CALL FOR ECUMENICAL CHURCH ORGANIZATIONS AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS
TO DENOUNCE
THE PRACTICE OF DOOM SPRAYING BY THE PROPHET OF DOOM
(Press Release has been submitted and will be released by December 3, 2016)

The Patriarchal Council, chaired by Cardinal Charles R. Hill Sr., PhD who is Patriarch for Ambassadors for Christ Ministry of America (AFCMOA) denounces the use of DOOM (Insecticide and mixture of poisonous toxins) spraying by self-styled Prophet Lethebo Rabalago of the Mount Zion General Assembly in Limpopo, Africa under the guise of spiritual and physical healing.

On November 29, 2016 the EFF attempted to stop a church service led by Prophet Lethebo of Mount Zion General Assembly. When interviewed by the EFF, and other media outlets, several members appeared to support this ill-advised practice. These same members claimed
that the Prophet was really healing people through his unorthodox practice.

On November 30, 2016, our resident AFCMOA Communion member church in Cape Town, South Africa, His Voice Potter’s House Ministries, led by
Presiding Bishop George Smith, PhD made a public call for action, via the social media, for the local South African government
to repudiate the Prophet of Doom and his practices.

As reported by Eye Witness News (EWN) by Thando Kubheka, and edited by Shimoney Regter, on December 1, 2016 from “JOHANNESBURG – The Limpopo Health Department has obtained a court interdict in a bid to stop the controversial Limpopo
‘prophet’ from spraying doom on his congregates.” Reportedly, “Doom” is a toxic mix of chemicals combined and used by the Prophet to “heal” people
from various ailments. However because of the nature of the toxins involved the Limpopo Health Department received the interdict in the
best interest the people. In fact, the provincial department director of the South African Human Rights Commission SAHRC) named Derik
Kganyago stated, “As a Department of Health we are worried that our people are in danger. We have approached the court for an order to
interdict the priest and church.”) In addition, as reported in the same article, “The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC)is also investigating whether there has been any rights violations.”

Therefore, the AFCMOA not only unequivocally denounces the unsafe and dangerous practice of the Prophet from spraying human beings with toxins
under the guise of healing; the AFCMOA fully supports its South African Communion Member Church’s, His Voice Potter’s
House Ministry, call for action for the South African government to repudiate all DOOM type practices immediately and for the government to
take appropriate action. In addition to the call for action made by HVPHM and other South Afrian Churches in the region, the AFCMOA asks
with the strongest voice possible that all Ecumenical Church collaboratives, listed below, to publicly DENOUNCE this deplorable
and in-human practice as it is unlawful and not in the best interest of the people from a physical, mental or spiritual perspective:

1. World Council of Churches (WCC)
2. All Africa Conference of Churches (AACC)
3. Symposium of Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar (SECAM, Roman Catholic)
4. The African Instituted (or Independent) Churches (AICs)
5. Association of Evangelicals of Africa (AEA)
6. Organization of African Instituted Churches (OAIC)

The AFCMOA stands on the value that any practice that brings about the physical, mental, or spiritual harm of a human being can never be
accepted in a humane and just society, let alone in the Holy Church. The Holy Church is a sanctuary, a safe place.
The function of the Holy Church must remain to be a hospital that heals the spiritually sick. As with a traditional hospital, you have trained and licensed doctors who comply with acceptable standards of medical practice as prescribe by state, national, and international
guidelines. Well the same is found within the Holy Church. People come
to church to be healed from spiritual and in some cases mental anguish. Therefore, one will find
qualified, licensed, and anointed men and women of the Holy Church who serve as its doctors but are called Deacons,
Deaconess, Ministers, Reverends, Elders, Apostles, Bishops etc. who are collectively named the venerable
priesthood. This is why it is imperative that the venerable priesthood adhere to acceptable and established standards of practice in accordance with
the Civil Laws of the Land and Christian apologetics. Without doubt, the practice of spraying toxic chemicals of any form directly on a human being
is an UNACCEPTABLE practice.

Assuredly, it is important that the government intercedes in any manner where its citizens are in harms way by any practice that endangers lives or the quality of life. Nevertheless, from a spiritual perspective, the AFCMOA opines that the Holy Church, must do its part as well. The Ecumenical Church Body must show by action its spiritual integrity and no longer standby silent on issues that impact the people. The Church can not allow the government to be the voice of the church for spiritual concerns. The Church must take a bold stand not only for
its apologetics. It must take a stand to Protect the People. In fact, the Holy Church established by Jesus Christ must always be “The Voice of the People.
The Holy Church must be the Voice for God in all spiritual matters.”

The AFCMOA stands on the value that any practice that brings about the physical, mental, or spiritual harm of a human being can never be
accepted in a humane society, let alone in the Holy Church. The Holy Church is a sanctuary, a safe place.

The venerable priesthood must adhere to the acceptable standards of practice established by Jesus Christ and
the Civil Laws of the Land. The practice of spraying toxic chemicals of any form directly on a human being
is an UNACCEPTABLE practice.

Consequently, it is the unwavering position of the AFCMOA that it supports the two-fold call of action made by His Voice Potter’s House Ministries, Cape Town, South Africa: Denouncing the prophet’s practice of spraying toxins on human beings as unethical and ill-legal; and that the local government intercede and to protect the rights of the people from harms way. Most importantly, the AFCMOA asks that the ecumenical organization listed above to raise their collective voice and denounce said practice to keep the people in the region informed and, most importantly, safe.
