Mr Mnangagwa: God has no voice

By Tafi Mhaka

As I followed the sad and disturbing news reports on how Ezekiel Guti Jnr died after he was involved in a freak swimming pool accident in Johannesburg, South Africa, I once again quietly questioned whether God exists and confronted the authenticity of claims that Archbishop Ezekiel Guti, founder of the Zimbabwe Assemblies of God Africa (ZAOGA) church, has special healing powers.

How could Guti Jnr spend his lifetime unable to walk while his father supposedly performed medical miracles for everyone else? Perhaps this explains why Guti Jnr vented his frustrations in an interview with the media.

He said: “I used to pray to God that even if I cannot walk, at least I should be able to talk. I have seen my parents praying for people who could not talk and they began to talk.”

But Guti Jnr never did walk. So I can appreciate how fake prophets, fake evangelists and fake healing sessions con faithfully desperate souls.

And I understand why religion is losing credibility and popularity to fresh discoveries in the field of medical science: God is always missing when a physiologically tangible miracle is keenly required. 

God is always AWOL when sacrilegious relationships between men of the cloth and politicians promote deception and profit. 

God is so silent when self-serving civil leaders make a beeline to church and such publicity stunts become front page news.

So I understand why there is an embarrassing proliferation of false prophets and capitalist churches: God has no voice and no real say in biological ills, corruption, the high cost of living, low foreign exchange reserves and increasing impoverishment.

God cannot eliminate electoral fraud and stop the government from trampling on the rights of protesters in Bulawayo, Masvingo and Mutare.

So while the cultivated picture of the First Family singing in a Sunday Mass at the Methodist Church in Mabelreign might inspire words of  praise from gullible followers, it also shines the spotlight on the role of religion in civil affairs. 

But it is not just President Emmerson Mnangagwa and First Lady Auxilia Mnangagwa who have cashed in on this righteous Christian spirit and endeared themselves with the Lord and millions of his followers in Zimbabwe, Vice-President Constantine Chiwenga on December 24 made an appearance at the Noah Taguta shrine in Marange Communal lands in Manicaland.

And before Mnangagwa received the rich blessings of the Lord and made it to the State House through a de facto coup, Grace Mugabe held a massive church rally at Rufaro Stadium on November 5, 2017, that allegedly confirmed that she was the chosen one.

Dressed in angelic white and surrounded by thousands of faithful followers, ‘Gucci Grace’ exposed how organised religion has become a nefarious conduit for cultivating a clean and God-fearing professional look while simultaneously amassing questionable power and wealth. 

Worryingly, all the main actors in this seemingly ungodly order of things, the former First Lady, Mnangagwa, Vice-President Kembo Mohadi and Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, seem to have more money and social scandals at hand than they can conceivably handle in one million lifetimes.

But how can the Lord allow such godless enrichment and widespread lawlessness to fester and seemingly forgive these prominent figures for their public sins? I have not heard Mnangagwa say a prayer for the victims of the Gukurahundi massacres yet.

And when I think about the 1999 murder of Lutheran World Federation employee Strover Mutonhori, I am moved to question everything about God that I have ever believed in. Mutonhori died after an alleged affair with Mrs Tambudzai Mohadi came to light.

Unsurprisingly, the Mutonhori family have seen little joy in their efforts to have the police investigate the chief suspect: Vice-President Mohadi.

Where is the Lord when Mutonhori dies a cruel and unsolved death and Mr Mohadi becomes a Vice-President 19 years later?

And is there a chance that Vice-President Mohadi, who has been photographed in church occasionally, ever prays for the wife and family of the late church worker?

Is God watching over this distressed family and helping the mother with money for food, school fees, medicine and transportation?

I also wonder if Prophet Bushiri of the Enlightened Christian Gathering Church (ECG ministries), the man who supposedly predicted how Mr Mohadi would ascend to the second highest office in the land, lends the needy all the help he can, especially after churchgoers paid R25 000 to sit next to Prophet Bushiri at a dinner function held at the Pretoria Showgrounds on December 23, 2017.

If that ridiculous cost hardly astounds you, the R1.6 million Maserati Levante that the Malawi-born prophet bought his 4-year-old daughter as a birthday present last year should.

However, it is the economic and political hypocrisy that formal religion pushes that has wounded the soul of modern society.

If Christianity had somehow evolved with no financial and humanitarian terms and conditions attached, all would probably be well. But the price of religion is controlled economic chaos, social inaction and suppressed political disapproval.

People expect miracles to happen but ignore how science can help achieve physical goals. Greater practicality and less reliance on prayer could help people enjoy richer and healthier lives and live longer. 

