Correct past mistakes, Bishop Oluwarohunbi tells Buhari
The Anglican Bishop of Yewa Diocese, Rt. Rev. Michael Oluwarohunbi has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to correct past mistakes and make positive impact on Nigerians’ lives, as he settles down for second term.
While commending government for confronting some agricultural issues, as well as the fight against corruption and completion of some inherited projects, he warned the President to beware of the cabal and politicians nursing inordinate ambitions and expressed optimism there would be no repetition of what happened in the first tenure, where federal appointments were mainly for a particular section of the country.
Bishop Oluwarohunbi, who spoke during his Presidential address on the theme: “Behold, we have found Him,” delivered at the 3rd Session of the 10th Synod held at St. James Church, Oke-Odan in Ogun State, said leadership is an exercise in solving problems.
“The challenges we are passing through as a nation are man-made, which can be squarely dealt with, if the leadership is desirous of finding lasting solution,” he said.
The cleric stated that witnessing or soul winning is a very critical activity that every Christian must engage in as evidence that he/she has been found and saved. He said professing to be an Anglican or a member of any Church amounts to nothing, if one is not genuinely saved or does not bear witness to Jesus, Who purchased and redeemed man with His precious blood.
He noted that many Christians feel comfortable living their lives, attending church services and programmes, but are unable to share the Good News with people around them.
He said: “The Gospel has been relegated to the background. Witnessing has become old fashioned, if not totally dead, because the Church downplayed the art and power of witnessing, and Christians became self-seekers, with increase in denominational rivalries and insensitivity to God’s move and command.”
He highlighted diverse ways of witnessing to include tract distribution, house to house, billboards, radio and television, among others.
