Pentecostal Prosperity Pastors and their ignorance of the bible version controversy: Bishop David Kiganda mis- interprets Pastor Solomon Male’s stance against divorce

Hebrews 13:4 - Marriage [is] honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

Matthew 5:32 - But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

Bishop David Kiganda who recently married a wife from Zimbabwe after divorcing his former wife has been parading the argument that his action is right because divorce is permitted in  Mathew 19:9 according to him. He bases his defense on the problematic Luganda Anglican version of the bible which is similar to the NIV: The counterfeit NIV says in Matthew 19:9 that:

I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.”

And its problematic  sister Luganda bible says:  

Era mbagamba nti Buli anaagobanga mukazi we, wabula okumulanga ogw'obwenzi, n'awasa omulala, ng'ayenze: n'oyo awasa eyagobebwa ng'ayenze.(Luganda bible)

Other counterfeit translations translate Mathew 19:9 as follows:

And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.” (New American Standard Bible (NASB))

8-9 Jesus said, “Moses provided for divorce as a concession to your hard heartedness, but it is not part of God’s original plan. I’m holding you to the original plan, and holding you liable for adultery if you divorce your faithful wife and then marry someone else. I make an exception in cases where the spouse has committed adultery.” (The Message (MSG))

`And I say to you, that, whoever may put away his wife, if not for whoredom, and may marry another, doth commit adultery; and he who did marry her that hath been put away, doth commit adultery.' (Young's Literal Translation (YLT))

The indomitable King James Version translates Mathew 19:9 as follows:

Matthew 19:9 - And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except [it be] for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

Before I show you why KJV translators used the word fornication, let me prove to you that the above bible translations are of the devil, because they tell lies, yet we know that God is not a liar , it is the devil who is called the father of lies (John 8:44). For example the KJV translates Mark 1:1-2 as follows:

The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;

As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

Now verse two is found in Malachi 3:1 and verse 3 is found is Isaiah 40:3 , so,  that is why KJV translators translated it as ; it is written in the prophets. Which prophets?? Of course, Isaiah and Malachi.  The verse ‘’ Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee’’ is not found anywhere in the book of Isaiah.

Now, let us see how Bishop David Kiganda’s counterfeit bible versions tell lies when  it comes to translating Mark 1:1-2:

The beginning of the good news about Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God, as it is written in Isaiah the prophet:
“I will send my messenger ahead of you,
    who will prepare your way”—
“a voice of one calling in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the way for the Lord,
    make straight paths for him.’” (New International Version (NIV))

1Okusooka kw'enjiri ya Yesu Kristo, Omwana wa Katonda. 2 Nga bwe kyawandiikibwa mu nnabbi Isaaya nti Laba, nze ntuma omubaka wange mu maaso go, Alirongoosa oluguudo lwo; 3 Eddoboozi lye ayogerera waggulu mu ddungu nti Mulongoose oluguudo lwa Mukama, Muluŋŋamye amakubo ge;(Luganda bible)

The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.Even as it is written in Isaiah the prophet, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, Who shall prepare thy way.The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make ye ready the way of the Lord, Make his paths straight;

1-3 The good news of Jesus Christ—the Message!—begins here, following to the letter the scroll of the prophet Isaiah.Watch closely: I’m sending my preacher ahead of you;
He’ll make the road smooth for you.
Thunder in the desert!
Prepare for God’s arrival!
Make the road smooth and straight! (The Message (MSG))

These counterfeits also call the Lord Jesus Christ a son of gods(Daniel 3:25) and contradict the fact that David killed Goliath(2 Samuel 21:19) ; The new NIV has collected this verse after being exposed.

Attack on the bible
Therefore, we can not trust these bibles when it comes to authoritatively teaching about divorce. 

In May this year Pastor Solomon Male challenged Bishop David Kiganda’s reliance on counterfeit bible versions to defend his divorce . The wise Pastor Solomon Male quoted from the King James bible.

