Continue your approach of not getting involved in partisan politics, Lungu tells SDA Church

Headlines Continue your approach of not getting involved in partisan politics, Lungu...

President Edgar Lungu has encouraged the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church to continue with its approach of not getting involved in partisan politics.

The Head of state said that the SDA is one of the shining examples of how the Church should conduct its affairs when it comes to uniting people across the country. President Lungu said that the Church has continued embracing people with the view of promoting unity away from active politics.

President Lungu said that the growing trend where some Churches have decided to take part in partisan politics is not good for the country and that if this trend continues it has potential to destroy the country.

President Lungu who was accompanied by cabinet Ministers and other government officials said this when he attended the SDA Northern Zambia Union Conference in Kitwe.

And SDA Northern Zambia Union Conference President Samuel Sinyangwe urged church leaders to stick to their lane. Pastor Sinyangwe said the violence that happens in society should not be blamed on politicians alone but also the Church. He said Church leaders should preach love and peace if they do not want to see violence in society.

Pastor Sinyangwe said he is proud of the youths in the SDA Church because they know their role in society. He told the President Lungu during a sermon that if he finds someone causing trouble on the street then that person is not a real Adventist.

  1. When it suits you, they should be non partisan, when it doesn’t they shouldn’t be. Kikikiki. What makes you think they were non partisan when they were already hosting you? What makes them different from your Christians for yourself? Is it not because Christians for yourself have no church on the CB why they represented them?

  2. Edgar Lungu doesn’t mean a word of wht is being reported here. He’s publicly rejected separation of church and state on many occasions.

  3. If people dont openly condemn massive glaring corruption, political intolerance, dictatorial tendency and tribal hate speech you think that’s uniting the country. The thing is that you will never like people who advocate for good governance and you take them as opposition.
    If TIZ calls for firing of a minister you say opposition is pressuring you to do. For you everything is politics. The have a good reason why they cant openly criticize your leadership. But it Is not what you are thinking.
    All you want is the people either to praise you or keep quiet. It doesn’t work that way.

  4. The shame that has fallen on America should not be any where near our country. The head of state as a torch bearer is leading the crusade of peace by encouraging the church not to be partisan. Rwanda genocide is still very fresh in our minds. This was orchestrated by some well known clergy from the Catholic Church. These leaders where summoned by the ICC. Pope Francis is on record to have asked for forgiveness on behalf of his church because they got involved in spread Ming of hatred that fuelled the genocide. Some bloggers here have no clue and are in the habit of just criticising everything that comes from the head of state.

  6. The churches are housing all sorts of people and any so called churches or church which doesn’t speak these diabolical pathetic schemes and activities happening under this kakistocracy thieving circus regime is just a flea circus church/ churches.Its not a church with a direction

  7. @ Kaizar Zulu, confirmation of your being sacked by ECL, PF has now ostracized Munir Zulu – payment of ECL K185,000 from your corruption hasn’t worked

  8. The SDA Church is one of the best religious organizations in the world you like or not. In Zambia at least they have schools, hospitals, universities and so on. They don’t climb on anti hills just to be seen that they are speaking for people. They work for people silently. Point at any school, hospital, University that the Jehovah’s witnesses have put up in this country, zero. So is their being the best?
    Making political noise in the media by some clergy does not mean that is working for people. There are a lot of people in this country who speak for people silently. They may not be in media and that is the spirit. The SDA Church leadership of approaching things is good it has no potential of fueling confusion or war as it was in Rwanda.

  9. Because someone disagrees with some government policy, does not necessarily mean that person favours an opposition party.
