Cleric Admonishes Christians To Always Live Honest, Faithful Life
BISHOP of the African Church, Agege Diocese, Rt. Revd. Hezekiah Adeleke Adetoro, has admonished Christians to live honestly and faithfully at all times.
At the ninth yearly Conference Thanksgiving Service and Merit Awards of the United African Methodist Evangelical Cathedral Church, themed: “Celebration of God’s Faithfulness,” Adetoro bemoaned the unfortunate decadence in the society and heaped the blame on gross dishonesty, social or financial pranks permeating the nation, which according to him, has brought about insecurity, economic unrest and political instability.
“Nigerians, irrespective of religion, tribe, creed, discipline or political leanings, should live happily and heartily in God’s honesty, faithfulness and genuine service to mankind. This will enable us turn around the society and the nation to God’s glory, as well as love one another, which starts genuinely from their homes and appreciate God and mankind,” he said.
He reiterated the need for Christians to renounce sin, fight crimes and other vices that might destroy the nation. To this end, he enjoined husbands to be very honest to their wives and vice versa, as well as the leader to the governed, thus promoting equitable justice and distribution of democratic consolidation.
The cleric reminded Christians to justify God’s expectations for a better nation and transparent leadership, and the anti-graft agencies should renew the masses’ confidence in the Nigerian project by cooperating with the judiciary for speedy investigations and persecution of corrupt practices.