Read: The day Pastor Solomon Male biblically Challenged Bishop David Kiganda Divorce & Remarriage

Pastor Male Rightly argues that Mathew 19:9 allows a man to divorce his wife in case of fornication. According to the Jewish culture chastity and virginity for that matter was a highly esteemed virtue. Therefore a Jewish man could divorce his wife in case he discovered that she was not a virgin or in case the woman fornicated before marriage.

24 When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife. And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife;Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the Lord: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance. (Deuteronomy 24)


18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily. 20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. (Matthew 1)

Bishop Michael Kyazze wedded Pastors David and Cindy Kiganda at his Omega healing centre: He has preached on the view that the bible allows divorce on Pastor Kiganda's Kingdom fm radio

Pastor Male never said in his letter that a gentile Christian should divorce his wife in case he found her not a virgin

Bishop Kiganda has said on his radio that Pastor male has come up with a new teaching that allows male Christians to divorce their wives in case the they discover that they are not virgins. Pastor male did not apply this scripture to gentile Christians.  Pastor Male’s letter has no such thing. Pastor Male has categorically stated that the bible preaches forgiveness and reconciliation as far as Christians are concerned. Dear Bishop David Kiganda you should apologies to Pastor Solomon Male for misunderstanding his letter.

There is no way Mattew 19:9 can apply to you Pastor Kiganda unless you want to declare your self a Pharisee pastor

In Matthew 19:19  Jesus was addressing him self to Pharisees with hard rebellious hearts. It is a shame for a born again Christian to associate himself or herself with rebellious hard hearted Pharisees. Remember the Pharisees  operated under the old  covenant. There is no way a new testament Christian, who was washed by the blood of Jesus can associate with such a Pharisee attitude. God hates divorce and there is no verse in the bible whatsoever that allows a born again Christian to divorce his wife. There is averse that allows Pharisees or biological  Jews  to divorce in case their wives committed fornication before marriage. There is also a verse in counterfeit bible translations such as the NIV and the Luganda bible that allows Pharisees and biological Jews to divorce in case of sexual immorality or adultery or whoredom-whatever that means!!

Falling into the same error of supporting tithing for born again Christians using Matthew 23:23  

In Mathew 23 the Lord Jesus Christ calls Pharisees hypocrites and serpents. In Matthew 23: 23 the Lord supports the tithing of the Pharisees but rebuked them for neglecting justice , mercy and faith. Now, prosperity  pastors such as  Bishop David Kiganda have used this verse to argue that Jesus approved tithing for born again Christians. Tithing was part and parcel of the law and hence the old covenant  and hence the  Pharisees were right to keep that. In the new testament tithing does not make sense simply because we are not under the law anymore. That is why the apostles never tithed and never quoted Malachi 3:8 to intimidate Christians that they are under the curse for not tithing. So, Bishop David Kiganda, one of your major problems is understanding the context of scripture. That is why you support divorce and tithing.

The tithe on Trial: Exposing the Golden Calf of Today’s Prosperity Gospel



Bishop Kiganda’s bible has so many errors and hence can not be trusted

One of the of the major weaknesses of the Pentecostal prosperity movement in Uganda is the love and trust in emotions instead of God’s word. Last Sunday a Pentecostal pastor was reading from Jeremiah 1, a verse where Jeremiah told  God that I’m only a child but according to this pastor’s New Literally Translation bible, Jeremiah said I’m a youth. The pastor’s interpreter was reading a bible where Jeremiah said I’m a child , while the pastor read ,I’m a youth. It is surprising that this ‘spirit filled’ pastor can not see that youth and child are not the same. That is why the devil looks at ignorance of the word in the Pentecostal movement and he laughs. How can you talk of revival when pastors are not aware that they are drinking from bibles  contaminated by the devil.