And although people can seek forgiveness from God and traditional gods for a range of social, economic and political transgressions, bygones cannot be bygones in all fairness: the spirit of the law must always prevail where innocent lives have been lost at the hands of government forces and public funds have been abused or stolen. 

Because nobody deserves to die or suffer ceaseless emotional and physical anguish for the selfish inclinations of mortal men and the electoral goals of unprincipled organisations.

So until God acts on the economic and social tribulations people face on a daily basis and takes a strong and vocal stand on important political matters, scientific and technological realities and not endless and exorbitant faith in religion, should guide us in life.

  • Even APOSTLE PAUL could heal many but he couldn’t heal himself, why? God does not work with emotions, He is no respecter of Persons. He does things according to His will not mere mortals’ will but we should all understand His will is to prosper us not to fail us. Archbishop Guti may have failed to heal his son despite the unction of the Grace of healing upon him because only God heals. Everything happens for His glory to be seen.
    Please read 2 Corinthians 12:8-10

    • Uhhh.this author has no human heart.It seems he is sponsored from somewhere “ari pa ticket” he has an agenda….Imagine that the deceased son of baba Guti has not been burried yet……would this author write like this if it were his son.Imi wee….This author needs serious help in matters of the Kingdom of God.My message to him is Someone might be poor,sick,down trodden etc but still be a candidate of heaven……The spirit in this author is the same spirit that was in the thief who was crucified together with Jesus..who said to Jesus..uf you are the son of man ….remove yourself from this cross.HAMA PACHIVANHU CHEDU…AFIRWA HAATARISWE KUMESO….IPAI NGUVA BABA NA MAI GUTI VAMBO CHEME MWANA WAVO.

    • Apa akanganisa uyu Tafi Mhaka

  • God has a voice. Not that voice you expect and not saying the words you expect again.

    • Thank you bro! Tafi Mhaka may have lost it in this article. Sometimes we really need to becareful what we say about God. God has a Voice and only the humble who seek Him diligently hear him.

  • When we come to God its not about the physical body but its more of the spirit man. A human being is made of the flesh, soul and the spirit. Whenever the gospel is being preached its to do more with the Soul than the flesh
    If a person is in Christ to live is Christ and to die is gain. What is important is to be in Christ wheather we live or we die

    • Amen,a human being is in three categories as you illustrated above so the dismissal of flesh has nothing to do with God’s negativity but is with HIS presence because flesh is just a soul and spirit container which when empty is thrown away because of it’s uselessnes so can you ask God to maintain an empty container yet He withdrew the the useful CONTENT? Prayer for eternal life is our only option to everlasting life that our Lord promised us to enjoy if we sacrifice our lives to Him.

  • No one has seen God. He is a God of mysteries. When you complete you mandate He takes you

  • God is God of wisdom that he gives you exactly the opposite to the cunning heart and coŕrect testmony to the just. God love a truthfull man who seek him justly at all times. Remember 9 prophets against one who spoke the truth.

  • Tafi Mhaka you should be bored look for something valuable to kill ur time with 😏😏😏🤔🤔

  • you should have also thought that with God, death is not the same as we see it. we are like a garden of flowers, God cuts the Rose he thinks is ripe enough to decorated his table. when we mourned Guti’ departure God and Angels were celebrating.

  • paranoid

    A fool said in his heart there is no God

    • Nabu

      Well of course the Bible is going to say a fool says there is no god. But the truth is, some of the most brilliant minds in history said JUST THAT!

      Sure…we here in Zim know better than Einstein🤪😜😝

      “The word god is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honourable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish.“ Albert Einstein

  • INGA WANI NG”ANga haizvirapiwo wani

  • UMnangagwa 😳😳

  • Saka just because he is a prophet haachafirwa here??????? Saka kana aine ma healing powers anofanirwa kuramba achingo healer vekwake kuti vasafe here????
    U have demonstrated shallow thinking in this regard . God reserves the right over our lives . Life belongs to him and Apostle Ezekiel being a prophet does not mean he is above God. The Bible says even Jesus’ friend Lazarus died also . So should we say Jesus powers were fake. We all know that Lazarus died and Jesus raised him from Death but did he live forever after that? No. He died again . God allowed the people to crucify Jesus and does that mean by so doing he went to sleep????

  • May the boy rest in peace. Job once lost everything. At least Ezekiel still got his stuff…. bag the congregants and a therapedic king size bed nema guards for his physical body.

