So the Church may have neglected an important work – the discipleship of nations. The Church of Jesus Christ is “the pillar and ground of truth…” (1 Timothy 3:15) This means it’s the foundation of reality.

The Heavenly Father’s knowledge regarding all things must permeate society. This, in part, is a mandate of the gospel of the Kingdom of God. It’s a right concept of the Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ and the Kingdom concepts that must infuse human life, like salt seasons food, light fills a dark room and a little leaven affects a whole loaf.

Every generation has their teachers. There is a future coming for which there are poorly taught and trained leaders.

Alright, more poignantly, in Zimbabwe, there is a bunch in need, my age mates, millennials born about 1981 to 1996 and Generation Z born from about 1997 and following have known no other example in power but ZANU-PF.

Since independence, these budding leaders have had a poor example in the political space. They have seen bloodshed for power, corruption, poverty and scattered opportunities.

The confusion and fear has distanced many of them from taking responsibility. Today’s circumstances have intimidated them from joining but tomorrow’s imperatives will demand that they do.

Every age has its teachers. ZANU-PF and its top leaders have the teachers of their generation. Men like Apostle Ezekiel Guti were sent to them in the 1960s, missionaries like Pastor Tom Deuschle were introduced in the 1970s. In his book, ‘Building People, Building Dreams,’ Pastor Tom speaks of arriving in pre-independence Zimbabwe, getting into communities on bicycle, guitar on back. There are many other men & women in the church…who were so assigned.

But who is going to teach those born 1981 and following….some of them 20 to 35 year olds today. Some are afraid of entering the space today. For good reason…people were shot in the streets in their sight on 1 August 2018.

They didn’t see pre-independence gun-fire….they are not trained in the battle of bullets.

Theirs is not a generation of guns…it’s a generation of ideas….bullet points…

Who will be their teacher?

That…the Heavenly Father hates the spilling of blood..

That the Heavenly Father hates a false witness…a liar

That the Heavenly hates the perversion of justice…

Who will be their teacher?
