The Cleric also advised leaders to seriously consider an option to oil, which has been generally acknowledged to be agriculture. Speaking on spiritual matters and the state of the church, Oshoffa said: “Every member of the Church is called to follow the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ on love and oneness. This Church is to be one throughout the world. It is set up to cleanse the world, as well as cleanse the spirit and the body.
“Anybody who accepts that Jesus Christ is the Son of God is a true child of God, who will experience joy and peace with no darkness in his life.