    Kafire kemfanha wacho mhani ndokanenyaya dzerikuvira mumoyo yavanhu…

  • to be able to get the correct answer one needs the help of the Holy Spirit, many will mock God. if we read carefully, there was a man who waited for 37 years to be healed at the river and he was when Jesus arrived. God is not like a man He has his own way of doing things. even if you work for Him praying day and night, you simply die like others. myself I don’t understand how God operate but I have a clue that everything is in His hands. science have tried by all means to explain some mystery and it worked but not surpassing the Holy Spirit, in terms of healing.

    • In effect…God is our father..even if he does not heal us…..saka baba vakasauya nechingwa…havasisiri baba here…….

  • you are a misguided soul, you dnt understand Godly things

  • This Tafi Mhaka cry reminds me of Tukus powerful song “Ndine mubvunzo” Where he decries … “ndinoda kuti Mwari undiudze kuti seiko, seiko” … from the Paivepo album. Before he starts asking serious existential questions mukororo uyu, mupei bhaibheri mukomana uyu. Hebrews 11 vs 1 says “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”. Yes the fake prophets are feasting on gullible believers but there is a lot that science cannot understand … for me that is the God factor…

    • Mhaka strikes me as a person who uses logic in his life which you clearly don’t do judging by your reference to a book that is a mistranslation of other mistranslations. Mhaka believes in the evidence, not fantastic Jewish folktales.

  • Tafi mhaka tikwanire. Even Moses a great man of God could not speak properly. He was a stammerer yet he was able to part the Red Sea. EH Guti jnr was an example set by God himself to show the world that disabilities can’t stop you from doing the work of God

    • Thankyou

    • You can say it again….in my view Ezekiel Junior who died ari evangelist was a true man of God…..my message to the blasphemous author as written in Revelations 14:13….what follows a man upon resting in the hands of the Lord are your works…mabasa ako anokutevera…kwete mawoko..muromo..makumbo…mota. ..minda kana ndege.As such Ezekiel Junior never blasphemed the Lord….like what this author has done …

    • You right Lloyd Vilengalenga ……what most people fail to understand is, God has got his own way of doing things. He probably let EH Guti a great man of God have a child with disabilities only to show that no matter how powerful you are when God says no its a no. When he says yes it’s a yes. Just look at the story of Jesus according to the book of Luke. He was born in a poor family but He did have all the power in the world to declare anything he want but still there is no record in the Bible that says his family became rich because he was a powerful man.

    • No matter how powerful you are, you have limits

    • Bt moses why healed hanti

    • Come again please at Cleopas Chingwe

  • Uchiri ne basa kunzwisisa bible i hope mfundis wako haana kuona izvi

  • kukwana chinhu chakanaka.
    saskum

  • The best you can do to yourself is to write about politics and leave the kingdom business to those who are born of the spirit.
    There is what Is called the supreme will of God…..I know its Greek to you so i wont bother explaining.
    Being a Man Of God does not exonerate one from facing life challenges because we are still on earth Tafi Mhaka……….I will leave it here for now………

    • Yes the author must move away from Kingdom Business.Saul before conversion was of this mood..until one day….I mean one day….The Lord is patient…but one day…mr author…..you will see lightining..and your readers in this blasphemous article will see you on the ground..and you will be blind….the voice without identity will ask you….why do you persecute me……

    • Not even politics asi ngano

    • This reporter must be careful about some of the articles he is writing i would want to advice him to stick to politics if he doesn’t understand how the Gospel works,or else he is gnna mess up his life have seen people talking negative or tryin to criticize the Gospel and the end result was not good,would very much advice him to think twice before publishing anything that has a negative understanding against the Kingdon bussiness i wouldn’t want to talk of Karma in this one but in real life he will leave to regret questioning about the existence of the Holy Spirit

    • True my brother we don’t really waste our ample time to discuss kingdom issues with such. We have celebrated the time had with the late Bishop Ezekiel Guti jnr. The guy doesn’t even know the history of the late Bishop Ezekiel Guti is and where God has taken him from….

    • Well said!

  • Thief on the cross

    • Kkkkkk you can say that again, busy kutora mari dzevarombo

    • Murombo wacho akabirwa muudze anovhura case kuma purisa. Kana iwewe wacho wakabirwa enda uno reporter nyaya yako kuma purisa kwete kungo hukura sembwa unondinyaudza

    • True in automotive engineering….when you see an engine mixing water and oil….its a sign of head cylinder warping….the author seem to have a problem of mixing staus of the physical and status of the spirit..he needs help this guy

    • Uuuuuu no guys vanhu vanekakufungira kuti mapowers ababa vedu vaGuti ndeekutsvaga tsvaga ndosaka vachinyora zvakadai.

