Pastors ‘defiling God’, says Apostle Kayala : Insists men of God ‘can’t run away from posh cars’

Christ Fellowship Centre For All (CFCFA) general overseer Apostle Mc Hellings Kayala has said it is “unfortunate” that the country’s pastors are “defiling” the name of God by “stealing” from people in his name.

Kayala said most of them were becoming sheer “daylight robbers” stealing from innocent people.

He said in reaction to  Nyasa Times  story about a Mzuzu-based Pastor Zebron whose church reportedly sold sick Mathias Songolo “anointing” water and oil at K27 000 with claims that they had healing powers.

But Songolo had told Nyasa Times in an interview that it was a total “lie.” He had said that he had only gotten “worse” after taking the water and oil.

Kayala, whose ministry converges at Nyachenda Motel in Mzuzu City, called on pastors working in the “Lord’s vineyard” to desist from “selling” anointed water and water to people.

He said anointing is not just “water and oil.”

Said Kayala: “In the Old Testament Moses used a stick and Elisha used salt. So it is not just water and oil. Anointing comes from Jesus Christ so if one is selling something that is anointed is selling Jesus Christ himself. So, the question is, is Jesus Christ for sell?”

Kayala also warned Christians that the ability to prophesy “does not mean one is a true prophet.” False prophets can prophesy through lies, he said.

He wondered why men of God of today were so interested in “amassing wealth” instead of concentrating on making sure that people of the world “attain salvation.”

Kayala said people should not “suspect” men of God when they have “money or posh cars” saying they are their “blessings from God.”

He said: “Things have changed. Is using smartphones or posh cars to preach the word of God bad?”

Apparently, he was referring to controversial Malawian preacher Pastor Hastings Salanje who has recently been awash in the media posing by his expensive cars and mansions.

“It is because of the globalization and sophistication of the world we live in today that men of God cannot run away from technology,” said Kayala.

Ayi Man of God sikuti Posh Cars ndiye zofunika pa utumiki ayi. Where does these cars fit in in the extension of God’s Kingdom? Salvation is paramount not the things of this world.

It does not mean that God’s servant should live in poverty no! no!. But what matters most here is (1) the cheating of the so called men of God (2) the boastfulness of wealth by the so called men of God. Otherwise, men of God are supposed to be fed by the followers in everything. But as Apostle Paul said, they themselves are not to seat idle, kuopa kulemetsa anthu. But they should also be actively working – I suppose at the Pator’s house there should be plenty (a home of mwana alilenji) to meet every person’s need. Prayers, counselling… Read more »

Going by the headline, the pastor is right you can’t run away from posh cars and if you have put in the sweat and tears like the good shepard has we shouldnt begrudge him or any one else like him his success. I am aware there are others who say it goes against everything Jesus taught, and there is merit in that argument as well. What is detestable though is the showing off, flaunt it attitude, it is unnecessary; this bit has nothing to do with being pastor. The view it is unnecessary would apply to any person who behaves… Read more »
