THE escalating number of pastors indulging in abominable things such as sexual immorality, swindling members and giving fake prophecies in Zambia is worrisome.
To get into the crux of the matter, the ‘men of God’ are supposed to conduct themselves in a Christian manner devoid of any sin in the eyes of our Creator, the Almighty God.
In the recent past, some people, particularly the church members, have been swindled out of their hard-earned money, some women and girls raped and defiled respectively, let alone given fake prophecies.
It is very unfortunate that these vices are being perpetrated by the so-called pastors in a country which was declared as a Christian nation.
The mushrooming of churches, which in most cases are not regulated, can be attributed to the rising cases of pastors indulging in abominable activities.
The question begging for an answer is: Why has the number of fake pastors escalated in Zambia?
My earnest appeal to the Ministry of National Guidance and Religious Affairs is that all church activities and the conduct of pastors must be scrutinised; they should operate within the confines of the law.
As for the fake pastors, they should be arrested so that they can face the full wrath of the law. Ultimately, this will deter would-be offenders.
