Celestial Church of Christ in the western world should really not be expected to perfect all acts concerning the doctrine of the church. I have said it on a number of occasions that this church was sent from above to Africa just as Mecca is located at Medina.
So many things we do here are direct opposite of what they do abroad, like the issue of full-time priesthood for our shepherds here in Nigeria, it’s not the same in any part of Europe and America as a lot of the shepherds could be best referred too as Part-time clerics because they do other things such as delivery and dispatch. They work as paid-servers, security men, carers etc abroad, the reason is because, no church member will pay his bills. Every man to himself, God for all!
According to information at our disposal, the situation at Clapham, Parish which was initially being led by Sup. Evang. Adigun, is a tense one. The elders of the church are saying no to having Adigun as a Shepherd in charge of the parish with virtually 60% of the female members, mostly young ladies, are fully in support of him as their shepherd.
Some of the reasons tabled by the elders of Clapham parish before Baba Nunayon and Pius Olarewaju, who were delegated by Rev. Mobiyina Oshoffa to look into the case for peaceful resolution, are that, Shepherd Adigun has not been a good representative as serious of issues leveled against him, some of which he was cautioned not to confess or admit to (#CNO has a voice record of that)
The meeting held last Wednesday 3rd of May, 2017 started around 9pm and ended a few minutes to 5am the following morning, Thursday 4th, May 2017. If we are to put the voice record online, it will, no doubt, bring shame to the church that is divinely acclaimed to be the last boat of Salvation. But the God of Celestial is Holy and those who serve Him should be Holy. Anyone who cannot respect the rule and regulation of this church should float another church and give it his or her own name.
Keep your fingers crossed as we bring bits and pieces of the meeting to you in our subsequent posts.
