Christian rape epidemic – A sermon http://nehandaradio.com/2018/01/21/christian-rape-epidemic-sermon/ http://nehandaradio.com/2018/01/21/christian-rape-epidemic-sermon/#comments Sun, 21 Jan 2018 20:54:10 +0000 http://nehandaradio.com/?p=164853 Tendai Tagarira

Tendai Tagarira - Almost daily we read that some pastor raped someone, even young children have been raped by so called pastors and men of God! Is that true and proper worship? When the congregation is dressed in revealing clothing, exposing their bosoms and legs, is that true and proper worship? When they are dancing immoral dances in church is that true and proper worship? They are busy getting each other pregnant right in Church! They are busy having affairs right in church! Is this true and proper worship?

Shame Mugova - Zimbabwe had a change of government in November 2017 which brought optimism that the economy might be guided on a recovery path following depression for several years since the turn of the millennium. Operation restore economy has not been launched and some people have already started to lose faith in the current administration’s ability to turn around the economy whilst some still believe the economy will be revived and grow again.

Lot Chitakasha - The name Timothy Dzingira now known as Chirozvani might not be a household name in the Zimbabwe football fraternity. Ask any ordinary fan to mention the top footballers of the1990’s and early 2000 and Chirozvani will be lucky to get a mention. It is like that, there are players who make a contribution but slip through the radar without so much attention being given to them.
