DESTINY for Afrika Network founder, Reverend Obadiah Musindo, has called church leaders not to fight each other.
This follows criticism of Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa by other church leaders over a seeding call he made on New Year.
Musindo said there are learned people who are part of the United Family International Church (UFIC) and Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa is looking after poor people.
“It is not everything that we are doing in our various churches or denominations that has a biblical reference or example,” said Rev Musindo.
“UFIC affairs are internal and have nothing to do with outsiders.
“You now want to take an imperialistic attitude as is shunned by the President of this country. Avoid interference on other people’s internal affairs.
“Respect other people and their churches. Concentrate on feeding your families. Are your children happy? Prophet Makandiwa has the grace and anointing of God for miracles and finances.
“I have seen pastors promoting and supporting demonstrations against the government. Some of these pastors are running businesses that are against biblical principles.
“They are totally violating the gospel they preach in their personal lives, churches and business.
And who appointed you to be judges of other men and women of God?
“I sense petty jealous by people pastoring 200-300 congregants speaking against somebody pastoring thousands of people.
“Those thousands you see are following the power of God and the true church of God is supposed to be prophetic.
“Some of you have no legitimacy to complain about Prophet Makandiwa.
“You are overstepping your mandate as church leaders.
You are not to attack other churches as if you are leading perfect churches yourselves.
“Reverend Madawo I think you have more unbiblical things happening in your church AFM where you are the secretary general which you need to attend to so I think it would be nice for you to leave Prophet Makandiwa alone.
“There are serious problems happening in AFM that we are reading about in newspapers involving fights and legal actions against one another.
“Some pastors have been around long before Prophet Makandiwa started his ministry but you have experienced no growth in your churches!
“Instead of criticising him, seek his advice, tap into the anointing of Prophet Makandiwa and be blessed. Instead if you think he has a demon go and help deliver him.
“Let not people insult members of UFIC. There are doctors, lawyers etc in that church so to try and speak on their behalf is actually an insult to their intelligence.
“And for someone to say ‘we can’t see poor people being exploited’ which poor people are they referring to? In fact, if these poor people are giving it is so that they break out of their poverty. We all know that when you give you will be blessed.
“In our church we practice a lot. I see bishops and leaders wearing collars. Where is this found in the bible? What about titles such as Dr Shingi Munyeza? Where is the title ‘Dr’ muzvinhu zvaMwari? That is theological not scriptural.
“Kana maakuda kuita judge each other then let us look at your churches one by one tichiona malpractices enyu.
“My personal investigation and personal knowledge about Prophet Makandiwa is so mind blowing. He is a successful entrepreneur in his own right,” said Rev Musindo.
