RELIGION

It is common to find many youth in places of worship fervently seeking God, for one reason or other. However, many have been accused of spending way too much time in church, other than splitting their time between prayers and productive work.

Bishop Elijah Sebuchu, a senior pastor at the Kampala International Christian Centre in Kyanja, Kampala, urged the youth to work hard, in order to fight poverty.

He told the youth that there is no short cut to getting rich in life, except working hard.

"Spending the whole day in church and not working will not yield much. For one to survive in this world, they have to work. My advice to the youth is to start up small businesses, trust God and desist from practices, such as corruption, theft and other vices that can ruin your future," he said.

Sebuchu also appealed to the President to ensure that whoever is caught in corruption scandals, regardless of their political inclination, should be punished as the only way the country can fight the vice.

While addressing a press conference at the church, he also called upon religious leaders to stop "washing their dirty linen" in public if they are to be a good example to their followers.

David Ekene, from Team Greater Tomorrow, who is also a Nigerian musician, urged Christians to help those in need, not only during the festive season but at all times, as a service to God. 

He said they should do so prayerfully, such that God rewards them for their good gesture.

"Share the little you have with the needy. Share the message of God's love and a gift of redemption through Christ, and invite the needy to participate in church activities," he said.

Ekene was in the country during the festive season to entertain and pray for Ugandans.
