The Primate of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), His Grace The Most Revd Henry C. Ndukuba, has urged all Christians to unitedly resist homosexuality and bestiality.
Primate Ndukuba made the call in Abuja while addressing the 2023 Divine Commonwealth Conference (DIVCCON) titled “What Is That In Your Hand.”
The homosexuality is a practice where persons of the same sex have sexual intercourse together while bestiality is the practice of having sexual intercourse with animals.
Ndukuba said the church was inundated with internal and external battles, adding that the body of Christ had come under attack by a revisionist agenda.
According to him, there are similarities between the experience of Moses in the Bible and the church of God in Nigeria today.
The cleric said that Moses was gripped by doubt and insecurity which resulted to doubting his own capabilities.
He said that the church on the other hand, was inundated with internal and external fierce battles, contending against the evil revisionist agenda of homosexuality and bestiality, deceitfully manipulating poor nations with money.
“The global church is under fierce attack of heresies and revisionist ideology of the West.
“We must continue to stand strong against them in the power of God with the little resources in our hand,” he said.
Ndukuba said that God desire to partner with Christians to use feeble resource and skill to demonstrate His power and glory.
The cleric said that Christians must overcome fear and step out in faith, trusting God to bless all endeavors and crown efforts with success.
“Like Moses, we may feel inadequate or ill-prepared or not equipped for the task before us. However, God’s question reminds us that it is not about our own abilities but about His presence and power working through us,” he noted.
In his remarks, The President of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Archbishop Daniel Okoh, said that Nigerians were in difficult and uncommon times.
He said that the zeal displayed by Christians every year at the conference gave hope, adding that there was hope for Nigeria.
Okoh said that CAN platform was an opportunity for all Christians to unite and make positive impact in the nation.
“In the world of today in which we wage war against poverty, disease, hunger, corruption, immorality and ignorance, Christians must not only pray but seek ways to pull our forces together and defeat all that challenge our very existence.
“In Nigeria, God has given us a platform that has an elaborate structure through our fathers of faith, which makes work for Christian unity easier.
“Nigeria is the only country in Africa where all Christians agree to come under one single umbrella in fellowship.
“Hence, CAN must be seen as a gift to the body of Christ in Nigeria,” he said.
The cleric urged all Christians to get more involved in the activities of the association especially now that the ecumenical space had been widened to encourage a deeper engagement of professionals from all fields of human endeavour.
Okoh said that CAN remained non-partisan and must not be seen as an opposition party to government of the day.
He, however, said that the platform must engage from the point of clear knowledge about issues and continue to raise prophetic voice to guide those in authority and pray for them to succeed.
