CCAP Nkhoma Synod pastoral letter warns on gays, abortion: ‘Malawi should not legalise sin’

Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP), Nkhoma Synod, has issued a pastoral letter in which among other issues, warns its members not to accept gay and abortion laws but speak out against them wherever they find themselves.

Rev. Dr Chatha Msangaambe, Moderator, Nkhoma Synod

The letter read to its congregants on Sunday, January 24, was short but to the point.

Among the issues, the clergy advises its members to continue praying against the legalization of same sex marriages and abortion, warning that God’s wrath comes because of such ills in society.

Tipitilize kupemphelera motsutsana ndi mzimu woipa kuti amuna kapena akazi azikwatirana okhaokha pakuti zimenezi zimabweretsa mkwiyo wa Mulungu,” the letter reads.

The leaders ask its members who are in positions of authority such as chiefs, politicians and many others to be the church’s ambassadors and openly speak out against these issues at any platform they find themselves.

The letter, co-signed by its moderator, Dr Chatha Msangaambe and the General Secretary, Dr Archwells Katani Mwale, opens with best wishes for the New Year, 2016, to its members, says that last year was a tough year to the church as well as to the whole nation of Malawi because of bad economy.

The church is asking its members to pray against the spirit of misuse of public funds in the church as well as in the national coffers.

It continues saying that this year has already started on a sad note with erratic rains and people experiencing hard times due to poor economic performance and hunger.

The Synod urges its members to rely on God for help as the Bible says.

The church leaders are asking their members to love and forgive each another and share the little they have in these hard times, and also appealing to them to pray for good rain.

    History always repeats itself! The Church promoted racism slavery! Even in yahwe himself did that ( if you read your bible in an unbiased way) the Rwandan Genocide was in fact preached from the pulpit! The bottom line is : this is hatred / discrimination is faith based! We have moved on in our view of the world! Rational thought and objective evidence is by far the most superior way than trust ancient dogma! Africa can only develop if the majority become free from the shackles of religion! It’s amazing that people say slavery was abolished but the truth is religious Nonsense brought by Europeans No Doubt! Is the mental slavery of epidemic proportion among Africans !

  9. Ma gay analipo ndipo alipo mu dziko muno but it shud not reach to an extent of government to approve this to be happening freely!!!! Mpakana zizafikanso pomaoneSera nkumachita poyera ndithu!! let the government Live this in the Hands of God pajatu we are a God fearing Nation as per said!!!!

    Jesus Christ commanded his Church saying iN MARK 16:15-16, “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized shall be saved, but whoever DOES NOT BELIEVE WILL BE CONDEMNED!!!!” He also said in Matthew 28:18-20, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Go therefore, and MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, TEACHING THEM TO OBSERVE ALL THINGS THAT I HAVE COMMANDED YOU. AND BEHOLD, I AM ALWAYS WITH YOU, TO THE END OF THE AGE!!!!” He repeated the same thing in Luke 24:46-47 saying, “Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that REPENTANCE AND FORGIVENESS OF SINS SHOULD BE PROCLAIMED IN HIS NAME TO ALL NATIONS BEGINNING FROM JERUSALEM!!!!” Therefore, Malawi and all you nations and creation!!!! Know that what The Church of Christ is preaching to you AS LONG AS IT AGREES WITH WHAT CHRIST COMMANDED HIS EARLY APOSTLE TO TEACH AND COMMAND ALL NATIONS FOR REPENTANCE BACK TO YAHWEH GOD AND TOTAL OBEDIENCE IS AS GOOD AS GOD HIMSELF COMMANDING YOU. OBEY therefore, His commands regardless of whatever position you hold in the society for the salvation of your soul, BECAUSE ACCORDING TO THE VERSES ABOVE, THE CHURCH IS DOING, AS CO-WORKERS WITH GOD, WHAT GOD HIMSELF DOES NOW IN CHRIST JESUS, EVEN AS IT IS WRITTEN IN 2 CORINTHIANS 5:20, “Therefore, we implore you on behalf of Christ, as ambassadors for Christ, GOD MAKING HIS APPEAL THROUGH US, ‘BE RECONCILED TO GOD.”

