Primate of Nigeria Encourages People to Look Unto Jesus
The Archbishop and Primate of the Church of Nigeria, The Most Revd Henry Ndukuba offered a clear and unapologetic response to the defection of former Bishop of Rochester, Michael Nazir-Ali to the Roman Catholic Church.
He was interviewed by the Anglican Church of Nigeria’s TV outlet, Advent Cable Network Nigeria.
“We always encourage people to look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. He [Nazir-Ali] is an individual, though a very strong leader of the church. With what has happened I think that if he feels that it is what will keep him trusting and focusing and depending on the Lord until Jesus comes, I wish him the best.
“But for us, we will stand for the Lord, Jesus Christ within this Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), upholding the power and the authority of the word of God, trusting God in every situation and above all, living by the word of God.
“Even if you go into the monastery and you have not really decided to follow God, changing of Church won’t help. It is not changing of church or changing of name, it is changing of heart
“God will keep his church. For us, there’s no going back, we keep holding unto the Lord. That is why we need to keep looking unto Jesus and not to man.”
The Church of Nigeria launched ACCNTV station has been broadcasting since 2013.
