Crisis of leadership in Zimbabwean churches
Such acts of immaturity
and sycophancy is a true reflection of how our church has been paralysed.
It leaves us with a big question to answer. Is the church in Zimbabwe
in crisis or the leadership is in such a crisis?
No wonder then people
like Robert Mugabe got their education from mission schools. It was
because the missionaries were there to save the poor and develop them.
Their main aim was to equip the meek so they could face the wicked.
The church leaders of that era were there to lead the flock and shepherd
it to the land of honey and milk.
What does it mean
when you find a man of the cloth like Pastor Msindo allegedly raping
his domestic worker? These questions do not need an answer. They answer
themselves as they point to the transgressions that are being committed
by the church leaders in broad daylight. They are no longer altruistic.
They are not prepared to die for the flock. They are actually prepared
to mislead the flock and dump it in the dungeons of fire and suffering.
They are not good leaders. These leaders are neglecting the flock.
