CCAP quashes Evangelical Association of Malawi pastoral letter

Presbyterian church, the general assembly of the CCAP has reacted angrily to the pastoral letter issued by the Evangelical Association of Malawi (EAM),  arguing the church was not consulted.

CCAP General Assembly Reverend Collins M’bawa

The CCAP general assembly president Reverend Collins M’bawa has since asked the CCAP to stop reading the pastoral letter to the congregation.

“They did not consult us before they issued the pastoral letter, we have nothing to do with it,” said M’bawa.

The hard hitting pastoral letter , titled ‘A call for decisive, ethical and selfless leadership’, Christians are urged to pray to God to give Malawi a better future, partly through quality leadership in next year’s Tripartite Elections.

It says although Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led government has made efforts towards substantive democratic governance, it has been found wanting in the fight against corruption, the apparent suppression of electoral reforms, and the failure to deliver the development citizens deserve.

EAM general secretary Francis Mkandawire said there was no need to consult the general assembly over the pastoral letter, saying it is not a member of the association.

He said the synods of the church are members of the church, saying this is why the association deals with them directly.

EAM has 68 church denominations and 58 Christian organisations.

The EAM pastoral letter is one of several such given by various churches, which also, dwelt on many governance failures.

We know that Reverend M’bawa comes from Goliati. That is the same village as Mutharika. So what do you expect of him? Kukonda za m’dziko kuposa Mulungu. Mudzamufuna.

Lion in sheep skin. Are you Reverend or Revealed Collins M’bawa? Likewise, whom did you consult to open your mouth and counter the pastoral letter? You are a DPP sympathiser, a staunch tribesmen defender hiding behind the church. A number of pastors including those we trusted most think heaven is aligned with DPP so long it is a party of their tribesmen, region etc? Even some Pentecostal and Charismatic ministers have fallen prey into this silly business of commenting on issues that well -known to be supported. It’s 53 years after independence and pastors are still handclappers. You are running… Read more »

Rev. Francis Mkandawire is a highly respected man of God, just as is Rev M’bawa, but what M’bawa is saying is something else. May someone remind him please, of his role. Thank you!

It was the clergy that masterminded the crusfication of Jesus. We have them among us. They defend the indefensible

Who crucified Jesus Christ in the first place? Iwowo ankati Yesu waswa Chilamulo cha Mose, Yesu akuzinenera yekha kuti iyeyo ndi Mulungu, etc, etc. Yesu atati abwere lero: 1. Atsogoleri athu amipingowa adzamudziwa? 2. Nkhosa za lero zidzamulandira? 3. Kodi Yesu ankakhala panthi ndi andale? (Ufumu wanga suli wadziko lapansi, Simoni bwenza lupanga lako m’chimake) 4. Adzapaedza mipingo yamgwirizano 5.
