SDA Pastor Fired For Advising Couple To Be Naked In City Parks

By Sowetan

A Bloemfontein reverend who advised engaged couples to run naked through city parks has been fired by his church, Die Volksblad newspaper reported on Friday.

Reverend Steyn Venter, from the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Bloemfontein South Africa, was immediately fired after his disciplinary hearing, the president of the KwaZulu-Natal and Free State Conference Reverend BMP Ngwenya told the newspaper.

The church and Venter reportedly refused to comment further.

It was believed that Venter, who gave marriage counselling to young couples, was reported by church members for giving “improper advice”.

Couples were apparently told to strip naked and run through city parks and photographs were apparently taken of one couple.

“I feel bad about what had happened, but now it’s luckily over,” the report quoted one of the people involved.

According to a newspaper report in July, one of the couples agreed to have naked pictures taken.

The minister apparently kept copies of the pictures

    Damge Control. Good! But continue praying for him and , probably, counelling him as an individual & generally uproot that sexual seed that dogs most church members.

    There no reverends in SDA and SDA church does not fire its members but brings those that falter back to Christ. If there are people out there who call themselves reverends, I plead with you to change your titles because that is blasphemy. Reverend is the title only attributed to our God in Heaven. Read Psalms 111:9-He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend [is] his name.

    SDA doesn’t have reverends. Tumfweko news editor, I kindly beg you to repent and get baptized by the SDA and believe me, you will reform from becoming an agent of the devil to a follower of Christ. Your articles have led alot of people into untold miserly – change please.
