Pastors warned against telling followers to abandon ARVs

43

Malawi’s ministry of health has urged religious leaders to stop the tendency of telling their followers to stop taking ARVs after they pray for them.

This has come after the ministry observed that a lot of people are dying after being convinced that they have been healed through prayer.

Chief of health services for the ministry of health Dr Charles Mwansambo said the tendency must be discouraged as it is leading to the death of many people.

Dr Charles Mwansambo: We need to change our teachings.

”Am a believer, I do believe in prayer but there were times when Jesus healed the sick using soil this shows that there is power in medicine,” said Mwansambo.

He added that it is against the scriptures to stop people from taking ARV’s because there is need for divine interventions which need scientific approach of which God gave us.

Mwansambo further said that the tendency has taken lots of lives and there is need for of pastors to have a regulatory body which will monitor their work.

He added that in other cases they should be banned as they are misleading people.

Same miracle monies, this means every body on earth was supposed to stop working sometime back after the discovery of miracle monies this is foolishness!! OnlyJesus the only gotten true son of God could do that but without demanding money or anything from people, but now others taking chances using his name as their income generating activity sent by devil azakulangani kwa Mulungu kilibe zohonga (corruption)

Matthew 6:33 says ‘seek ye first the kingdom of God and all shall be added unto you’ now if we are seeking Gods healing power through the so called men of God how could they say that we have to stop taking medication?its high tym we search the spirits behind them!’yambani mwafuna mizimu yawo ili yochokera kwa Mulungu’