  • Religion is bullshit created to cater for those who don’t understand science and can’t deal with reality.

    • You are a lost soul. Seek God’s face before it is too late

    • soo you came from science?. you crazy bro….

    • Benzi rakati mumoyo maro Mwari hakuna

    • Okay answer me this. What do you think happened to billions of your ancestors who existed here in Africa before the white man brought christianity? Did they go to heaven or hell? Considering they had their own spiritual beliefs which were considered dumb and evil and eventually replaced with Christianity by the white man.

    • That is for God to judge not us .

    • Reaben.. what also happened to billions of people who died before science was ever there.where did science come ?didnt the white man brought science.before science and what you call christianity was God was.your ancestors were doomed because they all came from babel and worshipped spirits.midzimu nemhondoro nemashave ekuba nehuroyi..the truth is they were doomed.the white man brought the bible and some believed what was in the bible and seeked God and found him.

    • Betsania Kandhlera Do you even believe the drivel that just came out of your mouth sponsored by your brainwashed mind? You are an embarrassment to all black people with your self-hate and cooning ways.

  • who is. guti on the face of. god

  • Such kind of journalism
    …shame on you, you still have a lot to learn.

  • The fact that you say “God” means that He exists
    Tell me one thing that has a name and does not exist

  • Tafi Mhaka why are u hearttless? Afirwa haatariswe kumeso. Death is Gods law. Being born dead and live again. Is that not a miracle on its own?

  • Let me leave these 2 verses here for our very ‘intelligent and wise’ brother Tafi Mhaka : –

    i ) “Do not give dogs what is holy, and do not throw your pearls before pigs, lest they trample them underfoot and turn to attack you.

    – Matthew 7:6 ESV –

    ii.) For the director of music. Of David. The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.

    – Psalm 14 : 1 –

    • Watomupedzera iwe. Kunyanya yepazasi

    • wasu

      you are funny, if God will do what he wants regardless of what one believes in, then there is no point worshiping him and praying to him. Hypocrites!!!!!!

  • Tafi Mhaka …be a writer of any other things n news but stop misleading pple …u will be punished by God.

    • Your god is a dictator if he punishes those who don’t follow him.

  • You are a workshop of stan and your utterances of this nature comes from a zombie with high level of drunkness.

  • Waktambira kunonyudza penga wega iwe

  • Tafi Mhaka needs to replace the k on his surname and put a t.That will best describe the components in his head and chest that replaced the brains.Zimbabweans are people of a good moral.How do you dare poke the bereaved in such a way.Its uncalled for.

    • Ibharanzi he wants popularity ne wrong topic vana va Dr chaiwo ane surgery hava rware because baba ndi Dr ???

    • When people start insulting others vapererwa. A medical doctor of any specialty can use their skills to help their children which Guti couldn’t do. Its ok to be delusional but don’t expect everyone else to be as gullible as you are.

    • Imbwa urikuitawo semunhu that’s why he has no feelings for other pple

  • It shows kuti God exists and at any moment unogona kungobaya

  • This author obviously has not read the Bible or understood how God functions. God does not do the will of man but man is expected to strive for the will of God. The author thinks of a god that can be contained, a god that can be steered like a vehicle. No sir..you are totally lost. Your understanding of matters of the Kingdom is utterly flawed. Stop writing on issues your are not properly versed on.
    On another issue, don’t you grieve with the Guti family? Are you African? Where are your manners and ubuntu/hunhu?

    • You actually read the Bible? Did you miss the part where where slavery is sanctioned? Or when Lot gets it on with his daughters?Or when Amnon rapes his sister Tamar? The Bible is more graphic than Game of Thrones. What African values do you get in there? That the Hebrew people are exceptional? It’s only fair to ask these charlatans to heal their own just as they claim to heal others.

    • Agree with you Colleen, so many people hiding behind the Bible, doing their own will but pretending to be doing HIS will. These God-users are irrelevant in the kingdom of heaven and it’s unfortunate they take unsuspecting people with them. The Bible is to be read in it’s entirety, reverently to be fully understood and revealed to God’s people. Cherry-picking verses here and there to justify whatever cause doesn’t invalidate the message of God through his holy word. People need to read their own bibles and hear directly from God rather than idol-worship so called celebrity pastors. That is the main problem, God is no respecter of man.

  • God does exist. Remember the story of John the Baptist. How did he die? Was God not aware?

