Apostle McHellings Kayala of Christian Fellowship Centre for All Nations (CFCFAN) in Mzuzu has warned Christians in the country not to be swayed with many men and women claiming to be ‘Men of God’ in Pentecostal movement saying some of them are “using Satanic” influence.
Kayala, who was Aford deputy secretary general, expressed concern that people “forget there is Satanism behind.”
He said: “Satan has descendants who’re human beings; and, if we’re to cite scripture further, Satan has paraded as the owner of wealth of the world.”
Kayala said some philosophies many of these men of God are advancing especially on matters regarding wealth are questionable.
“The devil is using such so-called men of God to destroy us. The devil cannot work without people and these are the people. He is giving money to these people to build churches. And, truly these people are going parallel to the true men of God,” explained Kayala, an entrepreneur and owner of prestigious Blessings Senior Academy in Ekwendeni.
He added: “Satan is creating copycats. Satan has churches. Satan has ‘men of God.’ Satan has followers. We must always be cautious with what kind of men of ‘God’ we deal with.”
According to Kayala, he said it was important that Christians “dwell on the word of God for illumination. The word of God will help us discern.”
He said Christians “must work hard and attain what they deserve rather than simply getting carried away by some ‘miracle money’ prophecies.”
But leaders of Living Waters Church and Calvary Family Church who spoke to Nyasa Times said while Kayala’s advise is good, pointed out that “he should come with clean hands” before condemning the faith leaders in Malawi.
They said Kayala has more skeletons in his cupboards and should not claim to stand on higher moral ground or seek cheap fame.
