We sort answers from Dan Komia psychologist and religion expert, he describes Mackenzie demand for food in court as a reality test to controversial preacher.According to him Mackenzie was using church to lure and woodwink his vulnerable followers into cult sect just for other purpose not purely spiritual.
“Its is true definition of hypocrisy…he taught his followers to starve to death to see Jesus and now he is crying for food when jailed .. it’s a clear indicator that he conned, spiritually misled and betrayed his followers.He used their souls to other things.” He said in interview with Ghetto Radio News.