  • Ma Admin edu aya. Ndaifunga kuti zvinhu kwazvo. Madhaka chaiwo. I again unliked iHarare ndaona mumwe anoti Zuva Habane. Now i know there is nothing special about Nehandaradio, iHarare e.t.c. These are just demons moving around our teritories

  • Kkkkkk paita vana vaGuti pano

    • Tiri vana va Mwari. Tinodzora nekutsiura hubenzi. Am not even a ZAOGA member, am Methodist

  • Questioning the existence of God is naked madness..

  • Fogmaster

    We could argue the same way with your belief in Science. How many people are dying in hospitals where science is supremely evident? I read about how they switched off Bobby Brown ‘s scientific machines to let her die. Does that mean science is fake?
    I sincerely believe Mr Mhaka you are measuring water in Km/h and you are getting disappointed. Measure God the right way: spiritually. His ways are not our ways and his thoughts are not our thoughts. He ways are higher. Ezekiel Guti Jr is asleep as far as God is concerned, he will live again.

  • umm asazi

  • Guti is a mere man like everyone who is he to be spared from God’s axe. God has a voice & everyone has a Dday in life u wont cross that line, wat only differs is time, place & hw u are to die but u’ll surely DIE. Mind yo thinkings

  • Jesus anga ari Mwari bt he suffered kusvika pakuti baba kana zvichibvira mukombe uyu ngaupfuure wozotaura zvemabishop iwe sha kwana
    Benzi rakati mumoyo maro Mwari hakuna

  • Tafi Mhaka if you measure water in Km/h you will be extremely disappointed. If you measure God in scientific terms you will equally be disappointed.
    God’s ways are not our ways, his thoughts are ways are higher. The foolishness of God is wiser than the wisdom of this world. Umwe neumwe achawana mubayiro wake pamberi pamwari especially those politicians who do not repent. For the record David was a politician whose hands dripped with BLOOD, but he repented to become a man after God’s heart.
    When Mnangagwa said the voice of the people is God’s voice he was acknowledging that God can use anybody in this country. Not one individual or family dynasty is more equal than others. Guti’s family is no better than yours Mr Mhaka. Inga wani mota yamakanika inongofawo sedzimwe mota dzose zvipanera zvizere? Reconfigure your spiritual eyesight and you will perceive things differently apa waita reasoning yekamwana Tafi. Your parents and your teachers and lecturers are extremely disappointed I bet you!

  • My dumb friend, even Christ Jesus never wanted to die but he had to die. The power and work of God is unquestionable. He who is in heaven knows our what we want. If you judge a person by the fact that he once sinned, what if he repented and follow the will of God. God will never keep hatred towards a human being he created, he is the one who gives life and does take at will. We’re only his creatures

  • It has really shown itself that in your confusion to expound God, you have shown your shallowness in Deity issues. Your venture into your biased political thesisis and theological summary have exposed that learnedness does not delete congenital goonery. The direct of the report has no repose and allude to your gross dislike of Zimbabwe President, thereby reducing it not to a theological teaching but a mere atheistical comprehension. You try to suppress your height default, senile sexuality and political indecision and your minute cognitive resonance by trying to make a big name for yourself by verbally attacking Kings to your own Godly allowed early eulogy.

    • You sound like you just got onto a keyboard and typed any English words you have a ever encountered. You’re only proving Mhaka’s assertion about the gullibility of Christian folk in Zimbabwe.

  • GZD

    Those are all man made problems we create and now you want God to intervene! God did His job & we await His salvation. This world is so full of sin & perversion. Those who believe and remain faithful shall be saved and mount upon wings like eagles. Read your Bible which does explain what’s happening. The gospels of Jesus and the book of revelation.

  • Clondic Mvura ndionerewo zviripano!!!

  • When a heathen picks a pen to write a commentary of God, you definitely end up with a well grammarised meaningless document as above. It reminds me of those demon possessed people who stood at Jesus cross and said come down if you have special healing powers. Those devils did not die, they are in this writer today.

    By the way I m not a member of ZAOGA.

      He needs catch up lessons ku Sunday School first

  • God’s ways are HIS ways. No man or woman is to criticize HIS ways let alone understand them. And God has no respect for man and woman coz HE IS GOD.

    It’s a figment of your imagination that Guti it whoever aspires to do HIS WILL , aspires to be righteous (note I say aspires coz hakuna Mutsvene pasi rino except God) will have a crown at the end. Remember, we ALL fall short of the Kingdom of God

Apostle Paul who wrote half of the new testament had a thorn in his flesh and prayed to God for healing but God said his grace was sufficient in that situation. saka hameno kuti uri kungo ukura uchiukura papi pacho

  • I support Tafi, if people can not heal why then do they write posters inviting the sick for healing. The clergy must not be seen dining with politicians especially those that increase the suffering of God’s people. Most of these modern day prophets are man pleasers who are busy positioning themselves for economical reasons rather than spiritual matters. They lift up their names rather than Jesus’s name.

