The Anglican Church in Mombasa yesterday joined the “miracle babies” fray.
The church’s bishop in the area, Julius Kalu, condemned what he termed “prophets of doom” whom, he said, were misleading Christians that they had healing powers.
He said it was wrong for church leaders to lure followers by claiming that they had divine powers so as to “con” them out of their little earnings.
“Some prophets of doom in the country have assumed ‘powers’ to the extent of lying that they can perfrom the miracles that Jesus did,” said Kalu.
The cleric was speaking at Cathedral Church during a thankgiving service for Mombasa Agriculture show which will start on Wedneday. “I believe God can give somebody powers to heal but I do not see how they can have powers to make a woman conceive without a man,” he added.
