An Anglican Church Bishop has discouraged the Christians from involving themselves in acts of tribalism but rather advocate for togetherness for the development of the church and gospel of Christ.
Bishop Nason Baluku, the Bishop of South Rwenzori Diocese sounded the remarks yesterday while addressing the congregation at St. Peter’s Kabatunda Anglican Church of Uganda Parish in Kabatunda Archdeaconry shortly after confirming 64 Christians into the Anglican faith.
According to the Bishop, tribalism might lead to underdevelopment, adding that it should not be an issue for people consider while looking forward to achieving development. The prelate subsequently encouraged every Christian and the general public to desist from acts related to discrimination for a positive and developmental change.
Earlier in his preaching, Bishop Baluku had asked the believers not to stick on one thing but instead choose what is right alongside being flexible so as to realize success.
Quoting the Biblical Book of Luke 4:18-19, the Prelate encouraged the believers to struggle towards achieving Heaven in this New Year, 2022 by shying away from sin.
The Bishop used the same platform to call upon the elected leaders to enforce the by-laws in their respective areas as a measure to control drug addiction among the youths. He also encouraged the religious leaders to always visit the Christians and provide guidance and counseling sessions to the community members to ensure spiritual redemption of souls.
