There’s finally proof of Heaven.
A self-proclaimed “prophet,” South Africa’s Pastor Mostsoeneng Mboro, recently announced that he had ascended to Heaven on Easter Sunday, and he made sure to take pictures with his Samsung Galaxy S5 while he was up there just to silence any doubters.
If you wanted to see them, you just had to send him R5000 (about $340).
Having no takers and under possible extortion charges, he quickly promised to post the images on Facebook for free.
But that’s not happening now because — wait for it — his phone was stolen!
… he said he couldn’t post his selfies because his phone got stolen at a car wash in Katlehong.
One of Mboro’s bodyguards claims the pictures were real and he has seen it with his own eyes. “The pictures were really there, I saw them. We suspect one of the boys washing the Prophet’s car took the phone. But they all denied taking it, even after we beat [them],” the bodyguards told journalists.
What bad luck! Mboro finally had the opportunity to prove God’s existence once and for all — offering the evidence that skeptics are always looking for — and he didn’t bother making backup copies of his pictures, or emailing them to anybody, or safeguarding his phone, or posting them publicly anywhere and everywhere upon his arrival back on Earth.
I guess everyone learned their lesson: Next time the pastor asks for money, give it to him immediately.
This is the same pastor, by the way, who made international news five years ago because he was sexually abusing members of his own church — all in the name of Jesus, of course.