    OBEY GOD’S SERVANTS AND YOU OBEY HIM, REJECT GOD’S WORD SPOKEN THROUGH HIS SERVANTS, AND YOU ARE CONDEMNED ALREADY MALAWI OR WHOSOEVER YOU ARE IN THE WORLD, FOR GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS, BUT HE COMMANDS EVERYONE EVERYWHERE IN THE WORLD TO REPENT AND TURN BACK TO HIM THROUGH CHRIST JESUS, THE ONLY MEDIATOR SENT BY THE GODHEAD TO ALL CREATION TO RECONCILE ALL THINGS BACK TO THE FATHER THROUGH HIS SINLESS LIFE AND BLOOD OF THE CROSS OF GOLGOTHA.
    You do not have any excuse to DISOBEY ANY GOOD THING FALLING EXACTLY IN LINE WITH GOD’S WORD REVEALED TO THE APOSTLES OF CHRIST, EVEN IF IT IS SPOKEN BY A PHARISEE, BECAUSE even Jesus Christ Himself commanded US, concerning the SCRIBES AND THE PHARISEES IN MATTHEW 23:1-3- “Then Jesus said to the crowds and His disciples, “The Scribes and the Pharisee SIT ON MOSES’S SEAT, “SO DO AND OBSERVE WHATEVER THEY TELL YOU (ie. IF IT AGREES WITH MOSES), BUT DO NOT THE WORKS THEY DO. FOR THEY PREACH, BUT DO NOT PRACTICE (ie WHAT THEY PREACH in line with MOSES)!!!”
    Now Malawi, activists and all you nations! Know that what the Church is COMMANDING US AS MALAWIANS AND NATIONS is exactly what God is COMMANDING US CONCERNING THESE ISSUES OF GAYISM AND ABORTION (READ ROMANS 1:18-32 FOR PROOF). And it is God who also commands US ALL EVERYWHERE IN COLOSSIANS 3: 23, “WHATEVER YOU DO, WORK HEARTILY AS WORKING FOR THE LORD, NOT FOR MEN (eg OBAMA, FALSE PROPHETS/TEACHERS/PASTORS/APOSTLES/EVANGELISTS/MASTERS/ANTICHRISTS, UNO, AND ALL THOSE WICKED LEADERS OF THE WORLD!!!” For you all know that Christ Jesus will judge us ALL for whatever we think, say, or do in all our lives here, therefore repent now and be obedient to GOD’s WORD O! MALAWI AND NATIONS!!!!

    Maendaenda you are son of a demon, dont even dare to give further comments. There is nothing positive you can contribute

    1. November Rain says:

      Dada Gondwe, I think you are sick, in the head and somewhere or everywhere. When you demonised Maendaenda, I quickly checked around to appreciate the wrong that Maendaenda has committed to deserve such uncharitable as your choice of words but have found none.
      The mad man knows not nor accepts he is mad. You Gondwe or Gondwa are a mad man. You must seek help because your lust for psychological violence is regrettably stupid.

  12. Ya_smoothDJ says:

    @ Mamiee. we straight people and Christians,would not be bothered if these gays and lesbians opened their own church or moved to their own continent where they would do their thing. What really bothers us is the fact that they want our churches including Nkhoma synod to accept them to congregate amongst us and even getting to the extent of blessing their marriages. Now that is a problem we cant tolerate. Ever wondered why we are called straight? it means we are not bending nature.

  14. Tate Chitsulo says:

    Bt synod, what’s your stand on this issue? I know u are in support of mathanyula and abortion. This synod is controlled by the devil that’s why u r quite.

    1. Romento says:

      Do you really think Nkhoma Synod is better? These guys are no better than the gays they are talking about. Abusa a Nkhoma Synod alibe anzawo ponyambita ndalama za mpingo. A few years ago they even had the audacity to ask us their flock to contribute to refund donors for project funds which they had misappropriated. In their greed they have sold Church property like flats in Lilongwe and a forest in Dedza/Ntcheu – just to give a mere two examples.

      Akatopa ndi kuba ndalama tsopano kumakhala kukwera azikazi aKhristu awo. Anyone who thinks Nkhoma reverends have any moral authority to judge anyone has the IQ of a cabbage.

