A South African preacher made his congregation eat grass to ‘be closer to God’ before stamping on them.

Under the instruction of Pastor Lesego Daniel of Rabboni Centre Ministries dozens of followers dropped to the ground to eat the grass.

This is after being told it will ‘bring them closer to God' and bring them riches.

Controversy

His controversial methods have drawn criticism from thousands of people although members of his congregation swear by his methods – he is said to have claimed that humans can eat anything to feed their bodies and survive on whatever they choose to eat.
