INIETTE DAVID ON THE REVOLUTION TODAY!!!

Published

on

never heard nor witnessed such a negative revolution in morality as it is today in this 21st century, which has so dissentized, demoralized and dehumanized our consciences. When we look into our world today, there is a sense in which can acutely agree that we have lost our sense of moral and cultural values. We can agree as well without any iota of doubt that we are bankrupted of all behavioural standards on all fronts. Today, our actions ultimately lack ethical considerations, in so far as they satisfy our momentary fleshly desires. Today, the West sees God as the ultimately inexistent one. Oh the tremendous attempts that we have done to redefine the truth reality, just acting as if the truth is not there. We have chosen to believe the ” noble lie” even when the truth is sprawling and looming large before us. We have characteristically removed the right and every sense of it from our daily routines and relations. Scientifically, we try on daily basis to distort the sense of guilt and moral condemnation, after a wrong doing. We have intellectually washed our minds from just and moral motives. Gradually, we have educated ourselves into moral imbeciles. Now, we are merely crawling beasts with sinister intentions. We are dead men and moral zombies. How does it feel when the husband pours acid on the wife and disconfigures her face on the account that she is too beautiful and perhaps, may be hijacked by another man on the road. Whatsort of savage primitivism? Who knows if we will not start trading on humans again as legitimate economic goods so soon? Who will help us from our ” selves? ” The government has no answer. Expatriates in science and sociology have no response. But down the pages of the sacred Book of the ages – the Holy Bible, the answer comes glaringly in the words of the eminent apostle Paul: ” I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation, to everyone that believes…(Romans 1:16-17). Truly, it is through Christ in whom, with whom and by whom we can have our fallen human nature refashioned according to the original intentions of the Ultimate Designer. Friend, my mentor will say, ” I present to you the person of Jesus Christ, who is the absolute way, the truth and the life, in here and hereafter, to the Father. You can decide for Him today, because, He is the ultimate solution to our ultimate problem- the total depravity, guilt and sinfulness of all men. Stay blessed!

Pastor E. A. Adeboye lays foundation for International Worship Centre in Uyo

Published

on

Despite strong criticism, the Akwa Ibom State Government has gone ahead to lay the foundation for the ultra-modern 8,500 capacity International Worship Centre in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

The foundation laying exercise was conducted by Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the Senior Pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God before the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel and a host of Christian faithful across the State.

Location for the million-naira edifice is at Banking Layout, off Udo Udoma Avenue, Uyo, and upon completion, the religious structure would function as a point of congregation for all religious activities within and outside Akwa Ibom State.

Governor Udom Emmanuel who spoke at the foundation laying ceremony described the occasion as spiritual, and performed to fulfil the vision of those he called ‘founding fathers’. These founding fathers, he said, had named the State after God and committed her affairs into his hands.

Reading from Psalms chapter 127, The Governor explained that the decision to raise an Altar for God was an avenue of attracting more of his divine blessings on the Akwa Ibom State. He spoke about the State, being an indivisible entity whose strong cords cannot be severed by politics and tribal sentiments.

The Governor appreciated Pastor Adeboye for responding to the State’s invitation and laying the foundation for the building. He also thanked the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and other religious bodies for their support and called on all-and-sundry to contribute meaningfully towards the development of the building.

In his sermon, Pastor E. A. Adeboye lauded the Akwa Ibom State Government for deeming it fit to provide a befitting edifice for the worship of God, likening the Governor to the biblical Solomon who built a temple for God.

The State Chairman of CAN (Christian Association of Nigeria), Rev. Dr. Ndueso Ekwere also offered his goodwill message on the occasion, and expressed delight that Akwa Ibom can now be counted among the States with a befitting worship arena.

Church Elders Engage Pastor in Physical Combat as another Ordination Ends in Fiasco in Uyo

Akin to the infamous Reigners Church ordination which ended as a tragedy, knowledge about the occurrence of yet another woeful ordination at Wua Iboe Church this  time around is circulating on print and social media.

 

The unresolved issues involving the Qua Oboe Church would be said to be far from over as the ordination service that was scheduled to take place today at 112 Ikot Ekpene road turned soar as Elders and Deacons of the Church turned the pulpit into a battle field.

 

News correspondent  who were in the church during the ugly incident have disclosed that the ordination of Elders by the Resident Pastor, Ibup Emma did not go down well with the rest of the Elders as they vehemently opposed raising their voice even while service was ongoing, thereby turning the church into a rowdy football pictures.

The Elders who stood up from their seats, approach the Resident Pastor in a bid to stop the ordination and were shouting on top of their voices “no, no, no, no”. All these were captured on the numerous television screens around the church. Pastor Ibup Emma on being harassed by the opposing elders used the Microphone to call on the security forces, DSS to come in and rescue the situation. This caused majority of the congregation to scamper for safety as some had to leave the church while others stayed to watch events unfold.

A reliable source within who pleaded for anonymity also divulged that the Elders opposed the ordination as the resident pastor did not get the approval of the church committee. It would be recalled that the church has been engulfed in irreconcilable differences with name change controversy with a section answering Qua Iboe Church of Nigeria and the other answering Qua Iboe Church, Nigeria with United Evangelical Church as an appendix.

Akwa Ibom State governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel who is a member of the church, had about a year ago made an effort to broker peace by reconciling Qua Iboe Church of Nigeria and United Evangelical Church into one conference. The peace which held at government house had leadership of the two conferences in attendance.

The governor had noted that what was perceived as division in the church was not really a division but a disagreement on the name to be used for evangelism added that they were charting a way forward towards resolving the issue ” .

Nigerians; A threat to the holy land?

Published

on

The negative perception by most members of the international community about Nigerians is gradually becoming a serious issue of concern to well-meaning citizens in the country.

Prelate Isaiah Issong, General Overseer of the Believers Assembly and board member, Nigerian Christian  Pilgrims Welfare Board, (NCPWB) Akwa Ibom State chapter expressed utter displeasure at the way Nigerian Pilgrims were embarrassed and tagged ‘security threats’ at Jerusalem while on pilgrimage.

The clergyman who was also a contingent to the holy land narrated how the tour guides disdainfully treated the Nigerian pilgrims and called on Policymakers in the country to come up with measures that would wipe the dent off the faces of innocent Nigerians, especially in the diaspora.

In the Prelate’s words, he said;

”When we arrived the holy land we were never addressed as a Nigerians but Boko Haram and Militants.

“Nobody sees anything good about a Nigerian. Once you come in contact with even fellow pilgrims from other countries you are welcomed with embarrassing questions relating to the fight against Corruption and insurgency.

“Outside this country, every Nigerian, no matter how highly placed is seen as a potential criminal. Once any foreigner sees you with a green passport you are dreaded and branded a heartless and dubious criminal suspect. We were exposed to ridicule and great embarrassment.”

Prelate Issong blamed this ill perception by the international community on the negative reports they receive about Nigerians, and therefore called on all to have a change of mindset, and also work positively and in dedication to the Nigerian project.
