A pastor identifed as Aloysius Bugingo and the head pastor of House of Prayer Ministries, Kampala, Uganda has sparked hatred after he burned hundreds of bibles.
He said that the bible verses were misleading for his congregation.Some of the lines that have been tampered with in the translations according to Pastor Bugingo, are those which talk about fasting and the Lent period. He also claimed the King James Bible version contained the word ‘Holy Ghost’ more times than it did the word ‘Holy Spirit’.
Bugingo’s church is attended mostly by Makerere University students in Uganda and the congregation boasts of a total number of about 6,000 people. Apart from burning the King James Version, the pastor who also owns Salt FM and TV station, set other versions including the New Testament and the Good News Bible on fire, after claiming to have omitted some verses.
