The Zimbabwe Council of Churches (ZCC) has expressed its anxiety on the impending visit of the leader of the Family Peace Association, Dr Sun Myung Moon. The local clergy does not agree with the teachings and practices of Dr Sun’s Movement. In a statement released today, ZCC said
Zimbabweans, especially Christians have been raising anxious questions regarding the impending visit of the leader of the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification.
As ZCC in light of our convictions and Christian traditions, we do not identify with the teachings and practices of this movement and therefore we will not participate in their event. Always be ready to make your defence to anyone who demands from you an accounting for the hope that is in you; 16 yet do it with gentleness and reverence.’ (1 Peter 3 verse 15).
