Clergy support move to vet pastors

11 December 2013, 15:24 Wilshere

Nakuru - Men of the cloth in Nakuru County have lauded the government's move to vet pastors, saying that it will help reduce cases of fake pastors in the country.

Speaking on Tuesday in Nakuru, Bishop Laban Wekesa of the International Pentecostal Holiness Church observed that many of the churches in the country were not founded to spread the Gospel but for commercial gain.

" We look forward to the time when pastors who are out to demean the Gospel and use it for monetary gains will be exposed and legal action taken against them," he said.

Wekesa also observed that some Christians are being manipulated to give out money to 'earn blessings'.

" I support the government for encouraging pastors to study in recognised Theological colleges," he said.

He pointed out that some of the pastors were issuing fake marriage certificates that have not been approved by the relevant authorities.

The Bishop added that it was only through effective Theological training that the Gospel could thrive in the country.
