Ugandan president repents of personal, national sins


Ray: I am reposting this blog article as it relates to religion. In that one of the things being confessed is the adherence to secularism. Yes Secularism is a religion. The term “Secular Humanism” was first coined in the early 20th century. You may wish to read the “Secular Humanist Manifesto” at some point. It is a filled with the statements “We believe…”. One of those beliefs stated is in the philosophy called Evolution (It’s not a science). God says there are only 2 religions. One is the religion of recognizing Him and more specifically His only begotten Son as God and creator. The other religion is the religion of man. I also include this article because contrary to public opinion, politicians do influence and legislate morality. That is why religious beliefs are an important factor in how we are led as a nation (in whichever nation you are in.)

The Bible says “lean not unto your own understanding.” The ills of mankind all stem from attempts to lean on our own understanding and our rejection of God. It is refreshing to find that a politician is willing to confess the sins of himself and his country. If only more politicians would do this perhaps God would heal our land (In each of our respective countries) as He promises to do if we confess our sin.

2 Chronicles 7 – 14 if my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Watch now to see what great things begin to happen in that country. Now is a good time to invest in Uganda for you investors out there.

The Ugandan newssite New Vision reports President Yoweri Museveni celebrated Uganda’s 50th anniversary of independence from Britain at the National Jubilee Prayers event by publicly repenting of his personal sin and the sins of the nation.

“I stand here today to close the evil past, and especially in the last 50 years of our national leadership history and at the threshold of a new dispensation in the life of this nation. I stand here on my own behalf and on behalf of my predecessors to repent. We ask for your forgiveness,” Museveni prayed.

“We confess these sins, which have greatly hampered our national cohesion and delayed our political, social and economic transformation. We confess sins of idolatry and witchcraft which are rampant in our land. We confess sins of shedding innocent blood, sins of political hypocrisy, dishonesty, intrigue and betrayal,” Museveni said.

“Forgive us of sins of pride, tribalism and sectarianism; sins of laziness, indifference and irresponsibility; sins of corruption and bribery that have eroded our national resources; sins of sexual immorality, drunkenness and debauchery; sins of unforgiveness, bitterness, hatred and revenge; sins of injustice, oppression and exploitation; sins of rebellion, insubordination, strife and conflict,” Museveni prayed.

Next, the president dedicated Uganda to God.

    Ray, I am afraid that I must disagree with the statement that “One of those beliefs stated is in the philosophy called Evolution (It’s not a science).” Although, technically, you are correct. Evolution isn’t a science any more than gravity is a science. However, both of these can be studied through the scientific process.

    Science is a process for studying and understanding observations. The observation here is evolution. Contrary to popular belief, it was not discovered by Darwin. The fact that organisms changed over time has been known for centuries. You only have to compare a great dane to a chihuahua to understand this. Darwin’s contribution was to propose a process to explain how it works. We now call this the theory of natural selection.

    Creationists often argue against evolution by saying that it is only a theory. But that is a false argument because they do not understand what a theory is from a scientific perspective. The first step in science is to develop a hypothesis to explain something. You then test it through experimentation and observation. Through this process the hypothesis may be modified or completely thrown out. It is only after it has been tested extensively without being falsified that it may become a theory. And a theory is as close as science ever gets to fact because there is always a possibility, however remote, that new evidence may arise to prove a theory wrong

    To date, there has not been a single observation or experiment that is not consistent with the theory of natural selection. This may change but it is not something that I would be willing to wager on