  • It’s long msg but just try to read once

    BERNARD SHAW while smoking his cigarette, he puffed out some smoke into the air and said:’God, that’s for you.’

    He died at the age of 32 of LUNG CANCER in a horrible manner.

    The man who built the Titanic

    After the construction of Titanic, a reporter asked him how safe the Titanic would be.

    With an ironic tone he said:

    ‘Not even God can sink it’

    The result: I think you all know what happened to the Titanic

    Marilyn Monroe (Actress)

    She was visited by Billy Graham during a presentation of a show.

    He said the Spirit of God had sent him to preach to her.

    After hearing what the Preacher had to say, she said:

    ‘I don’t need your God’.

    A week later, she was found dead in her apartment

    Bon Scott (Singer)

    The ex-vocalist of the AC/DC. On one of his 1979 songs he sang:

    ‘Don’t stop me; I’m going down all the way, down the highway to hell’.

    On the 19th of February 1980, Bon Scott was found dead, he had been choked by his own vomit.

    Campinas (IN 2005)

    In Campinas , Brazil a group of friends, drunk, went to pick up a friend…..

    The mother accompanied her to the car and was so worried about the drunkenness of her friends and she said to the daughter holding her hand, who was already seated in the car:

    ‘My Daughter, Go With God And May He Protect You.’

    She responded: ‘Only If He (God) Travels In The Trunk, Cause Inside Here…..It’s Already Full ‘

    Hours later, news came by that they had been involved in a fatal accident, everyone had died,

    the car could not be recognized what type of car it had been, but surprisingly, the trunk was intact.

    The police said there was no way the trunk could have remained intact. To their surprise, inside the trunk was a crate of eggs, none was broken.

    • People of all ages especially chain smokers die of cancer, Marylin Monroe was depressed and may have committed suicide. Mental illness is quite common in America. The Titanic like any man made vessel sunk because of a number of factors. Your last story is bull crap.

  • So this guy means to say children of Man of God must live forever and ever ,practically they must be immune to death ,then thats his barometre of measuring the authenticity of God in Man of God…How foolish..

  • Kana ukanamata ukaziva chitrndero uchanyara nezvawanyora

  • mr mhaka, I think it was God’s plan to make Ezekiel jnr what he was bz he was just great as an evangelist.he saved many souls.physically challenged yes but spiritually stronger than the likes of you mhaka.

  • You worried about Jnr who was promoted to glory his journey on earth he has run kwasara iwe who think you are immortal in your head and little office trying to think and measure God with your carnal mind.
    You can try to detail events leading to his death and judge his father you missing one simple point yekuti God said “you shall die” that’s me and you we shall fulfil HIS word by dying either young old rich poor lonely or sorrounded by loved ones.
    Repeat and retract your careless statement and save your soul from blasphemy against God’s word of man shall die cause you denying kuti everyone die including Archbishop’s dear son.

  • Job a righteous man before God. How his sons and daughters died can explain much clearer. Being a man of God or a his child does not mean you are immortal or you must face a certain way of dying

  • ever met a verse which says vakaropafadzwa vanofira munashe? Pano patiri hapasi pamusha,so EG junior akabata basa rake and God called him kumusha.The best u can do Mr Writer is to prepare for your spirit.God’s thoughts are higher than our thoughts,so dont meddle into things yu have little understanding on,rather prepare for ur tmrw .

  • Kukwana hauna kana shame,inga Zvinonzi nyoka huru haizvirumi.

  • GOD is DIVINE He does not need to prove himself to anyone. He did a spectacular display of His Divinity through His son Jesus Christ.

  • If you can’t hear the voice of God that does not mean that God has no voice!! Those who walk with God know that Hod has Voice!! It only depend on the Intimacy with Him! The Sheppard knows his Sheep and he hearken to their voices!!

  • The writer is scared of death and assumes that God is scared of it as well or that He dies also. God is all-knowing and knows what happens fully when one dies and has power over it.He is not limited by space, time and matter as you suppose. God is sovereign and allows events to happen and will definitely judge ALL in the due season.

  • Following…….

