Audio Visual Christians!

04 Feb

Corruption, impunity, dispensation, these names are often used to describe the guys in power or some leaders. Few people step back to review their lives in relation to these names. What does it mean to be corrupt? Or is this a prestigious vice set aside for the ‘who is who’ in the society? Do you think you have engaged in any corrupt, impeditive acts today? In order to answer these questions objectively, we need to decipher these terms. Corruption (misuse of public office for private gain) varies form patronage to kleptocracy. Let us stop at this point and press the rewind button! Patronage which is believed to be ‘baby corruption’ means giving favors to some person, group, or institution. Kleptocracy then becomes the ‘corruption father’ in the literal means being governed by thieves (corruption at its very best). Now that we have that settled, let us talk about our involvement in corruption. At this point you might want to move from this blog, but you have come this far, so what is there to loose? Let’s indulge! Edmund Burke said “all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Sitting in the living room hurling insults or having a conversation with the presenter on the other side of your television set does not count as part of doing something. Now you see why being audio visual Christian is imperative? The need to walk the talk cannot be emphasized enough.

It is known that the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23) but what about them that stand on the side of the road and watch the thief still the side mirrors of the car across the road? Is it enough that he (by-stander) malevolently talks about the rampant rise of crime in the safety of his house? What the ‘by-stander’ does not take into consideration is that the car being vandalized could have been his and there could be witness who cursed under his breath and walked on. Being morally upright, steering clear of the trouble and living right is proper but not enough. More ’round the clock’ Christians and less ‘Sunday Christians is what is needed.

This weekend challenge is to go the extra mile of being a Christian. Them that are deemed to be corrupt did not wake up one morning and to find themselves corrupt; it’s a vice that had been fed over years. It might have started with jaywalking, moved up to littering, before long they were paying for good grades, and now holding the country for ransom. Just like the mustard seed, corruption grows but so does the audio visual Christian.

    I received an sms that was sent to me by mistake by an army officer.It said “Siz nitumie majina na ID ya Ken.Nimeongea na Kianga CGS wa DOD na amekubali kuchukua Ken pamoja na vijana wengine 4 kujaza nafasi hapa A.F.T.C. kwa jeshi”

    Why should senior army officers fill in vacancies in the army with relatives, yet recently thousands of young Kenyans went through rigorous interviews to fill the same vacancies.If there are 4 nafasis to be jazwad,why cant the army choose from those who had already been interviewed.
    I have the mobile number of the Army officer who sent the sms.
