EDITORIAL: Namibia too soft on controversial churches
08 June 2021 | Opinion
Assisted by desperate, gullible followers, contemporary Christianity has become a diluted version of its former self. It is characterised by falsehoods, the robbery of the faithful, deceit and grand-scale thievery.
Author Billy Crone called it a “Satanic war on the Christian”.
Today, the devil stands a better chance of making it into heaven than the bulk of Christian preachers. The flock that follows these fake preachers is so sensitive they are prepared to kill anyone who dares question the characters calling themselves prophets and healers.
Clad in designer suits and sharp-pointed shiny shoes, these preachers steal from their blindfolded followers and live luxurious lives with their families.
Behind closed doors, they fight over money and women – some of whom bore children with these so-called men of the cloth.
Galatians 2:4, as if it predicted the future, reads: “This matter arose because some false believers had infiltrated our ranks to spy on the freedom we have in Christ Jesus and to make us slaves”.
Steve Biko’s pronouncement that “the most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed” comes to mind when battling with this subject. The faithful have been turned into yes-man robots; cowards who possess no mind of their own to question the wrong.
