KAMPALA – Zoe Ministries lead pastor Elvis Mbonye, has lashed out at some of the religious leaders and scientists for he says are allegedly betraying religious institutions by misguiding the president on the reopening of these institutions.
According to Mbonye, Christian leaders and scientists in the influential positions should have guided the president rightly and ensured the reopening of places of worship.
“These scientists that advised the president who claimed to be Christians, if you know them take them this prophecy. If in the ministry of Health there were remnants advising the president, we would have taken the path where you see the Godly influence,” he said.
Mbonye shared that in the past there were Christians that took up positions of authority but they went there as politicians who are Christians not as Christians who are politicians.
“They didn’t go there with an agenda of heaven and because of that they are serving a worldly system instead of serving the heavenly kingdom. A man who hides his faith in times of adversity and supports darkness has no right to stand later and say he is of the light as a leader,” he said.
He explained that there are people that God showed him that have been scheming against the kingdom of God and asked them to repent when there is still enough time.
“Not everything that is called a church is actually the church of the Lord and not everyone who is called a pastor is actually a pastor, teacher is not actually a teacher, prophet is not actually a prophet. I thank God for this period. It has unmasked some of these people,” he said.
President Museveni in his last address eased restrictions on the second lockdown but places of worship were directed to remain closed for the next 60 days.
He advised the religious leaders to continue conducting prayers virtually with a minimum of 10 people allowed to lead service.
