“They were drinking the blood of Jesus” – Pastor who gave members JIK bleach to drink defends his action

A controversial South African pastor, who gave his church members JIK bleach to drink during his service last week, has spoken out to defend his action.

Pastor Ruffus Phala, of Ark Centre Ministry in Makgodu Village, Limpopo, South Africa told Daily Sun he could turn the Jik into the blood of Jesus – he said what his members were drinking wasn’t Jik but Jesus Christ’s blood.

Yes, it was Jik before I made the declaration. But after I declared it to be the blood of Jesus Christ it means it’s no longer Jik so it won’t harm anyone who consumes it.
He said what he did was similar to what happened in the Bible, where Jesus gave his servants’ wine to drink but had said to them “this is my blood“.

Limpopo police spokesman Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe said they had not received any complaints. He urged the affected congregants to come forward and open a case so cops could investigate.