  • Your stupidity has reached another level. You are such a disgusting person alive. You are a sickening pathetic person

  • we can learn a lesson from jnr Guti zvingava zvoupenyu his disability never stopped him to achieve his goal . God has His ways of doing things you cnt say no when He says yes

  • No man is immortal in this world. We are all born from a woman, our days are numbered. One day, we are going to leave this world one way or the other. God chose this way for him. You do not choose your ways. So for a person to use his journalism to write anti-social messages which are misleading and unhelpful this is a matter of poor judgement. Even a consultant of high calibre, Evangelists, Presidents & you name, one day is the day they will also face their own demise. May his soul rest in peace Mr Guti (Junior).

  • Rufu mutemo waMwari guys. Whether u are a prophet, a man of God or a heathen we shall all die. Hazvinei nekuti wakaporesa vanhu rufu runongokusvikira chete. If Jesus himself died, who are we to resist death? As Jesus rose from the dead, those who believe shall also rise from the dead. By the way who are we to judge?? Kufirwa kana kufa doesn’t mean kuto Mwari vatifuratira. Vakaropafadzwa vanofa, asi vachifira muna Kristu. Chaunofanira kuramba kufira munyika (kungofa njeee) coz unozosongana neGehena kumberi uko.

  • Using the same logic

    ___ Jesus being the son of God and being God himself, was crucified and died on the cross.At one point, He had to run away after a mob wanted to stone him____

  • Are there claims that he has healing powers, l disagree but what l know is that God mighlty uses Ezekiel Guti, God works miracles through his servant.Death was created by God, even Moses died, Abraham died, so the death of Ezekiel Jr doesn’t in any sense mean that God doesn’t exist. Repent!!!!!!

  • God wants to show us that He is God. He allowed our brother Stephen to be stoned but let Peter free ( in those heavily guarded prisons ) He allowed John the Baptist to be beheaded while Jesus was still around

  • After reading comments with the most likes, I won’t bother to go through your article. All I can say is, musataure kwamusingaswere!

    You need help… stop blasphemy, and pray to be delivered from that demon. Ezekiel is not God but God uses him. He is just a vessel.

  • Tafi Mhaka what you should know is that we live on this earth where we are governed by time. Anything that lives in time is not eternal. The manner in which one goes is entirely the sovereignity of God . He does what he wants.

  • ◄ Psalm 73 ►
    New International Version
    BOOK III

    Psalms 73–89

    Psalm 73

    A psalm of Asaph.

    1Surely God is good to Israel,

    to those who are pure in heart.

    2But as for me, my feet had almost slipped;

    I had nearly lost my foothold.

    3For I envied the arrogant

    when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

    4They have no struggles;

    their bodies are healthy and strong.a

    5They are free from common human burdens;

    they are not plagued by human ills.

    6Therefore pride is their necklace;

    they clothe themselves with violence.

    7From their callous hearts comes iniquityb ;

    their evil imaginations have no limits.

    8They scoff, and speak with malice;

    with arrogance they threaten oppression.

    9Their mouths lay claim to heaven,

    and their tongues take possession of the earth.

    10Therefore their people turn to them

    and drink up waters in abundance.c

    11They say, “How would God know?

    Does the Most High know anything?”

    12This is what the wicked are like—

    always free of care, they go on amassing wealth.

    13Surely in vain I have kept my heart pure

    and have washed my hands in innocence.

    14All day long I have been afflicted,

    and every morning brings new punishments.

    15If I had spoken out like that,

    I would have betrayed your children.

    16When I tried to understand all this,

    it troubled me deeply

    17till I entered the sanctuary of God;

    then I understood their final destiny.

    18Surely you place them on slippery ground;

    you cast them down to ruin.

    19How suddenly are they destroyed,

    completely swept away by terrors!

    20They are like a dream when one awakes;

    when you arise, Lord,

    you will despise them as fantasies.

    21When my heart was grieved

    and my spirit embittered,

    22I was senseless and ignorant;

    I was a brute beast before you.

    23Yet I am always with you;

    you hold me by my right hand.

    24You guide me with your counsel,

    and afterward you will take me into glory.

    25Whom have I in heaven but you?

    And earth has nothing I desire besides you.

    26My flesh and my heart may fail,

    but God is the strength of my heart

    and my portion forever.

    27Those who are far from you will perish;

    you destroy all who are unfaithful to you.

    28But as for me, it is good to be near God.

    I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge;

    I will tell of all your deeds.

  • Trusst Hwiridzo

    God was not ashamed of Ezekiel Jnr. That is why he was followed by many miraculous signs and wonders. If you follow his life from birth you will know that indeed God took the weak things of this world to confound the wise. It does not matter how we at times wonder why certain situations God intervenes and others he doesnt. That cannot demote him to the small mindedness you want us to all allude to.

