President Edgar Lungu has called on leaders across sectors to embrace the word of God as they lead people.

President Lungu said the word of God is an anchor in decision-making and many other undertakings.

He said it is incumbent upon all leaders to support the fundamental responsibility of the churches and other Institutions such as the Bible Society of Zambia to propagate the biblical teachings and values to the children of God.

President Lungu was speaking at State House today, during the launch of the 2019 Membership Renewal of the Bible Society of Zambia.

President Lungu, who is a patron of the Bible Society of Zambia has noted that the Society had made significant strides in its Evangelism and distribution of audio bibles translated into Seven local languages.

He has pledged his continued support to the work of the Society and that State House will consider assisting in restoring the Bible Society House.

President Lungu described the work of the Bible Society as crucial in the country’s desire towards actualisation of the Declaration of Zambia as a Christian Nation.

And Bible Society Board President, Edwin Zulu said the vision of the Society is to see the country transformed through the bible.

Professor Zulu explained that the Society has translated the bible in close to twenty languages and will strive to translate it into all languages.

    • God and Politics dont mix.

      You choose one path and stick to it. All you do is acknowledge the other.

      I have a PhD



    • Mr. President, we should not be using the Word of God for politicking. For example, the Word should stop you from allowing ZAF buy that private jet or BOZ spend K 370,000 on a tree whilst babies die from diarrhea. And then GRZ claims that they did not spend the money but the particular entities did.

    • “These people honour me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me ” – Isaiah 29:13

      “You are them that justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly regarded among men is detestable in the eyes of God” – Luke 16:15

      “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked, whatever a man does, that will he reap” – Galatians 6:7.

      Need I quote more passages?
      I know, now it seems that you can misuse and abuse God’s name for your own ends, and it seems like God is idle and powerless to do anything. What you don’t realise is that he is patient with you, giving you opportunity to repent. But because of your stubborn hearts, you are storing up wrath for the day of wrath, when God’s wrath will be poured out on the wicked. Beware sir.
      You may receive men for…

    • Lazy bum illiterate Tribal TONGA hooligan bully son of a tribal polygamous father who never taught him toilet training pooping in his diapers in public HAGAIN needing HAKAINDE and MUTITNTA HICHILEMA to clean him up and change him HAGAIN. The good news? IT IS UNELECTABLE and CHILDISH!

  1. ECL preaches peace by day and cohort with drug dealers, sleaze characters and corruption aficionados by night. Corruption deals are planned at State House. Hypocrite personified!

    • Prof. HANSONI must write that down on his UNIVERSITY letterhead. It will be more effective that way. Send one to the Common Health and one to WHO in Geneva. CHILDISH.

  2. Karl Marx : “Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people”.

    I wonder what was going on in Karl Marx’s head foe him to say this in direct reference to all religions of the world.

  3. Do not judge, so that you won’t be judged. Mk 4:24-25; Lk 6:37-42 2For with the judgment you use, Lit you judge you will be judged, and with the measure you use, Lit you measure it will be measured to you. Mk 4:24; Lk 6:38; Rm 2:1; 14:10; Jms 2:13 3Why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye but don’t notice the log in your own eye? Lk 6:41; Jn 8:7-9 4Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ and look, there’s a log in your eye? 5Hypocrite! First take the log out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye. 6Don’t give what is holy to dogs or toss your pearls before pigs, Pr 9:7-8; 23:9; Mt 15:26 or they will trample them with their feet, turn, and tear you to pieces.

  4. Dr. Abraham Chikasa. Great Man of God. I remember him Very well from my days at Boys Brigade. A Very humble Man indeed dedicated to the Calling.

    • My personal opinion is that Dr. Chikasa could fit in somewhere within the Ministry of Religion. He has been dedicated ever since I knew him in the 80’s. Coming from a Christian Family.

  5. the ” moral majority ” let’s give them religion and make
    them docile while we rip them off blind.. what a farce to
    feed people the “word” while doing business hand and foot
    with Satan himself.. not all men preaching the “good word”
    mean you good!!

  6. Why not advise your Master XI to stop persecuting tens of thousands Christians?
    Or even better, invite PR China Ambassador for Sunday prayer?
