*A 15-year-old girl from a “very religious family” is very pregnant and claiming that the child’s father is none other than Jesus.
I’ll give you a second to absorb that one…No seriously, go ahead.
And believe me, people have not taken this claim, made by 15-year-old Latifah Smith-Nabengana, lying down…so to speak.
The girl elaborates however, claiming that she was visited by an “Angel of God” in July 2015. That presence told her that she had been chosen to bear Christ’s son.
“He told me that he was a Nephilim, like those described in the Bible,” Smith-Nabengana explained. “He told me that he had a message from Jesus, He said that I was going to be pregnant, and that I would give birth to a son, Jesus’ son.”
Be still please. I am having audio-visual flashbacks over here…trying to figure how this may have sounded.
I mean, were harps playing? Or did a big, booming voice speak?
Obviously, I’ve been watching too much TV.
I feel obligated to add that Nephilims are mythical creatures mentioned in Genesis 6:4 :
“The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.”
According to ZimbabweNewsDay, this type of creature has not been heard of over the last few thousand years; which is why the teenager’s claim has surprised everyone in her family.
Lucky for her, the family didn’t question it. In fact, they ate it up lock, stock and barrel…being very religious themselves.
Dr. William Franklin Murphy, the MD. who has been following the girls’ pregnancy, says he is aware of his patient’s version, but can’t confirm or invalidate them right now.
“For all I know, her pregnancy seems normal,” saya the gynecologist.
“Her claims of “Virgin pregnancy” are technically true, but that doesn’t mean there was a divine intervention. I can tell you that it’s a boy, but there is no way for me to determine if it is Jesus’ son until he is born.
If she asks for a DNA test at that time, then we can tell you who the father is,” the doctor concludes.
Some have been supportive of the teen, while others…not so much.
And me? Well, I’ve got this sneaky suspicion there’s a little nappy-headed boy running around somewhere…laughing.
But that’s just me.
Latifah Smith-Nabengana wants to prove that she is telling the truth. So reports say the girl does want a paternity test after the birth of her son.
Yippee! That may not be too hard if they can catch up with Jesus. I hear he’s pretty busy.