    • Muchati Bhuu

  • God can not exist its like -2 and +2 they can exist without each other but if you bring them together they don’t exist. That same applies to the god of the bible if you bring the whole chunk he disappears.

  • This Tafi guy is in same class nana Kudzai Chipanga vayi enzanisa Krisitu Jesu naMugabe

  • God can not b questioned no profet av power to stop death.Job lost all he had in 1 day bt never doubted God even wen his wife said curse God n die he said u speak like a foolish woman shld we accept only d good from God n not d bad he had wisdom

  • Black people are so brainwashed by Christianity to an extent that they cannot think productively. That’s the reason why Prophets have flourished in Africa and became filthy rich taking advantage of gullible followers who think God will do everything for them if they surrender 10% of their income to the Prophets. Stupid idiots.

    Even the white men who discovered and introduced black people to Christianity feel sorry and embarrassed by the way black people commit themselves to God and forget to take care of themselves hoping God will perform some miracles for them. Africa is poor because of lack of productivity and forward thinking. Truth hates but remains nothing but the truth. Work hard than talking Mwari Mwari pese pese.

  • I think u ar so stupid .Joseph the father of Jesus died b4 Lazarus rose frm te dead but Jesus ddnt rise him up but he did it to lazarus cz God does things his on ways not yor way. Evn u to yor kids u cn buy expensive things ad 2 other one chip who cn blem u dnt diceive pple u blind man

    • Do you have proof that Lazarus actually existed? You’re the foolish one believing in sky fairies.

  • To my point of view Tafi Mhaka is right, his question is not judging these two theses, Why Guti’s son died and the ED, but his wonder is after he heard which means after he got the correct information on how he died then he wondered. The questions I’m sure were wasn’t there anyone at the pool. And on ED issue definitely he is right, these politician insult The supreme God in the meaning or depth of their statements. Don’t judge this man he is a heard of you in you perceptions.

  • Eve

    so are you saying that children of pastors are not supposed to die?Or bad things are not supposed to happen to pastors and their children?Being a believer only means you beieve that God exists and that Jesus Christ is his son. This doesnt ever mean you are now above the tribulations of this worls, only that you are equipped spiritually to overcome

  • Don, the insult him wat he needs is light he is in the dark. Yes they are things that happen in life that are only there to measure the depth of his love to US. The devil use such events to weaken our faith. Thus y Paul ask us the question. Wat can seperate us from the love that we find in Christ.is it Hunger. Death. Sickness and diseases .they is nothing that can separate us from the love of our redemer Jesus Christ .yes common sense isn’t common .May his soul rest in peace .and in the eyes of God all is well

  • I don’t condemn you Tafi its not your fault, you only need to read your bible and understand God. it would good to join bible church. God loves you and wants you to understand him.

  • This is very painful. How can one post such disheartening story.

  • To live is Christ and to die is gain said apostle Paul to the Philippines

    • wasu

      Taura hako Bhuuu kkkkk, I like the way that these believers think, kkkk. when you question the obvious they say you need to fear the lord and repent. hanzi iwewe just “remain faithful and you shall be saved and mount upon wings like eagles”. kkkk. religion is the oldest and most effective medium of mental bondage especially in today’s societies. Tafi rightly said it, just look at how it is being used (not abused) by a few wise to enrich themselves at the expense of their followers using the bible. Of all the stories, epic movies, folktales and fary tales I have watched and read, the bible is the best…..

  • Costa Kasinauyo

    You, Tafi Mhaka, must fear the LORD. Guti himself, the bereaved parent, did not say anything against GOD. He knows the ways of our God. If Jesus could suffer and die the way he did, being the beloved son of GOD, who are we then to challenge the LORD the way you did. Woe to you, Tafi! You are a viper!

  • wasu

    Spot on Mhaka

  • Citizen X

    Mhaka, if God exists, and if He/She created all that exists, then He/She surely does not need you, I, or anyone else to believe in Him/Her. On the other hand surely you or I need to know who we are and what ireality is? Modern physics is now telling us that matter and time are not what they appear to be. Or as another, simpler example, if you or I stand still where we are, this, as you know, is an illusion. For we are on a planet that is spinning about its axis, hurtling through space at great speed to orbit the sun. And yet all about us may appear peaceful and motionless. And we apparently standing up-right, even st the South Pole.

    So continue with your questioning… a truth cannot bevthreatened by questioning. If there is a God, He/She would be beyond knowing. It would a bit like asking a glowing light bulb to explain electricity. But ‘Who are you?’ is a fair question to ask. Who are you? See where that takes you, eventually…
