Bible House on fire

A warehouse holding more than 50 thousand bibles was not affected in a fire that gutted bible society House on Wednesday. The fire which damaged most of the Bible House building and those next to it.

But Bible Societies Board Chairperson Edwin Zulu says the warehouse with more than 50 thousand bibles remained intact. He said this in Lusaka when Minister of National Guidance and Religious Affairs Godfredah Sumaili toured the gutted Bible Society house.

Reverend Sumaili said this is a miracle that no life was lost when fire gutted the Bible House in Lusaka. Mr Zulu told the Minister that the value of damage to property has not yet been quantified and that the cause of the fire has not been established.

He however explained that the building was insured.

    • Christianity – The belief that some cosmic Jewish Zombie can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him that you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking to eat from a magical tree.
      Makes perfect sense?

    • Surely how can you find one when you do not know where to look and you are a child educated ONLY in a classroom. Moreover they have 50,000 bibles in storage just to keep you down and docile…not even Ministry of Education at ECZ has such textbooks in storage.

      Wake up from your stupor and study about self!!

  5. Africans are more in the bible than other people of the world starting from Abraham who came to Egypt , Joseph married an Egyptian woman in Africa Moses married Ziporah an African. Jesus came to Africa when the king in Israel wanted his life.
    Queen of Sheba was African why do you talk about what you don’t know about , Christianity is not western but it is more African.

    • Really laughable how can you use a bible written in third person tense to back up your point? Do you want to show verses that encourage slavery, rape, look down on women?

  6. @Jay Jay, Christians and non Christians and chiefs who are the custodians of our traditions know that the Bible is a good book. Thank goodness the Bibles were saved. But our incompetent firefighters did not arrive in time. Could it have been due to traffic issues or street vendors. How I wish the fire had gutted street vendors goods

  7. Jay Jay what demon has possessed you this morning. I can real assure you have made your days shorter. You are cursed and you suffer for insulting there one who give you life everyday. Ask Stephen William Hawking what happened to him the day he insulted, denied and cursed God. Even if you dont believe one day you will believe. Shame! you have not researched and read the bible otherwise you would have know that is only book for humans (unbelievers and believers).

    • It’s all made up to pull wool over your faces.Christ himself was not a Christian. Other than symbolic cannibalism he left no written word. Anything you know about him was written for public consumption no earlier than 300 years after his supposed miserable existence.

    • Wake up from your stupor…there was no locale called Nazareth. The word derives from Egyptian word Nasir meaning “Prince who was sent” and also from Nasir means Sirus. Its Jesus of Na-sirius…all copies from Egyptian culture together with the word Amen.
      Wake up!!

  9. Jay Jay. Why do you bother about the Bible if you do not believe in it . What is that to you . You can not kick against the pricks man . You can not change what you found . The queen of England swore by the same book you are rejecting yet when you are writing I do not see you communicate in any African language

    • To wake up some people up from their docility…to make people question religion the selfsame way the question unknown food placed in front of them.
      Who is the queen of England to me? Do you know that there are English people who are anti monarchy?
      Wake up from your folly!!