      Gays are sinners, just like the rest of us. We should avoid pointing to the speck in the eyes of gays while ignoring the log in our own eyes. No single person in Malawi, whether clergy or not, has the right to judge another person.

      And for those idiots saying the wrath of God will befall Malawi for recognising gay rights, my question is where was this wrath during all these years our Nkhoma Reverends have been stealing church funds and bonking amai amvano?

  15. Tate says:

    Blantyre Synod, whats is your stand on this? I know you are so greedy and you are in support of mathanyula, thats why some of Bt synod reverends are also in support of abortion.This synod is controlled by the devil.

  16. Nkhamanga kingdom says:

    If Malawians are suffering this time it is because of these mathanyula issue a sin is a sin to god there is no compromise , Malawi is a Christian country and it will remain a Christian country those who want to compromise on sins let them go to the countries where they do compromise sins God will never entertain the stupid things remember GOD cleated a Man and a woman to have kids not a woman and woman or a man and a Man our bible is our pipe in our day to day life
    thanks

  17. Jumpha says:

    Nkhani ya gay ndinkhani yogwada ndikupempherera kwambiri,it looks simple now but time come god will punish Malawi as a family,

  18. francis says:

    please do not try to change a sin to be a rights may be i do not understand what you are trying to drive at by promoting gay rights and how special are they. Mind you this gay thing i feel its a choice not a right because no one was born to be a gay. They choose to depart from the norms and value of our Malawi so why can’t they just go to enjoy there gay in western where the are adapting from not here. Chonde nose mukulimbikisa zimenezi kuzera mu dzina la ufulu lapani ,mulungu akufuna inu musasochelese anthu chomwe ine ndikuziwa ufulu kumalawi uliko osati za umathanyula. Tili ndi zinthu zambiri zoti tizikamba njira zoti tithane ndi mabvuto omwe Malawi akukumana nawo!!!!!!

  19. Kalwena says:

    Well done Nkhoma SYnod, i wish all Churches could follow suit, I mean those who worship the Most high God, fashion and styles will come and pass but He remain forever and ever. I just want to remind those that are fighting for the legalisation of these stupid acts,that they will not escape the wrath of God.

  20. JOSE says:

    Mameee you clearly are gay. Stop talking shit. Sodom and Gomola were destroyed yes Loti and his family were served but when Jesus came to save the human race from total destruction, he sent out his disciples to go up to the end of the world and preach the word of God so that the world should be saved especially those who believed it. Therefore the men of God are doing just that. You are trying to defend your stupid lifestyle by relating to our dressing. Let me remind you to the bible teaching that before Adam sinned there was nothing called nakedness till he sinned that was when knew his nakedness and he made his wear from leaves. Now we are his descendants we already know our nakedness ( born of sin ) therefore we cover ourselves with clothes. God has endowed man with knowledge of making things like clothes and you name them. How wonderful God is. Therefore that is why we are wearing clothes, no need for the men of God to strip.

  21. MAENDAENDA says:

    The Analyst, There is so much wisdom and dipper meaning in your comment…

    1. The Analyst says:

      While it takes wisdom to see wisdom, it takes courage to acknowledge the existence of it.
      I appreciate your wisdom and admire your courage.

  22. Joe says:

    If we wish Malawi to become more poorer and poorer, go ahead and legalise sin. What on earth can sensible authorities accept this diabolical idea. Not in my beautiful country of Malawi. NO. Who do you want to please, man or God ? Think of poverty, irrigation, solar energy etc and not this stupidity called gay rights.

  23. Let Us Pray says:

    Your Pastoral Letter forgot to pray for Gule (Nyau). Too much Gule you Nkhoma Synod People. Kaya muzatheka kaya? Achigwilizano = Chisamba. Azibusanu = Makanja. Akulu Ampingo = ?? Thus why you even fail to promote women’s rights to preach in your Churches, mumvekele Mulungu amalesa. Kuti? You hypocrites!!! you better shut up tingakusabwazeni apa. Mulungu yemweyu akulangani.

