An Anglican priest has denounced Christianity after serving in the church for 30 years up to the position of a canon.
Thiongo wa Kinyanjui opted Agikuyu traditional gods saying they make more sense than the Biblical one.
Kinyanjui revealed that he changed his name from Canon Peter Kinyanjui after finding himself on the theatrical road to Damascus”.
His last moments before abdicating his ecclesiastical career saw him serve in the United Kingdom at St John’s Parish Church of England.
He denounced his Christian faith in 2020 and started convincing people to ditch Christianity, claiming it was a “foreign faith”.
“I urge our people, members of the Agikuyu community, to ditch Christianity and trace our roots to traditional ways of worship because I have gained the revelation that Christianity is a form of foreign culture that brainwashes us to leave our god,” said Kinyajui.
Kinyanjui also claims that Christianity blatantly disregards the role that the living dead play in the society by admonishing those who respect them but ironically they refer and pray to the dead from the white community.
“There are so many churches named after the dead who are regarded as saints. In fact, we remember them in liturgy books by praying for them and asking them to intercede for us. That is not the case when it comes to our community.
“The living dead from our community are actually regarded as ngomi, the living dead but from the word, we were told Satan is known as ngoma in Kikuyu. This is what I’m now demystifying in my course of duty,” said Kinyanjui.
Kinyanjui advocates for traditional forms of worship while donning religious clothing, a strategy he says has earned him attention to many who he ends up converting.
“If I wear the Agikuyu traditional regalia, many will dismiss me as a ritualist but I wear religiously so that they lend me their ears and this strategy has worked wonders,” said the 57-year-old man.
