Government needs to work with spiritual leaders

Sadly, some leaders have given in to greed which has blinded them from the major mission of guiding the country to elect Godly leaders.
I completely disagree with people who say that spiritual leaders should not discuss and or talk about politics. First and foremost, politics is all about leading God’s people to holistic development.
Spiritual leaders have a duty to change politics as a dirty game into politics as management of society and resources in accordance with God’s will.
Sadly, some leaders have given in to greed which has blinded them from the major mission of guiding the country to elect Godly leaders. It is time now for all of spiritual leaders to repent and return to guiding the country. Guidance should be based on God’s love, unity of the people, truth, justice and honesty to all people.
The government has to heavily invest in morals, spiritual life and rehabilitation of values through schools and all learning institutions.
Instead of government and state leadership fighting spiritual leaders and counsellors, they should engage them in the ministry of morals and values rehabilitation.
This will lead to a smooth relationship between government/state and spiritual leaders.
