Heeding God’s command solution to Nigeria’s problems, says Kolo


Diocesan Bishop of Kutigi, Anglican Communion, Rt. Rev. Jeremiah Kolo

The Diocesan Bishop of Kutigi, Anglican Communion, Rt. Rev. Jeremiah Kolo recently lamented that the global Church has strayed away from its worship of God, and is now more interested in such immaterial debates as same-sex union and feminism, which are contrary to biblical standards.

Speaking on the theme: “Back to Bethel,” at St. Paul’s Church, Fazhi, Niger State, where he delivered his 2nd Session of the 3rd Synod of the Diocese, the Bishop called on Christians to repent and rid themselves of every idol that has taken the place of God in their lives.

Using the biblical story of Jacob, the cleric said like Jacob, the global Church had neglected the gospel of salvation, but in pretense, keeps building altars at ‘Shechem,’ while simultaneously allowing idols to be worshipped within its fold.


He lamented that the Church has been caught in the intricate web, where many have compromised their faith in order to align with globalists and popular opinions, even when such are against Jesus’ teachings and worship of the Lord.

He said: “What the Bible teaches about God and salvation has been set aside to accommodate philosophies, which has led to many calamities the Church is facing today.”

Noting that Nigeria is a very religious country with places of worship in almost every street, Kolo said sadly enough, things have remained the same in the country, where corruption and crime rate have increased. He said Nigerians are good at paying lip service to serious issues, especially on things that concern God.

The cleric noted that the only solution to the legion of problems facing the country is for people to heed God’s command and return to Bethel, which he described as God’s dwelling place, a home of peace and rest from trouble, sickness, and stagnation.
