False prophets on the prowl … Stay away from them, or they will ruin you – Bishop Maduwike tells Anglicans

The Supervisory Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Owerri, Rt. Rev. Emmanuel Maduwike (JP) has warned Christians not to rely on the prophecies and inferences of today’s men of God’, stressing that they are all false prophets and evil doers.
He sounded the warning while preaching a sermon during his Episcopal visit to Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Obazu Mbieri, in Mbaitoli Local Government Area of Imo State last Sunday.
The prelate noted that the wind of gospel was very high and it is difficult to differentiate between fake and true ones.
Taking his text from Colosians 3:16, the Bishop, who made it clear that no one can take away another person’s destiny, wondered how a hardworking person can take the destiny of a ‘foolish and lazy person’.
He warned Christians not to be deceived by ‘these fake prophets and men of God’ who use their fake prophecies to wreak havoc in homes, adding that many Christians have been blinded by ignorance.
Bishop Maduwike narrated how God led the Colosians from darkness to light, adding that Christianity is a practical religion.
The Bishop further explained that the ignorance of the word of God is the worst thing that could happen to a Christian and warned youths against inordinate ambition.
He enjoined the faithful to “let the word of God dwell richly in you”, stressing that’ “when it dwells in you’ your life; work, attitude and character will be influenced positively”.
The glorious service, which was well attended, was conducted by the Vicar, Ven. Feddy Mbalisi, while the first and second lessons were read by Rev. Canon Casmir Ukonu and Rev. Ben. Ejihu, respectively.
The mood was very festive as the entire congregation was visibly excited on the Episcopal visit of Bishop Maduwike who was a former priest of the church. The choir and the band rendered anthems and praises which made the service most lively.
In his vote of thanks the Vicar of the church and the Archdeacon of Obazu Mbieri, Ven. Feddy Mbalisi, expressed gratitude to Bishop Maduwike and his wife, Mrs Anulika Maduwike (Nnedinma) for the visit.
Rt. Rev. Maduwike, who is the Bishop of Ikeduru, was accompanied on the visit by a heavily loaded entourage among who were Sir and Lady Samuel Kamange, Barr. Sir and Barr. Lady HAG Amadi, Sir Foster Uwakwe and Sir Ephraim Oguzie.
Also present at the service were the Managing Editor of Christian Voice Newspaper, Sir Martin Ebe, and his wife Lady Chinyere Ebe.
