The founder and leader of Gabola Church based in South Africa,Pope Tsietsi Makiti has hinted that he’ll soon author the Bible, the Holy Book of Christians.
The controversial man of God said the chapters of his yet-to-be released Bible will have the kasis where they have branches as the chapters’ names.
Although the bible has not been seen but Makiti has provided the news outlet with a few samples of the verses the holy book would incorporate.
The religious leader said he hopes his holy book would decolonise black people First, Tsietsi Makiti founded a church out of a tavern (local alcohol joint), then he went on to be ordained as a pope. Now, the religious leader plans to write his own bible.
The Daily Sun reported that Pope Tsietsi Makiti announced he would be writing his own bible using the kasis where they have branches as the chapters’ names. Although the bible has not been seen but Makiti has provided the news outlet with a few samples of the verses the holy book would incorporate.
According to the report, Evaton North chapter 1 verse 1 reads: “Leave every Gabola Church member to come to the first black African pope, equal to none, for the kingdom of God is for the ones like them. Now and forevermore, Hallelujah Amstel.”
Makiti has since the establishment of his church in 2017, upgraded his title from bishop to pope. In April the Gabola founder was ordained as the ‘Pope of Africa’ in Evaton North.
However, although his church grew rapidly in only a few months, exceeding 15,000 members, the South African Union Council of Independent Churches said the church was a cult and disgrace to the Christian faith.
