Why the church must campaign against the death penalty

August 15, 2016
“Nearly five years have gone after Zimbabwe adopted a new constitution yet there seems to be no finality on the matter of the death penalty.” VERY few things are probably as divisive as the subject of the death penalty; even the religious world is sharply divided on this issue. Almost ...

The 7 Pillars of Society Series and the Way Forward

July 27, 2016
What we sought to do through the series on the 7 Pillars of Society was to lay the foundation, and give context to our approach on national issues pertinent for the well-being of Zimbabwe. It is becoming apparent that the fault lines that polarised Zimbabweans to the 2008 climax are ...

Silence in the face of State brutality is complicity, Prophets!

July 12, 2016
‘IF you are neutral in situations of injustice then you have taken the side of the oppressor’ Desmond Tutu. The Archbishop’s prophetic remarks said it all when it comes to the Zimbabwean religious ‘prophets/fathers’ deafening silence following the injustices and violence being meted out by Zanu PF to poor, hungry ...

GOSPELNEURS (PART ONE)

July 8, 2016
I am writing this article with the purpose of disparaging the philosophies and the “improper” use of the Bible by self-proclaimed Pentecostal movement prophets with the objective of achieving selfish means or to spreading a “false” Gospel other from what is revealed in the Bible. Armed with Biblical defence I shall lay bare as we go, the error of the principles of these preachers of prosperity so called Gospelneurs. My aim is to defend the true ...

IN the wake of an avalanche of healings, signs and wonders in the spiritual world today, conceited efforts must be made to dispel the dangerous claims by some members of the clergy regarding their capabilities to treat ailments brought before them. The world in general, and Africa in particular, has ...

Miracles or magic: Unpacking the difference

June 20, 2016
THE buzzword in religious circles today is ‘miracles’; a church either has to have miracles or it simply has nothing to offer. This has resulted in a situation where people, mesmerized by the miracles, have to double­ dip for salvation. Double ­dipping for salvation relates to people belonging to traditional ...

Zimbabwe lacks religious leaders who can speak truth to power

May 30, 2016
POLITICS and religion remain among the most controversial topics in the affairs of man. Clergymen who dabble in politics are often viewed exclusively and somewhat treated with suspicion; they are often viewed as political players dressed in religious robes. It would appear, to some, that there should be no interface ...

Unpacking the ‘man of God’ misnomer

May 24, 2016
THE English International version dictionary defines a misnomer as ‘the use of a term that is misleading; it is the use of an inappropriate name’. A misnomer is a term whose common usage conflicts with a technical sense. Simply put, it is a term which does not mean what it ...

Look for pure wisdom from above

April 5, 2016
Life is about competition, dominance and outdoing each other. Competition is healthy and rewarding if it is meant to nurture talent. But it can be debilitating if losing is used as a put-down by spectators or other people who hold a stake. This competition we witness every day in its ...

People must desist from blasphemous remarks

March 29, 2016
ZIMBABWE is a country under political and economic siege. It is a country in dire straits such that people would virtually do or say anything to ensure their political survival.
