To whom will God turn to when his assistants on earth are all neck-deep in deception and self-denial? Crisis galore has visited the Kenyan church owing to their sectarian political interests. The present political turmoil has exposed the Kenyan clergy as no better than their flock and worse still even politicians.
The Kenyan clergy have slowly and painfully discovered that they are no longer relevant to our lives which they hitherto patronized with religious impunity. Not any more. And with that the purse strings have been tightened. Well, speak of failure of responsibility akin to chopping the very hand feeding you.
Desperate situations surely call for desperate measures. In rue NGO-speak, the Kenyan church is out shouting in confession of their sins. Deep down they must be aware that their self-rediscovery amounts to too little too late. The horses have bolted and their frantic efforts to shut the kraal are an affront to our national intellect.
Reaping abundant irrelevance
The lords of dogma must be deluding themselves that Kenyans are robots to believe their belated promise and readiness to confront the politically divisive forces. Most of these tribal pastors and ministers received their ultimate price when their kinsmen rose to power and they were promptly roped in the schemes to retain the implements at all costs. They don’t see the need nor rationale to fight for a war already won.
There is no free lunch and our church leads must be ready to confront the monster they unwittingly help create. They are the present epitome of moral rudderlessness. The punch in any pastoral letter will never fly past the pulpits they are mouthed. They must go mute and honestly strategize on how to start on a clean slate to regain the lost moral high authority.
The church is simply reaping where it sowed in abundance. No need for crocodile tears. They failed to lead by example and from in front before and after the STOLEN POLLS. The men of cloth abused our collective trust and proved that they are unique bed fellows with politicians both sheltering under a selfish umbrella as the rains viciously pound Kenyans. Muge must be tviolently turning in his grave.
