APOSTLE Benjamin Murata of New Life Pentecost Church says Madzibaba Ishmael is misleading his followers by barring their children from being educated.

He used his Sunday session to explain the importance of education urging people to desist from following Madzibaba Ishmael’s doctrines, especially when it comes to educating their children.

“As church, we cannot remain silent about such indoctrination of church members in the name of hearing from God and worshipping,” said Apostle Murata.

“Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently,

“But, watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted.

“The Bible clearly teaches us that if anyone thinks they are something, when they are not, they deceive themselves. 

“Madzibaba Ishmael’s followers must open their eyes and understand that they are being taken into an abyss.”

He added:

“Denying children an education and the use of health facilities is murder and diabolic.

“Biblical Paul was taught by a renowned Professor of his time named Gamaliel and that education helped him a lot in his ministry.

“We should commend other people for doing better than yourself not being impish and fool yourself and the whole congregation to believe such doctrines.”

He also challenged Madzibaba Ishmael.

Saka Madzibaba Ishmael kana vachivenga chirungu nekufundisa vana kuzvikoro vadii kufamba vasinakupfeka, vadii kusashandisa phone?

“Varikushandisa michina pakubika chingwa, kugaisa chibage, nehumhizha wekuveza simbi zvavakadzidziswa nevamwe.

“Iron sharpens iron, Madzibaba Ishmael must not fool the whole world by his misguided doctrines.

“God cannot be limited to his group of followers camped at Lily Farm in Nyabira, he must not bewitch his followers when he himself attended school, acquired birth certificates for his children and paid lobola for his wife.”

Apostle Murata’s wife, Ottilia Murata, son Abraham and one of his pastors, Tafadzwa, came to church wearing their doctorate gowns to emphasise the importance of education.

Apostle Murata commended Madzibaba Ishmael for teaching his followers to work.

“We commend Madzibaba Ishmael for creating jobs and farming but the use of child labour is an abomination and unacceptable.”
