“Fasting is mentioned in the Bible and the Koran, and although its practices differ across these religions, they each use food restriction and/or abstinence as a means of growing closer to God through repentance, increased gratitude, mourning and study” (Maayan Jaffa-Hoffman – ‘Faith and Fasting’ 18.09.2018, Jerusalem Post).
I know I could picked a various amount of sources and whatnot, but when I stumbled on the humble on this one. I ended there and it was fitting. As the Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) government commanded all of their civil servants, all of the public officials and everyone to pray and fast. Like a commando exercise(!) for everyone.
They didn’t even get to choose. The order was a memorandum from above. The ZANU-PF maybe think this is cute. To use religious and spiritual activity to boost moral. If they want to be a cult, fine by me. However, stop politicking and start a cult with Mnangagwa high priest and the Politiburo as its guiding organ. God knows whose the parishioners, whoever they trick and hustle. Because that they do with empty promises of entering the heavens gate with Mugabe as St. Peter. Awaiting to redeem their salvation or eternal damnation.
I am sure Charamba will defend the scriptures accordingly to Mugabe, as they fast and pray for themselves. They want to be cult so badly. They want to praise themselves and sing to the choir. I am sure they are playing one of the new Kanye West albums to get into the pseudo Christianity they are preaching as they are commanding prayers.
That is apparently what they did today. The ZANU-PF are insane by this move. They are pinning blame on outside forces, if not its a invisible third force, which only Queen Bee can explain and some briefcase company can aspire too. So they can pay their tithes to the party and the state.
The cult is already here. The team and choir is singing. The parishioners are dancing to the tunes and the message is spread. The missionaries are soon crossing borders to convert the ungodly among men. Peace.
