled by the idea that they could defy death.

Predictably enough, in the evening, many members of the congregation started to complain of stomach pains, and later 5 of them were declared to be dead. 13 more of the member of the congregation were taken to the hospital for ingesting Monyeki’s rat poison cocktail.

Monyeki, however, refused to take the blame for the horrific effects of what he did. Instead, all he had to say was,

Too much of any good thing could be bad.

We’re guessing that by “good thing” he’s referring to the ability to escape from death.

The incident has sparked an investigation, though no arrests have been made. Sadly, it looks like Monyeki may walk away a free man as the people who died or became sick from the rat poison were the ones who willingly ingested the concoction!

Now, this reminds me of that controversial Pastor who ‘Heals’ HIV and Cancer patients by spraying them with insecticide.

    • I truly believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for me and many others. As far as “thinking wisely”, I pray that even people who do not believe this are at the very least, people who care about other people.

    • I don’t see what the belief in Christ has to do with any of this and if your trying to tie it together, find me some of the teaching of Christ that teach what this idiot has done. I will bet that you will be left with nothing to show except your ignorance…….Anyhow, this is exactly what happens when people follow man and take their eyes of God. Christ never taught anyone to drink poison, and when the Bible talks about plucking out an eye, it is figurative, not literal, then again, as the Lord tells us, the Bible is written so that a child can understand it’s teachings. This is what happens when we move away from that and start to trust in others outside of God.

      • following a book that man says is from god is really the same thing as following man, there isn’t anything in the bible that man could not of written.

      • >find me some of the teaching of Christ that teach what this idiot has done.

        Mark 16:15-18

        (15) And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone. (16) Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned. (17) These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages.e (18) They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick, and they will be healed.”

        >Christ never taught anyone to drink poison

        Of course he didn’t teach them to drink poison, but as the bible verse I just quoted indicates, he does say specifically that if believers drink poison they will not be harmed, the exact same thing this preacher said. People died from believing what Jesus said in the bible, how does your cognitive dissonance reconcile that Ron?

  1. Believing in God and Jesus is just as ridiculous. You just don’t think it is because you have grown up with it and it’s imprinted in your brain. Just as a Hindu or Islamist, they think Christianity is ridiculous because they have grown up with a certain religion stamped into their brain, does that make them wrong? I understand humans want something to believe in but if you believe that there’s a supernatural guy in the sky that made anything and everything and his son died for our sins aren’t you just as ridiculous? The Bible also claims the Earth is less than 10,000 years old, disproven thousands of times, I can’t wait until we get passed religion that is causing nothing but wars and holding us back its absolutely amazing that we are still this dumb but yet so smart.

  2. By their fruits you shall know them. Jesus fed 5,000 and 4,000 respectively, excluding women and children with bread and sardines, not with rat poison. He said, ‘which of you, when his child asks for bread and he will give him a stone…..? If these so called prophets mostly found in south Africa can cajole their gullible congregation to take poison and all manner of rubbish in the name of faith and miracle, then we have too many dumb fellows in South Africa.

  3. v18 ..and if they drink anything poisonous.. Mohammed, does this sound like this headless priest & his blind congregation’s WAY? ”If” meaning if poisoned unknowingly not intetionally/showing off/boustiful..! In the Bible some fellas were ”thrown” in lion’s den they end up unharmed, they didnt throw themself in just to show off..!

  4. Wow! Satan frequently appears as an angel of light. Looks like folks were believing in the wrong one! They should’ve been believing in God, AND reading the Word so that snakes and con men like this guy can’t fool you into doing stupid things in the name of religion.

  5. When Satan told Lord Jesus to throw Himself off the top of the temple, Jesus told him that you shall not tempt the Lord your God. They were tempting God. They do not read the word of God to know when there is a wolf in sheep’s clothing in their midst. I mean come on, if anyone tells me to drink poison I will know he’s of the devil!
    And “payloader”, George & Joanne….AMEN!
