The Flood Of False Prophets And Pastors In Africa

Pray 6Poor Africans have to sacrifice to get fake pastors riding in expensive cars.

When Jesus Christ foretold the major trends that would precede His return to earth, the first sign He mentioned was religious imposters who would come in His name. How serious do people take that warning?

Africa at the moment is experiencing a chain of mushroom pastors. Small churches are springing up everywhere, including classrooms, small sheds or someone’s veranda. Poverty and lack of education have forced a lot of people to become pastors in Africa, going after money and neglecting the duties of a true pastor.

To be a pastor one needs to study at a religious institution, learn the scriptures thoroughly, follow theological training and complete seminary courses.  After studying, he is then ordained as a pastor, but in Africa, the story is different. Only few that have absolute confidence in faith take the challenge to go to school.

To many being a pastor is the easiest profession, after dropping out of school. You can often see them at public places and in buses, preaching to people and passengers. Well, I don’t think it’s wrong to preach, after all Jesus told his disciples “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” but the fact that many used God’s name to commit crime is very disturbing.

What kind of a pastor would tell a woman to be naked before prayers, to receive the Holy Spirit? What kind of pastor would tell his female congregation not put on pants, so that the air could circulate on every part of the body? What kind of a pastor tells a woman he could make her pregnant if her husband has failed? What kind of pastor would perform such deeds and call himself a genuine pastor?

“Stealing in the name of the Lord, my father’s house of worship has become a den of thieves, stealing in the name of the Lord. This reminds me of a song by Jamaican Reggae star, Max Romeo. The so-called pastors neglect the real duties of a pastor and continuously deceive people, often using this Biblical quotation: “Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.” Ecclesiastes 11.

Without knowing where they went for their powers, some African pastors practiced witchcraft, used marine spirits and magical powers to baffle people, allowing them to gain a number of followers. The poor people with diverse problems start following these fake pastors, giving them all their money and properties, while in misery and poverty.

They claim can cure impotency, make a childless woman fertile and cure diseases including Aids. The activities of false pastors in Kenya forced the country’s attorney general to ban new religious organizations from registering. The sharp increase of fake pastors is tearing African societies apart. Badly affected countries are Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa etc.

The problem in African countries is, there is no law which stops a man from practicing his faith, thus; the activities of fake pastors in Africa can’t be stopped since the leaders are just corrupt like the pastors. But we will continue to remind and warn them with the words of the great teacher.

Jesus said “For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.” 2 Corinthians 11:13.

Jesus Christ The Superstar: Questions To Ask If I Meet Him

Bible 4

One of the greatest Biblical men ever to step on this planet 2000 years ago was Jesus Christ. From the town of Nazareth in what is now called Israel, Jesus traveled about the region and gained a large followers.

His powers and claims to be the son of God didn’t only give him love, but hatred from an empire of deceitful enemies. After a few years, the religious leaders in Jerusalem falsely accused him of crimes and handed him over to the Roman authorities and he was executed.

His execution didn’t bring to the end of his doctrine. A short time later, his followers preached in the name of Jesus Christ, whom they said rose from the dead. More and more followers were added to this movement which has become the Christian church of today.

Jesus healed the sick, lame, the blind and cast away demons tormenting mankind. He thought about how to love, to give and to forgive, but like many of his followers, I don’t understand some of his teachings.

Jesus said “Bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. Whoever hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also; and whoever takes away your coat, do not withhold your shirt from him either.” Luke 6: 28-29.

I understand Jesus wants peace and love among people. It’s, therefore, necessary to pray for our enemies and those that mistreat us. But how can the great teacher tell us to do these things when people continue to abuse and mistreat other people, taking their humbleness and submissiveness as weaknesses to dominate mankind?

Above all, the great teacher said: “Whoever hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also.” What about if I collapse and never regain consciousness after giving him the other cheek? I love Jesus with all my heart. He knows it, but I am not going to give the other cheek to anyone who slaps me. I need to slap back in return before he kills me.

Christians all over the world believe in the second coming of Christ. Nobody knows when he is coming. He said, “For you, yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night.” Whether dead or alive when he comes, I believe I will meet him to explain these teachings I find them hard to follow or obey.

Please Support Campaign To End Abuse Of Autistic Children And Adults

Autism

Autism sufferers tend to be more creative.

All over the world, children are daily abused. Unfortunately, the abuse has no limit, it is extended to autistic patients too. Teachers, pupils and administrators disproportionately single out autistic students for violent punishment in the name of discipline. The Autistic Rights Together ‘ART’ is therefore calling everyone to support  the Campaign to end abuse of autistic children and adults. Who are ‘Autistic Rights Together?ART.png

Autistic Rights Together ‘ART’

Under Fiona O’ Leary, ‘ART’ is a non profit charity organisation consisting of Autistic people and like minded NT’s (Neurotypicals) who passionately believe in the empowerment of Autistic people to achieve equality and respect in modern day society.

We exist to provide true advocacy for the Autistic Community, by representing the all too often forgotten children, adolescents and adults on the Autistic Spectrum who live under the negative and shameful stigma which exists in society today. A stigma driven by the search for a cure, for the elimination of Autism, allowing for blatant and cruel experimentation and dehumanisation which often goes unchallenged by so many prominent Autism organisations and charities.

We exist to give Autistic people a voice, a meaningful input into the decisions made by the powers that be in regard to the future of those who live on the Autistic Spectrum.

For too long Autistic people have been excluded and ignored, we say no more, no more about us without us!

We hope to provide a platform for change, to be representative of the Autistic People who desperately crave the chance to be given the opportunity to be heard.

We hope to educate society at every level, to change the public perception of Autism from one of fear and negativity to one of Acceptance, empowerment and true inclusion.
