  2. let him face the wrath of the law, becouse this people always commiting this such crime in the name says prophetcies using cultism to cheat their felow human bein

  3. Rev. King deserves to die a violent death too. This will also teach all these fake “men of God” who commit all sorts of atrocities all in the name of worshipping God.

  4. I am happy for you Rev King because you have over a decade to genuinely repent and accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and saviour(2006 -2016). He should given opportunities to leave messages for other fake pastors

  5. Justice delayed is not justice denied. Am glad this day that the highest court of the land finally gave its verdict. Rev. King should appeal to God.

  6. This is a lesson for all. Anyone who takes the place of God would definitely receive his reward. God cannot be mocked. I do hope he has given his life to Christ during these years of mercy and grace.

  7. He tampered with God’ s glory and person. And our God is a jealous God. If king is God as he claims let him save himself or let him ask Christ for forgiveness. May God punish the devil 7x!!!