For example the Luganda bible :

lies that Erukanani killed Goliath

Awo ne waba nate entalo n'Abafirisuuu e Gobu; awo Erukanani mutabani wa Yaale-ole-gimu Omubesirekemu n'atta Goliyaasi Omugitti, olunyago lw'effumu lye lwaliŋŋnga omuti ogulukirwako engoye. (2 Samwiri Essuula 21:19)

It calls Jesus a son of gods

N'addamu n'ayogera nti Laba, nze ndaba abasajja bana nga basumuluddwa, nga batambulira wakati mu muliro, so nga tebaliiko kabi: n'okufaanana kw'ow'okuna kulinnanga omwana wa bakatonda. Danieri Essuula 3:25)

It tells lies

1Okusooka kw'enjiri ya Yesu Kristo, Omwana wa Katonda. 2 Nga bwe kyawandiikibwa mu nnabbi Isaaya nti Laba, nze ntuma omubaka wange mu maaso go, Alirongoosa oluguudo lwo; 3 Eddoboozi lye ayogerera waggulu mu ddungu nti Mulongoose oluguudo lwa Mukama, Muluŋŋamye amakubo ge;(Luganda bible)( Makko Essuula 1:1-3)

It calls Jesus a sinner..remember Jesus got hungry a number of times

naye nange mbagamba nti buli muntu asunguwalira muganda we, alizza omusango; (Matayo Essuula 2:22)

Pastor Robert Kayanja’s emotional miracle moments and emotional revival:

How can you talk of revival when Christians can not even differentiate a genuine from  a counterfeit bible translation??

How about Matthew 5:27-28  Bishop David Kiganda 

I remember one time I foolishly supported a certain church elder’s divorce and re-marriage. Fortunately,  the church elder came back to his senses and went back to his wife before divorcing and re-marrying. After this incident  I started reflecting seriously on Matthew 5:27-28. When it comes to adultery, which we men take as ground for divorce because of reading  counterfeit bible versions, we usually think about it in terms of the physical i.e. having physical sexual intercourse with a man. However, adultery is also an issue of the heart according to Matthew 5:27-28. If adultery is an issue of the heart how many times have married men cheated on their wives. Dear Pastor Kiganda, how many times did you cheat on your wife in the heart when you were still a young Christian or even a mature Christian. According to the word of God, the one who cheats physically and the one who cheats ‘spiritually’ or metaphysically are all adulterers.  If men were to be honest, we would never support  the divorce of our sisters who have been caught in   physical adultery. 

Bishop Kiganda attacks the King James Bible 

Bishop Kiganda thinks that the translation of the KJV in Matthew 19:9 is a fake one. According to him before the KJV, the bible was already there. He seems to think that the KJV is so recent to be trusted. He needs to know that the year of translation is not important but rather the manuscripts from which it is translated. The KJV is translated from the received text and the mosoretic text. It is  no doubt the best English translation. It is the best because it is had best  translators, superior text and superior method of translation. We need a Luganda bible based on the mosoretic and received text, other wise, the Anglican Luganda bible  that is being used by born again Christians in Uganda has so many problems as shown above. Many born Christian are using bibles from the sinaticus and vaticanus catholic manuscripts as well as the Hort and westcort Alexandrian texts.

The word fornication in Matthew 19:9 makes no sense : oh really!!!

According to Bishop David Kiganda, the word ‘fornication’ in  Matthew 19:9 makes no sense to married people because it talks about people who are not yet husband and wife. Of course it seems not to make sense because this scripture has nothing to do with gentile Christians although we think we can force it to apply to Christians by reading from counterfeit bible versions. It has to do with Jews under the mosaic law and not Christians of the new testament. Please!!! Please mind the context of scripture.

You have Opened the Pandora box  

Dear Bishop David Kiganda, you have opened the pandora box because some Christians are going to emulate what you have done. How will you tell Christians in your church to forgive or reconcile when you your self did not live up to this example? Do not be surprised when even women use the same verse to divorce their husbands. Do you know that some pastors, elders and born again Christians in Uganda have already fathered children out of wedlock? What will you do if these women who have been so patient with their adulterous husbands swing into action and decide to divorce by using your so called Matthew 19:9 translation .   

God bless you
