The youth must look into this. The fraction of factions in the church has really not help the growth of the church. We have stayed so long in the wilderness; I hope it won’t take us 430 years to wake up from our slumber. It’s 70th anniversary today, every Parish be it Mobiyina, Shonekan, Ovroboni, Omoge, Adeogun or what have you are all celebrating. This simply means that, all members of the church are one. The garment is white and we have remained to be called by one name, Celestial Church.
So, this faction of a thing that has led us to this point of no return likely has some people who are benefiting from it reason it has become a herculean task to abate. This submission by a member of the church, Bro. Tola Adele sure raises some issue the youths need to look into. Bless you!
“I am inspired to write this by the Holy Spirit towards the 70th anniversary celebration of Celestial Church of Christ.
As factional as this church is, it is noticeable that all the fragment parts are celebrating at the church at this precious moment. We all believe in the calling of Saint S.B.J Oshoffa and Celestial Church of Christ.
Only love can unite us as one. Love is the barrier breaker that unites us as one body.
Love is that force that brings two entirely different people together. It brings white to black. It unites African with Australian.
Love doesn’t care about race or anything. Love conquers and overcomes all differences.
Love doesn’t have limitation or segregation. Love is powerful than a magnet and more attractive like honey to the bee.
Hymn 773 is the content of my message today in this 70th anniversary.
By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have loved one another.
If we are truly followers of Christ and children of S.B.J Oshoffa, let us love each other regardless of factions.
1 Corinthians 1:10
“Now I beseech you, brethren by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ that ye all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgement.”
I no longer care whether you are a devotee of Ketu, Diocese, or any faction. I don’t care what your faction is. So long you are a son or daughter of SBJ Oshoffa and a Celestian, we are one and I accept you for that.
Ife lohun na ke, eje ka lo fe, gege bi Iwe mimo ti wi…
Those drawn to Christ are drawn to each other.
Celestial is one. Celestial Church is one Love.
All this factions are just boundary from making us love ourselves especially among the youths.
All I know is that, so far you are a Celestian, we are one. I don’t care about your faction neither do I give a damn about who you represent.
Question is how have factions help us or the church? Who has factionalism benefited? Only enemies of the church. Who Faction Epp?
Factionist has only breeded cocky and segregating Celestial Church which SBJ Oshoffa warned us about.
Ijo mimo nla Kan ni….
There is no point fighting ourselves because we are one body, sons and daughters of Oshoffa. We are similar and the same… No difference.
Let’s kick out faction to the bush and embrace each other.
The garment does not change…. The faction doesn’t make any difference between me and you and it doesn’t make you better than me.
My Advice to the Youth, Don’t be a factionist, let embrace and love one another.
CELESTIAL IS ONE.
Happy 70th Anniversary to all Celestians worldwide.”
