Gone Swahili

The following are Swahili statements I got from a Children’s book called “Kitabu cha ajabu.” Lets go!

Mungu ni Mtakatifu. Hii inamaanisha kuwa yeye ni MKAMILIFU, hawezi kamwe kutenda chochote kisicho kizuri na cha haki.
God is Holy. This means that He is COMPLETE, He cannot by any means do anything that is bad or unjust.

Dhambi huharibu uumbaji mkamilifu wa Mungu.
Sin destroys the complete creation of God ~ it messes with the “completeness.”

Dhambi inamtenganisha binadamu na Mungu ambaye ni Mtakatifu na Mkamilifu.
Sin separates man from God who is Holy and Complete ~ because it messes with the completeness.

Wote wamefanya dhambi na kupungukiwa na utukufu wa Mungu.
All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God ~ there is a level/amount of glory but cannot attain God’s threshold of glory.

And on that note, did you know that Kiswahili is an official language in Kenya? That you can actually address your official documents and communicate official information in Swahili? Maneno haya yangekuwa kwa Kiswahili lakini sijakimanya kwa ukamilifu, siwezi zungumza kwa mamlaka au kama mwenye amri kuihusu lugha yetu hii. Kiswahili kitukuzwe.
