The question is - do they believe their own BS or are they just cold-hearted scammers? It would be interesting to find out.

If they believe that they are men of God etc. etc. the deceptions are probably justified in their head because it helps people believe etc. and somehow the fact that they are getting people to believe in their own lies escapes them. But I can understand how a person in that position could justify their actions to themselves.

If the person is just a straight up con-artist - man that is some dedication to the con. How do they keep it up?

Of course they are a bunch of scammers but maybe they do believe that their flock, who believe in the "miracles" are Godsend.

Agreed, either way they are all scammers, but it would be interesting to unpack the psychology of it. Are they AWARE they are scammers - pure con artists, or are they so immersed in their belief anything (including a scam) goes i.e. the end justifies the means. The one is very different from the other and it would be interesting to find out.

Clearly these people do not know their Bible very well:

MATTHEW 6:3-4 Amplified Bible (AMP)
But when you give to the poor and do acts of kindness, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing [give in complete secrecy], so that your charitable acts will be done in secret; and your Father who sees [what is done] in secret will reward you.


Matthew 6:3-4 The Passion Translation (TPT)
But when you demonstrate generosity, do it with pure motives and without drawing attention to yourself. Give secretly and your Father, who sees all you do, will reward you openly.”

lmao... So most of us dont believe that this "pastor" raised someone from the dead, even though he has "video evidence" and witnesses (that is still alive)... The same people believe that a man called Lazarus was raised from the dead by someone called Jesus just because a "gospel" written roughly 90 years after the supposed "resurrection" by someone whom wasn't present at the supposed "resurrection" claims that it happened?
Makes perfect sense... lol

Now Lukau's church says man was already 'undead' on arrival

Three days have not even passed, yet a church that claimed to have resurrected a man is now backtracking from its "miracle".


As pastor Alph Lukau's "resurrection" video continued to dominate social media conversations yesterday, with many ridiculing his claims, the Alleluia International Ministries said the "dead" man was actually "already alive" when his "body" got to the premises.


The Alleluia International Ministries church in Kramerville, Sandton, now says that Lukau had only "completed a miracle that God had already started".


The climbdown is after the church found itself in hot water with three funeral parlours that were apparently duped into taking part in the act reporting it to the police yesterday.


Advocate Prince Mafu, speaking on behalf of Kings and Queens, Black Phoenix and Kingdom Blue, said the parlours were used through various forms of misrepresentation to suit a particular outcome.

Yip it's hilarious.

If they wanted people to believe them, they should have gotten a cave dweller to write about it...
