My book, “The Global Apostolic Movement and the Progress of the Gospel,” is among several I wrote and is considered a must-read. In some of my writings, the blessings and abuses of this movement are covered in detail. (Refer to my book, “An Anthology of Essays on Apostolic Leadership.”)

As an adherent and proponent of the apostolic movement, some of the unbiblical practices therein have concerned me greatly.

Cult Leader Revealed: Shocking Revelations of False Prophecy and Tragedy

In a shocking turn of events, a self-proclaimed pastor, Paul Nthenge Mackenzie, leader of the Good News International Church, has been exposed as a cult leader, leading his followers to a tragic end. The revelation comes after mass graves were uncovered in Shakahola forest, southeast Kenya, containing 429 bodies, with signs of starvation and disturbing markings consistent with strangulation and suffocation, particularly among children.

Mackenzie, who allegedly encouraged his disciples to starve themselves in preparation to “meet Jesus,” now faces serious charges, including murder, manslaughter, radicalization, cruelty and child torture, among others. Over 90 individuals associated with the cult will also be charged in connection with these heinous crimes.

The shocking details emerged when investigators, acting on a tip from a local rights group, rescued 15 emaciated members from the Good News International Church. Tragically, four of them later succumbed to the ordeal. Survivors recounted being confined without food or water for five days, wrapped in blankets and buried alive.
