Good leadership hinges on moral tenets – Anglican Fathers

From the Anglican Church in Nigeria

Leadership at all levels in the Country, including the Church, has been challenged to stand out in condemnation of the quest for materialism and ill-gotten wealth prevalent in the society. Delegates to the 11th Annual Men’s Conference, Diocese of Egbu, Christian Fathers’ Association, (CFA) made the call in a 11point communiqué at the end of the conference held recently at Holy Trinity Church, Nekede in Owerri West Local Government Council. It urged the leaders not only to express disapproval of such vices but also to strive and toe the line of moral rectitude and proper Christian living.

Conference delegates who also expressed dismay over the problem of homosexuality in Christendom, contrary to biblical teachings and practices, associated itself with the philosophy of the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON) held recently in Jerusalem. It commended the vision of the Primates Council of GAFCON and called on all Christians, irrespective of their denominations, to uphold the teachings of the Bible.

It noted with regret that such unbiblical and false gospel has paralyzed the Anglican Communion world-wide and called on all GAFCON Bishops and Churches to remain resolute in ensuring that the Communion was reformed around the biblical gospel and mandate to go into the world and present Christ to the nations.

Conference delegates were satisfied with the Conference theme “Take off your Sandals for the place where you are standing is holy ground”, describing it as apt in every Christian life and advised Fathers to identify their sandals of cultism, immorality, adultery and other mundane tendencies in their lives, so as to take them off in order to embrace a new creation in Christ. Some Christian Fathers, the Conference delegates noted seemed to be losing faith in God because of some afflictions upon them and urged such persons to continue to build their trust absolutely in God who would always see them through in all their depressed situations.
