A preacher got the beating of his life for daring to preach inside a gym in Kenya.
A Kenyan preacher reportedly got battered by some gym attendants who decided to teach him a lesson for preaching inside the gym.
The freelance preacher identified as Pastor Levi who usually visits private homes and businesses and even the county market to preach, visited a fitness gym in Kakamega, taking his message of the gospel with him in a bid to encourage gym users to 'change their ways and COVER UP'.
Starting his sermon, he said "No one goes to the gym with plausible intention, allow me ten minutes to share a word with your members.
The gym instructor identified as Pablo attempted to walk him out of the premises, but the trainers asked him to allow him say what he came to say. They reportedly said “Muache aseme chenye anataka (Let him say what he came for)."
As soon as he got the chance, he launched into a full-on attack on the attendants saying:
“You are greedy eaters and drinkers who never fast and pray that’s why you have registered for aerobics. You spend thousands every month to cut weight when you could simply pray and fast then take the thousands to orphans and widows if you were true to the biblical teachings.”

He then turned towards some ladies in training gears and said:
“There are ladies who come here with sole intent to get the body shape to win people’s husbands, those you call sponsors. That will take you to hell it is time to pray and fast the good shape and good husband will come with fasting.”
This got the women angry and one of them said “Fukuzeni ako kamtu (Kick that guy out).” But that didn't faze the pastor as he continued with his preaching, pointing at a woman's cleavage he said:“What can someone not see in this woman,” pointing at a man in tight gear he said “What is that man showing women in the gym?”.
To another woman he also said “Mama what are you putting on, who cannot see your husband's property? This gym is a house of lusting.”
When the trainers couldn't take it anymore, they descended on him and beat him up severely. The pastor was not bothered by the beating as he likened himself to prophets and preachers in the bible who were molested for trying to spread the gospel. He was heard saying:“Even prophets were roughed up some killed and put in jail.”
