Fake prophets do­ing so­ci­ety a dis­ser­vice

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Business -

ED­I­TOR — While ev­ery­body is seized with how to deal with the drought and its at­ten­dant food short­ages, lit­tle is be­ing done about peo­ple’s spir­i­tual health.

The youths are the most ef­fected, what with porn movies and drugs be­ing cheaply availed to them on the lo­cal mar­ket? Most men of the cloth have fallen for the devil’s most ef­fec­tive bait, the ‘honey trap’.

Ev­ery­day, the print me­dia is awash with cases of adul­tery and rape in­volv­ing pas­tors and prophets.

In­stead of be­ing mar­riage coun­sel­lors, some are now mar­riage wreck­ers. Who shall rein in the way­ward youths when the clergy is chas­ing after women and money?

In churches ev­ery ser­mon is now tainted with mon­e­tary is­sues. We need fish­ers of men not dol­lars.

Nude par­ties and al­co­hol abuse have be­come part of life for to­day’s youths, spir­i­tual nour­ish­ment and preach­ing the Word is now un­der ‘any other busi­ness’.

The har­vest is big but true work­ers are scarce. May true prophets stand up? Thomas Murisa.
