December 31 2016:
Imphal West Pastorate Area Imphal West 1 and 2, Pastorate Jayenta Moirangthem today urged all the Churches in Manipur not to support the UNC and its endeavour to strengthen its protest.
The people of the State must understand the fact that Christianity is not a religion reserved for the people residing in the hill areas nor is every person living in the hills a Christian, Jayenta said.
Christianity does not endorse violence, therefore everyone following the religion should shun violence, he said.
Christianity teaches one to be compassionate and forgiving.
The teachings of Christianity will bear no purpose if the leaders themselves indulge or supports violence.
He has further appealed to all the concerned not to target all Christians or their religious institutes for unrelated issues.
