So called re­li­gious churches are prop­ping up from nowhere claim­ing to have a rev­e­la­tion from God. How do we know that they are a true church and God has re­ally called them?

Some of the leaders of these so called churches have no idea of the­ol­ogy or any hint how to trans­late the Bible. Cer­tain cus­toms and rit­u­als of the Bible was for that pe­riod and have no rel­e­vance to us now.

A lot of fam­i­lies have been di­vided be­cause of the wrong doc­trine be­ing pro­claimed, chil­dren have been de­prived of ed­u­ca­tion and the fu­ture of young girls ru­ined caus­ing emo­tional trauma.

But putting the leader in jail has not stopped the church from achiev­ing their ob­jec­tives. These type of churches should be closed. It is high time that the Government should step in and reg­u­late the churches and scru­ti­nise the leaders to see if they have a li­cense to op­er­ate, are ed­u­cated and not wak­ing up from sleep and be­come leaders. The leaders must have a Po­lice clear­ance with no ad­verse records.
