This church is located in Brazil. It is now battling image damaging posts which is it described as false. But event their reaction might stun you though they provided Biblical evidence for their position.
A church has reacted after a photo went viral, showing two people laying on each other on the church’s altar while a minister and several church members stretched out their hands towards them.
Several reports circulating with the picture claimed the pair seen on the floor has been trying to conceive and have a child for ten years without success. The pastor of the church where they came for help asked them to have sex on the altar, in the presence of members who would also join in praying for them.
This story sounded credible especially because a piece of cloth was used to cover the two from chest down as if it was meant to prevent people from seeing the ‘real action’.
The photo caused outrage, with many giving their opinion on the matter.
The church, located in Brazil, has now reacted.
In their reaction which also went viral on social media, the church said the photo was of two women, not a man and a woman.
They added that the woman had come with a sickness and she fainted during service.
As a result, after the preaching, a pastor called the sick woman and “did this prophetic act”.
The church said getting a female minister to lay on top of the sick woman was based on the Bible passage that saw Prophet Elisha lay on the body of a dead boy while praying to God to bring his spirit back to life.
Many have gone on Facebook to declare support for the church and for its Minister — a woman who is quite popular as a religious leader in Brazil.
