In all this time, none of the Christians remembered or dared to recite The Last Commandment. My friends and I kept asking all of them to say the 10 commandments, the Seven deadly sins and Jesus' last commandment. You see, anyone can twist the Bible around. No one dared to say except "death upon you". We moved from apartment to apartment because we feared being lynched. These are the people who call themselves Christians. One time when Mahtma Ghandi visited Mother Theresa in the slums of Calcutta, she asked him, "if you love Jesus so much, then why are you not a Christian?". His reply "Because of Christians. If Christians followed the teachings of Jesus, there would never be a need for another religion". YES, people stay away from your churches because of your Christianity. A following that judges and advocates for murder, the things Jesus came to change. Have you lost your minds?
Christians make Jesus weep. Christians bring back the brutality and rigid laws that Jesus came to erase and died for. Jesus is one of those leaders you want to be your teacher daily. Jesus was an amazing teacher. If you visit our library (mine mostly as all the kids and husband each have a library), you will find out that most of my books are only Spiritual, Economics, History and Computers). Oh yes, many biographies of great people are on the shelves too. We give God a bad name. Think about it.
One thing that has always been stuck in my head is a quote from Mother Theresa.
"Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat".
This is Holy week for all you pretentious hypocritical and born again Christians. Reflect on why Jesus was born. He came to teach us a new and easier way to connect to His father. AND he did an awesome job of it. Who are you low lowly humans and who gives you the right to write off people? To condemn them, even that is in one of your 10 commandments (never bear false witness). Who are you to choose who dies and who lives? Who exactly gave you such powers? If you think that you are right, then definitely you are wrong. God never makes any mistake. Everyone of us was created in His image. So you go out and defy Jesus' teachings and yet claim to be a Christian. Have you lost your minds? READ the New Testament one more time and pay attention instead of listening to your Basumba.
Let me show you a picture. A picture of someone you murdered in Uganda. And you have chased many away but your poverty, unemployment, sickness, lack of medicine, etc. continue. OR did you by any chance read about all your murders in the country now? You sanctioned murder. You could be next. When your most high profile people get murdered, then who are you? Even the good Lord will walk away from you because you chose to murder others, God's children.
Rest in peace brother. You fought a good battle. It is now up to us, your siblings and friends to tell Uganda that murder is a crime no matter who is murdered and no one should ever sanction it.
