Couple a denomination that’s known for harboring sexually immoral people with the world’s greatest hotbed of Word of Faith heresy and what do you get? “Pastors” who are seduced by women that are inadequately dressed.
At times we’re tempted by skimpily dressed women,” says Pastor Godfrey Migwi of House of Hope Church in Kayole, “who come to church to make advances on us in the name of counselling. We are human beings and have feelings.”
Of course, sexual immorality is rampant in Pentecostalism and the denomination is where the majority of clergy who fall to sexual immorality end up when they are “restored” to ministry.
It’s difficult to discern whether what this pastor says is actually true or not — in Africa, the climate is different. Perhaps, in Africa, pastors who preach the Word of God, stand on the authority of Scripture, and are devoted to making converts and baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are typically sought out to be fawned over by underdressed women and seduced into one night stands.
But, perhaps, these pastors — particularly the ones who preach the false Pentecostal Word of Faith gospel and lead people into the idolatry of money — are actually tempted because they are, well, largely false converts.
