Church members bow to worship ‘goat meat’ nailed to a cross (video)
A lot of reactions have greeted a viral video of worshippers of a church bowing to worship a dead got nailed to a cross.
The worshippers are head in the video screaming as if they were in a trance while they bow before the goat meat.
They appear to be mimicking the suffering of Jesus Christ who died on the cross to save mankind.
The goat had been killed and cut open before it was nailed, with its interior on display.
It is unclear what biblical reasoning informed the crucifixion of the goat and what communication the church members were having with it.
A video of the worship was uploaded to social media and it has since gone viral with many people expressing mixed reactions to it.
While some people are baffled by the practice, others say it is evil and ungodly but some too hold the view that it is their way of worship and so they should be allowed to worship whatever answers their prayers.
