Nigeria’s attempts to Islamize will fail – Anglican Primate
Of Obinna Odogwu, Awka
Archbishop, Metropolitan and Primate of All Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Bishop Henry Ndukuba, yesterday warned Christians in Nigeria not to take lightly the attempts in some quarters to Islamize the country.
He said that persecution, suffering and conquest were some of the main tools used to achieve the goal of exterminating the Christian religion in the country.
The Primate, however, made it clear that the alleged attempts would fail miserably as Christians were always ready to defend their faith according to Biblical standards. Ndukuba spoke at the 2021 National Convention of the Joint Council of Knights held at Emmaus House, Awka, capital of Anambra State. His speech was presented by Mgr David Onuoha, Bishop of Okigwe South / Archbishop of the Province of Owerri.
âThe theme of this holy convocation, ‘Fight fervently for the faith’ (Jude 3) could not have come at a better time than now, given what we are witnessing today in the world, especially here in Nigeria.
âWe are all living witnesses of the plot to destroy the essence of our faith by consciously allowing postmodern culture to take center stage in our fellowship.
âThe attempt to denigrate the Bible and subject it to the shifting continuity of liberal philosophy which not only questions its authority but also challenges its long-held teachings and revelations about God, is not only absurd, but also very dangerous for faith once and for all delivered to the saints.
âFrom the day of its inauguration, heresy remained the most insidious and the most pernicious of the two enemies of the Church. Because it comes from within, it tends to weaken the foundation of faith through a subtle but dangerous distortion of the basic tenets of our doctrine and belief. tools to achieve its goal of extermination of the Christian religion. The attempt to Islamize this nation and indeed the whole world should not be taken lightly, âwarned Ndukuba.
The clerk urged the Knights to take the opportunity offered by their convention to devise a course of action with which the church could defend its faith.
