A pastor in Uganda burned thousands of copies of the Bible claiming the sacred book “misleads” his congregation.
Pastor Aloysius Bugingo, pastor of the House of Prayer Ministries in Makerere, Kikoni, set fire to thousands of copies of the Bible because he says they are “heavily edited” and are thus misleading his congregation, Tuko reported. He burned the Bibles on Easter Monday.
Pastor Bugingo, who owns Salt FM and TV, claimed that certain versions of the Bible, such as the widely accepted King James Version, the Good News Bible have been “tampered with” and feature some omissions. Some verses that have been omitted, the pastor claims, are those that concern fasting and the Lent period.
He also claimed that the King James Version mentions the “Holy Ghost” 99 times, farpost was originally published on this site
