Students form group to fight ‘cult’


A Christian student group is using peer pressure to eradicate cultist movements in educational institutions.
Student leader of the Lutheran Renewal Church Tensy Bonny confirmed forming a group named Student Flame, comprising students from different institutions.
Bonny said they mingled with peers to influence them to end cult and illegal activities in schools and tertiary institutions.
He said members of Student Flame would arm themselves with Bibles and share God’s words with peers, who were forming groups to practice cults and unchristian activities.
“Student Flame consists of students from every church denominations and not only Lutheran Renewal church students,” Bonny said.
“We gathered at Sapsap village,10km south-west of Goroka town in Eastern Highlands, last Friday as an inaugural meeting to launch Student Flame,” he said.
The theme of the movement is “be still” according to administrator of Lutheran Renewal Church of PNG Pastor Gibson Sikondowe.
“Students who are members of Lutheran Renewal churchstarted this group,” he said.
“They started it after getting sick and tired of seeing cultist activities in schools destroying academic capabilities of students.”
