Reverend Njohi said women who attend his services at the Lord's Propeller Redemption Church in Nairobi are forbidden from wearing bras and underwear. Njohi said when going to church, people need to be “free in body and spirit” so they can receive Christ.
However, men, seem to be able to feel the Lord just fine and dandy in their Fruit of the Looms.
Maybe the ladies should switch to boy shorts?
Oh and this is not optional. It might as well be a commandment. Thou shall not go to church in you underwear.
The pastor added there would be grave consequences if his female members did not adhere to the new rule, which was reportedly adhered to as most women are said to have attended the next service with no underwear.
Njohi told mothers to check their daughters before going to church, so they can be close to Jesus. Oh Dear Lord.
Njohi has received media attention for his strange new rule, and some are not pleased with the pastor's edict, arguing that it is an attempt to take advantage of women under the ruse that they are doing something godly.
" Twitter comments regarding the news ranged from people saying "wow!" to "shaking my head."
In a similarly strange story that took place in early January, Pastor Lesego Daniel of Rabboni Centre Ministries in South Africa commanded members of his church to eat grass, saying that the Bible states that Jesus had his disciples, other than the 12 listed, do unconventional things to prove their faith and obedience to God.
