Ruth Matete made waves when she posted a long winded message castigating them for their hypocrisy.
She pointed out that her pastor and church friends who did nothing to help her when she was going through the investigations involving the death of her husband, Beloved John Apewajoye.
In the post she said she is done with religion.
“I am so done with fake people!! Done with religion!! Thank God, that God is not a christian. He is not religious,” she explained.
People misunderstood that to mean she has given up on God.
Which is not the case.
Ruth said,”Oh! If it had not been for the Lord, who was always on my side. The enemy would have swallowed me. I would have drowned in the waters. But my soul has found an escape. I have escaped like a bird from the snare of the Fowler.”
The post elicited various reactions among them was The Atheists Society of Kenya.
In a tweet, they wrote, “We have read reports that RUTH MATETE is tired of Christianity.
has invited Ruth to join our Society. We feel that her skepticism of religious faith will lead her to eventually become an atheist.”

Announcing the live session, Ruth wrote,
“It’s so powerful to trust God and take the first step even when you can’t see the rest of the staircase. Be reminded that the best opportunity isn’t always the first opportunity. When Jesus sent out the twelve disciples, He let them know that they might not be accepted the first time around”

“He said, “If people do not welcome you, leave their town and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.” That’s exactly what we as believers have to do when we’re not accepted. Shake the dust off and keep going. If the job didn’t call you back, shake the dust off and keep going. If people around you don’t recognize the God given gift hidden in you then, shake the dust off and move on because there’s someone else out there who will see your gift.”
Ruth continued in her post, “Keep reaching, keep trying, and keep shaking the dust off because it’s about to get better. There’s a blessing with your name on it about to be birthed. Receive it in Jesus name.”
