Nagaland Baptist Church Council (NBCC) general secretary Rev. Zhabu Terhüja has reaffirmed the church’s “abhorrence” against factional killings, made public on several occasions, which he blamed on the ideology of the NSCNs that “power flows through the barrel of the gun”.
In a statement, he said unless this belief was recanted, killings would continue.
He said the national workers have “great political aspirations” also appreciated by all, though many of the political issues remained addressed. However, he said the present strife and enmity “have retarded the progression and have shattered all hope of the future.”
Rev. Zhabu affirmed that “killing brings only curse”. He said while all Scripture were written as inspired by the Holy Spirit; the commandment, ‘Thou shalt not kill’ in the Ten Commandment was written by the finger of God Himself. Therefore, he said, killing was “a serious matter that invites the wrath of God”
He said while people and organizations across the land endeavored to bring an end to factional killings, the NBCC regretted that when leaders of different factions “were prayerfully exploring ways” for reconciliation; killings and a high degree of destruction took place in Vihokhu on June 26,2008. He said the incident defied all spirit of goodwill and therefore, the NBCC strongly denounced the June 26 incident.
