The Anglican bishop of Soroti Diocese, George William Erwau, has cautioned Christians against greed, witchcraft and hatred, saying such vices ruin the nation.


Delivering his Christmas sermon at St-Peters Cathedral Soroti, Bishop Erwau urged Christians to repent as the Savior Jesus Christ is born to them.

“Such evils have broken many families. Let those evil acts end now and we begin a new chapter,” Bishop Erwau preached, saying that witchcraft has diverted many Christians from serving the Lord.

“Many of you are in evil prison where you are engaged in acts of witchcraft and other acts. I urge you to shun those evil acts before the end of the world reaches,” bishop warned.

Preaching to hundreds of worshippers, Bishop Erwau, however cautioned people to be peaceful in their celebrations.

“It’s merry-making, not fighting. Celebrate well and be blessed,” he said.
