Stagnation Effects Of Article 108 Of The Constitution To Celestial Church Of Christ
I was flipping through the amended copy of the ‘Constitution’ (Blue Book) of the church which has been condemned by the law to be an ordinary History Book and I can realize that the power arrogated to anyone who will be referred to as a ‘Pastor’ after the late Founder, Papa SBJ Oshoffa is so enormous that the followers will perpetually remain ‘Zombies’ while the honey and milk of the church will strictly be shared amongst a caucus.
I didn’t study law, those who study law and are competent in their field should interpret this section of the constitution to us in layman English for better understanding of all and sundry.
“The Pastor as the ultimate Spiritual Head of the Celestial Church of Christ worldwide shall be vested with the sole ultimate and unchallengeable (Only God has such powers) authority on all matters affecting church life, be it planning, organisation, doctrinal standards and the spread of doctrines, education, legislation or discipline, the provisions of this constitution notwithstanding….”
Don’t you think that aspect of the constitution should be trashed, and a more practicable one be put in place, such that the fundamental tools will make it mandatory for the occupier of the stool of the ‘pastor’ become answerable to the ‘Senate’. That’s what a proper church should be, and not as we have it presently, growth can never be achieved without some core fundamental changes, the Church itself is bigger than the office of the Pastor, hence, there is the need for those saddled with the administration of the affairs of the Church to endeavor to put the interest of the Church and the people under it first ahead of that of the office of the Pastor, after-all the office of the Pastor is that of service to God and man.
As far as we know, we really don’t have a constitution yet, according to the pronouncement of the court, ever since the time of Papa Bada the emergence of anyone to the position of a pastor is fraught with anomalies and thus null and void in the eyes of the law and by extension the court, yet our beloved church, the supposed ‘giant’ is yet to wake up to reality.
So, anyone who brags with this history book as a reference to back up for his office is only making a clown out of himself because this Blue Book has been relegated by the only recognised constitutional authority, that can mediate on issues which is the court, to a mere History Book.