  24. nyamayasauka says:

    shame on you who seem to know the sin of homo but you say its the right of someone. U cud not have been here if your mother had sex with same sexual partner. Nthawi yakusadziwa idapita, tsoka lanu

  25. Funzo says:

    Fornication, we are told, is sin but it isn’t illegal so, by the syhod’s logic, it should be legislated on!

  26. Phwisa says:

    Mameee’s comment is wrong. Human right is to use your anusurika for kunyela. It is a human wrong for using your anus for things other thanks what God made it for. No experiment! Kill all homos, lesbians. We can not sell our Malawi right with aid which whatever the case will still be withdrawn one day homo or no homo

  27. atim says:

    Christianity began when David Livingstone discovered Nyasaland(I don’t know how you discover people as if we were switched off and he flipped us on ) and other missionaries. We actually adopted the western way of worshipping. Before we were converted to believe the bible we were spiritual people.
    If you are not willing to accept GLT people then you are actually bigots because the very Churches in Scotland that told you to abandon your spiritual worship incited by our forefathers are happy to leave side by side with their sons and daughters who are gay or lesbian. So who are you to choose? if I can quote from the bible Jesus said “let the one without sin cast the first stone” powerful words. Now listen very careful it was a parable telling you that not to judge others, just concentrate on your spiritual enlightenment other then trying to prosecute people you deem to be sinners.

  28. Kupusa basi dolo ndi msonda anangonena kuti ma gay aphedwe inu ndiye mukuti tipemphere kwambiri kuti ma gay asativutise ife tizivutika kupemphera gay tikumuona? Niye bola kumupha msonda ndi dilu

    PALIBE MUNTHU AMENE ANGALORE ZA UCHITSIRU ANGATI IZIZ ABUSA OLO MUKANAPANDA KULEMBA SIZOTHEKA AYI

  30. mameeee says:

    First of all,No sin is greater than the other. sin is sin..your wrong to indicate in your letter that things like these(meaning gays and lesbians) bring the wrath of God. ANY SIN BRINGS FORTH THE WRATH OF GOD.

    Secondly, no one is promoting same sex marriages,you are misunderstanding things. What they are doing is appealing to people to rocognise RIGHTS of lesbians and gays. There is DIFFERENCE THERE…

    Thirdly, do not dare use the “this is a wetsern culture ” line. You people are hypocrites. Almost half of the things that we do are western. What you people do is to choose those that suit you people better and those that do not suit you, you happily label them western.If you do not want western things then u might as well strip and walk naked coz guess what, the idea of wearing clothes is western too.

    Now, you sometimes bring about issues of morality when you are critisizing gays,lesbians. Many people in Malawi have done immoral things way immoral this worse that being gay or lesbians. If you wnt to critisize people go and advocate for more important things lyk death of rapits or those who have commited difilement or something coz guess what, these people have actualy violated someones human right. What right have gays and lesbians commited?

    Lastly, KODI MESA GOD DESTROYED A CITY BEFORE BECAUSE OF ALL THE SINS THE PEOPLE WERE COMITING? BUT I REMEMBER THAT WHEN GOD DESTROYED EARTH WITH WATER, NOAH AND HIS FAMILY SURVIVED AND WHEN GOD DESTROYED SODOM LOT AND HIS FAMILY SURVIVED COZ THEY WERE GUD PIPO.. SO MY ADVISE TO YOU IS DO NOT BE CONCERNED WITH GOD DESTROYING THE COUNTRY COZ IF YOU ARE GOOD YOU SHALL SURVIVE LYK LOT AND NOAH . YOU CAN DO EVRYONE A FAVOUR BY SHUTTING T HE HELL UP AND WORK ON YOU RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD SO THAT WEN HE DECIDES TO PUNISH THE COUNTRY, YOU SHUD SURVIVE.

  34. 2016 welcome says:

    Nanunso ingokhalani chete anthu akuba inu. Much as I hate homosexuality, you the clergy in Malawi do have a higher moral ground to issue puritanical statements. You at the synod are thieves and hardcore nepotists. Just imagine a donor funded project the director is the father, the administrator is the son the secretary is the daughter the messenger is the nephew. Not only that donors have pumped in a lot of money to fund an orphan home but all the money for more than ten years go amiss. Not only that it had to take the donors to send expatriate craftsmen to have the hospital maintained before that all donations were going in your pockets. Not only that donated hospital and domestic equipment meant for the hospital and synod end up in your homes . Wina ayankhe mwamwano apadi ndikutchulani maina.

