GOD will punish us until we stop sinning, says Jack Kalala.
Commenting on religious minister Reverend Godridah Sumaili’s statement that on October 18 the country would pray for rains and good harvest, Kalala said God was interested in righteousness and justice and not prayers with sinful intentions against fellow citizens.
“We pray for reconciliation while we refuse to talk to our people in opposition & want to impose the evil Bill no.10 on the people. We also continue with stealing from the poor through corruption. Instead [of] blessings on our nation, He’ll punish us until we stop sinning. #Zambia,” he wrote in a series of tweets.
Kalala wondered what was going on in the PF administration.
“There’ll be floods in 2019/2020 rain season, warns Minister [communications minister Mutotwe Kafwaya]. One minister says there will be floods during the next rain season while the other Minister calls for prayers for rains &a bumper harvest. Which is which?” Kalala wondered. “My advice is that we should follow the prediction of the meteorological dept. & prepare according. As for the bumper harvest, Gvt [government] should distribute inputs on time &make it profitable to grow maize by giving good incentives &advise small [scale] farmers which seed to plant. We should be using God given brain to achieve the results we want.”
He said the country had been guided by the technical department as to what would happen next rain season.
“We can have a bumper harvest if we plan, prepare accordingly & work hard to achieve our goal. We shouldn’t test God,” Kalala urged. “As a Christian I believe in God and in prayer but prayer hidden motive to hoodwink people is futile and waste of time because it infuriates God more. I invite Hon. Sumaili to read Amos 5:4 -25 &Isaiah 66:1. As could be seen from the given scriptures, God is more interested in righteousness and justice. He’ll not to prayers of sinful intentions against fellow citizens in their hearts. Good looks at our hearts. He sees the plans in our hearts & what we do & say behind walls.”
