A Uganda-based Pastor, Aloysius Bugingo, the leader of the House of Prayer ministries, has left tongues wagging after he ordered his church members to collect thousands of bibles which he later burned.
The Man of God who set his church member’s bibles ablaze, claimed the various versions of the bible had been heavily edited thus were ‘misleading’ his congregation.
The Cleric whose church is attended mostly by University students and have a congregation of about 6,000 people, and also owns Salt FM and TV, set on fire other versions including the New Testament and the Good News Bible which he said have omitted some verses.
Some of the bible versions that were burned included the King James Bible, Good News Bible and New Testament translation.
He also claimed the King James Bible version contained the word ‘Holy Ghost’ more times than it did the word ‘Holy Spirit’.
The Pastor’s action has been heavily condemned by fellow Christians, some who even claim he might face punishment from God.