  35. naha says:

    The church has no right to interfere in these issues. These reverends, pastors do not feed us and the children whose fathers run easy. And on the issue of homosexuality, people can do what they want. Stop dictating what we should be doing in our lives. Christianity is not African.

    Every sane person not only a Malawian but world at large would not entertain this behavior, we accept and welcome your advise Mai synod. One point I want to make is advise your ministers to stop impregnating young girls and other people’s wives coz they are men in colas, it’s disheartening to learn about such kind of foolish behavior, you even impregnate your in house, close to incest, is it better than gayism. This should stop otherwise we will publish the names and details next time we this continuing.

    O………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..O
    This message is very encouraging and very good . . .
    And anything that is good, is worth having . . .
    And believe me, anything that is worth having, is worth having more . . .
    And more of this something worth having, is what I will share with you now. Lend me your ears, thus; I beg of you.
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
    In each and every one of us is both evil and good. That’s why in one moment we are friendly and angry or violent, the next. This is because in us all, are both angels and devils – its inborn; moving with us to work, sleeping with us in beds e.t.c. Thats why the same individual generally behaves differently, in different situations; good sometimes and bad in others.

    Those people who are perpetually evil hearted are born with more devils than angels; likewise those who are natually kind – born with more angels and less devils. However, this can be changed if we choose to; by feeding, watering and providing an environment that allows more of each of these angels or devils to thrive in us.
    Thats why some people, though born one thing, they grow up to be something else.
    Good-hearted while others are evil-hearted; some quiet others garrulous; some violent, others peaceful e.t.c

    How we feed or water these angels or devils is a process of time cultivated by little, unnoticeable, its-oky everyday behaviours; which accumulate and grow into more of either the angels hence less of the devils or viceversa.
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
    In short, there is always evil and good in us all; it is our choice on more of which one of these we feed up and bring out. And how we bring them out is a question of how we live our lives everyday.
    Thus, let us try as much as possible to live more like angels and less like devils (by among others, stopping to thieve, to fornicate, to do dishonest business deals).
    Otherwise, one of the best gifts that God blessed us with is conscience – the ability to distinguish wrong from good. Let us all be grateful for this gift.

  44. Darlington Harawa says:

    We should remind these people that abortion and same sex marriages were there even during Jesus times. In Sodom and Gomora this was existing. The abortion laws we are using now were developed even before Christianity came to Malawi knowing the practice was there. The church has never at any point preached that abortion is good but women from the same churches continue dying from the same cause, what a shame. Let us continue to save women lives

  45. opportunist says:

    I concur with u church.

  46. Wangaaata Chambaakatha says:

    Za masimba basi, the whole synod praying against gay/LGBT hate – how many members of your church as gay? Why don’t you just banish those gay members out of your church? What if gay people started their own church or don’t want to be part of your stinking CCAP anyway? Who fucking cares about an aged, outdated group like CCAP? We really don’t give a fucking whisker about these religious bigots who want to politicize a simple matter of human freedom.
    Do you ascribe to everything muslims do? Do you ascribe to ganja masters — no!! but you leave them alone. Malawi has always had gays in the population, estimated at less than 2% in any population regardless of how westernized or biblically archaic the population is. So, lying that gay rights are a matter or culture from the west is foolish and stupid propaganda from people like you Dr Chatha and Dr Kawalala and the likes. Malawians know better and that’s why in 5 years from now, no one will care about your church groups – they be busy living their own lives like people do in the west. Sundays are for football and other outdoor life and not singing worship to a so called divine being up in the sky.
    Wake up Malawi – my motherland – we are a land of the free not a god fearing nation. My foot

    You church elders by now you should know that there is a lot of legal things that are happening within Malawi. Until you sort out the cause of these issues you can criticise the government. This country (malawi) is not a God fearing country simply because people are suffering too much. It is a shame to see that after 52 years of self rule we are still suffering from the same diseases. Sometimes i wonder if God really exist.
