Church has failed Zambians

Dear Editor,

When I saw the picture of Pope Francis performing the ritual of washing and kissing the feet of the followers of his church, it almost brought tears to my eyes.

I thought here is a man who leads probably the biggest Christian church in the world, humbling himself, bringing himself down to his feet to do exactly what Jesus did.

Now talk about Zambian church leaders? My God, they dare not try lest their mouths will vomit the Devil himself.

Some of our so-called pastors and bishops spend most of their time in politics so that the people can know them, and above all because they are fake.

Instead of saving the souls they busy saying “Lungu in midlife crisis” Lungu this, Lungu that. What a shame!

But this is not a surprise because Jesus said; “They will come in my name. They will heal the sick, perform miracles using my name, but be alert because many of them are false prophets!”

There is a bunch of bishops and pastors which I have no doubt is hell-bound because their action speakers louder than words.

It is either they are busy tricking the poor souls into sowing seeds of blessing without a single day of harvesting or they are busy insulting those in leadership. Nauseating!

To them I say a big shame and the sooner they leave the pulpit the better because of Jesus found them there, it will be worse.

It is becoming frightening to live in a country like Zambia where the Church itself is almost dead. A Christian nation for that matter!

I have been to our biggest health institution in Zambia UTH, on many occasions, believe me or not, it is a no-go area for many of churches in Zambia who falsely preach love.

If they cannot show love by visiting the sick in hospitals as often as possible why in the name of Holy Moses are they wearing those collars? To impress us? God forbid!

The Church in Zambia should gloriously should wake up and turn to God in a big way instead of always peeping into State House windows to see what President Lungu is eating or drinking so that they can rush to their newspapers to gain to front page publicity. That is for the cheap minds in my opinion.

The Church in Zambia can do better than that especially as we approach elections because Satanists will take an opportunity and hijack the nation and there will be untold misery.

Presently some church leaders have their speeches coated in sugar to deceive many. Again like Jesus said, they will come in sheep’s skins yet they are wolves ready to do damage.

Until our church leaders learn to humble themselves before God and move away from their love of this sinful world, they are nothing but cheap puppets on the string.

Let them preach love in earnest like Pope Francis is doing. Discussing President Lungu is sheer waste of their valuable time.

Keep it up Pope Francis God will always be with. God bless mother Zambia

Alliances, do they work?

Dear Editor

The 50 +1 clause in the new Zambian constitution has pressed a panic button in the political arena.

It has put loss fears in political parties and have resorted to forming alliances in the hope of garnering more votes in the August11 elections.

The latest being the Orange Alliance which involved three ambitious young men in the name of Eric Chanda, Miles Sampa who has since been  sacked as leader of the  group and Elias Chipimo of NAREP.

These men boasted that their alliance was there to stay until they kicked out PF from office.

Of late nearly all alliances appear to have crumbled as was the case with the PF and UPND pact which collapsed even before elections took place.

As was expected, the Orange Alliance is on the verge of collapse now that its leader Miles Sampa has been sacked and Democratic Front (DF) has been de-registered.

This simply means that the remaining 2 gentlemen (Chanda and Chipimo) have no stamina to stand on their own feet and it is only prudent that they join either the UPND (which is unlikely) or the PF (which is possible).

This may also be the beginning of the end of Sampa’s political career because the young man is overzealous and overrating himself.

That’s what happens to people who are proud and think money can win them votes.

Will the PF/MMD Alliance work? Let’s wait and see!!!

HH half-naked body guards sickening

Dear Editor,

The half-naked muscle men acting as body guards for HH are totally unsightly to me and I think to many others too.

How on earth can a normal human being be half-naked in public while protecting others?

This poses a health hazard especially with the advent of cholera. Please ba body guard dress up.

It is shameful that your boss is in suit while you are naked, after leaving wives and children at home at home.

Insincere politicians a let down

Dear Editor,

I give full marks to Fr Andrew Chewe Mukosa of Kitwe for calling on politicians to be honest with themselves and the people of Zambia they purport to serve.

I totally appreciate that no man is flawless in this world and this includes men of God. They falter sometimes, but can you imagine what this country will be like if we had honest and hardworking politicians?

This is why Fr Mukosa is right to state that political correctness, fairness, sacrifice and sincerity should be the key working words.

I just loved his quote in the Post: “What is unfortunate is that we are living in a society where leaders that claim to be Christians are doing things contrary to the teaching of Christ”

The message cannot be louder than that. Let those with ears hear because they are too many pretenders who are claiming to be working for poor Zambians yet their action tells a different story.

So as Zambians prepare to elect a new government, they should reflect deeply and sincerely and dissect the people they want to put into power before it is too late.

They should remember that all that glitters is not gold. They should not be deceived or swayed by empty emotions or the truth will not be shown to them.

And they can only do this by turning to God who will show them which leader to vote for.

They should not be deceived by money or materials because again Jesus said it will be easier for a camel to pass the eye of the needle than for a rich man to enter Heaven.

I am not in any way suggesting that all rich men will go to HELL. The majority will.

We have rich people like Aliko Dangote of Nigeria and Bill Gates of US giving back to the people. God will always remember them
