Religious leaders warned from preaching the gospel with intentions o accumulating wealth.

By Masereka Enos

Religious leaders in Kasese district have been discouraged from preaching the gospel of Christ with intentions of attaining material and economic gains.

The discouragement was sounded yesterday by the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Kasese, the Rt. Rev. Francis Acquirinus Kibira while leading a scientific mass that was held at Pope John Paul II Memorial House located outside his residence in Kasese town.

Bishop Kibira said it was unfortunate that servants of God demand for money from the people that they pray for. According to him, religious leaders need to imitate the teachings of Jesus Christ who did not ask for material gains whenever he healed the sick.

The Man of God also challenged the entire Christians not to monopolize the God given blessings saying they should instead share them with their fellows who are disadvantaged.

The prelate also observed need for women to be placed in big positions in an attempt to eradicate the ever increasing cases of corruption in the country.

According to him, women are in most cases corruption free and thus they can control and distribute resources equitably.

The Prelate made the observation today morning while officiating at thanksgiving mass of the Kasese Municipality Member of Parliament, Ferigo Kambale that was held at the Pope John Paul II Memorial House outside his residence.

Bishop Kibira also encouraged the politicians at their various levels to unite and work towards building Kasese district despite their political affiliations.
