Tattoos are Satanic – Bishop Monchusi

Published

on

One very controversial topic that often comes up among Christians is whether or not they should get tattoos or ink on their bodies. Should Christians get tattoos? Would it be a sin for Christians to get tattoos? The answer is NO, according to clergyman Bishop Edward Monchusi.

The leader of Pentecostal Protestant Church in Kanye warns that people with tattoos are under the influence of Satan and that they should repent and get saved before it is too late. He says that people do tattoos out of ignorance and also to look fashionable.

He says even though they may look harmless on the outside, they communicate something in the spiritual realm. For example, someone with a butterfly tattoo according to the bishop is never stable, and goes from one man to another. This, he says, is popular among women.

“What you see outside is just the manifestation of what has been going on in the inside. You’re coming out in the open,” he warns. Other common tattoos, he says, are of scorpions, snakes and knives.
He tells The Midweek Sun that the same goes for dressing rings. “For example, wearing a ring sculptured with an aphrodite.

An aphrodite is a goddess of sexual love. It means you are married to that spirit. People must refrain from these tongue, bellybutton, and nose rings. God created you complete. Don’t feel inferior by harassing your body which in turn affects your soul,” he says.

Women challenged to step-up food production

Published

on

National Development Bank CEO, Lorato Morapedi has challenged women to take up more agribusiness ventures to cut down on the country’s food import bill.
With an annual P7 billion food import bill hanging over the country, Morapedi said women can significantly trim it down. “We need to get out of our comfort zones, let’s open our eyes and seize the opportunities,” said Morapedi, adding that women need to work in groups.
She emphasized that women should leverage on collective expertise found in clusters to grow the country’s food production sector.
“Grab the opportunities that exist with the food value chain,” she said, citing that women have been hard-hit by COVID-19 in their endeavors to put food on the table.
She further implored women not to shy away from finance development institutions (FDIs) to finance their projects. Morapedi bemoaned that a handful people are willing to go into food production despite the high import food bill that the country faces.
Very few people are doing food production; people are lazy to go into food production,” said Morapedi. She also highlighted that the country’s major supplier, South Africa is also not coping as COVID-19 challenges unravel.
