Bishop Ogunedo urges Nigerians to speak out against evil

The Anglican Bishop of the Diocese of Mbaise, Rt Rev Chamberlain C. Ogunedo, JP, has admonished Nigerians of all walks of life to speak out when they see evil being perpetrated in the society.
In a sermon at the Cathedral Church of St Michael and All Angels, Ife Ezinihitte Mbaise, Imo State, the cleric called on the congregation and the Christian faithful to “be steadfast in your belief, speak the truth always and when you see evil, speak out.”The bishop said “there is no small sin” and berated those who think they can get away with infractions of the law and the commandments of God.
He said that the pervasive crimes afflicting the country today, including kidnapping in which even a bishop’s wife, priests and children, are not spared, are on the rise because there is no more fear of God.
Advocating for a return to true worship, the Diocesan assured that “God will never fail to bestow His Glory to those who love to worship Him.”
To the Home and Abroad women who were concluding their annual August Meeting with a Thanksgiving Service at the Cathedral, he gave kudos for their strivings every year to bring progress and development to their community.
He warned against envy, stubbornness and disobedience to their leaders while advising the executives to always ensure transparency by timely and honest account of their activities.
Bishop Ogunedo prayed for God’s continued blessings for all in the remaining months of the year, and wished that all would see its end in good health.
