The Bishop of Kaduna Diocese (Anglican Communion), the Rt. Rev. Josiah Idowu Fearon, has warned religious leaders to desist from all manner of flamboyant life-style, like using their positions to secure the services of security details for their private protection.
He asked them to stop chasing material things, thus competing with the rich whose sources of wealth, he said are not clean.
Addressing newsmen in Kaduna, the Prelate described the New Year as the beginning of an important milestone in Nigeria’s history, and prophetically assured that the country would not break up as being predicted.
His words: “My main reason for this prophetic statement is based on my connection that the one true God whom we worship keeps His covenant with His people…
Nigerians, he stressed, worship this one true God differently, though they have some irreconcilable doctrinal understanding of this one God,” he said.
“This one true God made it possible for this country to be put together in 1914. He has not changed His mind on this nation being held together, he averred.
Bishop Fearon said it was on this platform that both Christians and Moslems can hope to continue to be together even after the 2015 general elections, because, as he put it, “God is faithful and will not inspite of our madness and divisive tendencies allow what He has brought together to disintegrate’.
