Cler­ics urged to re­ject ill-got­ten of­fer­ings

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Northeastern -

Cler­ics must not al­low them­selves to be ma­nip­u­lated by cor­rupt politi­cians who make huge fi­nan­cial of­fer­ings to en­sure their po­lit­i­cal sup­port, a cleric has said.

Speak­ing in Garissa on Sun­day dur­ing the 17th an­niver­sary of the Re­deemed Church, apos­tle Peter Kathalu said lead­ers with ill-got­ten wealth try to in­flu­ence cl­er­icks. They want them to per­suade their fol­low­ers to vote for them.

Kathalu said it’s im­moral to make of- fer­ings of stolen wealth to the church and said cler­ics should re­ject them.

“The pro­ceeds from cor­rupt deal­ings are bring­ing the church down. We should stick to the Bible teach­ings and noth­ing less,” he said.

He urged Chris­tians to scru­ti­nise the val­ues and con­duct of lead­ers they elect to rep­re­sent them.

“Don’t vote for par­ties. Vote for lead­ers,” he said.
