Pastor Who Was Sacked For Separating With His Wife Rainstated By The Force Of Church Members.

Faithfuls of ACK church in Othaya, Nyeri County have always wanted their pastor who was sacked for being unmarried to be rainstated.

To have their way they held demonstrations on Sunday claiming that their archdeacon John Gachau hadn't committed any crime warranting termination of his services.

According to church members who spoke to Citizen TV, John's wife left him and has never shown any sign of coming back to her husband.

They vowed not to allow anybody to preach to them apart from their Spiritual father whom they love so much.

Members decided to take the law into their own hands when they went to pick Mr Gachau from his home to come and preach them.

They threatened to withdraw their allegiance from the area Bishop whose previous attempt to sack Gachau was blocked by the court.

Administrations of most Christian Churches Insist that church leaders Should be married and have families before leading others.

However, in the Catholic church, priests take celibacy vows to remain unmarried for the rest or their lives.

Nevertheless there have been calls to allow them permission to marry due to increased cases of sexual molestation perpetrated by the unmarried priests.

Do you think men of God must marry before running a church? Feel free to share your thoughts and comments on this on our comments platform.
