Mombasa - Kenya National Congress of Pentecostal Churches and Ministries Union have urged the government to protect its citizens from fake preachers who are misleading the society through fake miracles.
Speaking to the press at Praise Chapel Church at Kizingo in Mombasa County on Thursday afternoon, the Union chairman, Tee Nalo, has said the number of fake preachers in Kenya needs attention.
He said most of the preachers are misleading worshipers by misinterpreting, misusing and distorting scriptures cautioning them to stop it completely.
“It is now becoming evident that there are people who have gotten into the noble calling of preaching the gospel with the motive of enriching themselves by all means. Therefore, we would like to caution those who are abusing the freedom of worship in the country,” cautioned Nalo.
The preachers appealed to worshipers to be weary of such church leaders.
“We would like to appeal to our members to be committed to a church family and a genuine pastor. We admonish them not to chase after miracles because there are miracles that are not from God, but evil forces,” He added.
However, on matters affecting the nation the preachers warned all PSV drivers to exercise extra caution on the roads calling on the government to stand firm and deal with traffic police officers who extort money from them and appealed to the government to take police reforms seriously.
“We cannot afford to lose Kenyans at the rate that we have seen it the past. Traffic police must desist from taking bribes and enforce the law,: they appealed.
On the referendum issue, the preachers said the current call for amendments is hurried and that there is need to review the key areas in the constitution before enacting the proposed changes.
They cautioned that if this is not taken keenly, it might divide the nation.
