LIFE MEMOIRS: CIVIL RIGHTS DEFENDER INCARCERATED FOR FORCING LEADERS INTO ACTION-PART ONE

LIFE MEMOIRS: CIVIL RIGHTS DEFENDER INCARCERATED FOR FORCING LEADERS INTO ACTION-PART ONE

Life Stories
In 2017, the Bushenyi district local government leadership ‘refused’ to approve a district service commission. This was due to many reasons, but the residents attributed the ‘refusal’ by the leaders to approve the commission to politicians fronting their personal interests at the expense of service delivery. To resolve the enigma, residents under a pressure group, Make Bushenyi Great Again (MBUGA) engaged in defiance activities that included the total lock down of the district offices to whip their leaders into action. Residents took to the district leadership to court, where they emerged victors.  The founder of MBUGA, Mr. Apollo Lee Kakonge, an activist and Executive Director, Western Ankole Civil Society Forum was in the process of bringing the district leadership to ord...
Stand warned on “Hyper grace”

Stand warned on “Hyper grace”

Life Stories
Beloved, I feel I should warn you about a terrible heresy that is flooding the banks of our spirituality, known as hyper grace. In my study, I have found the following article a good recap of what you should know about this poisonous teaching. Read and beware: The term hyper-grace has been used to describe a new wave of teaching that emphasizes the grace of God to the exclusion of other vital teachings such as repentance and confession of sin. Hyper-grace teachers maintain that all sin, past, present, and future, has already been forgiven, so there is no need for a believer to ever confess it.  Hyper-grace teaching says that, when God looks at us, He sees only a holy and righteous people. The conclusion of hyper-grace teaching is that we are not bound by Jesus’ teaching, ...

Miracles: Not every spiritual power behind a miracle is from God

Life Stories
Beloved, those who crave for miracles should stand warned! It is evident that as a result, some have fallen into very deadly and regrettable traps. Others have been abused, fooled, and cheated. By definition, a miracle is 'an extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and therefore attributed to a divine agency.' Whereas that is true, we know from the Bible that not all 'extraordinary events' are done by God. Satan and/or his agents can perform miracles (Exodus 7:22), and so not every spiritual power behind a miracle is of or from God. That's why John warns us: "Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits and see whether they are of God: because many false prophets have gone out into the world" (1 John 4:1). This means that...
The Love that Unites

The Love that Unites

Life Stories
As West Ankole Diocese, our theme is “Love that Unites ", derived from Col. 3:14. To some, this is only a reminder; to others, it could be information. It is possible for us to miss the meaning and significance of true love, especially due to the concept's abuse, misuse, and overuse. There are 'minds', especially the Greeks who have endeavored to distinguish between different types of love.  Modern anthropologists have also come up with several other types, including the fake and feigned ones. In a nutshell, however, many still agree that _agape_ love is the true, authentic, and objective type of love.  That's the love to which I'm referring here and hereafter.  It is that unconditional fondness, which remains intact, no matter what, or despite the conditions...
