Nelson Chamisa attended church in Bulawayo before his mega rally in Gweru. Zimbabwean Political Leaders seek God as Election Day approaches

The leader of the MDC Alliance Nelson Chamisa left the congregates at prophet Chiza’s Eagle Life Assembly clamouring for more.

Pastor Chamisa the presidential aspirant in the landmark plebiscite slated for the 30/07/2018 chose to attend church at Eagle Life Assembly, a church led by Prophet Blessing Chiza.

Earlier in the year, the Bulawayo-based Prophet Blessing Chiza made headlines when he asked all Shona people to apologise to the Ndebele people for the Gukurahundi atrocities perpetrated in the 1980’s.

Speaking in his sermon Chamisa based his teaching on the foundation of 2 Chronicles 7:14

 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Separation of church and state is misunderstood. 

Many have stated disaffection because politicians in Zimbabwe have in the run up to this election frequented churches and used the pulpit for political campaigns. Many have asked the question should the church be involved in politics?

Yes the church should be involved in politics. The argument that the Constitution separates church and state is widely misunderstood. That provision is supposed to keep the government from interfering with peoples religion and the way they worship God, not keep religious people from participating in government or politics.

The Word “Church” is the Word “Ecclesia” and this is a “Political” word! “Godliness exalts a nation…” Proverbs 14:34
“Without wise leadership, a nation is in trouble, but with good counselors there is safety.” Proverbs 11:14

William Wilberforce was an English Christian Politician – who abolished slavery because of his strong Christian conviction.

If Christians stand for Truth, Justice they cannot but help, become involved in politics.

In the Old Testament we see; Daniel and Joseph Serving God in the office of Presidency.

In the New Testament we have Sergius Paulus, the Roman proconsul (Governor of Rome) , who was converted to Christianity and remind in office.

Jesus said we were to be salt and light in the world, the yeast in the dough of society. We are to exercise Kingdom Influence for the benefit of all,

“Archbishop Desmond Tutu said in the thick of the battle against apartheid, ‘When people say that the Bible and politics don’t mix, I ask them which Bible they are reading'”.
