HEALTH and Child Care minister David Parirenyatwa, on Wednesday left the audience in stitches when he called for increased condom use among church members due to the surge in the number of cases of church leaders sexually assaulting congregants.

He was speaking at the official launch of the new scented condoms by PSI Zimbabwe in the capital.

Parirenyatwa said that it was unfortunate that some church leaders could not resist engaging in sexual activity and as such members should be careful and resort to condom use to prevent HIV and Aids, sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancies.

"There are some of them (church leaders) out there who just can’t resist. I would urge them to use condoms because we have some religious leaders who just can’t resist. So I would urge them to use condoms so that they are protected," Parirenyatwa said.


Of late, cases of sexual abuse of female congregants have been on the increase, a development that has led to some of the churches being banned from conducting services.

RMG Independent End Time Message Church leader Robert Martin Gumbura was this year sentenced to 40 years in prison after being convicted on four counts of raping church members.

"Sometimes, people feel shy to ask for condoms and the end result might be disastrous. We were even proposing that even in the hotels, condoms be placed inside the Bibles that are placed inside the rooms so that even those who are shy to ask for the condoms can be able to get them without difficulty," Parirenyatwa said.

It's the heart that has to be guarded by a wall of holy fire and not waste energy guarding the sexual organ. The planning of sex is finalised in the heart before the actual act.

WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, HEALTH and Child Care minister David Parirenyatwa, U can play with any other things of this world, But when it comes to the BIBLE, leave it alone. Through the same media you have used, I beg you to apologise to the body of christ - all churches in the world. I think even the Devil himself is angry with your statement. Manditsamwisa sitereki minister. Go to your nearest man of God and confess. Manga makura zvakanaka wani. Apologise and restore your respect. We love you minister.

Iwe Jonhso:
Ordinary men decided which books would make up the bible and which should be trashed-- by voting, at Laodicea in 365: a few books were included that would later be omitted, and the Book of Revelation was rejected. Revelation made it in at the Council of Carthage in 397, but the Book of Lammentations was out. Things were still being argued as late as 629. Protestants did not decide on which books should be in their bibles until 1647, at Westminster. Do you seriously call that "holy"?

Selele: It was ordinary man under the influence of the holy spirit. So, our Holy God, in the person of the Holy Spirit, literally breathed the holy words of Scripture into the writers of each of the books through supernatural means. The divine Writer is holy; therefore, what He writes is holy.
Holy meaning, sacred, sanctified, or hallowed. And then you take your condoms and put them in such a sacred book
You might find these verses to be useful.
2 Tim 3:16: All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness...
Hebrews: 4: 12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

P/S. In the same bible it is written, a fool in his heart said there is no God.

You are an exemple of ONE BIG problem ALL christians have. You all defend the bible using the bible. This is a problem which ALL real scholars have with "believers" like you. There is no way a biblical quote can help me because it is those writings which are at the centre of discussion.
